As I’m the working parent – hubby stays at home – we haven’t really experienced this. When our daughter was in prep there was a deal on the Indian Pacific train that a child could travel for free with a paying adult. So during the school holidays, they flew to Perth, caught the train through to Adelaide and finally Sydney and then flew back from there. It was quite strange being at home by myself for the first time in years. But I actually quite liked it. I could watch whatever I wanted on TV, I could eat dinner later and so on. But I did miss them terribly. And it probably wasn’t the best idea to watch The Time Traveller’s Wife movie because it is about a husband, wife and daughter. I ended up bawling my eyes out!
