Good Date #1

I can’t think of Patrick without smiling, you know that? For a friend with benefits, he’s actually one of my favourite memories. Our first ‘date’ was at my Mom’s apartment. I was divorced, broke and had moved in with Mom to save money. She was away that night – going to a concert with herContinue reading “Good Date #1”

Reign in the crazy

Full disclosure, guys – I used to be batsh*t crazy. When my first love broke up with me (we were giving it a 2nd chance in our early 20’s), I wasn’t able to handle it. I couldn’t accept that Matt could just…leave me… So instead of acknowledging it had ended and moving graciously on…I wentContinue reading “Reign in the crazy”

the 3 P’s and a C

April 23, 2019 Hey you, I’m at work and I really love this job. I don’t know if I love it because 1) I really need a job 2) It’s temporary so I’m not getting caught up in making friends/impressing people but I like coming into work every day and time goes by really fast.Continue reading “the 3 P’s and a C”

This is the last time

I found a book of poetry I wrote in my late teens/twenties. One poem really stood out to me and as I read the words, I remember who it was about and how I felt when I wrote it. Heartbroken. Friend-zoned and gutted about it. Here’s my poem – written when I was 27. “ThisContinue reading “This is the last time”

Ultimate Wingman

My friend Troy has been single a long time. Like…a really, REALLY LONNNNNNNGGG time. So, me being me – I had to step in and help the guy. I appointed myself “ultimate wingman” and set up a dating profile for Troy on “Plenty of Fish“. It’s a bit scary how easy it is to beContinue reading “Ultimate Wingman”

slowly getting better…and my trip to Narrogin

October 14, 2013 Hey, It’s been a very busy week and a bit since I last wrote. The last time I wrote, I thought my emotions (mostly coming hard and fast and out of nowhere for no reason at all) and erratic hormones threatened to do me in. Seriously. But I’m okay. Praise God, I’mContinue reading “slowly getting better…and my trip to Narrogin”

Why I love Alun

June 13, 2012 First of all, let me tell you he drives me crazy. He drives me freakin’ nuts! He takes my frayed nerves and joyfully shakes them with all his might at the worst of times. But he always does it with a ‘cheeky chappy’ grin. So I cant stay mad for long. WeContinue reading “Why I love Alun”

These are my favourite days…

April 03, 2012 I wanted to spend time remembering things that make me smile today.Here goes: I remember when I slept at the Ambrose’s house in the room they made just for me. With floral bed covers (Mrs Ambrose gave them to me – they’re in my cupboard crying out to be used again butContinue reading “These are my favourite days…”
