If I'm slightly giddy with excitement this morning I'm afraid you will have to forgive me. The reason is simpless- for the first time since before half term - 5 weeks ago - I get to have the house to myself. The boys will be in school and immobile DH is starting back at work with his crutches and ice packs at the ready. Once I've done the necessary drop offs and grocery shopping I have a whole 5 hours to myself.
Let joy be unconfined.
Now in the true style of an introvert I plan to spend the time by myself, alone. I might read a little, I might go for a walk but mostly I plan to just sit and knit. Time alone is how I recharge my batteries, deal with problems and cope with whatever life throws at me. Having absolutely no time to myself over the last few weeks has been one of the hardest things about DH's surgery when the only time I've had to myself is when I'm driving- and that doesn't really count.
So I'm out of bed at the crack of dawn this morning. Hustling everyone to get ready for school and work - the sooner I get them despatched the sooner the 'me time' can commence.
What's your favourite way to relax and recuperate? Are you a classic introvert like me or do you seek the company and stimulation of other people?
