Just For One Day

Just for one day

I would like to sleep until I wake up naturally

Just for one day

I would like to make a large coffee and eat my breakfast in bed

Before having a long hot shower

With time to do all the things I used to do pre children

Shampoo my hair twice

Shave my legs

Use a body scrub

Deep condition my hair

Moisturise

It would be so nice to remove leggings without a layer of skin coming off!

Just for one day

I would like to wear nice clothes

With no breastfeeding access

I would like to be able to leave the house

Without lashings of drool

And smears of snot

All over my mum uniform

Just for one day I would like to walk out the door

With just my keys, my coat, my wallet and my phone

I would like to only put on my own shoes

Put just myself in the car

And be on my way

Just for one day

I would like to go for a walk at my pace

I would like to enjoy the sights and sounds of a place I visit

Without being a constant source of endless snacks!

I would like to drink a hot coffee

Read a book without pictures

Eat a meal from my table

Using both hands

Just for one day I would like to not have indigestion

From wolfing down a meal as fast as I can

To a soundtrack of babies and mini humans who need me NOW!

Just for one day

I would like to browse the shops

And spend just a little money on me

Without feeling immensely guilty

I would like to talk to my best friend

In full sentences

And be able to hear her replies

Just for one day

I would like to enjoy periods of absolute silence

I would like some time to think

To reflect on my life

And where it is heading

Just for one day

I would like to be pampered

Have my hair cut

Even coloured

Treat myself to something new

Feel new

Feel like a woman

Rather than just a mum

Just for one day

I would like an evening

An evening with my husband

To wine me and dine me

Woo me

Try to remember why we fell so head over heels

Not so very long ago

Just for one day

I would like some time to remember

Who I once was

Who I am now

Time to figure out who I want to be

Just for one day

One single day

I would like to be me

Just me

Not mummy mummy mummy!

Just me

me march 2018

Just for one day

One single day

A day I would

Absolutely

Most certainly

Undoubtedly

Spend wishing I was with my children
