Friday visits and expressions

sketch

I can't believe Saturday is almost over! Nan update On Friday Gran, Mum and I visited Nan (the grandma I mentioned before, who has cancer). I think we were expecting her to be awake, not feeling so great, possibly in bed, but capable of getting up and around. It was quite a shock when we found her sprawled out in bed, repeating "I don't want anything" (I don't think she knew it was us at that point), with barely enough energy to open her eyes. … [Read more...]

Nearly the end

There once was a girl, when asked to look back at the year, she cried. Last night at bible study we individually shared our thoughts of the year passed and the one to come.

Just as gay could be a metaphor for any confusing feelings that we have... Or not! … [Read more...]

Haiku for City Rail

Oh, how I hate trains! Unreliable machines, great incompetence. I've been late everyday this week. I know it sounds like I should catch an earlier train but I really shouldn't need to. I'm already shattered from sleepiness and it is. The train that I catch should make it on time and has done before. Last year I used to catch a train 10 or 15 minutes later and get to uni 10 minutes earlier than I do these days. This morning, my inspiration for haiku, the train was a few minutes late to my home … [Read more...]
