• Ten years from now

    I was at an informal body corporate meeting for my apartment complex yesterday afternoon and we were discussing a report we’re planning to have done to forecast major expenditure over the next 10-15 years.

    And yes, that sentence bored me to death as well. What surprised me however, was the reaction of a few people around the table.

  • My own witching hour

    The witching hour is – of course – the hours between midnight and 2am, when it’s said that witches, demons and ghosts are most likely to appear.

    My own witching hour is – naturally – quite different.

  • Wordless Wednesday: On the market

    So… in case you’ve been hiding under a rock, or are new to my blog, you won’t know that I’m selling my apartment.

    I caught up with a friend from my old life on the weekend. I’ve seen Mel once or twice since I made my seachange in late 2012, but also saw her just before I left Brisbane for Hervey Bay.

    I was in the midst of massive changes at the time. I’d finished full time work and taken a redundancy. I put my place on the market and sold it. Bought a new place and was about to move. All within a month.

    I was keen for the fresh start and excited, though nervous, about what came next.

    I’ve talked here often of my insomnia. But no matter how tired I’ve been I can usually drag myself out of bed in the morning because the black fizzy goodness that is Vanilla Diet Coke awaited me on the other side of slumber.

    I’m not a tea or coffee drinker (and dislike hot drinks in general) so diet coke in various forms has been my go-to morning drink for decades.

    I gave it up for about 3mths back in 2011, and have attempted to do so again and again since.

    I was babysitting Pickle, my favourite 4yr old recently. I’ve mentioned before that I’m a sucker at bedtime… always extending the agreed 2 books into 3 or 4 and perhaps a made-up story or two.

    I’d already heard about that week’s daycare incident. My friend had been unhappy at the events but mentioned she had to try not to laugh when Pickle went into detail. So I should have been prepared….
