Meet Me On Monday - Nov 21st

It's been struggle-town here over the last couple of days. I'm booking in to see my former doctor in the city, to get a referral to a specialist who might be able to give us some answers about Tiger's behaviour. 

I'm not happy with the lack of support, and attitude of the school, counsellors, and doctors in this town and I'm glad that our move will bring us closer to the city and some help for my girl. 

It's hard feeling like my girl is missing. Like I'm staring at my girl but she's not mine anymore.

But I can't write it all right now, so I'm taking refuge in some simple things, and keeping the tangled mess of my thoughts aside until I can unravel it.

I'm joining in with another Meet Me On Monday with Never Growing Old.

So piece by piece you can learn a little more about me, and the face behind the page.

This weeks questions:

1.  I wish I had more time to _________?

Sew. I love to create beautiful pieces but at the moment the time needed to finish a project is more than I can give. 

2.  What is your favorite kind of soup?

Potato and leek with crusty bread for dipping.

3.  Where will you eat Thanksgiving dinner? 

We don't have Thanksgiving in Australia.

4.  What is your favorite time of day?

Morning tea time.

5.  Did you start Christmas shopping yet?

Yes. In fact I started a couple of months ago, just picking up things as I discovered them and storing them away. But I haven't written a list for the kids or decided when I will actually do the rest. Living in the country sucks, because I have to get all my shopping done at once or online.

Feel free to leave a comment with your answers.

I look forward to Meeting you, too!

  2. Enjoyed your post. I love to sew, also. But I love to do too many things, so I never have the time to do a major project. Shame on me. Your soup sounds good. Have a nice week.

  3. I know what you mean about living in the country & trying to do Christmas shopping. Thank goodness for online stores. At least that way it can get delivered to your door :)
    Have a great week!

  4. @Tere - thanks for following!

    @ArtyMarti it's hard to find time and space to sew like I want to - maybe when we shift I will find some space instead of a corner of my bedroom and the kitchen table!

    @Jo-anne I love online shopping, but this year I can't find what I want for a reasonable price! Will have to squeeze in a city trip before Christmas I think!
