Six Years.

October 11, 2013

~10th of October 2007~ I walked into a room one day, thinking I carried one, I learnt I was a mummy to two, yet walked away with none. Identical in every way, including the angel wings they’d grown. Before I had a chance to know them, to heaven they had flown. They blessed me with […]

It is a side of myself that I keep very private. What I am writing about will come as a surprise to most people I know, […]

I’m horrified. You should be too.

August 28, 2013

Warning- This post contains images that readers may find disturbing. Something happened in the last week. Something shocking, horrifying, beyond comprehension. If you were to read the newspapers, or watch mainstream news broadcasts, you may think I’m referring to the Essendon football club drug ‘scandal’.

Abuse Doesn’t Always Leave A Mark.

Once upon a time, there was a fairytale wedding. The bride wore a beautiful long white dress, with a veil over face. She walked down the aisle of a quaint blue-stone church, and was married by a man of God. The wedding was celebrated with a grand reception in a heritage listed building, filled with […]

Diabetes Denial.

August 2, 2013

It was Melbourne Cup Day, 1989. I sat on the bed in the Drs surgery, swinging my legs, waiting, whilst the Dr rang the local hospital to let them know I would be coming in. I was nine years old, and our GP had just given me a finger prick test and diagnosed me with […]

The Rules.

July 7, 2013

We don’t make the rules. Autism does. If we don’t follow the rules, it takes hold of our beautiful, intelligent, funny daughter, and […]

#My Love Made Visible

July 2, 2013

I’ve always loved the idea of ‘photo a day’ challenges, unfortunately I usually only last a couple of weeks before I start missing days, then think ‘bugger it’ and chuck it in all together. So when one of my lovely friends suggested a 52 week photo challenge, my ears pricked up. Surely I could manage one photo […]

Safety In Numbers.

June 16, 2013

Last week, I felt myself slide into the dark hole that is guarded by the Black Dog. It had probably been coming for a little while. Sneaking up on me. I tend to ignore it, as if that will make a difference. Like if I can’t see it, it can’t see me. Until I find myself […]
