Where do the weeks go?
These coming three days of the week are my danger times. My husband is away fourteen and a half hours of the day. So I have to cook for just me and I have always felt it wasn't worth cooking for just me...
but since I found the quote I have shared here about self love it has made a big difference to me. I am taking baby steps in self love but getting there. I was brought up by a mother who felt it was vanity to take care of your self. So taking care of my skin and all that enfolds (rather more than it should at the mo!!)has not been on my agenda. Over the years I have received some beautiful gifts of body lotions, cleansing milks and suchlike. I have not used them, each time I tried I could here my mother's voice talking about vanity.
So I have had pretty bottles, jars, and tubes of some lovely, delicious smelling potions in baskets either in my bedroom or in the bathroom. But have been unable to use them:(
That was until this past weekend:) I have been decluttering (another topic another time) and was about to throw most of these bottles, jars and tubs away. I opened one of the jars and and spread a little of the body butter on my arm and it smelt gorgeous. Somthing slipped , yes slipped, not click, slipped in me and I went and had a shower and then slatherd my body with the body butter and I felt wonderful. My husband liked it too;) So guess what, I have started using it daily and I am loving it. A friend at work comments on the gorgeous smell as I walked past her, I sadi " Yes, it's me and it it is what you bought me for Christmas two years ago!!" She was gobsmacked.
