Just around the corner

I saw that Mom was online and clicked on ‘video call’, smiling as I waited for her phone camera to connect with mine. I looked at the mirror image of myself in the corner of my phone screen and sighed – my hair was everywhere and I had no makeup on. I haven’t been botheredContinue reading “Just around the corner”

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”

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”

Good memories

March 07, 2017 In an effort not to combust from all the RAGE I’m experiencing – here is a happy moment in my life a like to reflect on from time to time… When I was struggling under the weight of control “Gareth” had over me…on one of the rare afternoons Gareth wasn’t home “watchingContinue reading “Good memories”

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”

Bruno Mars…wuss :)

May 24, 2013 Hey, I had so much fun today. When I woke up, I sang to Alun until he groaned and got ready for work. I took my phone into the shower with me and sang happily to “owl city” while I lathered shampoo into my hair. The day was absolutely stunning and IContinue reading “Bruno Mars…wuss :)”

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”

For you, Jonathan.

January 29, 2011 ** a letter to my ex husband I wrote years and years ago…enjoy ** Hi Jonathan, How are you? Im writing to you on my blog because whenever we have spoken over the last year and a half, we are both too full of emotion to think clearly and calmly. Im alsoContinue reading “For you, Jonathan.”

Bad Dates 3, 4 & 5…

Date 3: A guy about my age with longish, scraggly hair, a t-shirt I suspect was made from hemp and old, worn jeans met me at my favourite park for our date – a walk in the park and maybe drinks after. We’d see how we went. I can’t remember his name, but we’ll goContinue reading “Bad Dates 3, 4 & 5…”
