No this isn't a post about the one direction song, although I am now singing that to myself whilst typing! This morning my mum called, she told me to drop Freddie at her house and to go shopping for some summer clothes, as if the offer wasn't already amazing, she then gave me some money to treat myself. Now to those that don't have children this may not seem like a massive deal but if you have then you won't need me to tell you this was such a lovely little gesture, a whole afternoon to myself, for myself - bliss!
I never usually spend money on myself, only if I'm forced into buying something due to my clothes falling apart. I'd rather buy Freddie something new or treat my partner who works so hard to look after us, I felt a little overwhelmed as where to start - although as you can imagine that didn't last long. My summer wardrobe has had a much needed update and I even had time to enjoy a late lunch and a cheeky cocktail in the sun whilst people watching before heading home!
To my mum this was such a little thing to do, to me it was one of the kindest and most thoughtful things. Have you ever done something like this for someone, or better still has anyone done this for you, I'd love to know in the comments!
