Catching up with some girls from highschool for an update, one brought me some gorgeous flowers, with a Star of David fashioned out of bamboo and stuck inside by the florist. Are these for Hannukah?

I’ve just spent a couple of days in psych care at the hospital.

Yeah, I was a bit of a risk.

Putting things in place etc.



Yeah, I ate gluten this few days. I lived.

And check out all the plastic cutlery and crockery. Yep, no sharps in PECC. (the flowers are also in a ‘vase’ fashioned from an isowipes container)

Plans from here?


Take care of myself.

More therapy.

Adjust meds.

Oh and figure out where I want to live. Yeah, Rish and I kinda ‘separated’, too.

Just short of 15 years.

To see if that helps.


Careful what you wish for.


I can do this.

Lots of long, head-clearing walks.

Taking in the natural things around me.

The colours.

march2012 082

The perfumes.

march2012 081

The little insects.

They make me smile.

The bright red flower or its wilted friend?

I see the bright flower. With a smiling whisper of “ooh! What’s next?”  .

See the colour :)



I read a lot of blogs.

Some are gorgeously superficial. Pretty, sparkly nail polish, or cupcakes that, while I can’t eat them, look awesome.

Others are deep.

Discussion of emotions, physical and mental pain.

And while I love those people.

I just sometimes can’t read that stuff.

For my own sake.

So I step back. And stick with the pretty flowers for a while.

A day at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney

October 25, 2011

What better way to spend a magnificent Sydney day? Our plan for Saturday was to head to Circular Quay and hop on a ferry to Manly. Maybe have a picnic, some wine… But on our way from Martin Place, where we hopped off the train, we wandered past some old buildings, and found ourselves at […]

Hello, Spring!

August 31, 2011

Out of winter already, blossoms are blooming, days getting longer and a little warmer, freckles appearing on my arms. Spring is here and I’m bouncy and motivated. Motivated to get to the gym each day. To walk in the fresh air to and from work. To eat more fruit. To work towards getting back under […]

We had a breakfast at work today for a staff member who has moved to another site. In the trying to remember everything that morning, I forgot lunch. So I wandered down to near the station and got these yummy sushi rolls for $2.90 each at Refresh. Good to see they’re seriously looking at the […]
