My lovely friend Laura sent this hairscarf all the way from New Zealand.
She's a pretty amazing gal. I'm so lucky that when the Gentleman Caller and I were travelling through her city she put us up for a week and showed us around! I hadn't seen her in 7 years and she's still as wonderful as always!

I would go back to New Zealand in an instant. Any one have a job for me?
I fell and hit my head in a ringette game and it wasn't great. As I'm an idiot, I continued to play a few more games. Turns out I had a pretty serious concussion. I was in a fair amount of pain in these photos.

After a week of blinding headaches and confusion I ended up in the ER. Not good. I was on brain rest for a few days which means no TV, computer, reading, music, or thinking.
Turns out that you can't just sleep for four days straight no matter how grief-exhausted you are.
I feel like I've spent my whole life in the same chair, in the same room watching someone I love spend their last days from the same disease that the same doctor couldn't cure.
My partner's mom died a few weeks ago. She had a smile that could light up a room. I loved her. 51 is far, far too young.
It all feels so heavy. Too much similarity between our moms. Well, that's not exactly true. They were very different people in equally wonderful ways. But their death events? Same, same but different.
I'm the family obituary writer now.
We're all going to be very gentle with ourselves. At least we're going to try.
All these mother's day adverts can suck it. I hate the thought that we have no one to by for this year. No one to honour in the same way. I'm still very undecided if I'm going to mother's day celebrations with the rest of my family. I just don't know anything anymore.
Lover of naps, cuddles, wine on patios, travelling, shoes, friends in near and far off places, food, blogs, dancing and most of all giggling.
Philosophy: We are here for such a short time. Shouldn't we be using it to take good care of each other? Shouldn't we have small adventures while we are planning big ones? Shouldn't we all encourage and share our magical talents? Shouldn't we be filling the world with nothing but lovely things?
Yes! Just jump if you have the courage, just jump and be happy!
