Well, we certainly got the year off to a bang! New job, new home, R injured, new ladies group and finally a breath of air for myself. Some days I just wonder how the hell I got here. It is autumn here in Aus. Cool mornings, interlaced with those Indian summer days, and then the… Continue reading May, autumn and thoughts
Trying too hard
Yep, I have come to the realisation that I am trying too hard. I am giving up time, energy and effort for little to no return, and it doesn't even make me feel good! All I feel is tired - no make that exhausted - and unhappy. So unhappy in fact that I find it… Continue reading Trying too hard
So it wasn’t my last post!
It appears there is more time to squeeze in a couple more blogs! It is truly the silly season with people rushing everywhere, spending money they do not have just to impress and overall ending up much unhappier than when they started. I am doing my best to make this year different from the rest. … Continue reading So it wasn’t my last post!
Thank you 2018
In all likelihood, this will be my last post for 2018. It's the crazy season and there won't be time for blogging. I wanted to say "thank you" to my friends, family, colleagues and acquaintances for the year that was 2018. Thank you for the laughter, the joy, sharing each others lives. Thank you for… Continue reading Thank you 2018
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
I have always been a "busy" person. There is always a chore to be done, a project to be completed, some show to see or place to visit. My days get filled up with work, daily flotsam and jetsam and then squeezing in the latest and greatest place to visit or thing to do. There… Continue reading Playing games
Ah the minefield that is a relationship. We note the little danger sign, but man that view is amazing, and (to mix metaphors) it is such arable land. We see so much potential, so much possibility, that we blithely continue. For the really crazy - cue me - we do this in multiples. Hey! Two… Continue reading Minefield
I choose this path
“I didn’t fall into love with you. I walked into love with you, with my eyes wide open, choosing to take every step along the way. I do believe in fate and destiny, but I also believe that we are only fated to do the things we’d choose anyway.” ~ Kiersten White I have whittled… Continue reading I choose this path
My super-power has asserted itself again
My super-power is anxiety, coupled with panic and paranoia. Wonderful combination of emotions and thoughts and just stuff. Meh! I find myself wanting to cower in a corner and hide from the world - instead I am working and not doing a particularly good job. I want to cry and sob and let it all… Continue reading My super-power has asserted itself again
I am dating again. I am finding it interesting, exciting and a bit of a minefield. You see, I am not dating someone new, I am dating my primary partner. The person I spend some time with every single day. (For those who have missed it, I am in multiple relationships (well I try!) and… Continue reading Dating again
