The tale of the totally indulgent me day.....

Today was the first time in two years since Little V's birth that I have had a day to me. As of this week I will now have one day a week to me. Don't get me wrong I have had a few hours in a day here and there in two years where I have had some down time but very little. But to have a day, where the Big V is working, the kids are in kindy and family day care respectively and I can do what I want, when I want, it's sublime.

I decided that after dropping off the kids this morning I'd go for spot of unadulterated op shopping by myself, uninterrupted by requests of can I have this, can I have that. You get the picture. I thought I'd pop into a new to me spot but even though I was there after opening hours the doors were locked. Thankfully my dear friend who is also my hairdresser sent me a text at the moment telling me to pop over to get my hair cut. I jumped at the chance, because I always have the two kids to tow when I have my hair done as well.
So today I've enjoyed the following:
* A touch up of the do...woohoo.
* Playing the radio loud in the car, and busting out some old John Farnham tunes, without being told by a nearly four year old its too loud.
* Being gifted some hand me downs for Little V from my dear friend.
* Oh and I was also gifted this old silver bangle, something I've always wanted by same dear friend.
Yep that's a 2.15pm reminder to leave the house to pick kids up
* A quick nip into a different op shop on the way home from having my hair done.
* Acquiring some sweet little scores for my stock levels.

It's not been the day I had set out for myself, but I ain't going to complain a bit, it's turned out pretty good wouldn't you say for someone who hasn't had a proper child free day in two years?

Did you do anything special just for you today?
