A moment to oneself is a rarity at present, gone are the days when I have the time to tootle down to the shore and sit contemplating the wonders of the World.
It’s all very well having time to yourself but for someone like myself, it’s far better to keep busy as having the time to sit and ponder isn’t healthy nor productive.
Earlier this week I was given two hours rest bite from the parenting pandemonium. After dropping my little darlings off with their Grandparents, I had fully intended to go straight back to the house of hound but having had a taste for freedom, I took a detour and sought sanctuary at the shore.
It may have only been a five-minute fix but it was well worth it; the breeze through my hair and the scent of the sea was serene, melting away my worries from the week
As I stood leant against my motor, listening to the muffled Music from the radio, I cast my gaze upon the horizon; the heavy, grey clouds frowned upon the landscape, casting shadows upon the shoreline whilst simultaneously opening a tunnel of light which shone down upon the sea.
Closing my eyes for a second, I found solace at the shore. It’s moments like these, movie moments if you will, they may seem very slight but they are inestimable.

Down by the sea
I lost control here
