I'm turning 50 in a couple of months and have just been and booked a flight to the UK as a birthday present. I've been procrastinating like you wouldn't believe about going as I was feeling weird (?guilty) about going on my own and leaving SO and boys to fend for themselves. Having booked I still feel not entirely comfortable, but it's done now and I'm looking forward to seeing my family and friends.
