Farewell to my lady plumbing

OK, it’s official, the universe hates me. My lady plumbing is being removed on September 30. Because, you know, I didn’t have enough on my emotional plate. I held it together when the specialist told me, I joked and laughed, but I was teetering on the edge of tears. Not because I’m particularly fond of […]

I want a date, not a fling

I got a funny reaction to my blog yesterday, when I announced I wanted a date. A friend posted on Facebook that I needed “a toy boy fling”, which is entirely the opposite of what I have in mind. I want to talk to a man I don’t know and watch for sparks. I love […]

I don’t want to jinx it, but …

I’ve started sleeping again without chemical assistance. I’m quite startled because it’s been a fairly traumatic week. That should mean hours of late night angst, but no, I’ve been snoozing peacefully until 6am. Please let it last. As for the trauma, well, it’s still haunting me (a little) during my waking hours. But I’m leaning […]

19 reasons my new job rocks

I’m having a bit of a blast in my new job. Here are just a few of the reasons why … 1. As mentioned in a previous blog post, when you press “42” on the drink dispensing machine, a Diet Coke comes out. There’s the meaning of life for you. 2. The junk food machine […]

Looking back in anger

I was supposed to blog about the Emmys after parties today but I can’t because my internet, after finally kicking into life after three weeks, has died again. Farketty fark fark fark. iinet have no acceptable answers for me, other than I should try using some sort of splitter box thing that I’ll have to […]

Second chances

There are moments when I realise the fragility of my new resilience. At my housewarming, a school mum noted that I wasn’t in a good place yet – in light of some of my blog posts – and I disagreed  with her vehemently. No, no, I insisted, I’m good. Really, I’m great. But I could […]

The party lowdown

Ooooooh I felt grim yesterday. I don’t operate well on one hour of sleep … So, was it worth it? Yes, on balance I think it was, despite the scene of devastation that still surrounds me. The fun started on Saturday morning when the “intelligent” lights, stand, LED disco ball and smoke machine arrived. The […]

Some galah

I know I said I wouldn’t blog today but, after 2 hours fitful sleep, I had to get up because some galah had set the timer on my oven to go off at 6.20am. Once I’m awake, I’m awake. The house is a bloody tip after the housewarming, can’t face it. So I thought I’d […]

Naked and alone with 2 women

I did my grocery shopping yesterday sans underwear … Now that I have your attention (come to think of it, the title probably did that anyway, ah well) let me rewind … Before grocery shopping, I went to my friend Mel’s house to get a spray tan for my party. She’s a DIY spray tan […]

I’m not nailing the single mum thing

We had takeaway again last night. BBQ chook and chips. The house is a disaster. I haven’t cleaned it since the move. The dog keeps escaping the barrier I’ve erected in the kitchen and weeing on the carpet. And I feel so guilty because he spends endless hours locked up while I’m at work. I […]
