Monday, 11 January 2021


Greetings, groovers and shakers! I trust you are well on this most marvelous of Mondays.

It's time for my rather splendid announcement. Brace yourself for a stunning revelation of epic and monumental proportions!!!! Or something...

Drum roll, please! 

Ok, so you have to imagine the drum roll. Got it? Good. 

My announcement is....

I have been officially offered a casual library job AND, I commence on Tuesday, January 12 for induction and training! 

If you are reading this on Monday Jan 11 that means tomorrow! YAY!!!! 




I'm scited. That's totally a word. It means scared and excited all at the same time. Mostly excited. But kinda sorta scared. 

I looked up words that mean nervous excitement and there are many. Such as:

  • Agitation
  • Antsiness
  • Clamour
  • Flurry 
  • Fluster
  • Perplexity
  • Tizzy
  • Transience
  • Tumult

I really thought flurry meant something else. A maccas sundae, maybe? Um, no. That's a McFlurry. My mistake. Ahem. 

Another interesting tidbit (speaking of great words...) is another word for nervous is the term screaming meemies.  

I thought a screaming meemie was something like this: 

Since we are making announcements I should also declare that I purchased a dress with POCKETS. Now that truly is a big statement. Almost bigger than the job thing. Well, do you know how a rare an occurrence it is to find such a thing?! It deserves a drum roll AND a trumpet call. Again, your imagination is key here. 

In other news, we were thinking of getting away for a few days next week, but you know, there's this pesky little global pandemic thing. Sigh. We shall see what happens. We have not been away since 2016. This is not ideal, but what can you do. 

I've completed a tremendous amount of paperwork in order to commence this casual position. I'm starting to understand why people never leave council or government jobs. There's so much red tape!

On Saturday, I went with Mickey Blue Eyes to check out where the library branch is. It's right near a favourite old cake shop I haven't been to in DECADES. We had a pleasant little stroll down memory lane recalling the time we got sausage rolls and I accidentally squirted one of those little squeezey tomato sauce sachets all over my front. As we were dressed up and on our way somewhere (can't recall where), it was most inconvenient. Thinking about it now is curious because I'm not even particularly keen on ingesting  tomato sauce let alone wearing it.  Weird.

Oh yes, there's also an op shop in the same street. Could be dangerous. Or delightful! Cakies and books FTW!

Anyway, wish me luck! I may need it. As we were heading back to the carpark a black cat sauntered directly across our path. Good thing I'm not superstitious. Not AT ALL.  Nope.  No way.  Not me. Well, not really. Gulp. Shudder. 

See you on the flipside! 

Until next time,


PS. On Sunday we were in a different carpark and another car reversed out straight into the back passenger side of our car. Nothing to do with the black cat thing, right? Superstitions are all complete nonsense, RIGHT? Good. Therefore crappy things can't happen in threes... I hope. Fingers crossed!

I Miss Blogging

Hey. Remember me?

I just suddenly felt like typing some words here again. Apparently I have not done so since September of 2019! It is now 2021. Just an FYI in case you were unaware.  I'm very helpful with the Captain Obvious stuff. 

Oh, and there's this pesky old global pandemic thing happening. Fun times. Said no one ever. 

Consequently it felt a bit silly and unimportant in the scheme of things to keep on rambling on here in my ridiculous way. I dunno. I do overthink  things, because only a handful of people read my ramblings anyway. Which is how I like it. So on with the proceedings. 

Anyway, a few things have happened since September 2019. A bullet list is always a lazy yet efficient way of imparting information  So let's do it. 

  • I have continued being a volunteer administrative support assistant at Blacktown Community Hub St Vincent De Paul Society *waves at Vinnies people* 
  • I have finally completed my Diploma of Library and Information Services and am participating in the Australian Library and Information Association's mentoring scheme as a mentee. 
  • I completed my industry placement at Monte Sant Angelo Mercy College in North Sydney in order to (finally!) achieve my diploma. You may or may  not recall (or even care) that I was scheduled to begin a placement at University of Western Sydney back in April, then BOOM: Lockdown. Luckily I was able to keep my enrolment open in case a truncated placement became an option. And it did. See above. 
  • I have applied for a billionty jobs and had one or two interviews. Although I did not get the position I interviewed for I was offered to be put in the casual pool. I'm quite pleased with this outcome. I had my pre-employment medical just before Christmas, so fingers crossed some actual shifts in a library may be on the horizon. YAY! Unless we go into lockdown again... In which case I imagine libraries will close again. Related: wear a freaking mask, people! 
  • Last June we farewelled our lovely rescue dog Cookie. Such a beautiful soul. She rescued us, really. She was quite old and her cancer returned. She had previously had breast cancer before we adopted her. It was really difficult to let her go, but in the end it was the kindest thing to do. 

