Being a mum of a little baby and a pre-schooler its safe to say I don't have much in the way of free time or 'me time' these days. I obviously wouldn't change it for the world but I find that I'm a much happier parent when I do get a little time to myself. Even if it's just a half hour in the bath with a good book or a massage once a in a blue moon! I'm teaming up with Crocs for this post to celebrate 'moms day off'.
Whilst Wilf isn't yet in school (although we just had his school place for this year! *sob sob*) he does do two days in nursery so that I can keep on top of work and whilst Tom is still taking my maternity leave he can watch the baby in between feeds whilst I get caught up. Sometimes being a mum can make you feel overwhelmed as you are needed so much, ALL the time. Whilst I love being a parent and wouldn't have it any other way I actually feel like I do it better when I've had minute (or 60) to recharge a little.
This week I did just that and spent an hour enjoying brunch at a newly opened bakery in Bristol called Pinkmans. The decor is just spot on and very instagramable ha! Most importantly the coffee and the food was just amazing, this is from someone who takes her coffee very seriously.
I chose these sandals from Crocs and was really impressed with how comfy they are! Running around after my four year old means that I need to have something on my feet that can last the whole day without making my feet ache and it helps when they are cute too.
How pretty are these blooms? I'm so glad the weather is warming up enough to show my feet again!
I ordered the baked egg and finished it off with the most amazing donut I have ever eaten, no word of a lie. Although I was so full after that combination you could have rolled me down the hill home afterwards.
Thanks for having us Pinkmans!
