Just…really cool

I’m temping for the week at the Children’s Hospital, screening any and all guests with Covid questions and asking everyone to sign into the “SafeWA” app. It’s a busy job on the main entrance and in Emergency, but absolutely perfect on one of the wards with hardly any visitors – because then I earn aContinue reading “Just…really cool”

Carving out time for myself

October 16, 2019 My whole life, I feel like I’m caging myself. Watching what I say.Being careful to be soft, quiet and pleasing.Being what everyone needs me to be so much I forget who I actually am.I am so locked into being ‘liked’ that I spend my life – my whole life – playing whatever role isContinue reading “Carving out time for myself”

Broken

October 10, 2019 Yesterday, I sat in a window alcove on one of the busiest streets in the city and cried. I didn’t just cry, by the way – I wailed. I howled. Tears didn’t fall daintily down my cheeks – they poured. I didn’t care. This is me at my lowest point. I have justContinue reading “Broken”

Not a fan of tough love

August 27, 2018 “I’m just giving you tough love because I care” Well. Care enough then, to shut your mouth. And keep it closed. Thanks. As you can see, I’m not a fan of ‘tough love’. I think when you love someone – it shouldn’t hurt. It shouldn’t feel like someone is taking a jackhammerContinue reading “Not a fan of tough love”

I’ll ride with you

April 17, 2019 Hey, So not a lot has happened in my life since I last wrote to you. I suck at resting and I suck at getting anything done because the house is still a mess, my life in general is a mess and I’m tired even though I’ve not been in work for almost 6Continue reading “I’ll ride with you”

Glad to have been there

When I was a kid, the beach was my favourite place to be, my bike was magical and could transport me anywhere in the small town of Nhulunbuy. I grew up in the NT which was basically paradise – a beachside village for just over 1000 local residents. I would spend ALL DAY out onContinue reading “Glad to have been there”

The balance

December 13, 2017 The other side of my messy blogs of late…is that I’m doing great. I love my job. I earn a small fortune every week ($800 – probably not loads to you, but to me, omg I feel like a millionaire) and I’m continuing to lose weight. I love my PT sessions. I loveContinue reading “The balance”

…and back UP they go

December 13, 2017 For goodness sakes. I’m totally fed up. I think I invite drama into my life unwittingly, you know. There I was…as happy as a clam, enjoying my awesome marriage, awesome job (omg I love this job), awesome friends and awesome life… …and then within the space of only a few hours, KirstyContinue reading “…and back UP they go”

Hey

December 12, 2017 Such a simple word but one that I like a lot. “Hey” I used it twice today on people in my life who have really, really hurt me. First, “Kirsty” is back in my life. When I say ‘back’, I actually mean “at the very edges” of it, but there nonetheless. ThisContinue reading “Hey”

Thankful

August 02, 2017 When I’m depressed, friends I love tell me “count your blessings”, “find 3 things you’re thankful for”, “what things are you happy about in your life?” And when I’m in the first few stages/levels of depression – I can do that. So today, here’s what I’m thankful for: A home to comeContinue reading “Thankful”
