life seems to be throwing a lot of shit at me lately to see how much I can deal with. I do still have things to be happy about though. 2 months ago
Today I have had to deal with severe disrespect towards me, a boy who chose to run around the room throwing a great deal of paper, kids punching each other, not listening, girls issues and a child who was given his ADHD tablet late, so was off for the lesson I had him for. He exhibited this with anger and threatening others. 2 months ago
just so you know, I was as sceptical as you were in the beginning and now I would never go back :)
Agreed with the amount of meat being too high as well, there’s a paleo pyramid which I agree the most with. It’s water on the base, veggies, meat & fish, fruit, nuts & oils and then spices right at the top. 2 months ago
This quote really spoke to me. I do tend to rely on the friends I made in high school. With the same experiences come the same conversations. I don’t feel I am really growing, although I definitely value these friendships and find them comforting. I need to work on strengthening the loose ties I have with people, those I’ve met through C’s work and a couple from uni. As a temp who works at many different places, it also makes it difficult to form new friendships, although I am trying my best to be open and friendly. 2 months ago
I’m out of cheers! I wish you all the very best for your wedding tomorrow, I am sure it will be beautiful! xx 2 months ago
So far the occasional gluten-free pizza with cheese seems to be fine. Cannot eat cheese by the slice anymore, which is very sad. Next month I will try goat’s cheese and see if I fare any better.
I’m absolutely fine with butter and because of that, I’m assuming cream as well.
Cow’s milk seems to be the main issue for me, not a big reaction, but a little unsettled in the tummy. That’s okay, there’s plenty of substitutes for that!
Also next month I will re-introduce yoghurt. Crossing my fingers I’m okay with that one because I really like it. 2 months ago
I love this photo! It makes me want to curl up with a book. 2 months ago

I wonder why that is? Is it so we can deal with it all at once and enjoy the positive times more? I hope that your autumn is full of good things. Even though C is dealing with his own things, he’s been very supportive about the others. Very grateful for that. And lots of hugs!
I was thinking of you a lot lately as I went about my day, as you often post about looking after yourself. So after donating blood this morning, I went grocery shopping, had a nap, a bath and then a bowl of home-made beef noodle soup. It doesn’t change any news of course, but I feel better that I’ve looked after myself. So thanks :) 2 months ago
- My best friend’s boyfriend has been diagnosed with brain cancer and has potentially 2 years to live.

keep growing overnight I swear. I’ve been very busy this week with relief teaching, I get up at 5.30 to get to schools, work the 6 hours and am home at about 5.30. So I’m pretty tired by the time I get home. I’ve also run out of detergent and keep forgetting to buy some more! Plan for today is buy dish-washing stuff and then get them done.
Lounge room looks okay, it could be better. Last night C and I had pizza, so there’s a couple of things from that lying around. Had dairy from the cheese, so didn’t meet the no dairy goal this month either. But-I felt fine.
Putting my clothes away or in the wash is actually going really well. I feel good about it as it makes it easier for C as he deals with the washing.
This week I will focus more on levelling up on the Fitocracy site, I haven’t focused on that much lately. 2 months ago
with depression today. He’s had some bloods taken and has been given some tablets to take. He’s been told that they make him feel detached during the first week of taking them. I have a feeling that I’m going to need great strength and the support I find here to get through this. I am so proud of him for doing something about it, I know a lot of men would choose to ignore it. 2 months ago
working on this lately! I’m making steady progress and as long as I’m moving forward with it, I’m happy. I can see where I’m going with it clearer now and have spent some time writing and some time researching. Did you know you can buy anti psychotic drugs online? 2 months ago
education, both primary & tertiary, for women’s, gay & lesbian rights, including marriage equality. For banning live export and fair treatment of refugees.
The prime minister, who was elected yesterday, agrees with none of these views. How are you meant to live in a country where it’s leader has such opposing ideas to your own? For the first time, I am actually terrified of what this will do to the country. I am scared as it seems that his policies will benefit the rich, not to mention all of the cuts he’s talking about. I am scared as it has been said that “If 25 000 teachers lose their jobs, so be it.” I do not feel supported and I do not feel a part of Australia anymore. 3 months ago
had a miscarriage after 5 weeks. I feel sad and misplaced. 3 months ago
a ridiculous amount for a lunchbox the other night online. It is, however, stainless steel which will last a lot longer than plastic. It’s also more practical, kind of like a bento box with 3 separate compartments. So I’ll use that instead of my one with a big now unnecessary space for a sandwich. 3 months ago

with a sore neck and a headache this morning. Still have both, I must have slept wrong. 3 months ago
I went to a bridal expo and won a photo shoot! It was a lot of fun and the photos turned out surprisingly well. If I’m feeling brave, I may just post one here when I get them.
I have paid off $400, I now need:
Friday September 13th: $130 Friday September 27th: $130
-Friday October 11th: $130 (was unable to pay)
-Friday October 25th: $130 (unable to pay again)
Friday November 8th: $130
Plus $250 in cash when I go to pick them up. Phew! That’s a lot of money, but at least they’ve been willing to be flexible if I can’t pay one fortnight. 3 months ago
and I certainly haven’t been avoiding food. This is my lunch:
Mixed salad greens, capsicum, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, chicken, sun dried tomatoes, bacon and pine nuts. It probably has something to do with getting up twice last night. I’m getting there with improving my sleep, but someone was hanging around my sister’s house recently and she’s been a bit scared of being alone. So she’s been spending a fair bit of time here, waiting until her boyfriend finishes his shift (which is usually quite late) and I feel bad going to bed too early. I think she’s feeling better about it now, they’ve recently had an alarm put in and a sensor light. 3 months ago
