What I learned by writing a letter to myself……

I decided to sit down and write a letter to myself, just to see what it might look like. I've got to a place in my life that I've lived a little, seen a little, screwed up a LOT but that's what life is all about. That's the result of living, isn't it? So looking… Continue reading What I learned by writing a letter to myself……


Broken Hearted

Yesterday I did one of those silly quizzes on Facebook......How many hearts have you broken? Mmmm, it said 121. Now I know I've been around for a while but I can't possibly imagine that I have had 121 men in my life that were ever interested enough for me to break their hearts. If that's… Continue reading Broken Hearted

Stories to tell.

Well it's been an interesting week or two. Emotional highs and lows, some caring and I must say humbling moments. Pain off the charts and a temper to match......the temper I try so hard to keep under wraps and aimed at myself rather than anyone else, but it's there just bubbling under the surface a… Continue reading Stories to tell.

Hopes and Fears

Today in my Facebook memories I stumbled across my blog post with the title 'It's not just sex......'. Mmmmm it was a reminder.

I was having a particularly bad day last week… Continue reading Hopes and Fears

What someone feels is completely different to another and can be at different times also. There are 7 known stages of grieving but they do not… Continue reading Grief, Loss and how to recognize it.


Seasonal changes ……

I am who I am. I make absolutely no apologies for being me. I'm a dreamer, a romantic and a strong believer in fairytales coming true. Deep down, whether we admit it to ourselves or not......most of us believe the same. We all want that person to love and to be loved in return. No… Continue reading Seasonal changes ……



I know I've been unusually quiet since my return from my trip. Lots of different things running through my over packed brain. Some lingering pleasantly, some I'd like to re do over and over again and some I'm working at placing in one of those cupboards in my head.......but damn, sometimes it's hard to shut… Continue reading Trust…..


It’s been a while…..

I'm back!!!!! Dont worry, I won't bore you with too many details. This trip has been an amazing adventure for me in so many ways. Finding myself on the trip after the passing of dad. I wasn't sure just how it would go. Mum still being so raw emotionally and I have to say at… Continue reading It’s been a while…..


It’s ok, I can save myself……..

Well it may come as a shock to some, but I have always been a little outspoken! 😱😂😁 Self confident, yes, arrogant, no. My self confidence has only been for the things I knew I was capable of doing. Over the past 10 years that list has grown in ways I never dreamed possible. You… Continue reading It’s ok, I can save myself……..
