Saving my sanity

It's the weekend and thanks to Jake I have two nights and two days to recharge my batteries.  I'm revelling in the silence of my mum's empty house; choosing whether or not to turn on the tv (and at this very moment choosing 'not'); waking up in bed and luxuriating in the fact that I don't have to get up immediately; deciding for myself when to eat meals; opting to drink my morning tea downstairs instead of having to take it back to bed; meeting up with friends without having to worry about getting home by a certain time - all of those things that I used to take for granted but which now have to run to schedule in a very particular way in our every day life.  You see it isn't the big things that make a difference any more, I don't need exotic holidays, expensive meals out, crowds of friends around, I just need time to myself and space for my head to clear.  Two days will do it and I'm lucky enough to be able to get two days just often enough to keep my sanity intact.

I'm currently enjoying the same 2 day/2 night mini-break but I'm at home and T is under the care of my step-son 200 miles away. Enjoy too!

Wow, 2 days and 2 nights in the peace and quiet of your own home. that's amazing. I really did enjoy my mini break but think it doesn't compare to being at home on my own.
