    And Then THIS Happened

    Oh if you thought the car breaking down was the worst thing that can happen – think again!!! Just think again! And then cry your little heart out at my recent loss! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooo *sobs uncontrollably* My espresso machine DIED!!!! Do you hear me? IT DIED!!! As in DEAD! Like, really DEAD. Deceased! It’s bereft of life! It has checked out! Defunct! Expired! Perished! Unanimated! Lifeless! My life-giving machine has gone meet its maker to the rubbish dump! I’m mortified! Without the coffee, I can’t do the walking, or the talking, let alone stay awake for the day literally full of beans! Woe is me! hahaha Bastard machine. I can’t complain too…

    This Happened

    So maybe my car isn’t quite like in the photo above, but it’s behaving like it’s dead so the pic can stay! It won’t budge, nobody can start it. It’s been limping along and starting only when it’s in the mood and now it’s given me the big FU and here we are. I’m hoping it can be saved but I’ll have to see what a mechanic says. If it’s going to cost too much to fix, then it’s going to have to go. So, for now, it’s a nice little ornament in the car park, keep your fingers crossed that it actually can be fixed! Not great timing, it’s…

    And the Move is ON!

    Okay. So my mood has improved since the last post. YAY! I had some local therapy of sorts – mum therapy, sister therapy, friend therapy and I have bounced back. Phew! Good news finally – not that I ever doubted this would happen but the timing was impeccable. A unit is available in the next complex, not the complex we originally thought, but the complex on the other side. The best part is it’s managed by the same guy and he’s an all-round top bloke AND we’re still neighbours with Tanja so it’s mega-easy to visit each other. *reminds Tanja there is a swimming pool in our complex*  The timing…

    The Evil That Walks Among Us

    One of my interests is in true crime and at times even I struggle to reconcile my traits as an HSP with my fascination with evil throughout the world. INFJs have a macabre and often dark sense of humour but crime is no laughing matter, especially when the subject matter covers rape, torture, and murder. The crux of my interest lies with the big question – WHY? Like most people, I just can’t come close to understanding why someone would deliberately harm another person or more than one. Naturally, I am full of sympathy for victims of crime. I can empathise with their pain, fear etc. to the best of my…

    Who Decides What is Beautiful?

    As I get older, I am increasingly frustrated with the expected standard of beauty. I think we can all agree that the media has a lot to do with our skewed idea of what we should look like and sadly it brainwashes far too many people. This creates such a vicious cycle. It also creates a lot of angst in those that society deems average or worse. When is this bullshit going to change? I’ve been thinking on and off about this for a while and I’ve got a couple of points I want to make. First Point. Women of a certain age. TBH this could cover women of any…