RIP beautiful Cookie 

  • We welcomed another rescue dog to the family! I always knew we would get another dog, but I've gotta admit it happened a hell of a lot quicker than I had imagined. But I am glad of it. Enter Chandler.  See below. He's a Jack Russel and Fox Terrier cross. He was a lost doggy at the local pound who was not claimed by his previous owners. All I can say is, their loss is our gain. He's definitely one of the family now! 

  • Mickey Blue Eyes and I have continued our tradition of scintillating Sunday drives. Here are a few highlights: 

  • Oh yeah, we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary last November. That's kinda a long time, right? 

  • I have a milestone birthday coming up next week! Hoping to have an appropriately socially distanced celebratory dinner with my family. And, of course, CAKE! 

So basically some things have changed, but on the other hand nothing ever changes with yours truly. 

Why mess with what works, right? 

Until *next time,


*Next time could be next week, next month, next year... Who knows?

Taking Stock: September 2019 Edition

Greetings and salutations, spectacular creatures! I trust life is treating you well. So here we are in September! Astonishing really, since it was January yesterday. WASN'T IT???! Just me? 

Anyway, I figured it's a perfect time for a stock take! So on with the show...

Making: Toast. Tea. A million dollars. Okay, I made up the last one. But if I manifest my desires the universe will provide it, right? Snorts. 

Drinking:  One of those fantazamagorical (totally a word) cocktails with a fun little umbrella. Manifesting again! Really drinking tea. Sigh. 

Reading: Recently I have read:

 The Truths And Triumphs of Grace Atherton by Anstey Harris.

The Flat Share by Beth O'Leary

I Thought I Knew You by Penny Hancock

The Trauma Cleaner by Sarah someone or other. And many more. We could be here for days...

Have also been listening to numerous audio books. I still prefer paper books for fiction but listening is good for non-fiction.

Wanting: A shoulder massage would be nice. 

Looking:  At old houses, mostly in America, on this Facebook page, for no reason whatsoever. Well, I suppose I need a plan in place, in case I should ever decide to change my identity and disappear forever. An old creaky house in Maine or somewhere should suffice. Yep, definitely been reading too many novels again...

Deciding: Whether I'd like the million dollars (see above) in full or installments. However the universe in all its abundance decides I guess. Just hurry up, universe. Hmph. 

Wishing: That shitty shit wouldn't happen to good people. 

Enjoying:  The arrival of spring and its enchanting sunshine of the last few days. Of course I'll still moan like a b$#ch when summer hits. That's just how I roll. 

Waiting: For the universe to get its act together. I'm terrified over here. 

Image result for you attract what you fear meme

Liking: I'll tell you one thing for nothing: I've been getting up early and exercising. And I like it! I mean, not nearly as much as I like cake, but still. 

Wondering: About TAFE assessments. I have two to complete and another submitted. The latter one is concerning because I have a hideous sinking feeling I may not have passed. Stay tuned. Sigh.

Loving:  The simple things like patting Cookie dog and cups of tea.

And this rather spectacular thing: my tit crushing results were all clear. Woo hoo! 

Listening: To Dateline on the telly and YouTuber Sheldon Tweedy (Mickey Blue Eyes is a fan, something to do with soccer or whatever, don't ask me) Cause yeah, it's important to have an informative current affairs programme on to ignore while you faff about on the internet. Works for us. 

Considering:  Options for my eventual work placement for TAFE. I can choose a type of library. It's exciting! Shut up. I do get out. Usually to the library. Details. 

Buying:  I would be buying that old house in Maine (back up plan), plus a new one in Sydney, if the universe stepped up. So rude. 

Meanwhile, groceries from Aldi it is!

Watching: The Downton Abbey movie. Well, I will be on Saturday. Squeeeeeeeeee! 

Marveling: At life, the universe and everything. By everything I mean that million dollars I'm still waiting for... Waiting, waiting waiting... 

Hoping: I'm wrong about the failed assessment. Gulp.

Needing: Definitely need a neck massage. In addition to the shoulder massage I mentioned before. Also need a word with the genius who coined this whole manifesting palaver. It's almost like it's made up bollocks or something.

