Me Days

When I started working more than 10 years ago, days off from work were precious and I saved them carefully so that I could take short holidays or one long break each year. Sometimes, I take one or two precious days off to meet up with some friends. But that's about it.

Since I started working again (by the way, I've just passed my one year mark recently!), I have found that taking a day off now and then to do things I like, for myself and by myself is important for my sanity.

I call those days "Me Days"

Today is one of those days, except I only took the afternoon off instead of 1 full day. After 1pm, I went for lunch by myself, went for a bit of shopping.. then to the gym.. and then went home to watch some TV. Then I took my own time to make dinner.

By the time The Husband came home, I felt as if I have been resting all day!

What a lovely day today has been!

It's also nice to see my balcony in the afternoon, with all those portulacas smiling at me

OKC, i do that too! I will just take a day off and rest! It's actually rejuvenate myself!

I agree it's nice to have some time off for ourselves. For me, with the kids around, it's hard to get 'me' time.

"Me time" is precious, isn't it, Ting?

"Girls' time" too! I think we are overdue for our high-tea gatherings.. :)
