Can I just have 5 minutes peace and quiet, please

How many times have you just wished you could have 5 minutes peace and quiet? 5 minutes in the bath without the kids knocking on the door wanting something and even when you get 5 minutes peace in the bath to relax and unwind it's not quite as somewhere in the house there is an argument going on?



Today in Morrison's I had a mini melt down, the tears flowed. I just wanted 5 minutes peace and quiet. I bought these, as tonight I plan on spending time in the bath treating myself, relaxing, me time.

It's achievable tonight, I'm staying with friends. So why the mini breakdown?

We are waiting for confirmation of youngest son, aged 14, returning to the UK in September to start boarding school for his GCSE's and A levels. The 18 year old isn't at all time consuming especially since he passed his driving test earlier this year, so school runs and lifts for clubs and activities stopped a while ago.

From September onwards I'm going to have 5 minutes peace and quiet whenever I want it and that's just the problem. 5 minutes peace and quiet isn't needed when you don't have anything to take a break from.

  1. 14 and leaving home? I'm not surprised you had a mini melt-down! Especially as you will be thousands of miles away from him...I'm not helping. Sorry!
    Thank goodness it's not half a dozen timezones away too and that there is skype and google hangouts, right?

    1. I've decided to park my emotions for the time being, I think it's been harder because son wants to go back to boarding school in the uk

  2. Oh my goodness, I have nothing constructive to say - except my heart goes out to you. I think many mothers would be having a mini meltdown in your situation. x
