about-me-image
I'm mum, messy, moody and manic. A worried writer, carefree cook. Retired flautist and teacher of beautiful young flute players. I buried myself in life and love, babies and busyness, until grief, exhaustion and broken dreams cracked me open like a newly hatched chick. So here I am, piecing my middle-aged butt back together while licking gunk off my fledgling wings and learning to fly again. Welcome to my world.

Things I Learned When Travelling

None-the-less, while sitting bored witless at one of the most boring airports gracing this fine earth, I felt inspired to share some hard-earned wisdom.

I’m Back!

I have consulted the technology fairies and the pixie dust has been waived, the credit card swiped, and I'm back in the land of the cyber living. Phew! I'm also in the land of man flu so nothing of any significance will be gracing my page for a day or two, but I just wanted to say don't give up on me. There are good things to come this year. Really good things. I can feel it in my waters!

Roll on 2019

For me - I feel good about 2019. I choose to believe the worst of my grief and issues are behind me and my journey forward is now much closer to everyone else - ie I'm sure I won't get everything right but I'll try not to make a royal fuck up every time a little snag comes my way. I'm calling resolutions 'goals' this year.

Another New Ending

The past two years have shown that no matter the depths I sink to, I claw my way out. And as far as mental health recovery goes, I'm a long way along the path now.

Merry Manic Monday

It's Christmas Eve. All the food preparation is done. The leaves swept up outside. The tree is decorated, santa hats unpacked and cheesy tunes uploaded to my playlist.

Please Like Me!

In order to successfully publish my memoir next year (hopefully next year) I need to have people to tell about it. So in a desperate and shameless act of self promotion, I've created an author page on Facebook and I'd be very chuffed if you liked it.
