o0o It’s been a while since my last post (about 6 weeks or so), and I apologize if you’ve missed me – although it is the season for most people of busy-ness and stress – so it’s probably the case that you haven’t even noticed I haven’t been around…!… Continue reading »
o0o I’m sooooooo PROUD of My Love right now!! Its been something that I have tried for, asked for, and wanted for over a decade – and last week it finally happened.
o0o SO…here I am once again sitting at the airport, waiting to get on a flight and I’m southbound again to go and help with tidying up yet more affairs of my deceased Mumma and her very-much-alive Hubby (TnT) – who is now in Aged Care. Its been a… Continue reading »
o0o I broke. Plain and simple – i broke… This past fortnight – my mind just couldn’t keep itself together anymore, and i broke… I went to the Doctor back before we went to New Zealand, just for a general annual checkup; and when we were finishing up, I… Continue reading »
o0o Recently – I have felt myself spiraling in panic. This is not a ‘new’ sensation for me. When parts of my life are not running smoothly and for some reason,
o0o Its only a matter of days now, before we leave on our much-needed vacation, so as you can imagine I am neck deep in planning and organising, which for me means the there are lists aplenty going on! Lists for whats already packed, lists for what still… Continue reading »
o0o So after talking about how difficult making friends is – and how bloody rubbish I am at it – a strange thing happened the week before last… I had two ‘coffee dates’!! One Friday – one the following Monday. The one on Friday was the second time I… Continue reading »
o0o UGH! Damn dental distractions!! Its been a rather ‘uncomfortable’ week with me trying to ignore a possibly impending tooth infection, that didn’t go away when it was ignored, and thus resulted in me having to leave work when
Smoking you ask? Are you still smoking? Wellllll – I’m glad you asked!! It’s a month in (well, 4 weeks lol) – in case you’ve been keeping track – and still she doesn’t smoke! That’s right folks. I’m a month clean!! But what I’m even more incredibly proud… Continue reading »
. Its a year on from my “one step at a time” post – and I’m reflecting a bit about where I am now as opposed to this time last year. Some things haven’t yet changed. I am still at my job as a Manager, I am still working… Continue reading »
. It was a bit of a shit ending to 2017 for me… I somehow managed to put my back out again – whilst getting up from the toilet. How does that even happen!?!? I spent that day being pretty damn teary and miserable – I didn’t feel like… Continue reading »
. My Physio relocated to one of the southern states back in early October. Before she left – she arranged for another physio in the same practice to take over my care, as I had seen this other physio a few times (when my usual wasn’t available) and she… 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 »
. I’m having a bit of a ‘comparison’ dilemma at the moment and whilst I know that comparing oneself to others is never a healthy or helpful thing – I’m just not quite sure how to get it “out of my system”… It makes it that much harder – because… Continue reading »
o0o I am SO damn frustrated and cranky today!!! There are a few things that have ‘led’ me here – but I guess the main one is fear and concern for my Family…. My sister, nephew, his wife and their two kids live in the BVI, and hurricane Irma has… 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….
Its been a damp drizzly cold morning, so I decided to drag out the sewing machine and knock up a few things with some “leftovers”. First up was a pair of old cotton curtains that have seen better days, and are not longer of use in keeping the heat/cold out… Continue reading »
. Most of my life has been spent trying to shrink myself. Trying to become smaller. Quieter. Less sensitive. Less opinionated. Less needy.
. Back before we actually owned our Farm we started to plan our
. This morning, while I’m having some up-and-about time, I’m doing some seed-planting, ready to get some autumn/winter crops into the big vegie gardens. Will hopefully have a decent strike rate, although I can’t quite remember how old these seeds are, and they haven’t been kept in the most favourable… Continue reading »
