My first thought on seeing my daughter relaxing on my parents dining table was,
‘Get off, we don’t lie on the table!’
Luckily, I’m now much more able to check my immediate thoughts before I voice them.
I stopped and took in the view:
Stuffed animal as a pillow, favourite soft toy to snuggle, a blanket in case she got cold and of course, her all important phone to chill with.
How many of us can get comfortable wherever we are?
How many of us can stop rushing about and relax when we need a rest?
Or do we tell ourselves that we’ll relax later, or tomorrow, maybe when we get somewhere quiet, or when we go on holiday, or to the spa?
It occurred to me that my daughter had got creative with her relaxation, so rather than give in to my initial thoughts about the appropriateness of chilling on a table, I took a photo for posterity, and marvelled at the ability of children to find satisfaction in the moment.
What’s the most unlikely place you’ve ever managed to relax?
