…………And Relax

It has to be said, but I rarely seem to get any spare time.

If I am not working, running the house or even just trying to crowbar the kids into bed there is always something nagging at me that needs to be done……… so my question to you is “How do you relax?”

I have to admit that I enjoy blogging and I enjoy keeping an online diary of what we have been doing.  It is fantastic to look back through and when the kids throw the line at you of “we never do ANYTHING”, you can actually go back and prove that they are in fact lucky devils and we have done lots of fun stuff!

Now blogging can get stressful, especially if you have set yourself a deadline so I cannot really count that as relaxing.

I do love a good TV series and am currently hooked on Revenge, The Following and Revolution.  It is the one time I put my feet up, put my phone on silent and enjoy the show…….that’s how I relax.

Hubby on the other hand likes gaming.  He struggles to wrestle the XBox from the tightened grip of the kids, so has found other games he enjoys on the iPad or even his phone.

So what else is out there?

I know my MIL loves nothing more than a game of Bingo and I admit to joining her a few times and having a great time, even if we don’t win the girlie chitchat and competitive edge of the evening has us giggling like kids!

I am also looking forward to my first trip to the cinema with a friend.  I am ashamed to admit that I have not been to the cinema since the final Harry Potter film came out as it is now horrendously expensive and having teenage kids means they want to come too!

Any ideas on how to relax are most welcome, I don’t suppose I will get much time once the new baby arrives!!