Questioning: So many questions. What to have for dinner? Why do so many young women  have terrifying eyebrows? Will I fail the afore mentioned assessment? Why doesn't this manifesting bollocks work? WHY???

Smelling: Roast chooken and choc chip cookies. I've been cooking like a ninja.

Wearing: An attractive array of garments. Currently they consist of : pyjama pants, an old jumper, a fluffy cardigan over it, and a foolish expression. Nice.

Noticing: I couldn't help noticing that Cadbury blocks were $3.50 in our local IGA supermarket the other day. Foolishly I bought one. Should have bought half a dozen. DOH. 

Knowing:  Knowing when to leave may be the smartest thing that anyone can learn! Flyyyyy...

Ahem. Sorry. Carpenters/Bacharach song. You probs don't know it...

Shoulda went with ABBA instead: Knowing Me, Knowing You! Ahaaaaaa...

Thinking:  If I really think about it, I'm sure I'll think of something for Thinking. Hmmmm. I don't think so. 

Admiring: My children. I made gorgeous humans.

Getting: Up early. But I already mentioned that. And now that I've been all smug and superior watch me slip back into slothfulness. Serves me right, really.

Opening: Books, handouts, websites, documents and databases related to my studies. It's all happening.

Closing: Facebook. Sometimes. Shut up. I do!

Feeling: Apprehensive about that assessment. Delighted about the mammogram. Also: hungry. What else is new?

Embracing:  Early mornings. I know. I need to shut up about that. So I will...


And considering it's September right after January I may as well take this opportunity to wish you a happy Christmas and a merry New Year! I'm afraid to blink cause then it'll be 2020...

Okay, I'm off to find some toothpicks to lodge in my eyelids.

Until next time, stay spectacular!

Book Fetish, Miracle Baby Turns 18 & Other Bits & Pieces

Good evening to you! Or morning, or afternoon, depending upon where and when you're reading this. Figured I'd check in to my lonely little blog. Because what else am I gonna do on a Saturday night? Go out. Meet people. Socialise, you say? Bahahahahahahaha.  NO.

In my defence, my Friday night was COMPLETELY WILD AND CRAZY. It was spent on the couch buried in blankets, reserving library books online. This was despite the fact that I already currently have 17 items on loan. See? Crazy shit, huh? Not so wild as it turns out. But definitely crazy. So there's that. Shut up.

I'm with you, Steve!

In other news, I'm one week in to a four week break from TAFE. Semester One, DONE! Semester Two begins July 23. Eventually I will officially be some sort of Library Technician-y thing, just like I was in the olden days (early 1990s - totally prehistoric), but, you know, different. Cause apparently they do more than just put books on shelves and things these days. Probably just as well. I may have a book fetish. See above. Ahem.

Anyway, what else can I tell you? Oh yeah, I'm still going gangbusters in my volunteer role at Vinnies. I have no idea whatsoever what 'gangbusters' really means but it sounds impressive, so let's just go with it.

Yesterday, all the phones and computers were down due to a power outage the day before. This meant we couldn't take any calls (duh!) so the other admin lady and I read magazines and copied recipes we'll likely never cook. Until the mobile phone they'd diverted calls to actually worked and then I had to answer it and speak to a person in need. Rude.

No seriously, I'd rather have stuff to DO. There was a bunch of groceries delivered and I helped unpack them. Then there was a bunch of toiletries donated from a church. Some of the hand wash bottles were not screwed tightly and had leaked. The overwhelming intermingling and clashing scents gave me a throbbing headache. Sometimes I forget I'm autistic and have sensory issues. Luckily I had some extra strength paracetamol in my bag and managed to nip it in the bud quickly.

When I finished for the day there was a bunch of food trucks setting up for the night markets, but I resisted all the churros and other treats on offer because clearly I'm broke a health fanatic. I wandered into Westpoint to get a few groceries instead.

In keeping with the health fanatic thing, a bbq chook and hot  chips were bought for dinner. In keeping with my fetish, Mickey Blue Eyes picked me up in the library car park... Just kidding! I mean yes, he did pick me up there, but not because of my fetish.  It's actually easier to do this because the parking at Westpoint is farked due to ongoing work fixing structural damage. Supposedly it's going to be resolved soon-ish. Fingers crossed.

In approximately 11 days I will officially be the mother of an adult son. Mr 17 turns 18! He was my so-called 'miracle baby' 18 years ago. Long story. Read about it here and here if you're interested.

