There is no denying that being a mother of 3 and running a business is busy, but it’s a good busy. I really love being a mum, and I really love my photography. But sometimes a little time-out is needed.
After my session today I just wandered. Wandered around for hours with no real aim. I poked through paper shops, clothes stores, homewares, $2 shops… then I drove along the bay watching the water (and the road)… then through a bookstore where I got lost for over an hour (oh, and bumped into Glenn Robbins – you know Kel, from Kath and Kim)… then I stopped for lunch. Curled myself up in a booth with a soy moccha, roasted vegetable bagel with a side of fries (just needed them) and my brand new A4 notebook and brand new pen. I do love new stationery so much, and I also love writing lists, and I particularly love writing lists with new stationery. So there, on my comfortable lonesome, I watched the passers-by and scribbled furiously (but neatly) in my notebook, writing dreams and lists and goals and thoughts. It was just heavenly.
And then I returned to my 3 little billy-lids so calm and inspired and happy. Here are my delights with one of my purchases.
