Yes murderers get far less I know... but Mrs F and I have been married for 25 years. Unbelievable but true - well as long as we get to Tuesday :-)
To mark this amazing feat we are off on a holiday sans kids. Yes totally kid free - apart from the odd weekend and we haven't had one of those for years we've never had a holiday like this. 6 years back we went to Dublin for a couple of days for Mrs F's 40th - however that was the last dark days of drinking and one brilliant fun day was ruined by me being an arse on the subsequent day - getting my sulking drinking head on. Anyway in the past that now.
So we are off to Jersey for the best part of the week - why Jersey? Because that is where we had our honeymoon - see romance isn't totally removed from my arsenal yet :-)
The kids? Well now there is the worrying bit - they are being left to their own devices! Nan has offered Sunday lunch and a dinner in the week, one day they are off to Bluewater to see a film etc. and there is plenty of stuff in the freezer... given our son is a capable "living away from home" student I'm sure they will be fine and not starve... however what the house will look like when we return is anyones guess!
