With the school holidays approaching there are guides everywhere about things to do with the kids
If you haven’t had an audience while you’ve peed are you even a parent? When you find yourself alone, go to the toilet. Use it, clean it or better yet have a bath! All in peace! You might even find yourself missing them!
What’s rare is wonderful. While you’re kid-free, top of your list should be a lie in. In reality, you will plan 12 hours undisturbed sleep and probably wake up at 6am as usual and not be able to fall back again!
It is such a blessing to have friends that have little ones and even better when they’re around the same age. You get to do playdates together, share tips, tricks and advise. But, do you ever actually get to finish one full conversation?
Whether it be in a café or in your kitchen. Get a coffee and enjoy it while it is still hot for a change! You could even go the extra mile and have a little treat too!
Take a trip to the cinema, even alone and enjoy the full movie without any questions or toilet breaks!
Usually, for us, we go out and meet friends separately while the other is with the kids. Take this chance to go together on a date just the two of you or with some friends!
One of my favourite hobbies is to read which I do far too little of at the moment. My first opportunity with some me time and I grab my book. Jump into the bath or even bed, cup of tea or glass of wine in hand. Bliss.
Say no more.
