There’s nothing nicer than being able to grab a bit of me time in my working day, even if its not for very a long, grabbing the lead and taking Molly Mac out for a walk round the park it’s just bliss 🙂
Well I have to say Molly takes me for a walk as she knows what she wants and where she wants to go ,It makes me laugh as she always heads straight for the flowers she’s defiantly a girly girl, ! I just love watching Molly running free and enjoying the fresh air, and I love the peace and quiet just walking round , as you know you don’t get much of that with a 22 month old toddler and as much as I love every minute with him I think you do need some time to yourself for your own sanity! and not to feel guilty for doing it!
Sometimes she actually looks like she’s smelling the flower’s ,so funny! and I end up saying do they smell nice… like I’m talking to my son it’s a good job people in the park know me as you might think I’m just a mad dog lady! I cant help it as Molly Mac has been with us for almost 5 years and is a huge part of our family she’s my best friend always there to greet me with her wagging tail, so eager to please and so loving, I love her to bits!!
Walking round the park enjoying all the wildlife, flowers and tree’s just makes me feel calm and relaxed, as a busy working mum I think grabbing a little bit of me time is great and gets me through my day, whatever you like to do make a little bit of me time for yourself. We all work so hard and as parents I feel we’re always giving every spare minute raising our little ones and as much as we all love doing that, I feel we do need to give ourselves a break. I’m always saying there’s not enough hours in day, I just don’t have the time?! It’s so important for your own wellbeing, and do it without felling guilty as if you’re like me I put everyone else’s needs before mine.
Enjoy a little bit of me time whatever you decide to do, a long soak in the bath, reading your favourite book, exercise, grabbing a cuppa and having 5 minutes can just make all the difference to your day!. 🙂
