I blame the book. My little daily meditation book said, "do something fun today".
"If you're relaxing, let yourself relax, without guilt, without worrying about the work that is undone..... Today I will do something fun, something I enjoy, something just for me. I will take responsibility for making myself feel good."
Can't argue with 'the book', even if it was a Monday and a work day and my inbox was full.
I took myself off to the movies, watched the world go by in a coffee shop, while eating a big slab of carrot cake, hung out in a book shop and bought this little set of 'City Walks With Kids In Paris'. I am living 'as if'...... as if I WILL be doing those city walks with my boys, sooner than later! Somehow. So that little box, plonked on my desk, is my sort of my vision board.
I must admit I spent the afternoon/evening actioning my inbox... so much so that the kids stayed in the pool until dark and they were all wrinkled..... but I fell into bed happy..... and so did they!
It's so good to do something really nice for yourself.
