On Friday my Kids went to their dads for the weekend, for the first time in 20 odd years have I have a bit of actually me time, This was a time I didn’t have to wake up early and tend to breakfast or organise tea or do any washing this was actually all about me Totally awesome. So after reading a bit of MOM and some tips about taking control of me, I set out to do just that have a bit of me time, so on Saturday I did absolutely nothing no cleaning no dinner just me and my company, I watched a bit of tv and snacked on whatever I wanted to without being told I get fat or that’s bad for you, then I laid in bed and listened to the peacefulness that was around no screaming kids wanting this and that, total bliss, just the crackling of the wood fire and the singing of the birds, I know this won’t last so I am soaking it up while I can. So while I think about what I want out of life I realise this is it, just me being totally selfish or am I. This is what everyone should have a Me time without distraction of the kids the phone (which I turned off so I wouldn’t be distracted) or anything. While I totally adore my kids and couldn’t live without them, this was a time to get in touch with me and who I am, I realised im not just a mother I am a human who needs to be who I am, I still haven’t worked out that bit, but I sure with time I will, so I am already planning my next me time, I might go out and mingle with friends or family with the kids, so I do have the chance to be me. So if any one out there needs me time I would say go for it, it does wonders for the soul, I could almost mistake this for being heaven will keep you posted on my next me time
