For almost 5 years, I have not been able to do that really.
It is not quite the same to go out to a restaurant or cafe and lunch there without my kids. While I enjoy fine dining, sometimes I do prefer to just eat alone in the comfort of my home. Make a simple lunch for just me and nibble in peace.
I can do that now that my boys are in school. Ahh.... finally!! :>
Today, I did just that. My simple source of bliss. And I am savouring every moment of it.
