November 04, 2019 I don’t mean that romantically, by the way. I really believe everyone has 1 or more of these love languages: Words: being spoken to, written to lovingly – the opposite – being talked to harshly, told off, yelled at or written to in harsh words can break your heart Touch: Being held,Continue reading “Speak to me in the language of 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”

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”

Knock knock

January 30, 2017 Icame home from work today and felt exhausted. Every hour at work felt like it took 3 hours to pass. I had to plaster on a brave face and greet everyone with a bright smile. I went to the bathroom 3 times during my shift at work; shutting the cubicle door behindContinue reading “Knock knock”

Just right

July 22, 2013 Sometimes new friends can be surprising in that they know what we need more than old friends do. As was the case on Saturday morning with my new friend, Roz. Roz is someone I met on assignment at the really lovely place I used to work by the Boat Harbour in SouthContinue reading “Just right”

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 :)”
