I have been writing bits and pieces for a while now. I’m very disorganised so I thought a Blog was the best place to draw it all together. I have had an amazing and eclectic life so far; bursting with a crazy combination of experiences.
I have also written several (unpublished) children’s’ stories, have 4 boys of my own, dabble in art, was a Jillaroo for 4 years and have a degree in Accounting and Economics. Now that I write it all down, I can see why I am a bit of a nutter.
My blog is written as a story (about me of course), so new readers will need to start from the first post (Galloping Feet on a Lonely Road) for it to make sense. I thought long and hard about where to start but I found that the only logical point was at the sexual abuse I suffered as a child. It wasn’t until recently that I started to understand the connections from this to the way I think, the decisions I have made and the places I have gone….it’s not all bad! And please do not think that just because I start here, it defines me. He never had that power over me. I have made my own way in life, I am proud of who I am, where I have been and where I am heading.
I hope you gain something from my Blog, whether it be a shared experience, empathy, knowledge or even just a link. Feel free to write a comment!
