Now I am not complaning about this - I wouldn't swap my life for anything right now, but I am wondering whether it is time to start focusing a little more on me as well.
|I looked a lot less tired pre-baby|
I used to run. Not that far or that fast, but I loved the freedom, the space, the fresh air and the energy it gave me. Running was my time to reflect and I do all my best thinking on foot. I got out of the habit through pregnancy and have been too lazy to get back into it, but this mummy tummy is not going to shift itself and with the seafront only a couple of minutes jog away, I have the perfect reason to start up again.

I used to be creative, but now my projects are all half finished (or not even started). I want to make an effort to finish one thing every month, even if it is only little and get back to my sewing machine again as it is long neglected.
Before having children, the bloke and I used to eat out regularly, watch lots of films and spend whole nights just chatting. Now we are more often than not found on our seperate computers, blogging or playing zombie games. I want to introduce a date night every now and again where we make sure we find a babysitter and go and enjoy each other's company. One day the children will leave home and I still want a best friend to share my life with.
I am not sure how easy it will be to break the habits, and my little nest in our sofa is rather comfortable but I really feel it is time to get a better balance of mummy and me.
Do you still enjoy the same things you did pre-baby?
