Yesterday my husband went off on a sailing trip to Croatia. He’ll be gone for a week. A blessed, chillaxing, no heavy cooking, no sock-hunting week! As I waved him off in the early hours, I felt almost as if a dead weight had been lifted from my chronically aching shoulders. I felt lighter. I felt possibility. I felt almost single!
Skipping off to get dressed, I thought about what I would do first. Turn up the radio at full blast for once? Change the bedsheets that I would be slumbering in all by myself later? Cook myself a healthy, meat-free breakfast? In the end I did none of those things. Instead I had a little nap. Well, it was still only 7am! On a Saturday!
Then I did a lot of aimless pottering, internet surfing, and catching up with friends, for the rest of the day. Brilliant!
Do I feel guilty about this unusual feeling of skippy skippiness? No – not yet! 😀
Although I DO still have the two children here, so I am not ‘Home Alone‘ alone, just adult alone!
This week I am aiming to get a LOT of writing done, a lesser amount of exercise, and a tiny wee smidge of housework. Cooking? Phffffft! That’s what takeaways are for!
We’ll see how THAT pans out…
By the way… this Friday… my place… MalibuVodkaParty!!!
Girls ONLY – unless you happen to be Michael Fassbender! 😉
Have a good week, blog peeps!
