The thing is, between 4pm and 8pm I feel bone tired. Then 9, 10pm rocks around and I'm all bright-eyes and busy-tailed. It's just not right.
I've always been a night owl. Always. Never a night person. I've tried to reverse this but it's just not in my DNA. Every one in my family is a night owl. I know I can message one of my sisters at midnight and 9 times out of 10 get reply from them. It must be genetic!
Dave worked night shift last night. On his day off. Which means he is going to be sleeping all day today. And then working all weekend. I can't wait until next Thursday when I don't have to get up for Tafe and Dave starts his time off for a week. I am so gonna sleep in to 12 one day, I am telling you now!
In other news, we started learning about using flash in our photography and I finally went and bought myself a flash unit. I got a voucher for Christmas and I've been holding off on spending it until we had a chance to use the different flash units at Tafe and I could decide which one to get. It's so much fun learning new things and experimenting.
Expect to see some nicely lit photos in the coming weeks! Lol!
But anyway, enough of me moaning and boasting and on to my links...

And now, I introduce you to my special guest Linky Lover for this week...
Amy is the brains behind the awesome blog Handbag Mafia. I'm sure she doesn't need much introduction to you lovely, well-read people. Amy tells it like it is and isn't afraid to discuss the tough topics on her blog. I admire her way with words and the way she doesn't shy away from her opinions.
If you're looking for interesting, thought-provoking writing then Amy's blog is one you'll want to check out. Below are her three favourite links for the week, and why she loved them...
Why I am a Feminist by Sanch Living Life
Amy says "Sanch talks about why she is a feminist with particular reference to growing up in India and the recent victim-blaming comments made by the lawyers and defendants in the case of the rape and murder of Jyoti Singh."
Scrawling Precious by Sand Has No Home
Amy says "Dani is musing on writing letters and bloggingand how it helps her and she writes so beautifully that I'd probably read her shopping list quite happily."
What is domestic violence and why should I care by Seeing the Lighter Side of Parenting
Amy says "Bec attended a forum on domestic violence and has eloquently written about why we need to be talking about this. This is an issue very close to my heart and I urge everyone to have a read."
So there you have it, three links from me, and three awesome links from Amy. Make sure you check them out, and don't forget to stop by Amy's blog for some juicy posts of her own.
