  1. Benni it's a problem not often discussed, unfortunately. Taboo subjects, like depression, incontinence, miscarriage, all need to become normal subjects, to help everyone who suffers. Years ago, when I had post natal depression after the birth of Carrah, a friend said to me she wouldn't tell anyone. I said didn't matter who knew. Stigma is a terrible thing. 👑💚

    That's one good thing, reverse cycle air conditioning!! It has been colder here this year than the last few years. I've taken to wearing my slippers to bible study and soup kitchen! 👑💚
  3. Good on you, Sue. Paying it forward is so very rewarding. 👑💚

    I guess Deigh, knowing if you don't stick to the routine you know it's not going to work. There's always a silver lining. 6am is very early, particularly in winter! 👑💚

    Good Week / Bad Week

    Why can't a good week just be a good week? These up and downs play havoc with my emotional stability. I comfort eat, don't drink enough, if any, water. Don't sleep well...drained physically and mentally. Connor turned 17 last week. In Australia, you don't get your driver's licence until you are at least 17, and (in WA) done at least 50 hours on a learner's permit. So on Connor's birthday he sat his test and passed. Happy boy. We also enrolled him at TAFE (from what I can gather it's community college) for next semester doing a pre-apprenticeshi

    Excellent comeback Heather! Will definitely try to remember that one! 💚👑

    I'm sure they will, Heather. We've had a bad week. I'm a comfort eater. It's not fun. 💚👑

    Tomatoes...yum. Glad you are feeling better after your covid jab, Kev. 💚👑

    Oh wow! Snow is so very magical!! We were in Canada for Christmas a few years ago and the kids, Connor in particular, had the best time playing in the snow! One lady came up to us and said that watching him play reminded her that snow is beautiful, not a nuisance for driving in etc. I hope you enjoy your daily workout Willis! 💚👑

    Deigh, it's no good, this viscous thing called sleep cycle. I'm with you, things are going great, then one little thing will knock my routine out of whack. I'm hoping you have managed to sort yours out. Again. 💚👑

    I get it Heather, totally. I used to get: what did you do to yourself? To myself?? Seriously? This is not something that I would do to anyone, let alone myself! The thing that gets me is when people say "well I could get hit by a bus tomorrow, " Totally diminishing what I'm going through, what I've been through and what's still to come. I want to know, is there a maniacal bus driver out there somewhere, just waiting to knock down half the planet? 💚👑
  12. Tracy, I hope Bonnie is coping ok. Other people's woes don't diminish our own, but it certainly makes us count our many blessings. Like you lot. Where would I be, if I didn't know all you wonderful, supportive people? 💚👑
  13. Also Paul, when we went to canberra we stayed at ANU! Our room was full of awesome retro furniture! Loved it! The room, that is. 💚👑

    Sugar is the bane of my life. I have discovered that I can have delta cream biscuits (my absolute favourite) and they don't interfere with ibs. Seriously, I wish they did. 💚👑

    Good advice Tracy. I always feel like The Terminator. You know, everywhere he goes, he scans the room? I'm looking for the best spot to sit for easy access, stairs, carpet lips, kids! Making the right choices is a big help. 💚👑
