Welcome back

without comments

The first post on this blog is from 2003. Twenty years ago. I only had two kids then and they were both very little. I had a different husband, I had just turned 30 and weighed 72 kgs. I know this because I always know my weight and back then I had been on a major campaign to be thin for my 30th. I found some photos from my birthday party the other day, while looking through photos with Jasper (he wasn’t born then) for his HSC visual arts major work (because he wasn’t born then but he’s finishing high school now. Time, huh) and my God, I was so young. And looked so fucking good. What I remember however, is that I was so annoyed and disappointed in myself because I had desperately wanted to be 70kgs and just couldn’t get there.

Crazy huh. But as I shake my head at how mean and hard I was on myself at 30, I sit here at 50 doing exactly the same thing, but this time with the very real threat of illnesses, ailments, conditions that come home to roost when you hit the big five-oh.

This isn’t even what I was planning to write about. As Hannah Gadsby says, this isn’t a story, it’s a boring list of facts.

Anyway, I haven’t written about life for a long time. Let’s see how it goes.

Pay attention to the weather, to what breaks your heart, to what lifts your heart. Write it down.

I’ve decided this old girl has served me well. For the moment she’s going to relax in the back paddock.

I’m so sorry if you keep getting these dodgy posts in your inbox – I am fighting with technology this evening to try and reconnect the blog with the blog’s FB page and well, the interwebs is not playing nice.
