I had a person….

I had a person.  A Christina to my Meredith.  We were both only children and yet we were each others sister. We had known each other since my Dad accosted her on my first day of High School at the train station. She was wearing my school uniform and my Dad asked her if she would “take me to school”. She had been riding the rails solo for many years and Im not sure what she thought of me needing an escort. Even though she was still in Junior School and it was my first year in High School, she showed...

One for the Girls

  LADIES – TAKE TIME FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT FIVE MINUTES OF YOUR LIFE In lieu of any exciting stories in my life what with the in-laws staying for a week and hubby and I kicked out of our king-size bed, one to the toy room and t’other to the couch, I wanted to share with all the ladies a personal story which will hopefully encourage you to make some time for yourself which your family will treasure. I have always been fairly blasé about pap smears, who isn’t? They’re invasive, uncomfortable and the timing is often inappropriate in...

My post How I met my Husband – shhh its a secret got so many nice warm comments that I thought I would follow it with the story of when I proposed to my Mr Point Five.

Letter to Me at Sixteen.

I’m not saying I haven’t made a few wrong turns and bad decisions in my past. I didnt get to where I am today within the time frame I had when I was 16 when I thought I would meet...

Mr Point Five will fall through the floor when he reads this post – all of his friends and family think we met at a “karaoke” night which is essentially the truth if you go definitively by the word “met”. So he tells people this when we are asked and I wink and motion to a select few that I will tell my version of this truth when he is out of earshot. He gets so embarrassed by the words ONLINE DATING so shhhhh – mums the word OK? I had just moved back to Perth from living with my now...
