If you could ask for one thing, just one thing, on mother’s day and get it, what would it be?
I am trying to decide between a pile of cash and five hours alone to spend it in Penney’s. Or taking that pile of cash and buying a year’s membership for our family of 6 in the leisure centre.
Would you fancy having the house all to yourself? Or even going out for a few drinks and getting to stay in bed until dinnertime the next day. Then watching TV for the rest of it.
What about a massive make-up hamper full of quality products and not your usual recession friendly dupes? Maybe being taken out for a nice meal where all you have to do is cut up your own meat, pour your own drink/s, (alcoholic) and look after your own self in the bathroom as your other half looks after the kids so you can eat and then digest your meal without leaving your seat eleventeen times.
Would a half day at a beauty spa float your boat? How about a simple flower arrangement, some chocolates and that book you’ve been waiting for to come on general release?
Maybe it’s a lie-on you’re after. Even for an hour. To take a shower or a bath without company. To read the papers, uninterrupted, with a cup of coffee.
If I am asked, and I say if because my boys are still quite young, but if I am asked what I would like, this is what I will ask for: a big hug from each of them.
And then maybe the house to myself for the rest of the day.
I would kill for the house to myself! It hasn't happened since I've had children. I'd say I'd go delirious though, I wouldn't know what to do!ReplyDelete
The first time that happened to me I spent the time doing exactly that: wondering what would I do with myself. Last weekend I spent that hour sweeping and washing the floors!!Delete
If I have the house to myself for more than a few hours I miss them... how CRAZY is that?? I am most looking forward to the cards they have made me in school.... the youngest has already offered to swap me the card (which is a secret Mum!) for my phone and my older boy smuggled something out of his school bag yesterday and called his sister after him to show her what it was ;) Of course a day of not washing dishes would be the icing on the cake ;)ReplyDelete
Yes, the homemade cards are THE best! I got a packet of buttons sellotaped to mine today! The cute. And the shyness when he was giving it to me. My heart!Delete
All sound so amazing I'm not sure if I could choose...I imagine a lie in will be the present I receive, I hope anyway!ReplyDelete
A lie-in, just a lie-in, preceded by a full night if sleep, that's all I want. Oh and the bag of make-up!ReplyDelete
Money to spend in Penney's ALONE by MYSELF. And the toilet thing too, that'd be great! Great post!ReplyDelete
