Sunday Scribblings – Milestone

She didn’t realise when it was happening that it was a milestone event in her life.

It was really just a regular online chat with one of her girlfriends that turned into something more, a sharing of deep held thoughts and secrets and things that she didn’t even know she felt or thought until the words came tumbling,  it was though her fingers had a mind of their own as they tapped across the keyboard, letting forth the deep and long held secrets, things that she thought would turn people away if they really knew her thoughts, if they knew what she was really like. But the friend said “I understand”, and didn’t just ‘understand’ but felt the same and did similar things, and it was like a flood gate of honesty was open, as she knew she would not be judged by this friend as she emptied her heart onto the computer screen, with each word typed a weight lifted from her and she felt ‘normal’.

in the days that followed, she realised what a huge event this had been, and that her life had changed because of it

Saturday 9 – Everybody is a star

Filed under: saturday 9 — ~Kathryn~ @ 8:17 pm

Saturday 9: Everybody is a Star

1. Did you ever think that you’d be a star? If yes, doing what?

I was always going to be a singer /dancer. I would practise in my room, singing in the hairbrush and perfecting my dance moves …. I actually was pretty good (in my own mind)

2. Tell us about the last time you had a romantic dinner.

We went away to celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary – I organised a special weekend away at Jenolan Caves heritage house. Our dinner was a 6 course meal … everything was so lovely … we had a beautiful time. OMG that was 6 months ago – we need to do it again

3. Tell us about your worst job interview.

Ha – that’s easy – went for a Community Development Job and the first question they asked me was “what is community development” and I went completely and utterly BLANK and couldn’t answer the question !!

4. Tell us about your stupidest date.

Too long ago to remember – I do remember the stupidest comment I ever made on a date – I was about 17 going out with a 21 year old … who asked me if I liked the martial arts …. I replied “I love all sort of art work”

5. How much in common do you think you should have with a romantic partner?

a fair bit – good to have some things that are separate too.

6. Tell us about a favorite meme that you loved but no longer posts.

dunno …  I tend to ‘drop them off’ like I did with this one for a while

7. How did you get into blogging?

my friend Lee had one – and I was just about to go on my first trip on Route 66 and thought it would be a great fun way to record our adventures – haven’t stopped writing since !!

8. Do you share all your fantasies with a significant other?

nope not at all …. i have a nice little one going at the moment that is all MINE !!!

9. What change in your life would you like to happen this year?

more weight loss, keeping in contact with friends more, more dinner parties, more fun !!!

Read write poem – SHE

Filed under: readwritepoem — ~Kathryn~ @ 8:07 pm

read write prompt #112: the narrative wallpaper

ok – so I took this in probably a completely different way than the prompt was meant ……

She gazed around the room

the blank walls stared back at her
She picked up a pen and began to write his name

Over and over till the wall was blank no more

She sat down in the middle of the room and looked up at her handiwork

She cried out his name over and over
She hung her head in shame and wept
As the knife came in contact with the skin on the back of her wrist

She wrote his name once more
…………………………………………………………………………………..in red this time

something new for me ……

Wordle: Read Write Poem 109

oh poop
i wrote a poem and the power went out … and lost it. Shall try again
Take two ….

her fertile mind asked the question
why was life so hard ?
why could it not be simple ?
why could she not easily get over the stones and hurdles in her life ?
she shouldered heavy thoughts about life and love

her fertile mind looks forward to the nights when she can think of him again

i never do anything by half
it is one extreme or another
lets collect fridge magnets she says
next thing the whole of the fridge AND freezer are covered and there is a box in the drawer and just got rid of a few dozen ……

i never do anything by half
when i want something i go all out to get it
i’m like a dog with a bone
and if i can’t get it, i whine and sulk, and pout and moan about whey i don’t like it any more anyway ……

i never do anything by half
when i saw you i knew i had to have you
i pursued you
slowly at first, then more and more determined to let you know how i felt, there is no halfway with me, from one extreme to another

and now you know
there is no doubt

Sunday Scribblings ~ New Leaf

Well I had to have a bit of a giggle when I saw the prompt this week – I work for a company called New Leaf – and it is the LAST THING I want to think about today on my last day of holidays before going back to work tomorrow.


She opened the diary, it was blank
there is something slightly scary about an empty book
nothing to commit to
nothing to aim for
so upon the blank pages she started to write
on the days ahead
the things she wanted to do the goals she wanted to meet
this was the start of something new
a new start
a new leaf
……….. she turned another page
