Lady of the Night

I'm going out tonight.

"That's nice", I can hear many of you say. Many people go out on a Friday night. But listen more carefully...

I'm going out tonight. Me. Out. For the first time in about six months. Out. At night. After dark. To dinner. To eat Tibetan. And to go to the theatre. To see the adaptation of a book I've loved for years (He Died with a Falafel in his Hands). Out. In nice clothes. And probably some of that suck-you-in-everywhere underwear so that I can pretend I don't have such a huge baby-belly still. Out. In nice clothes. With makeup. And perfume. And with a hair style that isn't just a thoughtlessly pulled back ponytail. And high heels (THAT hasn't happened in over a year!). Out. With people. With people who are also out at night. People who probably have lives. So I can pretend that I too have a life.

I'm going out tonight.

In the meantime, I've been playing with how I photograph my rings for Etsy.

With the usual backdrop....


In the bonsai....


On a book...


Oh, and did I tell you that I'm going out tonight?

How excitement! Hope you have a great night out.

I went to the movies last night. To the movies, at night, without children, shock horror!!! Kids are away with Grannie, so hubby and I went and saw Avatar. It is brilliant!!

Careful in those heels, they can be dangerous when you're out of practice. ;-)

See I could write have a great night, but it wont matter because you are out - not there out - I am of course home, but that is ok - I am happy for you to be out, and then when you come home it will smell better than ever before

Right Now - at night - I hope you are having the best time ever !!!

I totally understand! Since becoming a mum I also hardly ever go out after dark, to the point now where I find it hard driving at night because I'm so out of practice! Ah well, sad but also I wouldn't change it for the world! Hope you have a wonderful time.
