It’s half term! Hooray!
I love having the kids at home and not having to get up and out in the mornings. Now they are a bit older they are often happy to potter about the house, especially at the beginning of the day.
So this morning I look advantage of this and I took some time out for myself. I made ‘Clean & Lean Pancakes’, a cup of green tea and sat in my sunny kitchen and read my book. Eating breakfast slowly, in peace, and dare I say it, by myself(!!) was the perfect way to start the day.
Don’t get me wrong, I love big family breakfasts full of chat but it made a nice change. Peace and relaxation are not words I would use to describe my usual life. The majority of us mums are on the ‘busy, working, sorting life out roller coaster’ which we can’t get off.
This morning however, I stepped off and REALLY enjoyed my 15 minutes of tranquillity. Perfect!
