BLUE MOON PART 2

So where did I leave off from last time? Ah yes! I was in a mental cesspool of sadness. My cup runneth over, my storm not yet passed, I had been driven to my knees by the stresses of life. To recap, Paul had been to hospital getting his antibiotic fix via a central lineContinue reading “BLUE MOON PART 2”

You’ve Got A Friend

Recently, one of Paul’s crew members went and had another baby. Baby no. 3 and a girl nonetheless. Of course, Paul and I having 2 girls whom are now 8 and 10 were growing up fast, it was an opportunity to go a little…well…baby clothes shopping crazy. So I mustered up a couple of theContinue reading “You’ve Got A Friend”

High Hopes

I didn’t think I was going the end the year writing about the year that was, but here I am. Writer’s block is a thing. I don’t know how many attempts I have made to recap a shitty year, probably because I don’t really want to relive it. So as I sit here on DecemberContinue reading “High Hopes”

Somebody Get Me A Doctor Part 2

I sat in the car and waited. They weren’t letting me in to be with Paul. He was in isolation the moment he was brought into Emergency. So I sat and sang along to the radio at 8 o’clock in the night, trying to calm my nerves and hit those high notes without scaring pedestriansContinue reading “Somebody Get Me A Doctor Part 2”

Somebody Get Me A Doctor Part 1

Have you ever laid in a hospital bed and listened to the chatter of the nurses? Its particularly interesting, especially if your room is right by the nurses station. As I sat by Paul’s bed, in a short space of time, I learnt that Amanda needs to swap shifts with someone because tomorrow afternoon, sheContinue reading “Somebody Get Me A Doctor Part 1”

Law and Order

Nobody speaks, everyone is waiting for the judge to finish reading the litany of information from a thick white folder. Every now and again you would hear the turning of a page. IsContinue reading “Law and Order”

Shake a Leg

I always thought Paul should have been a Police Officer. Those that know the old Paul well should be laughing hysterically at that admission. But my husband was a backseat driver and wouldn’t hesitate to let me know if I was going even a single kilometre over the speed limit. It got worse as heContinue reading “Shake a Leg”

Feeding the Frustration

Barbecues were our thing on the weekend. Just about every Saturday or Sunday Paul and I were entertaining family or friends, sometimes both together. A case of beer, steaks sizzling on the barbecue in the backyard and I’m inside preparing an array of side dishes and salad. Lot’s of people have their signature dishes andContinue reading “Feeding the Frustration”

Raising Resilience- Part 1

“Raising children is the easiest thing in the world.” – No one, EVER. My girls are my world but they are also the reason why an entire bottle of wine is better than just a glass. They are the reason for yet another grey hair on my head and why my blood pressure is moreContinue reading “Raising Resilience- Part 1”
