This weeks challenge is a hard one for me. Challenge number 3 - 'Me time'.
Now....I have a 10 week old baby. Me time doesn't really exist in my world right now. Where I go, Max goes too. But just because you are a mum, does that mean you shouldn't get time for yourself?
Well today is the day. I have made a special effort to put down the duster, step away from the hoover and spend a bit of time being 'ME' - not mummy, wife, cleaner, cook or chauffer. Just me.
The sun is shining and my best friend's garden is calling. So what do I pack in my bag when it is just me?
Well the answer to that is - not nearly as much as when I have a 10 week old in tow! Today my bag contains:
- Wine (well it is summer....and you have to take a bottle of wine when you visit someone's house....right?)
I have had a lovely afternoon, and it has been great to spend some time alone. Don't get me wrong, I missed Max, but I think sometimes a couple of hours away is all you need to feel refreshed and re-energised, and ready to face more crying and dirty nappies. Good food (thanks to my friends excellent skills in the kitchen!), good weather and great company. And that is good enough for me.
