I was asked by my lovely friend and fellow twitter mummy to list my top five “Guilty Pleasures”. Well let’s face it as a mum’s we always put everyone else first and our own little pleasures can wait.
So my top Five Guilty Pleasures would have to be:
One: Social Networking, I love spending time on Twitter and Facebook chatting away to like-minded Friends, Mummy’s and Bloggers. I tend to be on in the day in between looking after little Monster, Working and Blogging. I just love the fact that I have yet to meet these lovely people but it feels like we have been friends forever.
Two: Chocolate, I have a secret little box hidden I the back of the camping cupboard and in it I store my favourite bar of chocolate. Not that I’m being mean but sometimes we just have to have something for ourselves. Even Daddy Mission doesn’t know where it’s kept, it’s all mine.
Three: Blogging, this has to be one of my favourite guilty pleasures. With four kids running around I don’t get much time to do it every day, but when I do get the chance I wander off into my own little world and forget the world is still going on around me.
Four: My Books, at the moment I am writing two books. One is going to be called a Job for Mummy: it’s about the struggles we all face as mum’s to find the perfect career that will fit in around our family life. The other is called “The Dream” this is one of my favourites and its a book of honestly, hopefully if it makes it to the publishers it will make you laugh, cry and want to move to the country. I do try to spend some time each day on at least one of them, normally at about 6am in the morning when Daddy Mission has left for work and the kids are still asleep.
Five: Mummy Time, This is when I try to spend just 10 minutes in silence doing what I want to do. That sounds so selfish but with children you forget what me time actually is. Before the kids I would think of nothing going in the bath for three hours or painting my nails. So I vowed to make just a little bit of time for me to relax and enjoy.
So now is the time to pass the baton on, lets see what my other mummy blogger friends define as their Mummy Guilty Pleasures
