After dark

Last night, I frocked up, put on my face and got a cab to a local bar. On a school night. I know! I didn't recognise myself either.

It felt weird to be out after dark with no small people. Chatting, relaxing – it was fabulous and certainly needed. Being in Dubai without support has meant virtually no time away from the kids.

Another mum from school came with me and we talked and laughed and talked some more. Sitting outside in the balmy Dubai evening, I could have been back in Sydney on a summer's evening. The only difference was the sweet fragrant smoke of the many shishas.

Eventually I slipped into bed just after midnight. Today I paid the price for sneaking out on a school night but it was worth it.


  1. yay you! bloody brilliant! I love that fragrant shisha smell in the night air tooxx

  2. Oh Corinne, how fantastic! Good on you my friend, so glad to hear you're getting out and doing something just for you. But hey, I'd love a bit of a picci next time... even just a corny selfie would suffice :) xo

  3. Well done you! Hope you feel more relaxed for it.


Thank you so much for your comments! I'm always thrilled to hear from you.
