It’s all about me and me time Halloween

Carrying on with my quest to carve out more me time this week has gone completely to pot…it’s half term week and that means all of my time is spent with the girls BUT I am loving it.

So this week’s me time post for Mums and Me will be dedicated to our half term week spent together.


In all honesty I didn’t want an action packed week, I wanted them to relax and have fun, to play with toys that have been forgotten since they have started school. I wanted them to chill in front of a good film on the sofa and to enjoy sweets, chocolate and cake; all things that in term time are given out in restricted doses.

As quiet as I wanted to keep it, our weekend started with a Halloween 5th birthday party and a trip to the theatre to see Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom.

We went to the Disney shop yesterday and bought a Merida (Brave) puzzle plus we found a couple of ideas for Christmas presents. We have cooked a sticky toffee apple cake, had our faces painted and been to a Halloween party where we got sticky with paint and glue, decorated cakes and coloured in pictures.

Daddy’s off for the next two days and they don’t know it but we’re

  • going swimming
  • going to see Madagascar 3, which apparently is brilliant
  • and attending another birthday party at the weekend too

As for me Me time well I may have found my wedding dress – I need to nip back to the shop quick before someone else gets it and no I haven’t tried it on as I had the girls with me but I fell in love with it so I hope it looks good and they have my size. This could possibly be next week’s Me time post ;)

You’ll be pleased to know over the past week I found the time to file my nails, sort out my legs and bake a cake but that ruddy cushion hasn’t seen a stitch all week. I pledge to get the darned thing sewn up and stuffed by Christmas – ok?

But most of all, I came out of two blogging forums and I feel so much better for it. I may not know what everyone is saying but I have realised it doesn’t matter, I don’t care and I feel so much better for it.


I have never coped well listening to others back stabbing and being spiteful, being witness to certain discussions was dragging me down. Now what the eye doesn’t see the heart can’t grieve, I’m living in pure ignorance and LOVING it.

    Is it bad that I’m VERY excited to see your Me Time post next week to hear about The Dress?! And go you – time to file your nails and get your legs done, that’s more than I manage most weeks! xx

      The trouble about The Dress is I am so indecisive and it is still so very early but if it is The One I shall certainly be writing about it. Just to let you know I find this Linky particularly inspiring. :)

    Sounds like a lovely half term! And I know what you mean about the forums, I have no idea how people keep up with all of them x

    Sounds like a busy but fun half term, ours seems so long ago now. And we loved Madagascar 3 so funny. x
