This morning dh got up with the kids at around 7 and I lay in bed till after 9 reading my kindle... I put the radio on so I couldn't hear breakfast going on downstairs... It was heaven... Loved every second!!
Mummy to DD Squirrel Monkey (9), DD Howler Monkey (8), DS Curious George (7), DS Silverback (not quite 1)
Really jealous that sounds great.... So lovely & restful....
I'm looking forward to another facial.... Had my first last month never done anything like it before... Wow it was so good to be pampered.... Mean't I had such a great nights sleep.... Think it was coz it relaxed me so.... Deffo gonna be a regular thing in 2014....
My children are older now 12, 9 and 8 so getting them out of bed in the mornings has become harder! So this morning I woke them, provided breakfast and left them in beds while I showered, had coffee, sorted washing etc! Peace and quiet. And Disney Infinity has been a fantastic investment!!
Mum to three easy to place babies! DS, Bigly (13), DS, Middly (10) and DD, Littly (8) with a range of diagnoses!
Booked myself onto the dress making class I have been hankering after for a couple of years (start on tuesday) and bought myself some lovely roses (sideboard looks empty now all that christmas tat has been put away)
Forgot to say all dress making will be about me, until I have a whole new wardrobe no one else will be getting a look in, also half way through knitting the very first thing I have ever made for myself - been knitting for 35 years and have never made myself anything. I will be getting right into the spirit of this thread
Mum to 2 BC (35 & 33), 2 AC (18 & 20),Grandma to 2 GC (8 & 11)
WoW.... Went for my third facial..... Feel so chilled & relaxed.... Can't wait to see if I get the brill nights sleep I got the other twice I have been.... Will report back tomorrow.... Feel like a new woman it's brill.....

Proud single adoptive mummeee to brothers baa & skweek 14 & 13 .....
Gave away a build your own gingerbread village kit to a friend's family who had an inset day. Went to see it after work, and it was brilliant, a proper layout with added signposts and a double decker bus to take people to Santa's Grotto.
Mum to AS (18) at home and AD (19) staying put in foster care.

I went to a Japanese evening tonight organised by a friend of mine who used to live there. We made sushi and learned how to write our names in Japanese - really good fun and lovely to get into a different head space.
Mum of AS (17), AS (15) and BS ( 7). 12 years and counting...
GSH you will appreciate this - finally replaced my 30 year old saucepans with a brand set of very expensive pans, were in a sale but will need to last 30 years as Welles. Used them tonight , they're fab

Out to see Long Walk To Freedom then Indian meal followed by night in friend's mother's flat that overlooks the mouth of the Tyne. I stood on her balcony early this morning waving in the Amsterdam ferry. Bliss!
Mum to AS Big Fish (15) and AS Little Minnow (10) and now a new horse who will let me escape from kids with attitude and the drudgery of disability services!
Treated myself to a new dress today in Tesco's sale reduced from £35 to £15 - Bargain!
Only problem was I hadn't realised it had a magic lining built into it (one of those stretchy lycra ones that pulls you in and smooths your lumpy bits out) quite effective actually, but when I went to take it off, it kind of strangled me round the neck and shoulders trapping my arms, (a bit like when you are taking off a wetsuit).
I almost had to press the help button to get an assistant to come and help me out of it, but thankfully after having a rest and counting down 1,2,3 uuuurrrggghh I did manage to extricate myself from the said garment, whilst laughing away to myself at the absurbity of the situation.
What did I do for myself today? One hour of gym before breakfast - thanks to DH, who looks after the kids twice a week before starting work. Sounds a strange thing to count under this category, but it gives me an energy boost ( much needed, given DS's sleep habits), and sets me up for the day!
