Before I went on maternity leave the first time I remember reading an article about all these fantastic things that mums had done whilst taking time off work to look after their new babies.
Some wrote books, some travelled the world and some launched their own businesses. How amazing is that?
So you can imagine my shock when I found myself on maternity leave and accomplishing nothing – well except keeping a tiny human alive. I was lucky if I even managed to shower some days.
This time I know maternity leave will be different as I have a toddler too. But I’m determined to try and enjoy it more without putting all the extra pressure on myself.
So here’s my completely average, totally achievable maternity leave bucket list.
Wish me luck!
Watch lots of crap TV
Visit all the family
Explore more of the local town
Spend the day in your dressing gown
Watch a film from beginning to end
Go out and make a new mum friend
Take a nap during the day
Pamper all of your cares away
Go for a coffee and cake treat
Take prints of little hands and feet
Treat yourself to some new clothes
Shoot and print lots of special photos
