Christmas without a loved one…

November and December are always exciting months for my family and I, as right after Halloween we start preparing for Christmas. Saying that we love the holiday is a bit of an understatement. Under normal circumstances, we would have fully decorated mum’s house for Halloween and had a massive party. On the first of November... Continue Reading →

Scribbling through insomnia

Since writing the post about my dad, it’s been incredibly difficult to write down my thoughts. Thoughts are constantly flooding my overthinking brain. It’s just been incredibly difficult to express myself. These are some incredibly raw emotions that I finally managed to express, that clearly show the vulnerability I’ve been experiencing over the past weeks. Hopefully it’s the start to regaining my writing mojo.

Dear dad…

A letter to daddy who left us two weeks ago, as we're adjusting our lives to learn how to live without him. Nothing can fill the empitness in our hearts right now. Daddy, Where do I begin?

I’m posting this today because the incident I’m going to talk about actually happened exactly 10 years ago... Continue Reading →

Prudence at sea

I am not the biggest beach fan, in fact you’ll rarely see me by the seaside. The few times I do go to the beach, it’s usually because of friends who organise a beach day and it would be a good chance to spend some time with them. As I sit here writing on a... Continue Reading →

Getting back out there…

This post has been a long time coming, but sometimes life throws us curve balls which put us completely off balance, and the past weeks have been just that. I cannot say that I was completely removed from society during this isolation period. There were days I just had to leave the house and go... Continue Reading →

My Zen place… excluding the sunburn

As a little girl The Little Mermaid was my number one movie and the VHS tape was always on repeat. I used to sing all the songs but close my eyes whenever Ursula came on screen. Of course now I dream of playing that role and belting ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls’ on stage, but I digress.... Continue Reading →
