I need a project

May 26, 2014

  It’s getting cold. The days are short and I can feel my mood sinking. I hate winter. I grew up where it never really got very cold and there were still plenty of daylight hours, regardless of the season. I try my best every year to just get on with it. Put on a […]

Chicken wisdom

November 17, 2013

  This adrenal fatigue/thyroid  bullshit is like a rollercoaster. It just goes around and around. Unfortunately (for me) a large part of feeling OK revolves around some pretty intensive self care. Early nights, immaculate diet and some easy exercise.  Which would be ace if I had the energy to do these things. But if I […]

Binge Drinking-a cautionary tale

October 30, 2013

        It might surprise you to know that I did my debut ball. I almost didn’t because puffy, white dresses aren’t my thing and I was simply too motherfuckin cool in 1995 to be into most things except grunge music and myself. But a mate and I were both dateless and decided […]

Riptide

July 11, 2013

    I remember one time, when I was about 16,  dancing on a picnic table in on a balmy summers night, in bare feet and short shorts. Then a group of us stripped down to our underwear and ran to the ocean and swam in the milky blackness. It was kind of terrifying and […]

Slipping

March 19, 2013

The year after Tannah was born was the hardest year of my life. PTSD from the birth and PND that I refused to let anyone in on. I spent a year treading water with bricks on my feet. I managed to fool everyone into thinking that I was OK. Only I knew about the sobbing every day […]

Odd One Out

February 7, 2013

    Oh I’ve written this self indulgent wank of a post a few times and deleted it. But I’ve decided to press on.   I have always felt that I have never quite fit in anywhere. I get that I’m a bit odd and mostly I’m OK with that. In fact I quite like who I am and have […]
