All work and no play...

Makes Mandy a very tired lady dear reader, I am shattered this morning after 14 photo shoots over the weekend at 2 separate locations, Saturday was Saltwell Park and yesterday was Jesmond Dene, I lost 2 photo shoots along the way, one due to a sick toddler and one where traffic stopped clients getting to me until 5 minutes before the end of their time slot so those will both be rescheduled.

I went through a lot of coffee, energy drinks and batteries and my hand is like a claw this morning but it was a great weekend as you can see from the photos.  The weather was pretty amazing on both days and I have to say a big thank you to Looby and Stacey who were both there helping on Saturday.

I've decided to give mini sessions one more roll out this year and you can now book for Jesmond Dene on Sunday 23rd of November, I'm calling them Christmas mini sessions but Christmas jumpers are not compulsory, although they're a lot of fun so why not?!  Sessions are available at 10, 10.30, 11, 11.30, 12,30, 1, 1.30, 2 and 2.30pm and they're £25 which includes a complimentary 7x5 print, a web gallery for 30 days and 15% off for the first day your gallery is live.  There will be no further mini sessions after this until sometime around Mothers day so don't delay and book today!

On a personal level I literally did nothing apart from come home, eat and sleep, it makes me realise how much I love only working 1 day over the weekend and I'm delighted that I have this Saturday off to spend with my children, I am working a couple more full weekends before Christmas and I have bookings in my diary right up until the middle of December so I'm finding that although it's taken a little adjustment it's still mostly possible to have a career as a single parent although that's mostly thanks to being able to be co-parents without arguing, fighting or squabbling with Paul.

Today I have a photo shoot this afternoon and this morning, well I need to go lie in a bath and try to sort out my aching muscles, you know I used to do up to 17 photo shoots every single weekend, no wonder I was exhausted in January.

Have a great week and I promise to get back to regular blogging even though I have another 8 photo shoots coming up over the course of the week.
