A toddler free day!
We had a hectic bank holiday weekend, so my mummy was prudent and booked off a ‘buffer’ day before she went back to work.
This was her rest day. A day where she just kicked back and relaxed. It was her bank holiday in lieu.
On Tuesday the weather was wet and miserable. It was dark in the house and she snuggled up on the sofa.
While people were busy commuting to work she was in her pjs and under a rug. She was happy that she made the decision to book the time of work and recharge her batteries.
She reflected on how lucky she was to have the opportunity to do this. A toddler and work free day, a break from the daily grind.
This is what she got up to.
1) She stayed in her PJs….ALL DAY! Lazy sod 😉
2) She had the chance to eat a full breakfast without having my little fingers pinch the red berries out of her cereal.
3) She watched some epic films including American Beauty, Wolf on Wall Street and Cloud Atlas.
4) She pottered aimlessly around the house getting side tracked – she spent an hour sorting out my clothes in my room!
5) She actually sat down with a cup of hot tea and read some of her book!
6) She managed to have a hot bath.
7) She watched some more telly and caught up on the news.
8) She surfed the Internet and did a little bit of blogging.
9) She organised herself, writing her lists and laying out clothes.
10) She caught up on sleep and dozed on the sofa…bliss!
When was the last time you had some ‘you’ time?
This post was inspired by one of my mummy’s #SoMum Twitter parties run by the fabulous Pippa@StoryofMum
The aim of the Story of Mum excercise was to say ‘yes’ to what she needed. This month my mummy needed some ‘me’ time at home x
How would you spend your ‘alone’ time?
The next #somum make date is on the 20th May 2015 – why don’t you pop over and have a look 🙂

That sounds like a totally blissful day. I could only dream but hoping it will happen one day 🙂 x
It’s sooo worth making time for yourself. Even if it’s just 5 minutes in the day to have a hot cuppa x My mummy was very lucky 🙂
Sounds like A fab day. I’d spend mine napping, bathing and heading out for a solo starbucks. Oh that would be heaven!
My mummy found it very hard not to sleep the whole day!!! Very tempting! Zzzzzzz Solo Starbucks and people watching would be great too x thanks for stopping by x
This sounds perfect. Am now wishing for a day like this. Maybe one day. I would watch tv that I want to watch and eat chocolate all day 🙂
Sounds like bliss! Well done for carving out some much-needed ‘me’ time 🙂 #PoCoLo
Brilliant, sometimes we need a bit of me time, just to recharge those batteries. Love a PJ day.
I am having some me time tomorrow and I really can’t wait! Glad you had a lovely and relaxing day #PoCoLo
Thanks Louise! Enjoy your day tomorrow x
Thats lovely to hear! I wish I can have one day off too! Thanks for sharing. #pocolo
This sounds amazing! So important to have a bit of me time. I’m not always the best at realising when I need a break but last weekend my fabulous husband took the kids for a couple of hours and sent me into town so I could get a haircut. He must have sensed I needed a bit of time to myself…. Either that or I needed the haircut really badly!
Oh how lovely – what a wonderfully relaxed day your mummy had and it sounds blissful. Hope that it helped recharge her batteries! 🙂
Sounds like your mummy had a wonderful relaxing day. Nothing quite like some mummy down time. 🙂 xx
Sounds like an ace way to spend a day. It’s needed from time to time x
That sounds like a perfect day to me – I’m having a similar one as Grace is off at her fathers 🙂 Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo x
Sounds like bliss! I’m now looking forward to returning to work so I can use my holidays to have days like these!
This sounds amazing. Beginning to end! Great post xx Thanks for linking up to #TheList xx
