It has been an unsettled night of sweats, tummy grumbles and fog. On waking, one eye pops open and notices a feint fog in the distance. The mind seems so detatched it hasn’t appreciated the fog is caused of its own doing. Determination and responsibilities see me rise but as the morning kicks in, so does the nausea and eye shakes, the blurring. The head pain increases. Considerations for regular pain relief happens but after the expected wait time, its administration seems pointless as the headache has merely increased along with the stomach gurgles, nausea and fog. The fog now … Continue reading OPINION | Migraines

It’s seems rather surreal that the English weather has followed me over to Australia with the worst rain in several years and a chance of snow on the hills!

Pretty much everyone I have had the opportunity to meet with over the last 3 days have been very inquisitive about which way Britan will vote on the EU today! It seems there is no escaping Great Britain down under. There are still traces of the Queens’s birthday celebrations,… Continue reading Making healthy normal

This morning, as I was perusing through my Facebook timeline, I happened upon an article that a lovely friend shared. It was entitled “24 Things Women Should Stop Wearing After Age 30”, and it triggered Maximum Eye-Rolling from everyone who took the time out to read it. Written by Kallie Provencher for RantChic.com, this “article” (I use the term loosely) highlighted things such as “leopard print”, “graphic tees”, and “short dresses” (because “By this age, women should know it’s always better to leave something to the imagination”). Kallie, it seems, has a number of opinions… Continue reading 24 Things Women Over 30 Should Wear

Age by decade: A term designating someone’s age by decade. For example, a septuagenarian refers to someone in his or her seventies (age 70 to 79). The prefix in such terms is always from the Latin.

She’s waiting for her envelope, in which sits a letter, telling her how many years she has left to live. The policy was created in response to overpopulation. So, age is no longer an increasing number, it’s a decreasing one. And her time left has been determined by a slew of tests. Her countdown is predicated on exam results and the duration of her life will be decided on what “the rulers” deem to be her: merits, intelligence, looks and charisma. So far, so contemporary. This disturbing, dystopian look at society was the basis of… Continue reading All The Time In The World?
