About this time last year, after a long day of work around house, both inside and out, I found myself fast asleep by 10pm on a Saturday night. Only to be woken from my slumber around two hours later to the screams of a child. I could feel them drawing me out of my deep... Continue Reading →
I’ve read that experiencing a miscarriage is the most profound experience of death a person can experience. No other form of death occurs in and must pass through your own body. The journey of moving through and finding this new normal of being a mother without a child is hard, really hard. Not only is... Continue Reading →
Finding significance in the insignificant.
Have you ever had an encounter or experience and it was exactly what you needed for that precise moment in time? I personally believe those are moments sent to me from God, little moments of love; a hug from a father. You might believe they are from someone or something else and that’s ok. I’ve...

The Sexism of Shoes
Recently I became acutely aware of the massive difference in the shoes that women and men are expected to wear by ‘fashion standards’.

Catching some zzzzzz’s
I have suffered from insomnia on and off for about 15 years. It seemed to kick off at the start of my nursing career when I was working varying shifts. It seems to be more linked with an overthinking mind. It really started when I began taking on responsibility- life and death responsibility-. My brain... Continue Reading →
Easy Dinosaur Cake
I've gained a bit of a reputation for doing family and friends special celebration cakes. I've done a few classes and taught myself a few things. I'm no pro, but I really enjoy it and I think I do pretty well. They are very time consuming and costly, so while I love that I can... Continue Reading →
Mandela My Life: The Official Exhibition
In 2003 I went to South Africa for the first time, I volunteered in a home for abandoned babies. Although Australia does have its own horrible racist history, I had never been exposed to the level of racism as when I went to South Africa. Caring for the African children in the home, Black, Coloured... Continue Reading →
This morning I watched the WugulOra Ceremony honouring our first nations people. Then I had some errands to do. I've made some lamingtons. And tonight I'll probably watch the Australia Day concert from the Sydney Opera House. I also thought I'd play some music from Aussie artists so I made a little list (150 or so... Continue Reading →
I haven’t been doing as much writing as I’d like. Things have been quite hectic for me to say the least. Tomorrow marks day 9 since I started my new job. And I’m really loving it. It’s challenging. I’m learning and still have so much to learn. I also already feel appreciated for the skills... Continue Reading →
