One Hour To Myself

One hour to myself

Hubby has popped out for an hour. The children are all in bed at a decent time for the first time this Easter holiday and I have one whole hour to myself. I could be cleaning the bathroom. I probably should be doing the workout DVD I bought just after Christmas. Instead I have decided I am going to enjoy this hour by not doing a lot. I am currently finishing the hot chocolate I started to drink in the bath. The bath where no child or man just ‘had’ to pop in for a tissue…. or worse. I have buried myself in the cover and I’m looking at the two cars that my youngest child kindly told me I could play with and left them on my bedroom floor, you know the kind of cars, the metal race cars that are helpfully designed with pointy bits at the top. They shall stay there. I have the remote control to myself and I can watch my trashy T.V with out it being drowned out by ‘does this finish soon’.

I love my husband and children dearly but being able to indulge in doing sweet naff all for one whole hour all by myself is a rare occurrence so the bathroom can stay un-scrubbed for one whole hour, this is my hour.

I am a 28 year old mum living in Kent. I am totally outnumbered living with my husband and 3 boys but I love the fun and adventure they bring to my life. As a family we enjoy being active and to get out and about as much as possible. A little about us Me- My husband and I met 12 years ago when I was 16 and him 19. Being so young I don't think either of us expected a nervous first date at the cinema to lead to marriage and 3 children but we soon became inseparable. It can be hard staying 'girlie' in a house full of boys. DS1- DS1 is very sporty. He enjoys football, rugby and swimming but his real passion is motocross. I think hubby would have happily had him on a motocross bike the second he took his first step but he first started to ride when he got his first 50cc bike at 6 years old. Now, aged 8, he rides with complete confidence on his 65cc and is desperate to start competing. As his mother I will always worry about him no mater what he does but seeing how happy this sport makes him makes me want to support him 100%. DS2- DS2 is a real animal lover. He would love nothing more than to have a house full of cats and dogs but unfortunately for him the only pet we have is our goldfish named 'Goldie'. When we visit family who have dogs DS2 will happily sit there for hours talking, stroking and trying to teach them tricks. Computer games is DS2's favourite pass time. He was gifted a tablet for Christmas last year and now, at 6, he has my husband bugging him on tips to get new levels. To keep active DS2 really enjoys swimming. He is not afraid of the water at all and would swim every day given the chance. He has such a loving, caring personality. DS3- DS3 is, well, a real handful as most 2 year olds are. He is never short of energy and zooms everywhere at a million miles an hour on his favourite balance 'motorbike'. Much to my husbands joy DS3 is also obsessed, yes obsessed with motocross. All he wants to do is play motorbikes, wear DS1's helmet and boots at any given chance and watch the videos of DS1 riding. DS3 learns so much from his older brothers and he surprises me everyday with how daring and forward he is in so many ways.
