It’s the 16th of December today, my Dad would have been 59. It hurts too much to imagine what might have been if my parents didn’t die. It hurts too much to imagine what life would be like if they were still around, what would they look like now at 51 and 59. So it’s [...]

I have been tagged by the lovely Melissa. 5 “If”s that would have made your life somewhat different today. 1. If I had stayed with my first ever boyfriend, my life would be so. different.  He was from, shall we say, the wrong side of the tracks.  In fact, that’s probably being a bit kind.  [...]

Last night while I was going to sleep I realised that I drove past A’s boss’s house, but about an hour and a half after he died.  It’s a bit of a zig-zag I take, going from FDC to uni, necessitated by a river cutting off some roads.  Already, along that route I drove past [...]

Please no number three…

Posted September 11th, 2008 by candi

I’m not usually a superstitious person, but my Mum used to say that deaths happen in threes.  First was the sister of a friend and this morning it was A’s boss.  He went out for a morning jog, came back and was getting ready to go to work when he had a massive heart attack.  [...]

6 years

Tomorrow it will be 6 years since Dad died.  It was very convenient of both of my parents to die around their respective ‘days’. *sigh*

I studied building design when I was 19.  I had always been interested in architecture – from the time that I grasped what an architect was, I knew I wanted to be one.  I used to pore over house plan books and spend hours drawing up my own house.  I loved (and still do) Lego [...]

I dread the start of May. The dread starts around half way through April and I usually work on distracting myself, with a measure of success and so it is gone by the end of May. Why? There are several important dates in May. It used to be a happy month, with Mother’s Day, Mum’s [...]

Showering alone

Posted March 29th, 2008 by candi

I probably get a shower alone once every 3 weeks or so. The other 20 mornings I am sharing the shower with Willow and as many bath toys as she can cram in. Tonight I had a shower by myself, with the bathroom light turned off and the light from the rest of the house [...]

Less mundaneness?

Posted February 28th, 2008 by candi

Is mundaneness even a word?  Spellcheck seems to think so. I want to start writing more about ideas, things that have happened in my past, my dreams, etc.  I want to write about things that I surround myself with, the travelling I’ve done, what has made me into the person I am today. Stay tuned.
