A Writerly Evening #FridayReflections

July 7, 2017

Earlier this week, I was lucky enough to attend a free author event run by Central Coast Libraries. Kate Forsyth had been invited to talk about her writing journey as well as the story behind her new book, Beauty in Thorns. For a free event, this was awesome. To start with, they had food and drinks available. And yes, drinks included wine and non-alcoholic drinks. Kate started talking around 6:00 p.m. Now I must confess, I have never read any…

When things happen in threes

June 29, 2017

You know how there is a belief that bad luck runs in threes. Just in the past month, I’ve had my share of bad things happen. Honestly, if the catastrophe fairy could leave me, now would be a good time! A month ago, my relationship ended. That sucked big time. It still does but I am taking it one day at a time.

If we were having coffee, I’d welcome you to my new home. I’d apologise for the mess as I have yet to unpack my stuff since last Sunday. Fortunately, my kitchen is unpacked which means I do have coffee, tea or hot chocolate available. So pick your choice, sit down and relax this rainy Saturday. If we were having coffee, I’d tell you the move was hectic last weekend and especially traumatic for the cats on Sunday. In spite of…

Another weekend, another time to welcome you over for a cuppa. Get comfortable on the couch and I’ll grab you a beverage of your choice. How are you this weekend? If we were having coffee, I’d tell you this week has flown by! I guess having the Monday off due to a long weekend helped. I started my new job up the coast on Tuesday. Four days in and I’m quite happy with my decision to make that change. The…
