2 years later, it hasn’t gotten an easier. I still struggle to accept the fact that I can’t pick up the phone and hear his voice whenever I need a little advice. I’m not sure if it will ever get easier. I still haven’t learnt how to live without my king. So here’s one more letter with all that I wish I could tell daddy right now.
Another year, another birthday… What has it had to offer?
Another year, another birthday - a time for reflection on achievements, hardships, even things we'd like to forget. The experiences we go through however, help us become the people we are. It is up to us to relish that or let it break us. I’m still of the opinion that the past two years have... Continue Reading →
Sisterly bonds in unexpected places
This one's for the girls Sometimes we meet people in life who leave permanent marks on our hearts, and we can meet them in the least expected moments and places. It is then so much harder to say goodbye when it’s time for them to move on to embark on a new adventure. This might... Continue Reading →
On-stage memoirs of a true klutz
On most days, performers are praised for their grace on stage. But I assure you that with a klutz such as myself, that grace can be lost within a blink of an eye. Having just celebrated International dance day, I took a trip down memory lane of my clumsiest theatre moments.
Two years from the week that changed our lives
This week two years ago was the happiest and scariest week of my life. We had the first performance of 'The Addams Family', but we also received news of dad's aneurysm and Malta's first COVID-19 case. The past two years have literally been life altering, but I believe that I've really grown from these experiences.
A short getaway – natural therapy
Life has become too fast and hectic. We all reach points where we need to wind down. What better way to do this than with a short break in nature?
New experiences – memories that will last
At times life throws random experiences in our paths and it is up to us whether to take them on and try something new, or just ignore them and stick to our usual routine. So what did life have to offer in the past weeks?
Another first without you…
Another letter to Dad, this time as I’m trying to get through my first Father’s Day without him. I can never be grateful enough for all that he’s given me in life. The pain has not got any better 9 months after losing him, and I’m still not ready to live without him.
To all the mums: super mums, pet mums and more…
I had started writing this post last year, but never actually published it. Reason being that I couldn’t imagine how difficult a day like this is for anyone who lost a mother, isn’t close or on good terms with their mother, is trying to become a mother, or has lost a child. After losing daddy 8 months ago though, I truly feel that we should celebrate our parents and their endless love for us, every day of our lives.
No it’s not OK
Over the past weeks women have been speaking about a fear they’ve been experiencing for most of their life. You might tell me, more of this? We’re sick of hearing the same thing over and over again. Perhaps I should have posted this a couple of weeks ago, but perhaps not, because we shouldn’t let... Continue Reading →
