Mondays are all about finding new ways to pamper... What's pampering? That's looking after Number One, doing something nice for yourself, recharging your batteries 🙂 It's a major part - nay, keystone - of the Flylady programme. If you're nice to yourself, then you're better equipped to look after your home and your family. It's been… Continue reading Pamper Monday – Top Gear
Pamper Monday has come around again. Where does the time go?? I've had a nice winter week's holiday at home with the kids. Took a lot of gentle coaxing to get them out of bed this morning... Back into their ski suits, hats and gloves, out into below freezing temperatures and (yes, more) snow and in to… Continue reading Pamper Monday – A Musical Interlude
While I was queuing at the chemist the other day, I had a rummage in one of those dangerous little baskets where they have 'end of the range' bargains. There was a dinky little set of three nailvarnish pots...a French manicure set. Spurred on by my recent Scaredy Cat Challenge success of submitting my feet… Continue reading Pamper Monday – Oh la la!
I wrote a post in November about my favourite smells, My five cents on my five scents. But there's a stranger in town and I've fallen in love! 😉 Summer Hill by Crabtree and EvelynIt's a really light fragrance that just makes me feel all happy and warm and snuggly and optimistic and clean and fresh and lovable :)… Continue reading Pamper Monday – I’m in love!
Thanks to the Flylady, I'm constantly finding new ways to pamper myself, besides the obvious (though nonetheless extremely enjoyable) long bubble baths, reading a chapter of a book every night before bed, lighting a candle at breakfast etc, etc. There are some blogs I always make a beeline for - especially when I'm needing a little… Continue reading Pamper Monday – I’m in stitches…again!
Even though the Flylady habit for January is shining your sink, it's so important to keep working on the pamper habit. I don't know about you, but my batteries seem to run out of power very quickly at this particular time of year. The rush I get from Christmas is over and spring isn't quite making… Continue reading Mmmmmmm Monday
I've started a 'Scaredy Cat Challenge' for myself - following the advice of Jonathan Roche (see my previous post I'm in Stitches!). He talked about it in connection with exercising, but it can be applied to anything really. So for the duration of 2010, I'm going to do things I've been putting off. I'm not procrastinating about tasks in the… Continue reading Scaredy Cat Challenge – 24 January 2010
I did my first run of the year this morning. Temperature was -1c (31f). Don't know what the windchill was but I can tell you that I did try and keep my mouth closed as much as possible, to stop the back of my throat burning! 😉 I usually run with friends. Twice a week… Continue reading Baby it’s cold outside
Monday is the day I do my 15 minute pamper show Café Copenhagen on BlogTalkRadio. Until last week that is, when our main computer crashed (after 10 months, don't know the reason, is there ever a reason with computers??!), synchronised with the death of an old laptop. At the moment we're using a borrowed laptop, so the show… Continue reading Café Copenhagen
Monday is the day I do my radio show on BlogTalkRadio. Why don't you listen in? We're going to be pampering for 15 minutes. Did you know that pampering is the Flylady habit for this month? What's that? You don't have 15 minutes per day to recharge your batteries??? Well that's just fine, because today I'll… Continue reading Café Copenhagen (pamper time) – 14 December 2009
The Flylady habit for this month is...pampering - hooray! 🙂 This has been one of the most difficult Flylady habits for me to embrace... How on earth could taking time for myself possibly help the state of the house? But, yet again, she is right. Just 15 minutes (or even just making a nice cup of… Continue reading Café Copenhagen – 7 December 2009
The kitchen remodel is finished (yeehaw), so I'm flying on to other things... Today I restart my BlogTalkRadio show and I'm looking forward to getting back into the studio - though also a little nervous. But as the Flylady says, you can do anything for 15 minutes, and that's precisely how long my show is ;)… Continue reading Café Copenhagen – 30 November 2009
