Things I like to do now that I didn’t like to do before I had a baby (and turned 30)
I’m not saying they’re connected but I’ve noticed recently there are a number of things that I like to do now that I’d never have considered before. Now it’s either because a) I’m now 31 and starting to become an old fart b) this has all happened since I had a baby or c) a combination of the both.
I now like……
Having a bath (I do wash but I was always a shower girl you know until I realised I could be getting clean, lying down and almost sleeping at the same time – win)
Reading a book in the bath
Putting on make-up (well it’s pretty much a necessity if I don’t want to scare the general public)
Painting my nails
Drinking red wine (well anything remotely alcoholic really)
Hanging washing out on the line (if it’s sunny, ima gonna get that wash on)
Going anywhere alone (rarely happens but still)
Getting up early (well really I’ve just got used to this)
Radio 4 (I need all the news now)
Moaning about the new music on Radio one
Eating percy pigs
Original versions of songs not awful cover versions
Question Time (I like a good debate)
Coffee (never touched it before. I guess it’s mildly better than smoking)
Lie-ins (I used to think a lie in was wasting the day! Whatevs!)
Working out how much younger people are than me
Bars that don’t have music so loud you can’t hear a word anyone says
Getting the train. And the quiet coach.
Eating Nancy’s leftovers (they always taste the best, don’t they?)
Julia Donaldson books (I will ever tire of reading jack and the flum flum tree)
Have you noticed any differences in yourself? What do you now like that you used to not like? Am I just a mad thing? Let me know in the comments below!
