Well a week in Cyprus did me the world of good. No phone. No internet. Just swimming under the sun and stars, heat on my bones, reading, playing table tennis and crib, drinking too much wine and frappes. All seems like shadows in another world now that I am back to reality.
The past few weeks have been verging on silly in terms of being busy – long hectic hours with nothing left in me to give at the end of the day. I have been hanging out for nine, yes nine days off!!
I now feel a sense of relief and a very lucky lady as I am getting to shoot off to the sun for a few days. Relaxation, swimming, heat in my bones, re-finding my freckles and spending time with my family…..I cannot wait.
When I’ve not been working I have been able to grab a cuppa with one of my best friends, who just happens to be a neighbour too…inbetween shifts…

It’s Monday, it is going to be a long week work wise. I loved my weekend, I filled it with friends, laughter, photography and culture thrown in. Having a great weekend really does help me get through my early starts and busy work days. I think Autumn is my favourite season. The light is great and nature is starting to get a little rough around the edges….just how I like it. Here some of my images from yesterdays day out…

Earth Moon Earth by Katie Paterson a stunning installation at Jupiter Artland is one of the many wonderful things there to get your creative juices going…… a kind of self playing piano. Shame I was a little too late in going this year (Sunday was the last day, and God how I loved it). That will teach me.

Today I hooked up with my friend, the newly married Aghogho of Zelda and Festus at Edinburgh’s Flea Market, where she was selling vintage clothing and her accessories line.
I drank tea. She sold her wares. We took images like we love to do.

I love the moments in-between, spaces filled with the ordinary. This shot was taken on my recent visit to the Q pop restaurant on Selfridges roof, after my meal. I was waiting on my friend who was at the loo. Incidently, the food, view and company at Q was divine but the service pretty poor.
