“What a difference a day makes….lalalalala” *shatters windows with singing* Today I had a day off!!! I know so excited I could pee my pants. Well it wasn’t a full day but these days I’ll take what I can get. LPV went off with his Granny & Granddad for the afternoon so I packed up my HANDBAG and off I trotted into Haarlem, all by my self, on my jack jones, billy No mates but happy about it!!
Now for a wee shortie I walk abnormally fast, it’s not too bad when you have a buggy to push and your walking through the streets at a rate of knots, people think “oh stressed mammy, get out her way”. However as i was without said buggy, I was a little bit self conscious of my Linford Christy walking so whenever I seen a group of people, I look at my watch pretending to be late for something. I don’t know where the fast walking came from, the only thing I can think of is from trying to keep up with expat daddy’s walking in the early days, I had to practically run to keep up with him.
My day was planned a stroll around the shops, bit of coffee or lunch then the gym, it took me a while to get out of baby mode as the first shop I went into was a baby shop, the 2nd shop I went in was a bit of a buy everything shop I was going to pick up some metal egg cups as LPV has taken a shine to throwing my china one’s into the kitchen bin. As I walked I sucked in the fresh air I thought to myself that I was feeling better with each day here so soon I will start to wean down the crazy pills.
I stopped at this little coffee shop, NO it wasn’t one of “those” coffee shops, I walked in and it was empty, sat down by the window, ordered a coffee & a slice of *Terry & Sue* and just read my book. There was time in my life that I would have looked at someone like and thought “saddo” I guess that was the immature girl in me, today I enjoyed just being alone, not having to talk to anyone or anything. I could have stayed there all afternoon but I got so relaxed at one point it was move or your fall asleep. So now I have the hard decision to make of snooze in a quiet house or go to the gym
What would you do?????
