    Default what to do with 5 kid free hours??

    I will have 5 hours child free this Friday.. (have 3 under 6) So... what can I do? I hardly ever have free time - actually it's rare... I don't like facials, massages etc. Don't want to catch up with any friends (just want some time to myself..) but don't know what to do!!! Any ideas? I'm in Brisbane.

    I love going to the movies by myself, followed by a yummy lunch.

    Yay for you!!

    Things that come to my mind:

    -A walk somewhere...probably to a cafe. Have a coffee or two.
    -read newspaper or do sudoku/crossword. Things I used to do.
    -use the headspace to write a nice long to do list while I'm there to help get organised
    -write a letter to a friend...I owe a few
    -go have a really nice meal somewhere
    -just hop in the car and drive, make it up as you go along, listen to what you want
    -get creative in the kitchen
    -read a book or read up on something you're getting interested in...

    Those are some of the things I would be doing!!

    Oh I hope you enjoy whatever you do!!

    If I had 5 hours kid free...

    -enjoy coffee and cake at my fave cafe while reading a trashy magazine
    -see a movie
    -go shopping for clothes/bras (much easier without kids in tow!)
    -take a walk by the beach

    I had a GREAT time!! Went and had a nice café breakfast with a magazine, then bought some new clothes and a nice pair of heels... then off to get some French tips put on my fingernails and a spa pedicure.... bliss! felt a million bucks.
