My Guiding Light, A Poem For Mum

Well today I am brooding…with all the drama going on with my sister, it has me thinking (dwelling I guess)

So I thought I would share a poem. I wrote it after Mum died, and read it at her funeral. It has helped me through…..

My Guiding Light

I can feel you in here with me,

it’s like you’ve never gone

yet I open my eyes, and I’m alone,

this whole thing feels so wrong.

You were the best, the brightest

always so loving and so kind,

the hole you leave will never heal

in the hearts you leave behind.

You had a smile to light up darkness,

a great loud booming laugh,

you threw yourself right into life,

never did anythings by halves.

Always kind and caring,

you did what you knew was right.

you taught me when to yield my ground,

and when to stand and fight.

You encouraged me to greatness

in things both large and small,

all my joys and triumphs,

you shared with me them all.

I will feel you in the sunshine

and splashing through the waves,

I will be the one you showed me how,

always truthful, kind and brave.


My Mum

Get it together and RUN

So Easter has been and gone, and I think it’s time to start looking after myself.

There’s been way to much chocolate in this here house, mostly consumed by me, on the couch..(please tell me I’m not alone in this….anyone..????)

Anyhoo, the time has come to….(da na na naaa…) go for a run 🙂

That’s right, I’m getting back into it!

Exercise, eat right, yada yada. Wish me luck peeps.

Seriously though, time to clean out the cupboards (they are wayyy festy), get back on track and start cooking up some simple, healthy tucker. Two of my fav blogs for recipies are Awesome thermomix based food. Mostly gluten,dairy and sugar free. So delish,

and clean,easy, totally yummy in every way.

If you ever need cooking inspiration I reckon you should check these two ladies out.

Anyway, time to lace up the runners and put my money where my mouth is!!

Catch ya 🙂


So..I have a blog

Well, for some reason I decided to start a blog. I’m not too sure why, maybe it’s somewhere to reflect, somewhere to embrace the positive. Somewhere to celebrate this life.

I don’t even know what I’m going to write about, or if anyone will read it.

But thats OK, because this is for me. My thoughts, my life, my blog   🙂
