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! It’s a perfect Sunday and I am sitting at my local café, waiting for my breakfast to arrive.Continue reading “In and out of my own life”

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.

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!”

What do I need to feel whole?

Swing on swings with my kids Lay down on the decking and imagine shapes of clouds as they morph from a horse into a sea dragon into a bowl of spaghetti in the blue sauce ⛅️ Run in the rain 🏃🏽‍♀️ If I had to be honest I think I need to be loved andContinue reading “What do I need to feel whole?”

People want to wine’o’clocks with me, and I just want to run!

I am blessed to have so many lovely friends, that I always have someone or the other checking on me to see how I am going through this Iso! Really, I am the luckiest woman ever, seeing as my village is made up of all these lovely, thoughtful, kind people.
