Let's hear it for...

....well, when I said I would see you on Tuesday, I didn't exactly say which Tuesday it would be!

I did something pretty indulgent last week.

I ran away from home, on my own and stayed away for two whole nights. I didn't speak to another person for a total of 24hours before dabbling in a tiny bit of retail therapy in beautiful Melbourne (oh sweet city of mine, how I adore you!). I also took myself to a gorgeous and renowned French bistro for lunch - Steak au Poivre and Chocolate Souffle washed down with a glass of Shiraz. Seriously indulgent. And it worked! As every hour went by I could feel myself thinking clearly again, the creative juices began flowing, my enthusiasm for everything returned full throttle. And now, here I am, on the second shortest day of the year (yes, I got to hear a little of what was happening in the Southern Hemisphere too!!) ready for a fabulous second half of the year.

So, let's hear it for running away from home and recharging those batteries!

Such a good idea... everyone (but especially mums) should be able to do this once a year, at least!
