One evening out, babysitter in charge at home, no 'mama' this 'mama' that, is often all it takes to feel the balance again. A couple of glasses of red, a lovely cheese board, bread, tapenade, and the world seems a friendly place.
That was my evening yesterday. Instead of opening the MacBook and blog surfing or Facebooking for hours on end, or reading until my head is dropping and going to bed much later than really needed. Nails were painted in Chanel 'Particuliere', my highest heels, my favourite black suede trench coat, and my lovely Swarovski black ring were all put on and I was out the door without barely a backwards glance, and off into town on my bike (this is Holland you know!). A small group of us, in need of an evening out of the house, met at a new bar / restaurant in town and talked, and ate, and laughed and enjoyed just being 'out'.
And now I'm ready to face the weekend ahead. Wishing you a good one.
