Theta Mom Thursday!

Alright Theta Mom's! It's that time of week again! And I'm sorry to say this week I'm kind of cheating. But you know you've got to take what you can get!

Husband's Birthday is next week and I had to run an errand in Covent Garden in preparation for the celebratory day. So I grabbed the chance last night after work since I knew Husband would be home with Son. 5pm I hoped on the tube and headed for Holborn. Lucky for me one of my close friends works in Covent Garden and how could I pass up the opportunity for a coffee and a gossip when I was in the area?

Due to the weather all coffee houses were full so we got a take away and trudged through the rain and down Endall Street as we scoured shops for my prize.

The visit only lasted an hour because I did have to get home to the boys, but the packed tube and the wet frizzy hair were totally worth that 60 minutes of gossip and luke warm coffee. Just to have a little bit of time without boys.

It made me realize I don't need much more than that. I don't need to organize a big outing once a week to get away from my boys, just a quick coffee and a breather do the job nicely. Of course that doesn't go to say I don't want big dinners and such with friends etc. but It's ok if they're few and far between, as long as I get the 1 hour breather.

So I take back what I said first, I didn't cheat.

Thanks again Theta Mom!

Woo Hoo! 60 minutes of gossip AND some warm coffee? Sounds like a time out to me! You're so right, sometimes not planning a time out and just meeting a friend over some chit chat and java is the perfect way to re-energize. Awesome girl! Thanks so much for joining us Theta Mom!

I don't think that is a cheat! I think that is awesome! I LOVE when I get some good girl time without having to be distracted because my son is needing me or my daughter is crying in the middle of every sentence!
