o0o When you’re feeling a bit flat, one of the very best therapies is to get outside. If you can plant something and immerse your hands in the dirt, it makes the experience that much better for you!! There has been so much evidence around the massive improvements… Continue reading »
o0o So here I am – officially over 3 months unemployed!! Its time for a bit more of an in-depth run-down of what Life has been like for me for the last three months – so I’m going to break it down into sections to help me arrange my… Continue reading »
o0o Its six weeks since I last posted. Six weeks since the event that changed my dear friends Life forever – in ways that I can barely begin to imagine. Its also 6 weeks in which my Life has changed – because of the hideous heartbreak my friend has… Continue reading »
o0o I feel so at odds of late. In the quiet times when I am by myself, and I am able to spend time being introspective – I can see that I am in a season of a very negative headspace – and have been unable to shift it…… Continue reading »
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 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 Breathe. You’re going to be okay.
o0o I feel like I have a million irons in the fire right now – and I’m going to need to be super-diligent of how I schedule my Life and time over the next couple of weeks, otherwise I know that I am going to seriously deplete my… Continue reading »
. The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unlovable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy…It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all… 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 »
. Its been a couple of weeks since my last update – and a lot has been happening about the place… The Wedding has come and gone – and yes – of course, is was beautiful, wonderful, emotional – and our youngest daughter and her husband are currently off
. 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 only work three days a week – Tues, Wed, Thurs – so I am lucky in that I get a four-day weekend. In theory… But these days – my work environment ramps up my anxiety like almost nothing else – so after those three days, I spend Friday… Continue reading »
What a wonderful way to start my ‘me-time Monday’..!
. 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….

I’m changing my Life. One small step at a time… I’m moving myself slowly and gently back towards being a Simple Life House Spouse. What does that actually mean? To me and for me – it means that my Life will no longer be about working outside of the home…. Continue reading »
