A Little Balance

I recently had my first day off work in weeks. It’s something of a myth that self-employed people can take holidays or chill out whenever they feel like it…certainly in the longer term my husband (and in this context business partner!) and I will be aiming for an improved work/life balance, but for now, it’s work that holds sway the majority of the time.  At the moment I’ve been working so long and so hard that I’m feeling a little unlike myself.  A little of my natural spark, my deep-seated love of life, is feeling subdued.  I needed to do something to remind me of its existence; to breath some life and tranquility back into myself; to enjoy the beautiful world outside.  So we went for a day out to walk around the gardens at Chatsworth, cameras in hand.  I strolled, I looked, I spotted beautiful things to carefully frame and commit to film.
