Some long overdue ‘Time Out’ was taken last week thanks to a family occasion abroad and a very generous energetic babysitting Granny and my Aunt who fulfilled all school-run duties in our absence.
No emails, no social media, no text messages, no to-do lists, no projects, no early mornings … for one whole week.
Lots of amazing food, organic wine, laughs, catching up with family and best of all was the silence on long car journeys … or small car journeys for that matter 🙂
I have to admit when I finished my book on the plane home I took off my glasses, closed my eyes and made a mental list of things I needed to do on return, but this time it felt refreshed and energised with batteries fully charged.
I hope you have a ‘time out’ planned sometime soon if you haven’t already taken one this year … sometimes a long walk and a lunch out can be enough to switch off and recharge. Back to reality today with to-do lists a plenty and not a minute spare from Monday to Friday … but I am not complaining. Have a great week 🙂
ciao for now,
