A list of pamper-experiences

The year’s at a close….enough worked, enough toiled over, enough worried. Put away your plans and regrets for next year (its just a week away for heavenssakes!!!) Here’s what the doctor prescribes:

Everyone needs some pampering sometime. Since most of us (yes, I included!!!) seem to have forgotten what that concept is, I’m putting down a list (oh, don’t I lurrrve doing that…). Feel free to add to this.

Head massage (with permission to fall asleep on application)

Back rub (ahhhhh…..)

Hot shower (alone? with company? I did say pamper yourself…whatever works for you 😉

Nice-smelling body wash

Loofah and a gentle soap

Sleep (uninterrupted by doorbell, phone, the neighborhood cricket game or your spouse/partner)

Warm melting chocolate (on pastry, cake, ice-cream or just by itself)

One full day with the house all to yourself (no family, no friends, no spouse/partners….also no TV, video or phone)

Sunday afternoon in bed with a good book (this doesn’t have to be Kundera or Shakespeare. Anything you enjoy….it could be Archie comics for all anyone knows)

Samosas and hot chai on a rainy evening

Stupid feel-good movies (mail me anyone who wants a list…I have a collection)

The wind blowing in your hair. Don’t trivialise this….do you know how many women are able to let themselves do this??? (Pollution! Tangles! Messed up dos!)

More ideas, anyone?
