I guess the other little bit of glam is some post production which I haven't really been into before. I'm very new to photoshop (elements) and the glam theme seems the perfect time to have a little play, to experiment. Because in some ways, the essence of glam is fake, pretend, things done for effect. I have a zillion ideas, but so much to learn.
The beach outing was my planned birthday treat. Our birthdays are a day apart and Gerard wanted a social event, which he had on Sunday. This was mine. Just a simple day out with G and Grace. A lunch of fish and chips with diet coke for me, chips and cornjacks for G. Little bits of everything for Grace, except for the coke. Which felt uber trashy, like we could be pounced upon by a current affairs show or human services at any moment for letting our toddler eat chips.* But there were cherries for desert, which evens it out a little. Then a big walk along the beach, taking big eyefuls of clouds and waves and cliffs. Being buffeted by the wind, breathing salty fresh air. My back ache is all but gone and I feel a good sort of tired. Like I've danced all night, laid about all day and am ready to be tucked into bed. And sleep.

*Children and babies eating junk food is in the news alot in Melbourne at the moment. Grace actually has quite a healthy diet, she even eats greens like silver beet and brussels sprouts. Something I'm aware might not last.
