If I could have ONE whole day to myself, I would...

Im all about link-ups this week apparently but these two have caught my eye and I couldnt pass by.

The Britmums Blogging Prompt this week is 'If I could have ONE whole day to myself I would......

I had a quick think about this and very sadly, I actually thought I dont think I would want a Whole day to myself, a break is always good, but I always find after a few hours I just dont know what to do with myself.  Im too used to being with the kids or my husband, I dont know how to occupy myself for a long period of time.  Is that a bit sad or abnormal?  So maybe rather than a whole day, I would take an evening or an afternoon and do something like go to a Spa and have a treatment or two or if I had the chance I would love to do a day's photography class.  Otherwise as much as I love my own company and having some space, Im now just too used to being around others, if Im not around others Im working!  Oh well, when the time comes that I do actually get periods of time to myself (when the kids are older) Im sure I will fill my time with other things.


  1. Bless you! A whole day is daunting! And I think mummies in particular find it hard to sacrifice "family time" for themselves. I hope you are able to find an afternoon or evening for yourself some time though! Thanks so much for taking part in the BritMums Blogging Prompt! ;)

  2. It is a bit scary isn't it... what a whole day to actually be me - without attachments! Saying that however there is nothing better and more rejuvenating than time off to do something for me! I might have to try this prompt for myself... it's making me think! xx

  3. Thank you for your comments, it is difficult a) to find the time for myself and b) not to feel that Im losing 'family time'. Must try harder to make 'me' time!

  4. I know what you mean. As much as I enjoy thinking about the million and one things I'd love to do if I wasn't running around after my son, the truth is that I wouldnt' change it for the world. It would be nice to have him in the same room but with someone else responsible for chasing him so that I can enjoy his company without exhausting myself. ;)
