DD and I had a lovely day yesterday, I made a picnic lunch and used the picnic basket DD gave me a few years ago. It looked very pretentious but in fact was just an easy way to ensure there was enough cutlery and crockery for us.
We went to a workshop aimed at increasing our spiritual awareness. I sometimes feel that all the rushing about I do leave very little time for me, especially the inner me.
It can't be helped it is just how life is at the moment, and I always happy to help with the family and grandchildren.
I just felt that a day of me time was needed, I could have booked a spa day, but round here they are incredibly expensive and as I don't like people touching me, any treatments would be wasted.
The two people running the day were both people that my DD had nannied for in the past but as I'd booked the day in my name they were surprised to see her. There was a lot of catching up to do, DD keeps in contact with all her charges, but not usually with the parents.
As we were the first to arrive we helped in the kitchen, making drinks and setting out the breakfasts. When we broke for lunch we shared our lunch with some of the other people because, as usual, I had over catered!
The day was very interesting but I found the meditation quite difficult as I kept falling asleep.
It must have done me good though I got home around 6, cooked a meal and by 7 I was asleep on the sofa at 9 my L&M woke me up and sent me to bed. Once in bed I then slept until 6:30 when I made tea, with just one loo break. I went back to bed with a cuppa and slept through until 9:30 this morning.
