• One being of happiness

    A lot of things tend to make me happy, but the number one thing has to be cats. I own three currently and each one is my baby, my favourite is Tigger, he's the oldest and just turned 9 years old. I adopted him in 2009 not too long after my gran died and I went through difficulties in coping, he was one of the things I got during that time ...

  • ME-ternity Leave

    ME-ternity LeaveBorn mid December, already a week late but heifers always are according to my Dad. Farming's always come first over family with him so my part in his story seems very much like a sideshow. So how did he shape my story? He pushed me away from farming and his old fashioned views on female roles as subsiduary characters. My Mum reinforced this by telling me to keep my independence and maybe this is ...

  • Treat or Treatment

    Treat or TreatmentLooking back can be cruel or kind, all depending on the nature of my mind.

  • I want to be me

    I want to be confident, I used to be that girl. Back in high school and college I was so cocky and small-minded that nothing bothered me. I was confident in myself and roughly confident in how I looked (lets be realistic no one is confident with how they look ever day). Then after two years of college I was kicked out for being too cocky. Within two weeks I had four jobs to support ...

  • Time to smell the Roses

    Time to smell The Roses When my life is not going well I can find comfort - in a smell. "A smell?" I seem to hear you ask But think: Of freshly cut green grass; A bag of chips to take away At the seaside on a Sunny day. The perfume counter in a store Flowers; vase of freesia; more Than this: There's lentil soup and new baked bread They'll conjure images in your head! ...
