Just a note..

...to say that I am actually still alive and well, and dare i say it, almost thriving!!

Still no internet though.. SIGH.. looks like it'll be February before I'm back online.

Ah well..

Hope to be back with a vengeance then.

In the meantime, H N Y and watch out because '09 is going to be one hell of a year! (and I'm psychic, so I know!;-))


27 November 2008



Starting early October I got a flu like virus which got worse and worse and then got better and better... totalling seven weeks of hell illness.

I was starting to get back to a semblance of life when..

I got a chest infection

If only endurance were an Olympic sport.. I'd be gold all the way.

Today's favourite cheery song: Alphabeat, 'Boyfriend'

...you think you are reaching the top of the mountain. An unexpected storm breaks. You find yourself tossed to the ground.

Back to the shadows. Back to the corner of the bed.

Are you dying inside?


Don't tell me to be positive. Walk a mile in my wounded moccasins then you maybe you can speak.

Leave me in the corner of my room. Leave me on the floor where I struggle to breathe.

No fight left. Weak at the seams. After five years, My. Heart. Just. Broke...

All I can do is keep breathing...

Ane Brun, 'True Colors'

Favourite quote

I posted this picture on TAW blog last week.

I'm posting it here because the quote has become so important for me to read: in any and every moment of trial and tribulation.

There really is only one of me in the whole wide world and I am learning how important it is to treasure that fact...

...and for a seasoned tree hugger, what a fabulous tree!!! ;-)

Today's favourite (I really adore this..) song: Joseph Arthur, 'Honey and the Moon'

Blogger's block

So, it seems that bloggers have blocks too... I haven't been able to think of a single interesting thing to write lately. And the things I do want to write about suddenly seem far too personal to even let them escape my brain..

hey, on the bright side, maybe this makes me a real writer.. ;-)

So, in lieu of any interesting words, here is some music. These are the two songs that are rocking my world this week... both of which pretty much reflect my mood..

Today's favourite songs:

Kanye West, 'Love Lockdown'

Razorlight, 'Wire to Wire'

Tips for coping

wear dresses in bed
get a cat
watch the little things
talk to your soul
love in the depths
