Today, I really fancied a proper coffee. After dropping my daughter at her ballet class, I decided to have a wander (please read by that mad- dash rush!) into town in the 40 minutes I had spare to grab a coffee to go. Passing Boots on the way, I realised said daughter needed hair nets, grips and all things ballet bun related after the last lot seemed to have vanished into thin air, so I stopped off to make a purchase. By the time I had navigated the hair accessories aisle and contemplated whether the clear elastics which guaranteed tangle free would be better than the cotton ones (which also guaranteed tangle free) I realised that I was running short on time and so the coffee got exchanged for a wander (please again read mad dash rush) back to class to ensure I was there in plenty of time for the pick up.
My point of my ramblings is…us Mums (& Dads too) never really put ourselves first. It’s simply not our way to put our need for a coffee above the need for hair grips. So for goodness sake, put your feet up this weekend after the little people are in bed. Take half an hour away from the washing, clearing, planning etc etc and reward yourselves for being awesome. Because we are! For me, the coffee need has passed, but a nice bottle of wine is already chilling in the fridge!! Happy Weekend! Sally x
