Life Lately – It comes in waves


I’ve been hit with a wave of depression. It’s been a while since I’ve been down, my mental health has been pretty good as of late, but these past few days have had me pretty down. I’ve been feeling a little under the weather, so I’m not sure if that is what is making me extra sooky.


I miss my boyfriend. I miss Melbourne, I miss the freedom I have there. I can get out and do things. My anxiety gets the better of me when it comes to Sydney public transport. I wish I could move to Melbourne tomorrow. If I had the money, I’d rent THIS place, but alas, I couldn’t afford it on my own. It’s still cheaper then trying to rent in Sydney!


It’s times like this that I miss Frodo even more. He was always my rock, I love love love Tonka, but there is a big difference between a cat and a dog. Tonka is doing his best though, and I never knew a cat could be so clingy! He’s taken to sleeping in my arms, being held/hugged, and I often wake up with him asleep ON me. I don’t know how he manages to do get positioned without waking me up! Ninja cat!


IMAGES - 1. One of my roses. 2. Yep, I caved and bought myself some new Black Milk, outfit coming up soon! 3. My man & I. 4. Tonka, sniffing my eye. This was the day after I got home from spending 2 weeks in Melbourne, he had to make sure it really was me. 5. Tonka loves cushions as much as I do. 6. Playing around with fonts.

Life Lately – January Musings


This really seems to be my ‘go to’ outfit lately. Top, skater skirt, boots. Though as it’s been warmer I’ve been switching to sandals. The weather has been crazy, from 38°c one day, 25°c the next. Today it was raining. Melbourne had a bit of a heat wave a week ago, a few consecutive days over 40! I was thankful I was home in Sydney in my air con, but I’m flying down to Melbourne on Thursday and well, my boyfriends house doesn’t have air con. I’m praying the weather stays tolerable.

 Tonka has always been a bit of a clingy loving cat, but since Frodo passed away, he’s even more so. This was how I woke up the other morning. I don’t know how he manages to get into some of the positions I find him in, without waking me up! I find my grief comes in waves, sometimes I’m at peace with it, other times I just sit and bawl my eyes out.


 Can you tell I love this skirt!? I’ve been trying to save my money, as most of it has been going towards plane tickets, but I’m so glad I bought this skirt. I’m so tempted to get it in the black too, i’m not-so-secretly hoping it drops down in price more, like the blue did.

I’m a little bit behind on my blogging schedule. I have a Darling Den update coming up soon, but otherwise I’ve been feeling a bit sorry for myself and lazing around due to an epic 10 day period. I don’t tend to get cranky PMS, I get depressed. Sometimes I think I’d rather turn into a mega bitch!

What’s new with you?

Keep on moving!


Sometimes it seems its one step forward, two steps back. It’s frustrating. I’ve come down with some flu and my body just wants me to sleep, and then I feel overwhelmed by the list of things I should be doing instead of resting. I need to take a breath. I need to stress less.


The animals in this household never fail to bring my joy. Betsy is finally realising more and more that she can be a dog, that she can do things and not get into trouble for it. She’s sometimes even pushing those limits, but it’s amazing to see her not be afraid to show personality. She’s loving sleeping on the arm chairs between Mum & Dad. For a dog that would cower every time you went to pat her, it’s nice to know she’s feeling safe & loved.


My fur family are good. Silly family portrait above. I got a new rug for #thedarlingden & both Frodo & Tonks thought it was the best thing ever. Tonka is still so very much in love with Frodo, is always snuggling up to him, kissing him. It’s adorable. When frodo thinks i’m not looking, he’ll sit there and clean Tonkas face for him.


Aussie thinks he’s a cat. He was raised with them before we adopted him, and he has so many mannerisms of a cat. When I let Frodo & Tonka out into my parents section, Aussie goes nuts. Luckily him & Tonka will just play & play & play. Then you’ll find them all snuggled up somewhere together.


Aussie is really a little nutter. He’s so full of beans, and so full of love. It’s been a while since we have had a puppy-puppy, and the love and outright affection is astounding compared to rescue dogs, who take forever to trust you and open up.

Make me feel better, tell me about your fur babies!
