International Women’s Day to me is celebrating being a woman in today’s world and acknowledging women in achieving what they set out to do despite the limitations which still exist for us in this day and age. It’s about strengthening and empowering each other to be the best woman we can be. It’s giving each other encouragement to keep on trudging in the direction we want to go because we are cheering each other on.
Family is hard. No. Not just hard. Near damn impossible sometimes. But we love them. Don’t we? I mean, we put up with their shit and overlook things just because they’re family, and family should love unconditionally. Right? We decide that peace is more important than the truth at times just so no one is … Continue reading EXPOSED
It is a very exciting time for me right now! My book has been published, I’ve received my complimentary copies, have been working on promoting it, and am now considering a book tour. My official book launch has been booked and paid for and all the anticipation of how it will all pan out is … Continue reading EXCITING TIMES!
On Friday, I was driving my youngest to school, when out of nowhere he asks me, “Mum, where did kick the bucket come from?” “What?” came my surprised reply. “Kick the bucket. It sounds stupid, but where did it come from?” the inquisitive child queried further. “Well, that’s a very good question. I don’t know. … Continue reading Watch Out For The Bucket!
Last night, I sat down and wrote a fantastic blog. Then I woke up this morning and realised it was Valentine’s Day. I decided that I would write a different one for such an occasion. Normally, I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. None of my partners in the past have ever shown any inkling of being … Continue reading Saints Loving Day
It was a stinking hot day in the Australian outback this day, way out near Whoop Whoop somewhere. Nothing was moving. Not even the ants. The air was thick and dry and walking outside felt like suffocation. Andy sat inside the homestead, just watching nothing out the window. No breeze. Not a whisper stirred in … Continue reading BLOWIE
Take Two. Following on from my last blog “The Unanswered Breakdown”, there is more to the tale. After the car was “fixed” and my partner drove it out of the mechanic’s and home. We were both relieved to have the car home, finally in working order. My partner pressed the button for the driver’s side … Continue reading BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
A couple of blogs ago, I talked about when technology break downs. This time it’s cars. Sigh. Just like technology, it’s a headache when it happens. You never know how much it’s going to cost to fix your car because all businesses charge differently for the same service and parts. If the problem isn’t known, … Continue reading THE UNANSWERED BREAK DOWN
Quotes can be quite inspiring at times. However, some which I see go around Facebook, can be rather depressing and don’t tend do anything except reinforce the depression and keep you down in the pits of your darkness. Those ones are more like sentences, or a statement, than a quote as they only look at … Continue reading INSPIRAMAIL
As a writer, ideas come to me at any time, anywhere. This particular one which I am sharing with you today, is a nonsensical poem which came to me in my lunch break one day at work in 2014. I had been thinking about how I mucked around with my youngest son, at bed time, … Continue reading When Tales Collide
