So, yesterday Daisy woke up with a wee cold. Nothing too sinister, a runny nose, a few sneezels and a sore throat but it took me all of 2.3 seconds to declare it a DAY OFF SCHOOL! She was excited, Harper was beside herself and I was thrilled that I could potentially stay in my pj’s all day. Everyone was a winner baby that’s the truth! We stayed inside as it was miserable, misty and wet out. I lit the fire, we watched a gazillion movies, I made chicken wonton soup for lunch and then at the tail end of the day we went out for dinner to the local pizza place. That was what I would call a successful mental health day. A rest, a relax – I must remember to do this more often – sure you could do it on a weekend but it doesn’t have the same level of cheekiness about it does it?
My mental health well being is being boosted even further today. My bestie is coming down from Sydney for the night with only one of her kids (she has 3). Not that I don’t love her other kids – but she is bringing the chubby baby one, and they tend to give a little less attitude than anyone over 18 months. Yes, a baby being dressed in a wonder suit tonight in front of my fire followed by a gazillion wines and uninterrupted conversations with my mate will give me just the boost I need!
Tomorrow? IT KEEPS GETTING BETTER! A stay in the big smoke tomorrow night with my dirty big spunk of a husband in a hotel, sans kids. Oh yes! I don’t know where we are staying, or going out for dinner, but I know we will have a well earned, lovely time together. My little sis has the same Wedding anni as us so we might even catch up with them for a drink post dinner somewhere. Fun times! I have those little excited butterflies in my tummy when I think about all the fun stuff just about to happen…and there ain’t nothing better for your mental well being than those feelings I think.
I hope you all have a great weekend doing something fun with people that you love. See you on the flip side…
