Mondays ( when it is just £3.00 all day)…..

New Monday Mummy Me Time @ The Nurture Barn starting 11th June. Massages for tired mummies with Kia of Takesometime.

As a mum you shouldn’t feel guilty or even made to feel guilty about wanting a bit of ‘ME’ time……why? Because you’re human! It is important, vital even, to reconnect with yourself once in a while and by doing so, by giving yourself an opportunity just for a short time to relax, to breath, to think ‘I really needed to do this for ME’ will have such a positive impact on your wellbeing of which will benefit others around you! Sound good? Well add on the feeling of helping other mums to do the same and you’ll feel amazing!

This is how it works…..

You’ll need 2-4 Mums that you know well to be free on a Monday as you will be tag teaming and take it in turns to look after one another’s little one, so you can switch off and relax.

Choose your half hour slot from 10-10.30, 10.30-11, 11-11.30, 11.30-12, 12-12.30, 1-1.30, 1.30-2, 2-2.30 and 2.30-3.
