Tough day today. Its nothing most working Mums don’t go through, but my head has been filled with guilt, sorrow and questions today. Thanks to the new job landing right on half term it meant that we had to find somewhere for the kids to go whilst we are at work, and very kindly my in-laws helped out.
Today though, Oli cried on the phone. He never cries. It literally broke my heart. All these questions have been flying around my head. Why am I doing this? Is the money that important when my children are crying on the phone? Is the pain they are feeling all worth it? I didn’t have the answers, I don’t think you ever have the answers. I think you can just hope that in the end it will be all worth it.
There was one person though who knew exactly how to take my mind off it all, and that was our beautiful puppy Unis. Thank god for the light nights, because it meant I could go home, get changed and we went straight out for a few hours on Highgate Common.
She ran, I ran, the sun shone and the birds sang. It was totally and utterly beautiful.
This was her tonight, and a few other shots from Highgate Common as well.
