I blogged some time ago about my lack of me-time. Well this morning I got some. An entire morning, no less, with Mr B at work and W in nursery. Did I savour every moment, enjoy every little minute, cram in all those lovely things I want to do but never seem to have the time? Did I?
Well, this is how it went. Picture the scene. It is 8am, the boys have left and I am snuggled up in bed. Awake.
Left ear fairy: Mmmmm go back to sleep
Right ear fairy: You could always get up and clean the bathroom you know. While it’s quiet.
Left ear fairy: Shhh, no sleep. You said you were going to relax…so….deep breaths…and relax.
Right ear fairy: But the sink is a bit grubby and you know you can never clean it properly when W is awake. You don’t want to have to do it at LUNCHTIME.
Left ear fairy: No, you said you were going to sleep. You promised me last night remember? That’s why we stayed up late drinking wine because we knew you were ok to sleep in. Remember?
Right ear fairy: But she is awake now
Left ear fairy: Just feck off you and let her RELAX! This is NOT RELAXING!
Grey-hair fairy: Um, excuse me folks but I’ve got more work to do here.
…and so it went. I didn’t get up. I lay there, not sleeping, not relaxing, until it was time to go and fetch W. And I still have a dirty bathroom.
So tell me folks, how do you relax?

I dont relax, my relaxing time sounds a wee bit like yours, I i sit on the couch I feel like I should either clean, if I’m blogging I feel like should exercising……………………..
LOL. I’m blaming it on the Irish Catholic guilt. It is unavoidable 😉
I wrote about this ages ago too! I find it so hard to relax since having Iyla. I don’t think it helps that I don’t get any time to myself in the day so nothing gets done, this means that I have a never ending list of things that need to be done, blog stuff, college stuff, housework stuff but no time to do it because in the evening I’m tired and want to do nothing! But I can’t relax then because I have so much to do! Arghhhh! X
LOL, sounds familiar

Lol fab post Hun, I can’t advise I have little devils in my ears.x
About the same as you 😉
Oh no, poor you!
When I finally get some me time, I go buy myself some comfort food and watch some tv. Or if I Have been really stressed I take a long bath and read, but I mostly read my textbook. But most of the time I end up studying for my relaxation.
You study? Really? Mmmmm TV sounds better 😉 thanks for popping by 🙂
