As you can see from the photos above I had some very rare, but very welcome Me Time. With seven children the closest I get to relaxation ideas, is to quietly sneak upstairs, whilst the children are quiet and occupied and send Asa a text message from upstairs to say “I’ve gone to have a bath”…
So when I was actually asked to think about how I would spend some time for just myself, my first thoughts were chocolate and a bubbly bath, so those were the first two on my list!
Next I realised that my make-up bag hasn’t actually had anything new added to it since my eldest daughter was born (she is nearly 16!) I am sure that cannot be healthy, but as I very rarely wear any, it never crosses my mind.
We had a little outing on a very wet and windy morning, to Boots.
It is a lovely old building and has a very helpful automatic door, instead of having to struggle with the pushchairs!
Who knew just choosing a bubble bath would be so difficult!
And this is what I chose
I know, not very exotic, but I LOVE chocolate orange and this muscle soak bubble bath smells lovely!
Next stop the make up aisles, of which there were plenty…
You would think with a sister who owns her own Hairdressing and Beauty Salon I would know exactly what to pick, but if i’m honest i really didn’t have a clue!!
I went for easy to put on, natural colours, here are my purchases…
As you can see they are very neutral, and nothing way out there!
When I arrived at the salon, I had an extra special treat, a wash, cut and blowdry too.
With seven children to get ready in the morning I really do not have the time to spend on myself, so I wanted a quick and easy make up routine, IF I needed it!
So, there we go, the afternoon that Hex Mum actually had some time to herself, well I will let you into a little secret, Tyrus and Viggo came to the shops with Asa and I, and they both sat in the Salon with Nanny and Grandad whilst I had my hair and make up done, but it was still very relaxing!!
And then it was home for a very hot, bubbly bath, but there won’t be any photos of that thank you very much…
