In and out of my own life

It is 2022, Covid has evolved, I think I have too! It’s a muggy summer day here in the leafy suburb of Mount Waverley, my fridge is empty, as the kids are at their dad’s this weekend!

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!

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!”

The thoughts in my head are just as tumultuous as the storm unfolding out there!

Being free, and feeling free are two different things. I think of this today as I lay in bed, watching a feral storm brew outside, feeling so constricted in my own skin! This holiday period was the most challenging time of the year, and while the rest of Victoria enjoyed restrictions free holidays, I wasContinue reading “The thoughts in my head are just as tumultuous as the storm unfolding out there!”
