So instead, I'm planning.
Next week, I'll be going to Melbourne for two days. Once again, my husband will be attending a conference, and I will be holidaying. This time, Mum's coming to stay with the children. What a treat! And to add to the treatiness, Mum's excited about having been asked to do this.
So, what's good to do in Melbourne? I usually go to the Zoo, but this time, with no children, and not the emotional connection I feel with Sydney's Zoo, it might not be on the agenda.
Reading, knitting, a trip to the beach, maybe a movie?
