Life and Lemons

Two and a half years ago, I wrote this blog post about when life gives you lemons. Original, I know. I was having a particularly rough time with back problems, and a stressful trip to Rockhampton on the horizon, and I remember wanting to write a more uplifting post, but that one got published instead….

Falling slowly

The movie Once has been on my radar for some time now, and I finally had the opportunity to watch it the other night. I don’t like watching movies on my own, so I generally wait until someone can join me. Funny how I can watch TV shows endlessly no problem (hello Ted Lasso), but…

Red flags

My friend sent me this little meme today, and I wrote back something like: I think it’s okay to pop in to a carnival and go for a ride, rather than give it a miss out of fear. Just as long as you don’t stay too long and become one of the carnies. It’s hard…

What a lady, what a life

Today, (almost all) my family and I farewelled one of the greats. Nan passed away last Wednesday, but because of Covid, we could only have a small service including 20 immediate family and a close friend or two. I was so proud of my mum for delivering a beautiful eulogy. I can’t imagine how hard…

You should be 40

I really wanted to commemorate Frith’s 40th on Wednesday. If he were still here, the party would have been epic, probably lasting a full weekend. The thing is, I have no idea where we would have even been living – which state, which city or country town? So it’s hard to imagine what our lives…

A time to share

I’m sitting at my shiny new dining room table (well fb marketplace new, and new to me) with a hot cross bun and a coffee, enjoying the cool change that has FINALLY come, listening to Chance scraping through Lego, kindly directing Darby to find certain pieces for their latest creation, and listening to Quinn and…

Hope

I hope I can get some stuff done today. I hope that this feeling of restlessness inside of me is appeased by something. It’s another rainy day here in Brisbane. I’m at home with Julius and we have no plans to go anywhere. I have a dozen things I could be doing, a handful of…

I am here…

I love that song by P!nk. It’s kind of my jam. I turn it right up if I’m at home on my own sometimes. It’s also a really good rate of beats per minute for doing squats to. That’s my PSA for today. You’re welcome. May we pretend that it hasn’t been nearly three weeks…
