1 step forward, 2 steps backwards

Conversing with Edward Frankle is like solving riddles, and that is probably what keeps me interested, because who doesn’t like solving puzzles! I woke up today very hungover from a big night of drunk dancing with some gorgeous, strong women at a beach house in Mornington Peninsula to a text from Edward. It was aContinue reading “1 step forward, 2 steps backwards”

I love an emotional challenge!

It only took Edward 2 and a bit year to ask me out for a coffee without using work as a crutch. A few weeks ago, he asked me to invite him for a cuppa, and when I did, he didn’t get back to me for a whole day! Who takes a day to sayContinue reading “I love an emotional challenge!”

His pain struck a chord

Most of the conversation during our coffees centred around him telling me how sorry he was that he was so scruffy, when I was so impeccably dressed, or about how hard his life was, as he was going through a divorce. As expected, I spilled my coffee on him a couple of times, bumped intoContinue reading “His pain struck a chord”

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”

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”
