The time I almost hit a homeless woman

I know, shocking hey? But yep, it really did happen…or almost did. There I was, walking down Murray Street and I was on the phone to Dad, just chatting away about our days, maybe we were planning to meet up for dinner that night? No idea. I just know Dad was on the phone whenContinue reading “The time I almost hit a homeless woman”

These are a few of my favourite things

I’ve cried EVERY SINGLE DAY since my Dad passed away and I can’t keep blogging about my grief. Although I feel it every day – a heavy rock on my heart, reminding me my Dad is GONE and I will NEVER see his lovely face again…I need to at least try to write about somethingContinue reading “These are a few of my favourite things”

Things I know about my Dad

Originally, I was going to call this “things I remember about Dad” but it’s too soon. He’s not ‘a memory’, he’s my Dad. He’ll forever be alive and well in my heart. So here’s what I know about him: Dad loved beer. A lot. Dad also loved talking for hours about nothing and everything. HeContinue reading “Things I know about my Dad”

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”

Angels called Albert

March 22, 2019 I think they are everywhere, you know…Angels. I think because they look just like regular people, we walk past them in the street, brush past them on buses and trains, maybe return their smiles in shopping centres or at parks, thank them when they hold the door open for us or letContinue reading “Angels called Albert”

An imperfect Christian

August 23, 2018 My friend Jack said to me the other day that he’s amused with me calling myself a Christian because I’m one of the cheekiest people he knows. “You’re not very religious, Janet” I know. So I thought I’d address that in today’s blog. Lucky you, eh? I am in Christian in theContinue reading “An imperfect Christian”

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”

Doing great

December 20, 2017 I get scared to say it, you know. I get scared to say “Actually, I’m doing great” because I feel like ‘life’ will overhear me and think to itself “is that right?” and give me a terrible illness or put me through a really hard time just to prove me wrong. It’sContinue reading “Doing great”

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”

Waiting

November 21, 2017 I feel like that’s what I’m doing lately – waiting. For what, I don’t know. Something good, I hope. Well – God willing – THIS FRIDAY, Alun and I get the keys to our new home. This Friday – we’ll be moving!!! God provided a new job for me only ONE DAYContinue reading “Waiting”
