Between eight and nine o'clock every evening, this conversation can be heard in our household.
Mum: "Oh guys, come and see the sunset. It's absolutely gorgeous!"
Family Member(s): "Mhmmm...."
Mum: "Oi! Come and see this."
FM (sighing slightly exasperatedly): "Mum...we saw it last night."
Mum: "No, no. It's not the same tonight. Hurry up before it disappears."
One, or maybe two, will feel obliged and arrive at my side. "Isn't it stunning?", I ask.
"Mum, it's lovely. Yep. Lovely. .... just like last night's was"
And so, I'm left to appreciate the beauty before me on my own.
The night before last, it looked like this.
And tonight it looked like this...
See.... never the same. But always beautiful, and so relaxing at the end of a busy day.
And if we keep having sunny days, I may just call all you guys over every evening to have a look at our sunset. Yes, every evening, because it's never the same two nights running. Just ask my kids.
