So I went to Amsterdam last weekend for a catch up and celebration with my girlfriends – we all turned 40 this year! It was a great experience, and let’s just say that we behaved in ways that wouldn’t normally fit in with the “mum life”. Like getting up at 11am, and having a 2 hour brunch. With waffles. So many waffles. But the biggest difference from being away was just the sheer amount of headspace.
