Well, it's a Saturday night and I'm sitting here, on my own. The tv has was turned off hours ago when Tony took the last two kids to bed and I basically couldn't be bothered turning it on again. Trouble is it's been that long since I've actually had an opportunity like this that I'm totally at a loss. Oh there are things I should be doing - Tony's dishes from dinner have been sitting waiting to get washed and I've got knitting I should be getting on with but you know when you just don't want to. It's not even a case of can't be bothered - I'm just enjoying the silence, enjoying the peace and quiet that this house lacks having four very active children running about it.

It's not often that I get an opportunity like this - to just sit by myself and not have someone in my ear about this that or the other. I've been so busy lately with job interviews or the kids during the day and my new found love of exercising at night when they go to bed that I feel like I've hardly managed to sit down let alone relax. But tonight I'm having a night off. Tonight is for me - my new MP3 player is in my pocket with my favourite meditation cd on it but even that feels like it will interrupt.

So I'm just going to sit here, reading through a few of my favourite blogs for a while until either Tony or one of the wee ones wake up needing this or that. I give it another 10 minutes at the most..........

Blessings! I stumbled across you blog and what I am reading. We sometimes forget how important it is to take time for ourselves. We wear so many different hats these day....Good to see you are taking time for you! Sometimes Silence is the best...and dishes can wait.

Aww thanks hun - sorry I took so long to spot your comment, like you say sometimes it's easy to forget our "me-time" and I've been caught up at home lately.

Blessings to you too x
