So today I am out. Out out. With friends and no children in tow. We are heading to Bath on the train for some shopping and just a general girlie day out. I haven't had one of these in so long and I am so excited! I have been rather excited since we planned this little outing a few weeks ago. And the fact it is with my best friend Sam and my Sister in law makes it that much more exciting.
I'm looking forward to getting a little dressed up and to chose which handbag to take. I expect I will literally have my phone, purse and a hairbrush in my handbag but it will be just my stuff!
One of my aims is to grab a few bargains from Primark for our up coming South Africa trip. We will also have a couple of coffee stops I am sure, where I can drink my coffee in peace without having to help one of the boys drink a babychino or tidy up the mess they are making with a muffin. We will have lunch where I can enjoy my own lunch without having to share it. We may even push the boat out and have a glass of wine, or be real rebels and have a cocktail!
I love my boys. And I love spending time with them. Which to be honest is nearly everyday as I don't get much time off. I go out but when they are in bed so I would normal be without them. As a mummy you don't get 'time off'.
Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining about being a mummy but every now and again its nice to have some me time. Where I am Kirsty and not just Mummy. I will be able to go into a normal sized changing room and try clothes on at my leisure. I will be able to chat without being interrupted by one of the boys. And I am sure by the end of the afternoon I will be pining to come back to the boys and I'm sure my husband will be pining for my return too lol!
