I love to cook and bake, I usually bake with Eric but sometimes I'll bake on my own, if it's something that takes longer (like cinnamon buns!) I find concentrating on the recipe really relaxing. My favourite baking recipe book at the moment is Ms Cupcake, it's soooooo good! But often I'll look for raw vegan recipes online so we eat more healthy options too, like my raw vegan brownies.
I looooooooooooove Pinterest. So much. If I'm stressed then I find half an hour pinning and looking through my boards so relaxing. My Pinterest name is missfliss if you'd like to follow me!
4) Watching TV.
5) Evening lie ins.
When Alex works he is away from home, usually overseas, so I don't get the opportunity of having a lie-in. To make up for that sometimes I will go to bed straight after Eric and have an 'evening lie in'. I make tea and pastries like pain au chocolat (I love the Jus-Rol ones as an occasional treat!) and read books or magazines in bed for a few hours!

I've been setting my alarm to get up before Eric wakes up four times a week for the last couple of weeks and have been going out for an early morning run or doing a yoga or ballet workout DVD. I've also been going running when Eric is at preschool for his half day. I've really enjoyed this (more than I imagined I would!) and am feeling so much more energised and happy from the exercise, not to mention proud of the achievements. I use the Map My Run app to record all my workouts so I can look back on the week and see my progress.
7) A bath.
8) Watching YouTube.
9) Seeing friends.
I'm lucky having Alex at home at the moment as I can go out in the evening sometimes. I have a couple of close friends in our village and usually we will go to one of our houses for a movie night. I love getting to have a chat and catch up with them and to relax together.
