Well what can I say…….it’s Friday night and I have no children my daughters are away for the weekend visiting their father and this frazzled mother gets to chill out and recharge her batteries for the week ahead.
I love my daughters more than life itself and would do absolutely anything for them to be happy but also I need to be me, I need to feel like a human being, a person, a woman in her own right not just ‘a mother’ a cleaner or a servant. I need to be Kimberly the woman the best person I can be so in turn I can be the best mother I can possibly be.
So tonight will be spent eating Chinese takeout without sharing yes all to myself woohoo, in my favourite pjs cosying up on the couch with a warm blanket (it’s cold in Scotland) with my best friend my whippet (lady) a glass of baileys in hand going through my notes for uni on Stalin and the Dali lama all while being in a little bubble of my own peace and quiet.
How do you spend your free time without your children?
