I am one of those mummies who loves reading but never finds the right time.
And yes, it is not easy to find the time when you have been all day at work, and then you pick up the children, take them to activities, shower them, prepare dinner, put them in bed… And then… once in bed… the fake-glory moment! “now I got some time for me” but first let me do the laundry and clean up the kitchen while the washing machine ends, so I can iron and get the clothes ready for tomorrow. And then when you would actually have the time… you are completely exhausted. ( I am sure all those mummies who love reading know what I am talking about.)
Finally there is that day when grandparents call saying… Could we have the kids this afternoon…? We really miss them! And then you see the light. 💡📖
I get my beloved book and pick a reading spot. I love reading outside; that priceless breeze caressing my face and some sunshine around. I look for a tree and set my tea pot, some snacks, pillows and since I know I will have a few hours from now, I even set the tent. Now I am ready to immerse myself to a different world.
Those are the advantages of living in paradise, the advantages of having an endless garden and nature all around.