He decided he didn't want a party but he wants to go to a buffet and feast on all the things. As you can see, I've totally instilled the health fanatic thing into him. But it's a wise decision. He's soooooo skinny. He may as well enjoy the illusion of being able to eat until you burst and remain svelte while it lasts. I believe I too was skinny once, a very long time ago. Well, perhaps not quite THAT skinny, but reasonably so. Sigh.

On that note, I know I need to do something about my weight but I'm so stuck for a number of reasons:

  1. I like cake.
  2. I've tried various things over the years: groups at the women's health centre, the Get Healthy service thing-y where some one rings you to discuss being healthier, a dietitian, exercise addiction (worked when I was at least 15 - 20 years younger and not menopausal), and, of course, good old Weight Witches (worked really well...until it didn't...)
  3. I like chocolate.
  4. Each time I did Weight Witches I ended up fatter in the long term. See above. So clearly the whole 'diets make you fat' theory definitely...erm...holds some weight for me...  (Terrible puns FTW!)
  5. I like FOOD.

I generally don't talk about this shit because there's nothing more boring and super annoying than someone complaining they're fat then shoveling cake in their gob. Plus I see people in my volunteer role who don't even have basic food and I feel pathetic cause I'm basically whingeing that I have too much food. Seriously?! So I'll shut up about it now. 😥

At least I know the Mother Of The Decade Award is still mine. Managed to forget Mr 10 had an excursion on Wednesday. Consequently he missed the bus and stayed home. He was thrilled. Winning!

And now for the breathless anticipation that arrives at this time of the year. Nope, I'm not one of those lunatics who starts counting how many days until Christmas mid year. You know who you are. STOP IT.

My breathless anticipation revolves around having my tits crushed. It's time. Soon. I'm reasonably confident that all is good, but still. The FEAR. It'll be four years this year. So yeah, keep everything crossed for me!

I'm sure I could go rambling on forever but I better not. It's weird how I think I have nothing to report but then I get started and waffle on about everything and nothing. You're welcome.

OK, I better tackle those library books!  So I can borrow MORE. Look, it's a harmless fetish. You're just jealous! Sniff.

Over and out!

What's happening in your world? Do you have a (G-rated!) fetish?

Taking Stock: May 2019 Edition

Making: Brownies. Which means I get to eat them. YUM!

Drinking:  A billionty cups of tea. Followed by several zillion more.

Reading: Recently I have read:

Friend Request by Laura Marshall
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
The Break Down by BA Paris
Are You There God, It's Me Margaret by Judy Blume

Yes, I'm waaaay behind the times with some of those books but who cares.

Meanwhile I've just started reading Atomic Habits by James Clear for a bit of a non-fiction self-help switcheroo. Gotta mix things up sometimes.

Wanting: A cup of tea. Because the billionty plus a zillion I've already had are not nearly enough.

Looking: At the laptop screen. What else? I'm such a smart arse.

Deciding: Whether to take off to Europe or the States or just say screw it and do a complete world trip? The fact that this trip would be entirely imaginary is COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT.

Wishing: That I didn't just make up the deciding thing. See above. Sigh.

Enjoying:  Brownies. And the weather hasn't been too bad lately. Well, it took a turn to cold and grey yesterday afternoon but generally it's been quite pleasant.

Waiting: For someone to make me a cup of tea. One of those magical tea making fairies. Hurry up, Mickey Blue Eyes Tea Fairy!

Liking: That I seem to be getting into exercise again. But I better shut up or I'll jinx it...

Wondering: About assessments again. Seem to finish one and BOOM there's another. I guess that's something called The Real World. Where there are things to do and no magical Tea Fairies. Shame.

Loving:  I loved the Easter break. We went to the Easter Show and caught up with friends and family. It was great. The simple things in life FTW!

Listening: To myself tapping on the keyboard.

Considering: Getting up and making my own cup of tea. I'm very sorry it's come to this. Unacceptable. HMPH.

Buying:  Scripts and socks and so many exciting things. Those things are called groceries. OK, so they're not exciting. What do you want from me?!

Watching: I was excited to see that season two of The Letdown is coming back on ABC at the end of the month. I'll definitely be watching that. Meanwhile, I've got a few DVD's I've borrowed from the library. This is what sad sacks who don't have Netflix, Stan, Fetch, Foxtel or any other streaming service I've never heard of do. Such a tragic life I lead. Can you hear the violin music?

