What a difference a month can make! Getting wet on purpose to now, trying our hardest NOT to get wet. It's been raining here for days here. Autumn has finally arrived. It seems fitting given my emotional state at the moment.
When I realised it was the tenth of the month, I really didn't want to do it. Anger and exhaustion aren't the best combination for taking good photos. The darkness in these photos is not by accident.
It's been a very long month with my husband working ridiculous hours. It's exhausting for him, and for us. The flow on effect for us, who rely on him so much, is taxing to say the least. But I think it's more than that this time.
As I drove away from home in the darkness last night - in a dress, with my sultanaless handbag - I felt the weight fall away. With the music loud, I drove through the heavy rain to have dinner with friends, old and new. To go anywhere by myself lately has been a rare event and I need a break. While an evening out isn't going to fix me right now, it was everything I needed last night. Conversation, laughter and beautiful food - with beautiful friends. Today will be better because of it.
