Immediate disclaimer, I have never salsa'd in my life! I am reminded again why I do this - pour my heart and soul out on a screen page available for all the world to see and cast judgement on. I am having a dance with myself and letting you the reader watch. We all have… Continue reading Step to the left, step to the right and salsa!
It feels like last week I was bitching that January was the longest month ever, and here we are in the last week of March. Did I blink wrong? Or was that breath a little too deep? The first quarter of the year is gone. I am not too sure what I managed to achieve… Continue reading Deep breath
Somewhere (yes, I am lazy) I have written of the perils of menopause. I can genuinely confirm that yes, it's true. Menopause is a BITCH - and definitely all capitals! I have never been someone who sweats. I did that whole elegant thing and just got a sheen on my skin, but actual perspiration just… Continue reading It’s true
Ha! The title is suggestive as all my words just went on strike! My weeks are generally full on. Work keeps me busy and with the longer commute, I am finding that by the time it gets to being at home, I am just done. Yet, amongst all the busy-ness, I am still getting major… Continue reading Elusive
It has been a strange couple of weeks. I have bounced between just wanting to die to extreme euphoria. My emotions, read hormones, have been so off centre that I have been unable to catch a breath. On top of this we have been attempting to expand our network. We are poly, for the new… Continue reading Bits and bobs
How easy is it to misunderstand someone's meanings and intentions? To flavour those interactions with your own anxiety and disappointment memories? We've had a few of those moments over the last week. Enough to cause, at least in my head, anguish. My heart hurts and my head runs through scenarios at a rate of knots.… Continue reading Misunderstanding
I have written about this before (and I am too lazy to go find it) but some days are harder than others. My kids are mid-twenties now. That old adage of enjoy them while you have them is most certainly true. Before you can blink they are out in the world finding their own way.… Continue reading Empty nest
So the second day of 2019 and here I am, no different than I was two days ago or even a week ago. Normally this is where I would lay out my lofty plans for the year and get right into all the growing and cleansing I will do. I would tell you all about… Continue reading 2019 … really?
It is interesting how some things creep up on you and bite. Those little critters should have been dealt with ages ago, they don't belong here in the present. That was your past and that has been handled. Well, so you thought. I have been "single" for close to 7 years now. Yes, I have… Continue reading That was unexpected
It comes for all of us one way or another. And it is a bitch. I can handle getting older and to some extent I can cope with the idea that parts of my body are now shutting down. But fuck me! Did it have to come with all this other crap too? Seriously?! The… Continue reading Menopause
