Hi Jane,

Hi Jane,

I really felt for Vanessa when Spencer said it was his idea to cook Beef Wellington. Ooh! That's so patronizing...poor woman.

The story's coming along great and I'm definitely a Vanessa fan. Not sure about Pat and Stu...

Posted on Tue, 12 Dec 2023

Thank you for your understanding Jacques. We were out in the car on our way to the shops, and were confronted by road rage yet again. Four cars trying to race in and out of traffic and nearly causing my partner to have an accident. It's so scary...

Hi Jean, 

Posted on Thu, 30 Nov 2023

Hi Jean, 

I was watching on youtube a poem read by a poet named Maya Angelou, called Still I Rise. This poem reminded me of you and your courage, when faced with the distress you're enduring.

I'm glad that the past two weeks have...

Just when you think things

Posted on Wed, 22 Nov 2023

Just when you think things couldn't get much worse, even more drama unfolds. You tackle the seedy side of life so vividly. The poor boy has to trust so many of his instincts just to save himself from one misfortune after another. But it leaves me...

I think Jacques read my thoughts and I couldn't have put it better myself Paul, especially as I'm a child of Love, Peace and Happiness. 

Just thinking about hate makes me sick to my stomach.

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE. AND PLENTY OF NATURE'S...

Hi Turlough,

Hi Turlough,

I loved every word of your dear diary entries, but especially the first four stanzas which I could relate to.  

A fat arse stuck in a helter-skelter...now that was funny to imagine, but probably not for you at the time...

Posted on Sat, 25 Feb 2023

Oh! How I yearn for the countryside, to be at one with the landscape. Just for a moment I was right there with you in your poem, you make it seem so breathtaking.

Thank you for sharing this gorgeous poem Rhiannon, and the photos are...

Posted on Tue, 20 Dec 2022

I think you've kept this story so real. There's only so many times you can forgive someone for their aggression, then the only action you can take, is to move on, but for so many women the fear is far too great, which is very sad.

Posted on Wed, 16 Nov 2022

This was a lovely family situation until the end. I have a feeling things aren't all what they seem and that is a big concern.

Looking forward to finding out more.

Jenny.

I too have never heard of chemo curls. Went through a similar experience as you when I was younger. My hair is straight too. It was when a friend asked me to be a maid of honour at her wedding in about 1978. She wanted me to have permed hair so I...
