I took a “day” (well, from when the children were at school and nursery) off yesterday. I dropped them off, watched Big Girl’s performance at her Christmas concert, then I went into town, had a coffee and cake, all by myself and then pottered round the shops, came home, had a small nap, then read a book. It was just what I needed. I haven’t actually taken any time out for myself, in, well, actually I can’t remember. Now I need to get on with the last of the Christmas preparations and wrapping.
