    Starting a New Chapter

    Things have to change. I WANT things to change. It’s time to grab the bull by the horns and make the changes I want and I am about to do something really positive in the new year. I’m going back to studying. Of the different jobs I’ve had throughout my life, the only job I’ve had that suited my personality was working as a mortician and funeral assistant. I loved doing that work because it allowed me to care for someone’s loved one and make that whole process a little more gentle on the family and friends of the deceased. My caring nature also made it easy to help people…

    An Unexpected Hiatus

    In case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve been AWOL for a few months. I don’t want to go into detail about the situation just now but again I have been trying to deal with something from my past. A wrong that had been done to me a long, LONG time ago caused me untold emotional issues.  I apologise for the vagueness of this post. I tried to reach out to the person involved to try and put this to rest so I could move on with my life and start afresh after all these years but this person wouldn’t help me with any resolution. I really hope this won’t continue to impact…

    Where the Grass is Greener

    The new abode comes with a newly installed, low maintenance garden. Sounds like a grand idea, except for the kitschy pretend grass. It will do though, easy maintenance appeals to my lazy side, even if it is a little on the cheap and cheesy side. What I take exception to is the fact that I need to weed the stuff!!!! WHAT?!?! It’s only clover sneaking through which isn’t ugly but it worries me what else will find its way here at some point. Clover extracted and as I gazed at the “lawn” I decided it also needed a tidy up. As a seasoned gardener, lawn aficionado, green keeper….okay, as a…

    And on the 50th Day, she made coffee!

    Behold!!! Coffee has once again graced my life and I can function as the best introvert I can possibly be! And I am drinking and drinking, and drinking – I can’t get enough. As you see my new little darling on the left is supplying me with my caffeine fix daily, well, perhaps hourly. I haven’t given up on tea, I have tea time during the day and night, and coffees in the middle. You may wonder how all this caffeine will affect me? Not much tbh, I’m one of those lucky ones who doesn’t end up wired from drinking it all day. I do get an energy boost with…

    My Least Favourite Place

    Last Friday night while I was trying to sleep, some of the nastiest abdominal cramps hit me, seemingly out of nowhere and continued into the next day. Had I eaten anything that could cause this? No. I did wonder if it was the two beers I’d had the night before but that was ruled out eventually. They continued into Sunday and with no relief in sight, like Miss Polly who was concerned for her sick dolly, I called for the doctor. Was it appendicitis? That’s what we first thought. No. He thought it may be related to my gallbladder or liver so suggested I head to A&E and get blood…
