Our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary



Like most parents we don't get out on our own enough.

Like most SEN parents we really need to make sure we try to get out on our own more.

Recently it was our 10th wedding anniversary, tin apparently, and we decided that we knew our friend and babysitter well enough to let her stay over with the children, puppy and chickens for a night while we went a few miles down the road for a night away.


I'm terrible at leaving the children, a natural born worrier, but I knew we had to do it.
Bob surprised me with a night of glamping in a very cosy and quirkily romantic luxurious yurt, complete with woodburning stove, outside jacuzzi, gypsy caravan shower, views to die for, champagne, lobster and fries.



I'll let the photos speak for themselves. Needless to say we had a wonderful time and really connected, chatted and remembered who we were. We all need to make room for the 3 parts of ourselves: an individual, a friends and partner and a parent and that applies whether our children have a disability or not.

  1. Congratulations to you both. Looks like an amazing place – Bob certainly came up trumps there! Great advice too about spending more valuable time together away from the precious ones, we all need a bit more of that I reckon. X

  4. Fair play to your OH for organising such a fab night away, he's definitely a keeper! My ex and I went on a few nights away when we had just one child, and one night away when Smiley was little, and I think it really helped at the time x
