Word of the Week - 24th April 2015

This week my word of the week is...

Me Time!
(ok 2 words of the week!)

This week has been my first full week at home on my own while the twins are at nursery.

I am "me" again for a few hours. I am able to do what I want and need to do without any other demands on my time! Please do not get me wrong I love being mummy but it is lovely being me again.

I have found this week to be absolutely exhausting due to all of the school runs and adapting to our new routines. My mornings are manic as I whizz around the house getting as many jobs done as I can during the three hours. But I finally feel like I am getting the house under control for the first time in three years. My house jobs are getting done before the build up, the laundry bags are all nearly empty, tidying up is not taking as long thanks to keeping on top of them all.

Today I even went grocery shopping, on my own! I cannot remember the last time that I did this. I will admit it did feel strange being alone, not worrying about getting a parent parking space or looking for a double trolley. It felt strange not having them to talk to. But I was me, I was able to walk around looking instead of getting in and out as quickly as I could! I even went to more than one shop! 

I am also delighted to say that the twins love going to nursery so I do not feel guilty to enjoying my me time! I think we all need it at some point to remain sane.

As the twins are getting bigger I feel that I am getting more me time back. I am able to think of me more. I am certainly enjoying the new chapter in all of our lives.

 Shopping on my own!

As always I am sharing my Word(s) of the Week with The Reading Residence.

  1. Yeah to ME Time...even if the Me time is doing the supermarket shopping!

  2. Hooray for me-time! I've just started to grocery shop alone, as my mum has offered to have Little Man while I do it and it feels so luxurious! Glad that you're enjoying it and that the twins are settling in so well x Thanks for sharing with #WotW
