I did the Unthinkable…

So the other day, I did the unthinkable. I took a break from Motherhood. It was only for about couple of hours but it completely rejuvenated me.

Last Saturday me and my sister decided it was high time we went to the Salon for a well needed pampering session. I justified my trip by looking down at my shabby dark brown locks and by calculating that the last time I went was about eight months ago!

Before I left Daddy in charge, I told him to call me if anything happened. I followed that with “…Actually, please don’t call me!!” I could ask for a couple of baby free hours, couldn’t I?

At the Salon, I first had a lovely Moroccan Bath, followed by a cream bath for my hair, a hair trim, blow dry and of course the mandatory pedicure. I felt like a new woman. Woman. Ah yes, that’s what I had been before I became a Mother.

As I was waiting for my sister’s treatment to end, I opened my purse to have a peek at my phone. No Missed Calls. Phew…. But I hope everything was OK. I wonder if Baby Z had woken up from his nap yet? Did Hubby give him the water like I asked him to?

I absolutely LOVED being pampered and feeling all brand new with a spring in my perfectly pedicured step. However, as soon as I got home I absolutely LOVED seeing Baby Z’s broad smile a lot more!!

When was the last time you had a mini pampering session? Don’t leave it as long as I did!

    Sounds like you had a well needed pamper, I remember leaving my little one for the first time in Daddy’s care while I went out for a coffee with my Mum and Sister, I was on edge a lot, but didn’t need to worry as they were both fine 🙂

      Yeah it’s absolutely nerve racking even though I know my husband is completely capable of looking after Baby Z!

    It’s so lovely to just be you instead of mummy for a while isn’t it. I need my eyebrows done and keep putting to off, after reading this I’m going to book it in for Saturday 🙂 xx

      Aw I’m glad this post spurred you on for a little TLC! Being a mum is hard work, and we definitely need to be treated once in a while!

    So glad you did this – it is so important to have some me time. We’ll always spend the time worrying that everything is ok but it always is! I haven’t had a pamper for a long time and I desperately need to get my hair cut! It’s more about time and money for me but I know I should take the time on me more, even if it’s painting my own nails! Thanks so much for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

      Thank you! Yeah you’re right, we always worry! I hope you can take some time out to pamper yourself too some time soon! I’m sure you deserve a little time out! ?