Marveling: At the fact that it's May. Wasn't it just Christmas?

Hoping: I pass my assessments. This still stands from the last stock take.

Needing: A magical Tea Fairy. I already told you.

Questioning: What the future holds...before bringing myself back to the present. You know, mindfulness and all that stuff. I need to remind myself of this mindfulness thing all the time.

Smelling: Dinner (pork chops and fried rice). Also; brownies. Because health fanatics. Clearly.

Wearing: Many layers of whatever fits. Works for me.

Noticing: I exercise yet am still HUGE. Apparently you have to eat less as well. Particularly things like pork chops with fried rice followed by brownies. Oops.

Knowing:  I'll never get that cup of tea unless I make it myself. Dammit.

Thinking: About assessments and shopping and all the things I have to do.

Admiring: My dog. She's kinda cute even though she's old. They say dogs are like their owners...

Getting: Fitter from exercising! Or is that fatter from eating brownies...

Opening: My mind to possibilities. Or something.

Closing: The window. It's cold!

Feeling: Cold but contented.

Embracing:  Mindfulness and exercise each day.

And just like that, another stock take (and almost half of 2019) is completed!

I'm off to make my own cup of tea since no magical Tea Fairies have appeared. Shocking, really.

Until next time, stay groovy!

Sharing Snaps

Greetings and salutations! I'm baaaaaack!

OK, I never actually went anywhere. Whatever. I've just been knee deep in Tafe assessments. Or 'Taff' as Mickey Blue Eyes says. It's just a thing he does. Mispronounces words. Apparently vegans are veg-ins. If you know what I mean. But that's just me going off on a tangent. As usual. That's the thing I do. Where was I?

Oh, yes. Assessments. I had to do one which involved creating a digital collection then recording the meta data for the images as if you're creating an important library collection. Nice.

So when I saw that this week's Life This Week prompt is Share Your Snaps, I figured I may as well pop in and do so. Even though they're mostly ancient type snaps. Some of them are from our wedding and a holiday back the 90s. Yep, definitely ancient. Can you believe the 1990s will be 20 years ago next year?! I'm doing that tangent thing again, aren't I? Oops.

The digital collection included 10 scanned photos and 10 digital born photos. Then there had to be a few different themes or subjects. Mine was Wedding, Holiday, Dresses & Parks. Here they are all ad hoc, cause I'm not creating an important library record here. I'm just rambling on. Cause I can. So ner.


Father and son, Blue Mountains, NSW

Blue Mountains, NSW

More mountains.

A lookout over the Nepean River. Don't ask me the name.
I forgot. Oops.

Jellybean Pool, Blue Mountains, NSW

Mind the gap.


And now for my frocks. Basically I just wanted to say the word frocks. It's not a proper library subject heading, so I couldn't use it for my meta data. Which is rude. Frightfully so. On with the frocks...

The exquisite creation I wore to my year 12
formal. Big bows FTW!

Isn't it just GORGEOUS? 😍

I wore this to my year 10 formal with lacy
stockings and fingerless gloves a la Madonna.
Well, it was 1986...

Silver stunner. Another 80s number.


Perth, WA circa 1996

Fremantle, WA.  I'm wearing  a very attractive hat.

The Pinnacles, WA

Wave Rock, WA

Me near a cave in 1996. Probably the last
time I've been near a cave...


We scrubbed up alright in those days.


I love the leaded glass church windows
in this one.

One of my favourite wedding snaps, even though it's
just random.

Mick loves to say "Take it easy" so this pose seemed

With our parents.

That completes my snaps.  Thank you for scrolling. Auto correct says scowling, but I won't thank you for that.

In other news, it's school holidays here at the moment, this week and next. Tomorrow we're off to the Easter Show. Later in the week we'll be catching up with some friends. Also, I have yet another assessment to work on. It's a presentation I have to give, and I still haven't even decided on a topic! I'm over thinking it instead of making a decision. That's the thing I do. Over thinking and tangents. See? I've gone on a tangent about over thinking....

I'm outta here.

Do you have any snaps to share?

Taking Stock: March 2019 Edition

Hello again, groovers and shakers! Yep, I'm still alive and kicking. Well, alive anyway. I don't really kick anything. That's far too energetic for me. Alive and sitting, shall we say? Sounds good to me. I do miss my little ramblings here, so I figured why not check in with another stock take? And I did. Here it is:

Making: I don't really make things, unless you count the three humans I made. And I'm well and truly done with all that. Oh yeah, I DO occasionally make those humans dinner. So that's something. Though I've also discovered that if you wait long enough everyone will just eat cereal instead. Scientific fact, apparently. Genius.

