There were 4 seasons in one day

This week had forecast to be mid-30 degrees and was ever-so muggy. Yesterday was terrible; I went back to bed at 10.30am after an 8hr sleep and slept for two hours. The rest of the day I spent on the couch with hardly eating a thing. What came over me I’m just putting down to…

Who was there to/when…..?

Good news; we got to settle on our house on the past friday! I was so happy I cried all night and think I may have woken up crying Saturday morning. Call me silly, but I’d rather have a house 100% mine and pay a mortgage then pay $1 p/wk under a license agreement and…

Hoover Damn: Unmasking America

This blog is so sad. How can people treat others like this? Who gave them the right to do so? Why? No-one deserves any treatment like this. Imagine the sicknesses and diseases and disorders that would have been passed down through in-breeding.

Seeing the World in a new light

End to another year

So it’s December 30 and I am starting to look back on the year and thinking about how I now perceive the end of the year and how I will celebrate it. After Christmas and my birthday over the four-day weekend, I can honestly say I am buggered! I am struggling to find my energy…

Christmas cheer, where are you?

Christmas cheer, oh Christmas cheer, where are you!? I am ever so struggling to get into holiday mode, as I don’t actually have set holidays. Why? Because I work casually these days and with everything going on at home it’s hard to find the Christmas Spirit. Yesterday evening I received an email from our Bank Manager…

You don’t need empathy to support a depressed person

Originally posted on karenwriteshere:
When a friend was hospitalized for appendicitis, people flocked to visit him at the hospital. When I was clinically depressed, some who knew it avoided me like the plague. But I completely understand — it’s natural for us to be afraid of the unfamiliar, including unfamiliar illnesses. And when it comes to…
