Do’s and don’ts...

Do’s and don'ts...for Easter



DO -

  • Take time to chill
  • Rest
  • Play with a cuddle the kids
  • Make love to you partner
  • Eat outside and drink good coffee
  • Take pleasure in the change of seasons
  • Enjoy a four day break
  • Empty the kids school bags 
  • Read books
  • Have long showers
  • Eat fish on Friday
  • Have a glass of vino, if you want to
  • Catch up with friends - even if its just by 'phone
  • De-clutter a little, but then again, no worries if you don't find time
  • Go for long walks
  • Breath deeply
  • Spend time with your Mother...

DON'T -
  • Stress about your mother
  • Forget to enjoy the fresh air
  • Worry about your exercise routine
  • Stress about the kids bedrooms that are full of crap
  • Feel guilty about your friends - they understand
  • Get hung up if you sink a whole bottle of wine
  • Fret about religion
  • Niggle about saving water
  • Forget to introduce your mother to the books you love
  • Have a meltdown over lost school hats
  • Stress about your work to-do list
  • Worry about the autumn plantings that will possibly wither - there's always next weekend...
  • Rush so much you forget to just enjoy waking up and smelling the coffee for once...
  • Criticise the bits of your body you still don't like - he doesn't care - he loves you anyway.
  • Forget that often the very best parts of your kids day is when you sit down with them for a smooch and a cuddle and a chat about not much at all. They love that. Don't put those moments off in favour of chores.
  • Cram so much in that it feels like you need another holiday
  • Eat too much chocolate.
Have a wonderful Easter everyone...