Drinking: Not enough. Related: I would love a drink right now. I'm talking booze, not tea. Side note: as I type this it's Saturday afternoon, in case you are reading this on Monday morning concerned that I have a problem.

Reading: I just finished reading a novel called Elizabeth Is Missing by Emma Healey. I enjoyed it. I still have a huge TBR pile. In fact, if you ever hear any news reports of a woman being buried alive by all her waiting to be read books, there's a good chance it's me. But what a way to go.

Wanting: The previously mentioned alcoholic beverage. I deserve it. Sniff.

Looking: For ideas for assessments (I'm studying for a Diploma of Library & Information Services for those who don't know).

Deciding: See: Looking. On assessment stuff. One of the units/subjects is Maintaining Digital Repositories (every time I say or type that last word I have to remember not to say suppositories - that would be quite a different subject! ). For this subject we need to digitise some photos. Of course, I am the one weirdo who never takes any photos. So yeah, I had better get on it.

Incidentally, how DO people take photos with their phones. I can never see anything outdoors because of the glare. Just me?

For another unit/subject, Training In A Library Environment, we have to give a presentation on a topic of our choice. Decisions, decisions...

Wishing: That cancer was just a zodiac sign. Yeah I've said it before, but seriously. F@$k that cancer shit. Side note: I'm FINE. Still cancer-free! Just in general. Cancer SUCKS.

Enjoying: I'm quite enjoying the diploma thingy. It's challenging, but in a good way. Good stress and all that, as my psychologist says. 

Waiting: For the kettle to boil. Then I wander off to do something else and forget the tea or whatever and start again... And again...

Liking: The weather is quite splendid in my neck of the woods right now. As soon as I say that, the fires of satan will spring forth to incinerate us all again. I'm scared now. NOOOOOOO!

Wondering: What to have for dinner. If I keep wondering it'll be cereal. See above.

Loving:  Being able to sleep when the weather is cooler.

Wishing: Wait, do I get another wish?!

Listening: To SILENCE. It's SUBLIME.  Related: I'm home alone. This does not happen very often. Ahhhhh, the SERENITY. 

Considering: What sentence to type for "Considering." Yeah, I really didn't consider that enough.

Buying: Groceries, and stationery that is needed for Tafe. Cause it's totally all for Tafe. Yep. Absolutely. Ahem. 

Watching: I've been watching The Heights on Iview. Nice little distraction. I like it. Recently I also re-watched the 1995 BBC production of Pride & Prejudice starring Colin Firth. I hadn't watched it in decades and had forgotten how good it was. SO good. 

Marveling: That I'm actually doing this library diploma thingy. True, it's nothing monumental, but it's HUGE for me.

Hoping: I pass my assessments.

Needing: A neck and shoulder massage and a million dollars should suffice.

Questioning: If I'm doing the right thing studying again at my age with no guarantees that it will lead to employment...blah blah blah...

But screw it, I'm doing it anyway!

Smelling: Coconut shower gel.

Wearing: Lots of pants with elastic waists. Not good.

Noticing: I am slowly changing some habits. Not likely to ditch the elastic waisted pants just yet, but you never know...

Knowing: I don't need to know all the answers. Everyone is making it up as they go.

Thinking: About thinking styles and cognitive distortions.

Admiring: Everyone who keeps trying despite their struggles. 

Getting: Older. Which is a good thing.

Opening: Folders and handouts and databases related to studying.

Closing: Facebook. Mainly cause I can't connect to Wi Fi when I'm at Tafe. Details.

Feeling: My moods change often (thank you, menopause), but just now I feel quite contented.

Noticing: That I already covered Noticing. See above.

Embracing:  Study and (GASP) ROUTINES! I know, I don't believe it either!

But, I get up early(ish) and exercise and meditate. I've only missed a couple of days in the last month or two. When I say exercise, it might only be for ten minutes, depending on how much time I have. But anything is better than nothing, right? That's my theory anyway. It's a start. 

So there you have it. Stock take completed!

Stay tuned for another stock take, coming soon to a blog near you! 

Look, I just really don't know how to end things...


The End.

Too abrupt? Oh well. 

Until next time, people. Stay groovy. 

Over and out.
