Favourite quote

What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived.
It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

Busy morning

Up at 6.30 (mainly because I always am)
Got dressed pretty and at 7.15 left home with one of my daughters.
We stopped at McDonalds, she had breakfast and coffee, while I just had a mocha.

 

After dropping off my daughter at a business center, I headed in to the city to practice my photography (ie use my ND filters to get some shots below 2 seconds and get used to manual mode).

 

 

Switched to my phone after the camera low battery warning, I wanted some relaxed photos of me, just being me, for this blog.

 

The weather cooled down rapidly so with a quick car change I headed to the mall.

 

Funnily enough, I wasn't the only one photographing me, I should have told the chap I would be happy posing with his family, that way he wouldn't have to sneak a photo, alternatively he could have just looked at this blog.

I went in to Pagani, one of my favourite women's shop.
The clothes are just too nice and normally out of my budget, but I found this on sale for $50.
 


Yes I know to you it just looks like a bloke in a dress, but it's the type, colour and material I just felt so happy in, I didn't want to ever take it off.

So I didn't, the staff just lifted my skirt, removed the security tag, I paid and off I went as happy as a fireman with a new truck, or is that as happy as a child in a sweet shop.


An hour later, changed 😢, but with pretty pink fingernails and eyeliner/shadow, I meet up with "The Ex" to discuss how she should attempt to re-build her relationship with our 15 year old daughter (who has recently moved in with me full time).
