What works for one….

All day i’ve been thinking about submerging into a hot bubble bath. Why will this remain just a thought? Let me tell you….😘

For me? I always LOVE the idea of a bubble bath but then I don’t actually find it a relaxing experience.

I run the water, pour in my favourite bubbles, watch it rise and then it’s time to get in.. that’s when the magic stops.

I do the “hot water bob” as I like to call it, of trying to get my backside used to the water so I bob up and down a bit πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ˜‚

Right, i’m in…let the sensation take over my body…oh no wait….i’m getting a creak in my neck….oh god what is that?…oh it’s just my stomach floating above the bubbles…..great πŸ˜’

Oh, and now my boobs are joining in by pretending they are buoys floating in the sea. It’s the one time they are perky πŸ‘πŸ˜‚

Oh God I hate a bath.

Staring at my body magnified…maybe if I lift a knee out and try to be all sexy. Oh. No. Wait. Now I can see the fine hairs on my thigh that I haven’t shaved..and I can see my full nakedness reflecting back at me in the taps.

Ok Eileen, just reeelllaaxxx, lie back. Imagine you are in the see with the waves lapping up over you….such a realistic sound, nope it’s just the bath water slapping against my stomach, making the same noise my thighs do when they clap together πŸ‘πŸ‘

There WAS actually one time where I thought, ok. I’m really sore. I’m going to have a bath and make sure I relax. I’ll just put some hair removing cream on first (everywhere I might add)

Brilliant, kill two birds and all that….

Nope. I’m now sitting in the bath surrounded by my own body hair, just floating on the surface in a scum but continue to sit in it for at least 10 mins so as not to waste the water. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜­

Why? Why is having a bath so stressful?

My Mum loves having a bath! I don’t understand it.

I had a water birth, which I was pressured into by the midwives so I got in just to shut them up, but it was actually bliss. Even though I was stark naked, boobs afloating, stretch marks from head to toe, it was wonderful. It was the one time I enjoyed being in the water without caring…like a sumo-wrestler Lilo. Just lying there whilst the midwife discreetly scooped out little bits of πŸ’©. I didn’t have a care in the world 😍

Tonight, after finishing a nightshift and being awake for 36 hours, I will be relaxing by sprawling on the couch, full of the chinese I ordered because I didn’t have the energy to cook, watching some trashy T.V before going upstairs and collapsing into bed in only my pants because putting pj’s on is too much effort.

That my friends, is relaxing BusysingleMum style and i’m ok with that. πŸ˜‚

I envy those of you who like a bath, ipad and wine in hand. Enjoy it. Relax.

We are all blimmin’ exhausted and deserve the best relaxation we can get. I’m just gutted that what works for you, makes me feel like a beached dolphin flapping around on the sand. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Much love xx

From a keen to bathe, completely exhausted Mum. ❀
