Last weekend, I was absolutely HANGING to get to this weekend.
Birthday bash? Big par-tay? Night out with girls? Wait, no – night out with Hubbie?
No, no, no, and NO.
I’ve been looking forward to this weekend, all week, because all I’ve really wanted to do was nothing.
Absolutely, positively, NOTHING.
I have embraced Winter in its entirety and officially started hibernating, you may think. And this is part true. In fact, a post about how great Winter is will follow in due course (true story).
But all I wanted this weekend, was to have no plans. Nothing to do. Nothing to rush and be busy about. I’m actually feeling quite anti-social, in that I’ve been looking forward to nothing else but hanging out and spending some quality time with Hubbie and baby girl. The madness of May, with all of its big celebrations and festivities, and just as many stresses and headaches, although all for a good cause, has just left me tired. Just needing me time. Just needing, ME, to do NOTHING.
Just for a little while. I know that in a week or so, or a few if this cold perseveres, I’ll be up and at it again, and partying just as hard as any 21 year old, as hyped up as any kid that’s just eaten a bag full of smarties, and buzzing just as hard as a beekeeper’s pants. I assume they buzz sometimes, you know.
But tonight, was bliss. It was so much nothing, that it really was the perfect remedy for any previous party sores and shenanigans.
I made a herbal tea when I got home from work, and sat with baby girl on my lap, watching Paw Patrol. She leant her head back against me as we sat watching animated dogs on TV. I breathed.
Later we got takeaway – where along with my Pad Thai I snuck in some cheeky Nutella Puffs (basically deep-fried pastry filled with a slab of yours truly), and along with a delicious glass (or two,
or more) of 2014 cab sav, I inhaled. Again.
Later again, baby girl sat on the couch with me after I had taken a hot shower, and now while watching Dora, leant her head on my shoulder. Awww 🙂
A picture perfect night. Just what the doctor ordered. And still, the night ain’t over yet…
