I woke up to this, this morning...

WhatsApp-Image-2021-03-28-at-06.28.57
It was before dawn, I passed my love and a bouncing LiLi (it has to be said like this) on my way back from the loo. We climbed back into bed with two Jerk Russells between us and a moody Luna (who no-one understands at the moment) gruffling around trying to find herself, I guess! My love falls back asleep and the geriatric Moni tells me her tu...

Compartments in my heart

WhatsApp-Image-2021-03-24-at-17.52.04
I've come to realise I can be happy for you and sad for me all at the same time. Does your heart do that too? Have compartments to it? I'm happy today because my love is hanging out with her daughter. I'm sad for me because it's cold and grey and the day seems long. Its such a conundrum isn't it. Feeling I mean! I call days like this 'grey sweater ...

Say something, I'm giving up you ...

Screen-Shot-2021-03-23-at-11.23.31-PM
It's the saddest song. A week before I left my ex I sent it to him and his response was 'you and your songs'. The other day I was driving and I flipped to a playlist and this song came up. I pulled over to listen to the words - I'm a songs with words kinda person (also dancing in the kitchen, pick-me-up kinda music person) and a wave of sadness cam...

Alex. I'm here.

"People who dream when they sleep at night know of a special kind of happiness which the world of the day holds not," Are you nervous? You're talking very fast. Of course, I answer. And we drive into the sunrise. My mind and mouth running stories and Skye yawning off nausea. We looked at Pinterest boards for decorating ideas, discuss outrageous co-...

Love is love

F5C91597-201E-4F7B-B482-D061ABA5738E
‚ÄčIt's 3:15 on a Thursday morning. I can't sleep because I'm anxious. The love of my life is having a procedure tomorrow and I'm terrified that something will go wrong. It won't. The odds are stacked against that but lets not bring common sense to a 3 am rambling! The seasons are changing - I see swallows swarming to make their way back 'home' and s...

The bully you live with...

IMG_0178 Atticus Poetry

Today seems like a good day to talk about anxiety - starving off a panic attack isn't for the faint-hearted.

Surea and I were sitting having breakfast at my dining room table, it was a Sunday morning, all my animals were happy and healthy, the day was beautiful, I was in my favourite place - my home - and one of my best friends was with me, there was nothing to be obviously anxious about.

Between feeling and not feeling

C8447A8C-CD33-49EF-99FA-2554BC2B3751 At home in my heart

The longer I live the harder it is to discern between the stronger emotions. They all spill into each other where they begin. The longer I go, though, the more I can tell between not feeling and feeling. For this is all that seems to matter.

You can't give people what they want

5EAF4811-FDF1-4BF1-AB8C-4D6A60AE5CBF Huffy's Post

You can't give people what they want but you can give them something else. You can give them understanding - of yourself - there's truth and connection there and, as women, we need to more honest with ourselves and our loves, everything depends on that.

Believe in yourself, princess

D01C015B-CD53-4318-8E8C-1A506538ADBA When we were young...

I don't imagine my princesses in the same way as others do, either kissing their husband in marital perfection or the cynical version where they are drunk in the kitchen, living out their happily ever after in a haze of poor decisions.
