Measuring Day

I’ve been back to committing to my daily meditation this month, after a few lacklustre months, and feeling like the regular 9-14 minutes of time spent in quiet contemplation, being gently guided by Jeff had actually been benefitting me more than I had realised. I started the “daily trip” on the Calm app with Marty…

Mother’s Day 2022

Aaaaah Mother’s Day. It has been a bit of a mixed bag for me over the past decade, but the last two have really come through with the goods, and all from very simple pleasures. Last year was really amazing and special and ended up being very healing for me. This year, we had a…

Do you know what today is? Today is washing day. After a fantastic five days away at Pizzey’s, we are home, with the kids relaxing with friends, and me being happy it’s a good drying day. It’s the little things, right? And look at me blogging about our holiday straight away! Winning all round! I…

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…
