Monday Me #8

Day to Myself
This week I had a WHOLE afternoon to myself...a whole afternoon!!  Who wouldn't love that?

I was meant to be getting my hair done (again) but as my hairdresser appears to have gone AWOL my Other Half agreed we could put the kids in nursery and I could spend the afternoon at home mulching instead.  Which was total bliss as I made sure it was an afternoon full of indulgence...in other words, I did nothing at all!

What I did do was spend the whole afternoon watching Gossip Girl (who doesn't love a bit of over-acted, I love my life/I hate my life American teenage drama?!?) and enjoying a delicious cream tea.


Before picking the kids up from nursery I popped into the supermarket to pick up a few essentials which, naturally included a bottle of cava.


Before ending my relaxing day with a date night at home with my Other Half where we enjoyed a lovely meal and said cava whilst watching some more Lord of the Rings (two down, one to go!)  I'm not going to lie, we had Thai Chicken En Croute and it was spicy spicy spicy!  I don't get on with hot food at all but my Other Half had persuaded me it wouldn't be that bad.  I ate about half before abandoning in favour of a glass of milk and some more cava.

Cinema Trip
On Friday we went to the cinema to watch Batman: Dark Knight Rising.  We were given two different cinema vouchers at Christmas and so far haven't managed to use either so when Batman came out I decided to surprise my Other Half with going to see it. 

I've seen a mix of reviews about it but I thought it was one of the best films I've seen in a long time. Even if I did comment that I thought the sound was too loud. It wasn't my finest cinema moment!

  1. I used to love it when big man was in nursery and I had the day off and could spend some time to myself. Now it is just a distant memory! Although yesterday it was just big man with us and that was kind of strange!

    1. Was that at the Olympics? Hope you had a good time! I find it strange if the kids go to stay with grandparents, I constantly feel like I've forgotten something!

    1. Thank you :) It's my first in a long long time where I haven't been busy doing something. I'd forgotten what it was like to have an afternoon mulching around!

  4. Sounds great especially the cream tea!!
    I'm failing badly at Monday Me :( probably because it's summer holidays; maybe I'll find some time to do things for myself when the new term begins - fingers crossed!

    1. Oh I hope you do, it helps me feel more like 'me' just having 5 or so minutes to myself when I can x
