Poetry - Childhood dreams

A poem I wrote many years ago...

When I was a little girl
I though I could rule the world
What happened to my childhood dreams
They disappeared, or so it seems

Looking back through the years
It's hard to see when she disappeared
Do I have the courage to start again
Will there be joy or only pain

I feel like I am still that girl
Hidden in a shell like a treasured pearl
If I could open her heart again
I know our dreams would be the same

When we look back in years to come
Will she like what I've become
Or will I still be the little girl
Who wished that she had changed her world

I'm Back

Wow, it's been so long since I have posted and such a lot has happened!

In no particular order...

Our darling Coco passed away after a tough couple of years of illness.

I turned 50.

My retina detached but is back where it should be.

I was alcohol free for two months.

I lost 3 KG

I headed back to work after a ten year break.

Wow, that is a lot. I intend to post more frequently to this neglected blog and I've missed you guys.

Happy Birthday Coco

Coco has had a big week. Hubby and I took her to the vet on Monday. She stayed there for the day to have some lumps checked out and to have her teeth cleaned. The lumps are benign and her teeth are so white now that she could be a movie star J

Coco turned eleven years young on Friday. It’s hard to believe that’s she’s eleven, it seems like she was a puppy just yesterday.

That’s all from me today. Have a great weekend.

Happy Anniversary To Us

Hubby and I celebrated six years of being together this week.

I feel so happy and blessed to have found Steve. He is the kindest, funniest, most loving person I know and he’s also my best friend. I love spending time with him and he treats me like a princess.

I’m looking forward to spending many more happy years together.

A Huge Explosion

Earlier in the week, hubby and I were watching an episode of Criminal Minds. One of the characters on the show was trying to defuse a bomb. Suddenly there was a huge noise and our house shook. It felt and sounded like a large truck had crashed into the side of our house. As you can imagine, it was quite a shock. The neighbours who were home came out of their houses and we tried to figure out what had happened.

A little while later, we learned that there had been an explosion at a factory in our neighbourhood and a man had died.

Scary stuff. 

That's all from me today.

Spaniel Cam

Hubby and I recently watched an episode of ‘Secret Life of Dogs’. This week, dogs were being filmed while they were home alone and the results were rather upsetting to me. There was whining, howling, barking and many other forms of separation anxiety.

Coco isn’t left on her own very often, so when we went out last night, we decided to do a little experiment of our own. I set up my camera in the lounge and we headed out for a couple of hours.

I’m happy to report that the video was actually really boring. Coco ate her chew treat, drank some water and spent most of her time in bed. She wasn’t even waiting at the door for us when we returned.

I'm so happy with these results.

Coco Visits The Torture Chamber

Hubby and I have had a busy week. Our appointments with CADS and the Gym went well, so far, so good.

Mum and Dad returned from their holiday in Australia and stopped by our place on their way home. Hubby and I made them a cooked breakfast of bacon, hash browns, toast and eggs. It was lovely to see them and they thoroughly enjoyed their breakfast.

Coco was due for a visit to the torture chamber (dog groomer’s). She doesn’t enjoy being clipped and it took many years to find a groomer she was comfortable with. Last time she was clipped we were very disappointed with the results and we later discovered that the kennels had changed ownership. Luckily we found a new dog grooming place where Coco feels comfortable and the groomer did a wonderful job.

I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend.
