Redeeming the time

Despite the eternal promise of a quiet start to the year, Betty’s 2012 has pretty much kicked off as it means to go on: most clients are back, noobs with resolutions flock to the studio, planning for university classes is well underway, and a whole evening was recently taken up with a year’s worth of invoicing. Last night, multitasking like a fiend, Betty packed the husband person into the car and drove over to the zoo, in whose general vicinity the husband person dropped off a pile of brochures. This task completed, they carried on to the circus school, which was suspiciously abandoned.

It dawned on Betty that it might have been an idea to check the timetable, because although there were open studio times over the last two weeks, the new term doesn’t start until next week.

– An empty summer’s evening!
– Any number of beautiful suburbs, beaches, and parks on the way home!
– Cafes aplenty lining the streets!

– Betty was wearing a onesie

The husband person, in the end, bought a pizza, and they parked underneath the harbour bridge (a truly gorgeous spot) while he ate it. And then they went home, and Betty invoiced eight months in advance.

Never mind. Here’s something pleasing:


This weekend is a long one, so the adventuring will doubtless take a turn for the better. Happy Friday, everybody.
