pollygosh_ma3

I’m sorry, I don’t have a solution. I’m not really sure I have any good advice either. Fat lot of good I am. I hope by sharing how hard I found it, how badly I did at it and how long it took – someone else might not feel so alone. Might recognise sooner that […]

Good Grief 2/3
pollygosh_ma2

I’m not Happy. That phrase. I’m not Happy. That’s what changed my life. Only sadly it wasn’t me saying it. It was A. My world bottomed out then. I went into free fall. Our beak-up was horrendous and protracted. It broke me up, for lots of reasons, obviously, the main one being; for me to […]

I woke up this morning and had the urge to write about grief. It’s a grizzly, grey day in JULY, my own hair is covering my keyboard; so I figured what the heck? I think about my Ma a lot these days. I’ve thought about her everyday since she died. Sometimes it’s fleeting, sometimes not […]

I could have called this post a million other things but I had to go with a cliche because hair loss and Chemo seems to be the biggest cliche there is. A few days ago, I went out for the night, mainly because I still have hair. I wanted to celebrate this fact and the […]

Well Hello There! I was going to write this update in the a numbers breakdown style, a la Bridget Jones; Nos. of Times Sick, Teaspoons of Apple Sauce Consumed, Pills Popped, Hours Slept etc….   Good sense prevailed however, so I shall just say after a a week and a half at my darling Papa’s […]

Kiss And Makeup

I have a confession to make; a dark little secret that I share with very few. Of the things I’ve written about on little blog, I’m probably the most nervous of sharing this. The fact is I am full on, flat up, addicted to make-up. I love it. I love the colours, the textures, I […]
