Saturday Musings

Today is turning out to be one of those off and odd days for me, i have them once in a while and they never fail to get my family asking me "what was wrong with me?".
They are so used to seeing me in full wifey/mum/carer mode especially on the weekends, the few times, i just do nothing, they worry more than relax and enjoy that time with me lol.

Just not being "Me"

I woke up today and fell into an unusual but very welcome routine of doing nothing. My day started with a call from my father who lives abroad, (he is the best father in the world). I spent a few minutes with my children then went back to my room, i spent the next hour reading a backlog of newspapers with a cuppa, while dishing out instructions to my family on running the house for the day.

Hard for me to believe, but my bed is still unmade, i have not been in the kitchen or had a properly cooked meal today (snacking all day) and i have now taken over the couch, to watch my new found favourite programme, (NCIS).
I discovered this programme early this year and wonder where i have been since its inception (haha).
I guess reducing the time, i used to spend on online writing sites has given time for other interests. I live in the UK and do not subscribe to any paid channel, so i am watching old episodes but enjoying them.

My family are out shopping and i am home alone currently, i know there would be surprises and some questions when they return and find me not being super Mum.
I am feeling good anyway, i need to take a back seat, relax and not be too particular about chores as much.

I wish everyone a restful and peaceful weekend.
The Voice has come on now, so i will watch until, NCIS comes on.

Me too, I am just in from trying to get the garden ready to plant peas, and just realized I still have dinner to make...I really liked your article.
