. Yesterday I was suffering through day #2 of a veryyyy tedious two day conference. I was not a particularly willing participant, and the content was at kindergarten level – so to say that I was
. I’ve been back to the house in town today, and have done some mega cleaning. All the floors have been vacuumed, and some of them mopped. The kitchen sink is sparkling like new and all the kitchen benches and the breakfast bar have been cleared and cleaned. I… Continue reading »
. This morning I had a major anxiety filled panic-ridden flipout… But first a bit of background. Our youngest daughter is getting married in eight days. yes – EIGHT! Now I am already having a bit of a belly-wobble about what may or may not be expected of us (well… Continue reading »
. Today is different. Today I got out of bed quite well rested. I had a really decent sleep last night, because it rained through the night, and i always sleep soooo much better when it rains. I have also taken a fortnight off work – which actually winds… Continue reading »

What a wonderful way to start my ‘me-time Monday’..!
. On reflection – the other day, I was shown a perfect example of how I know I’ve changed over the last couple of years. I had to go into town to do some shopping and plus a Physio appointment, but I was also going to the house in town… Continue reading »
. I came across the photo at the end of this post today – and it really resonated with me. Not because I needed someone to listen to me – but because I needed to listen to someone….

. What if I all I want is a small, slow, simple life? What if I am most happy in the space of in between? Where calm lives. What if I am mediocre and choose to be at peace with that? The world is such a noisy place. Loud, haranguing… Continue reading »
