I'm Still Here….

Yes, i am still alive. Stop panicking and no need to send in the emergency services. I am still alive and very much still here. Just like everyone else I know, currently very busy.

Wow, where does over a month go? Just noticed my last post was mid February. Thanks to those that have stopped by, those that have missed me and hopefully those that are still there. (You are still there right??)

It's been a crazy time professionally and personally. With lots happening and lots to zap my energy. I sit here now thinking of all the things I could be doing and should be doing but it feels right to just get my thoughts down. 

The strain of trying to be everything to everyone is taking its toll. Girlfriend, Manager, Sister, Daughter, Cook, Friend…….. It's hectic and wonderful and I am grateful to have so many people in my life, but I feel like I'm missing me. Just who am I to me? And the eternal soul search to find time to be me.

Like many of my fellow bloggers (yes I still count myself as one) it is sometimes hard to remember why people stop by to read my blog and that over sharing can be as bad as not posting.

I think have done enough apologising for lack of posts and hope that everyone understands that at times things in life don't always go according to plan. 

So just to say I am here, I am ok and will get back to posting as I can.

My advice - Take Care of Yourself first or you will be no use to anyone!

Thoughts and Feelings

Hi all,

It's such a great feeling to know that I have a place to to put my thoughts. Whether anyone reads them, or takes them on board, isn't really the point. It's about a safe place to download and share. The good, the bad, the exciting and the ugly.

While those close to me will know that the last 12 months have been tough and the last 6 more so, others will probably not have noticed a change in the business as usual version of me.  (aside from a lack of posting anything). Up until recently, I prided myself on that. On projecting that veneer to the world that everything is ok. But honestly inside I am sad. And it made me realise that we put on this veneer, this mask as if being the real version of ourselves would not be liked and accepted. That people would shun us and think less of us for showing our really feelings and our real lives.

In this day of social media and the desire to share the best bits of our lives with everyone (those we know and those we don't), have w…

Crushing on....

Do you ever get so obsessed with something that it's all you can think about? For an example a song, a dress, a culture or a food. I do. A lot. So I thought to help my obsession or to maybe even get me over my current obsessions I thought I would share them.

Food - Avocado and Feta Mash. Simple and oh so tasty. Just mash an avocado together with crumbled feta  Serve on toast, with tortilla chips, as a dish with poached eggs. Almost anywhere. Try adding extras like lemon juice, chopped tomatoes or fresh herbs. If you are in Melbourne head to Moulin Noir in Port Melbourne who do a mean version.Movie - So I am going to cheat here and go with a franchise of AMAZING movies. Fast & The Furious. Absolutely obsessed with these. and there is a new one out, Fast & Furious 6. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker,  fast cars and non stop action. Do I need to say more? Looking forward to seeing it this weekSong - Oh so hard to pick one but going with my movie theme it would have to be We Own It by 2…
