I Want To Be Like My Kid

20th June 2018

It’s been an interesting couple of days in the not so frosty North. I wanted to write a letter to Neil about our fifth wedding anniversary, about how one day we got married and the next day Isla was nearly four and having her first dance recital. That’s exactly what happened. I was heavily pregnant for our first wedding anniversary.   We went to the zoo, I forgot my three gallons of ice-tea, and I actually ended up in the…

Listen To Me Anyway

12th June 2018

A few months ago, I was on a self-care kick. I bought three mindfulness magazines made from recycled paper, and a candle that smells of books. This was it.  I was going to read through the magazines with the candle going.  I was going to learn how to relax, and maybe even get some sleep. And yet. The magazines sit unread in various corners and different piles.  The candle is still sealed. I’m still not sleeping, but that’s OK.  I’ve…

‘You know how new hair grows in under old hair?’  I said to Neil through the bathroom wall. ‘Yeah?’ ‘Well, all my new hair is gray,’ I said. Before we headed off on our most recent road trip, I spent some time looking at myself in the mirror. I figured out some things.  I should probably drink more water. I may start wearing some make up, all the time.  But not really. Ah’m no bad, as they say over here.…

Not Cool For Cats

9th May 2018

Isla’s at school and my coffee is half finished already.  I want to say there’s a balmy breeze outside.  But it’s just a breeze.  Or fresh.  Or a great big wind. You’d be forgiven for thinking it’s October.  And I can’t believe it’s May. Today, I’m writing these words on the giant desk-top I like to call Truman Bubbles. If you’ve been hanging with me a while you may remember Coffee Gate and then Coffee Gate 2.  The times my…
