I've made a pact to myself that I have to make more of an effort to have 'dates' with my friends. I think it's very important to maintain friendships as friends are crucial for support, love, happiness, laughter and they can give you a good telling off if you need it.
I've been thinking of the best ways to enjoy this Mums Me Time that I desperately crave. Here's what i've come up with so far:
- Afternoon tea
- Spa Day
- Cocktail making class
- Go Karting
- Pamper Day
- Evening Drinks
- A night on the town
I was recently invited for a cinema date with some of my South Wales blogging friends at The Odeon in The Red Dragon Centre Cardiff Bay. I jumped at the chance to go as going to the cinema used to be one of my favourite things to do.
There was myself, Cathryn from Cardiff Mummy Says, Alina from We Made This Life and Emily from Twin Mummy and Daddy We watched Bad Moms. It was the perfect film for some mums me time.
We met at Costa (which is inside the cinema) for a coffee and chitchat before the film started. As you can imagine we talked for Britain and put the world to right. We then headed into the film. The film is absolutely hilarious and each one of us could relate to it more than we thought we would. It emphasised my point of needing a good friendship group and having your own time.
A cinema date was a lovely way of getting some me time. We were able to talk, laugh and relax. I didn't realise how much I missed going to the cinema. Before we had children hubby and I had one of those cards at a different cinema chain where you pay monthly and you can see as many films as you like. Odeon now has the same thing which is called Limitless. I think I should get one of these as it would make me have more date nights with my husband and with my friends.
Have you seen Bad moms? What films would you recommend seeing? Do you have any other ideas to add to my Mums Me Time list?
Keep your eyes peeled on my blog to find out where we go next.
