Really, I am the luckiest woman ever, seeing as my village is made up of all these lovely, thoughtful, kind people. Thank you all, for alwaysContinue reading “People want to wine’o’clocks with me, and I just want to run!”

What’s in a name?
Conforming to social norms always makes me claustrophobic and makes me feel like I am a potato sitting in a sack with all the other potatoes! Don’t get me wrong, I love potatoes and I feel very secure in the knowledge that all potatoes offer the same carby satisfaction when I need a potato fix!Continue reading “What’s in a name?”
My love affair with sunshine
COVID19 is a terrible virus that has brought the world down on its knees, but in some ways, it has changed our lives for the better. I have so much more free time now than I ever did in my whole adult life because there are so many non-essentials that I just cannot do anymore.Continue reading “My love affair with sunshine”
The dishwasher – a symbol of my failed marriage
Every time I stack the dishwasher, I am reminded of the first meeting I had with my (then) husband, when I told him I wanted out. I sat across the table from him in a coffee shop, as I couldn’t bring myself to have that discussion at home. We discussed the impending end of ourContinue reading “The dishwasher – a symbol of my failed marriage”
Mindfulness is so underrated!
I have a restless mind and am always doing something. My friends and family call me a photon, implying I do not have stationary mass. Whilst an overstatement, I do feel I need to learn to be one with myself without the need to be actively engaged in something physical all the time. I started yogaContinue reading “Mindfulness is so underrated!”
Chris – The photographer who is a fan of women and doesn’t use toilet paper!
I met Chris for a coffee at a little bakery in Camberwell. Camberwell is a busy little suburb close to the Melbourne CBD and is known for its cafes and the Sunday market. The Sunday market holds great prospects for a plant enthusiast like me, and the warm jam donuts served there are to die for. The key isContinue reading “Chris – The photographer who is a fan of women and doesn’t use toilet paper!”
Girlfriends that call you out on your shit and hold you up through the darkness
I have a bunch of awesome friends who have held me up through the worst time of my life. They call me out on my bullshit, they tell me when I am being unrealistic, shoot down my pointless dreams. But they built me up, they held me tight through the dark days, they listen toContinue reading “Girlfriends that call you out on your shit and hold you up through the darkness”
7.6b people on planet earth and I could not have one of them just hold me
I had been lonesome for years, but all the noise and chaos of having to work through a breaking marriage never afforded me the time to feel the loneliness. Now here I was, being my own person, I could be who I wanted to be, do what I wanted to do, and yet all IContinue reading “7.6b people on planet earth and I could not have one of them just hold me”
2020, the year we lost time, I found myself
Running is great! I shed 15 kilos and a husband! I walked/ran 3.3 million steps last year. First, I ran to get away from my pain, then I ran to feel the pain, then I ran to get a hit of that endorphin release! Running is like a state of trance, one can move withContinue reading “2020, the year we lost time, I found myself”
