I've already used the thing that probably is my first port of call for comfort- a cup of tea and a good book. But I absoutely love a bubble bath. I still feel guilty if I have a bubble bath in the middle of the day- as if I should be doing housework. But it's really the only time I get a bit of peace. If I go to the bathroom Emma will dash out of her bedroom and stand outside with a running commentary or important questions that need answering. She does this if anyone phones me aswell. I tried to get an impressive photo of bubbles- but have had to go with a frame to make it stand out!
These are all the things that add to the comfort. It's the cream colour way in the bathroom this week- so my favourite shea butter and magnolia toiletries are out. I also love cosy mysteries like Agatha Raisin and she's my book of the day. I finished Me to You yesterday and loved every page of it. I also had to visit a couple of shops today to get Emma's Take a Break. She's started reading magazines avidly- and although I'd stopped buying mags cos I think they are expensive , it's nice to see Emma so engrossed in something. We tried to get it before school at our little Tescos- but the delivery van was there at the same time and I don't think they'd been unloaded.
The other photo I'd love to capture today- is Holly sunbathing in the kitchen doorway. She loves the spring sun- and if I can possibly bear it I love to leave the door open for her to bask in the sun. The only problem with trying to get a photo of her enjoying the sun- is that she thinks I want to play ball and sprints out into the garden!
