-=- I’m again ripping the bandaid off and posting a simple stocktake of where I’m at right now. Its been a weird month, and one in which I’ve been doing some soul-searching about the direction that this particular site should take – and even whether or not

backstory breakthrough

backstory breakthrough

  o0o   Back in June last year I’d been hammering on for probably 2 years about leaving work, but still couldn’t see a finish line particularly due to the fact that I had $13 less than $14,000 in credit card debt. 😐 However, back in June last year –… Continue reading »

RECIPE: Butter Chicken

RECIPE: BUTTER CHICKEN

  I’ve always been a bit careful of cooking with herbs and spices. Truth be told, I’m a bit scared of them – as I don’t know how they fit together and how each herb and/or spice reacts with and compliments others or how the tasty flavours are made. But… Continue reading »

progress

    I’ve spent my “free-time Friday” this week, moving furniture around a bit within our little home. I’ve now made room for my writing desk to go into our living room space so that it will front on to the big glass doors, which means I’ll now have a… Continue reading »

comparisons

. 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 »

reflection

. 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 »
