I wasn’t the one to bake with them, to take them to the beach, to bushwalk, to laugh – someone else did these things, and sometimes, no one did them.
Am I a failure?

Having taken years to reach a point … Continue reading #WhatsYourWord ● Part 2
Hey! Do you have songs that just give you the edge? ... continuing a bit of theme here. Over the years of ME/cfs, many, many times I have relied on music to get me through. Both Worship & Secular music. And I still do. Particular songs may express how I'm feeling, when I can't put … Continue reading I’ll Name That Tuuune..?
I try to have a word for the New Year as I don't always find resolutions very realistic, well for me anyway. So... Prompted by the WP Daily Prompt, thank you.
