Restoring the Stretch in My Elastic

At the moment, the main thing that this Elastic Mom is stretching, is my energy levels. I have been flagging a little lately. You know, colds, moving house, admin, wonderful visitors and also saying goodbye to friends leaving. 

I know my limits, and so, I have been looking at ways to restore my bounce. I tried running again to boost the endorphins, but my leg injury acted up. I tried cutting out sugar, but my friend bakes the best chocolate cakes. I was encouraged to take a tonic, but it tastes vile, and then I found the answer.

Best of all, it doesn't cost a cent. 

I bet you are wondering what it is. 

I feel better than James Brown after this pick me up. 

It doesn't contain caffeine, alcohol or any other harmful substance. 

Have you guessed it yet?

And it is fantastic, quite safe and effective for restoring for flagging energy levels from tiny babies to those more senior frail people, and anyone else in between. 

The only hitch is that you need to use this energy restorer when you are completely alone, preferably behind a closed door.

That's it you got it!

 A good, deep, long afternoon nap. 

I took one today and it has worked wonders. 

I might even sneak one somewhere between the box packing tomorrow.


  1. Well done! I don't set aside a whole day for sleep but Sundays are my rest day and I do have a nap in the p.m. Happy packing my friend!

  2. Quite right! An afternoon nap does do wonders. Good luck with the move this week Cath.

  3. Nothing beats a nap especially with a fury warm living breathing hot water bottle curled up beside you.
