Simple Things in Life

Isn't it amazing how becoming a mum gives you a whole new appreciation for the simple things in life?

This week it was the simple act of showering - Miss C was at preschool, Miss J sound asleep and hubby at work. I didn't have to rush, I didn't have an audience and I could spend as long as I liked in there with no one complaining and without having my make up smeared over a toddler's face! 

It was made even more blissful by my new Vanilla Tree Grapefruit shampoo I have been dying to use for weeks, but tortured myself by having to use the last of my old one first (and of course it lasts forever when you want it gone!)... it was worth the wait, it smelt divine - and now so did I.

Years ago I never would have thought a 5 minute shower was enough to make you feel like a million $$ again - on second thoughts, I guess that depended on the size of the hangover I had. But now instead of wanting to top the shower off with McDonald's and a crawl back to bed, it makes me ready to tackle the day again - at least until I turn the water off!

  1. You're so right!!!! A shower in peace and quiet with no where to go, and no one to please (for a little while!).

    The new shampoo sounds yummy, glad it added to the experience!


Nothing better than a nice comment to bring a smile to my face :) Thank you!
