• The dreaded D word

    Friday, October 24, 2014 Permalink

    Two weeks before my father passed away his doctor took us aside to render his verdict. And to give us some options. Dad had been in hospital for nearly a month by then. Initially for something, then something else. It really all boiled down to the sudden discovery his body was riddled with cancer – exacerbated by drugs he was taking following his heart transplant almost 11 years earlier.

    mumDon’t let that sweet innocent face fool you… this woman is a feisty one. Outwardly… a church-going, crossword-loving 70 year old. But – in reality – she’s a closet party animal.

  • My life that was

    Friday, October 17, 2014 Permalink

    I’ve had 2 recurring dreams for much of the last two decades (about losing teeth and giant contact lenses). A third was added several years ago (missing the bus / occasionally the train). However I’ve been regularly having a variation on a dream which is becoming pesky in its stubbornness.

    Essentially this dream is about my old life. More specifically – my old working life. 

  • Three times a bridesmaid…

    Tuesday, October 7, 2014 Permalink

    Over recent months – with my school reunion looming – a LOT of old photographs have been shared. Fortunately I don’t mind a laugh so I haven’t been too worried. (Scary hairstyles aside!)

    The timing also coincided with my brother and sister-in-law’s 25th wedding anniversary which means I’ve been reminded of ALL of my outings as a bridesmaid – firstly for my brother and sister-in-law and twice for school friends.

    I should mention all of my bridesmaiding* took place back in the 1990s, which explains the dresses and perms!

  • Being all judgy judgy

    I have a confession. Yes… another. But I suspect I’m not alone in this one although it may sadly see me fall in your estimation a little. Umm… again.

    I’m *ahem* prone to be a bit judgemental sometimes. And not in a ‘that person is a psychopath and best be avoided’ way.

  • Centre parts: naff or not?

    You know I like to tackle the hard questions here on my blog. And I share insightful analyses into important and topical issues. Like world peace and stuff.

    And by stuff, I mean hairstyles. Or more specifically ‘where one parts their hair’.
