Some things stay the same…

I have so much to tell you and I’m so emotional about it so I’m not sure if it will come out right. I’m so angry, frustrated and upset that I just want to scream into a pillow for an hour. Have you ever felt like that? Bear with me. I’ll get there eventually…I justContinue reading “Some things stay the same…”

I’m walking away

So today, I need to come up with a final decision for my boss. Here’s what’s been going on in the last few days: I’ve posted on Facebook about my struggle to decide and beloved friends have weighed in – albeit very gently – on it. Some are for staying, some are for leaving. Great.Continue reading “I’m walking away”

What would Dad say?

Well. It could go one of 2 ways, really. Whenever I came to Dad for advice, he’d either be compassionate and wise with some really good advice, or get really angry/annoyed at what I was asking about (maybe it was in the way I asked?) and would give me very sarcastic, hurtful advice…and possibly aContinue reading “What would Dad say?”

Decisions, Decisions

I have a longggg history of being hired and fired for many, MANY jobs. I have pretty much worked in every industry and field in the whole of Perth in offices in almost every suburb over the last 15 years. I can count on one hand the jobs I’ve enjoyed, they are that few andContinue reading “Decisions, Decisions”

Life in the world of Janet #4695

Hey, I’m temping at the Children’s Hospital as a “Covid Screener”. I get stationed at one of the many entry points and I have to ask any and all visitors to “please sign in using the SafeWA App” and if they’ve got any illnesses or have been “over East” in the last week or so.Continue reading “Life in the world of Janet #4695”

Doing something new

August 19, 2017 “Joyce” at work is the “EO” (executive officer) and I can tell her job means the world to her because I looked on her hand and there wasn’t a wedding ring. It was a huge assumption to make “You’re not married – so your job is everything to you” – but itContinue reading “Doing something new”

Renew my mind

May 30, 2017 I read my Bible a lot. Sometimes more than others. Sometimes just one verse a day…but still, it’s there in my heart. God’s word. Sometimes it makes a lot of sense and other times, I wonder what on earth God meant. Like the phrase David quoted in many Psalms “renew my mind”Continue reading “Renew my mind”

Missing a baddie

Isn’t friendship an odd thing? We pick someone we like, if they like us back, we become friends. We connect on something we mutually like and that’s it…friends. We start hanging out and ‘doing stuff’ together. I’m someone who takes Friendship very seriously. When I like someone, I am 100% your biggest fan and I’llContinue reading “Missing a baddie”

Between the lines

My memoir is a careful tightrope balance between speaking my truth and protecting those I love…or in all honesty – trying not to be bollocked by my parents for telling the world their secrets. So I won’t write about my Dad being a raging alcoholic or my Mom buying, selling, growing and smoking marijuana allContinue reading “Between the lines”

Guess who got hired today?

Meeeeeeee 🙂 I witnessed a lovely, friendly, comfortable office atmosphere when I sat in a red chair, waiting to be shown into the interview for this new job. I interviewed for the Admin position with 4 other girls yesterday – and 2 hours after I’d left the interview, I got offered the role. Look atContinue reading “Guess who got hired today?”
