  1. Three sentences only. I should be making the most of my last days of freedom not spending hours reading posts on here !
    Heir finders (or whatever it is called?)
    Doing a tour of my garden in the mornings.
    Afternoon tea.

    the quiet
    my laptop
    the cats
  3. Staying up as late as I like.

    Not having to nag the children to get up, bathed, dressed etc; meaning I can have a leisurely cup of tea and listen to the radio.

    Watching the cricket ALL day!
  4. Lay ins.
    Lots of time to myself.
    Cooking delicious dinners that take a while to make but are so worth it - been trying to teach the OH, only time will tell if he's got it!

    Being free to alter my routine however I please: gym in the morning or afternoon; lunch at 12, 1 or 2pm; spontaneous trip into town..what ever I like!
    Cuddles with the cats.
    Having my evenings free to spend with my husband instead of just sitting next to him on the sofa marking whilst he plays Xbox/watches TV/fiddles around of Facebook.
    The lack of pressure and stress and constant worry that I'm about to be 'found out' all the time.
    The absence of arrogant teenagers and demanding parents.

    Being able to eat whenever I feel hungry
    Being able to drink whenever I feel thirsty
    Being able to wee every time I need to
  9. Not just me then! I was trying to forget this one.
  10. Wearing clothes and shoes that are perfectly comfortable and exactly warm or cool enough.

    Walking the dog for an hour and a half every day.

    Being able to let an hour slip by, hardly even noticing its passing!
  11. And not wearing a watch because I've forgotten to put one on

    Going to the gym when it's quiet as most other people are at work

    Reading copious amounts; about to re-read Rebecca but have a feeling it'll have to be put down again during term time.

    Eating / drinking / weeing when I need/want to.

    The lack of an alarm clock.

    Being relatively stress free.

    Having the time to cook interesting meals.

    Spending time with OH.

    However, I won't miss the decorating frenzy we've embarked upon!
