Dettol organised for myself and four other mama bloggers (the lovely Nicole, Lori, Dani and Lexi) to get together for some fancy R&R and talk about 'celebrating mums as women' at the Sheraton in Sydney. We visited the spa overlooking Hyde Park, ate a tasty lunch and chatted about everything from hygiene and the kids, to how we take time out for ourselves. Would you like to see?
As you saw in the video I confessed my (ahem) slightly obsessive hand washing tendencies. I have also thoughtfully passed this obsession on to my kids who were more than approving of the samples of Dettol's Touch of Foam hand wash that I brought home. The teen volunteered that 'Rose and Cherry Bloom' smelt like "fruit juice" and the preschooler announced in delight, "It already has bubbles before you even put it in the water!" Indeed. It also feels soft and moisturising on my hands, kills 99.9% of germs and comes in three varients.
I really enjoyed meeting these lovely ladies and having some time out for myself. As I mentioned, ducking up the street to have a quick manicure or a pedicure and catching up on the gossip mags is really one of the only ways I find time for myself at the moment. ( I never did this before I had kids!)
What do you do to take time out for yourself? I'd love to hear!
