The LIFE:CAPTURED Project–December 2014

December 16th, 2014

Read more about Life:Captured here.

2. Which is your favourite chair in the house and why?

My new recliner. Super comfy to curl up in or stretch out.

3. What is the first thing you do in the morning?

Usually check my phone – weather, Instagram, Facebook, then my calendar to check what is on for the day; give my youngest daughter a cuddle & put on my glasses

4. What is the last thing you do at night?

Check my phone – what’s on for tomorrow then journal.

5. What can you see outside your kitchen window?


Our messy backyard. It’s a work in progress. The crappy bomb of a Barina which I wish would go, I hate the thing, takes up room that could be better used. Fruit trees covered in small fruit. 2 weed covered vegie gardens. A clothesline full of clothes. A swing set. A cubby house. A sand pit. The top of the cat run.

6. Name a song that triggers emotions from the past and describe those emotions.

Tusk by Fleetwood Mac. Reminds me of a tough time I was going through and of a friend who helped me thru it & our shared love of Fleetwood Mac

7. What do you feel guilty about right now?

Not getting enough sleep & being a bit too grumpy.

8 What happened today at 6pm?

We were eating tea & watching the news.

9 What’s something that you read today that made an impression on you?

This. Hell anything by Eden. So much so hard. Amazing woman. Met her at DPCon a few years back and was a bit in awe. Managed to grab a pic with her. Felt a bit weird LOL but she is so cool.

10 When was the last time you cried, and why?

Hmmm, the other night watching crappy videos online. Really cried, a few months back before Miss A was born. Blaming hormones for that & a touch of depression

11 What do you look forward to the most on a Friday evening?

Kids being in bed, hubby out at a mates. Crafting time for Mum complete with crappy food (lately it’s been chocolate icing), a hot drink and what ever crap is on TV

12 Are you looking forward to Christmas? Why or why not?


Yup mainly for Miss K, she is so super excited. Also Miss A’s first Christmas

13 How do you feel about the holiday season?

Love the warmer weather, the yummy food, and spending quality time with family & friends. The commercialism – not so much. I hate having to buy gifts and would rather handmade but not everyone agrees. Hate being asked what I want cause I don’t really need anymore crap (unless it’s scrapbook related lol)

14 Do you remember a time when you felt lonely? Can you describe it?

When I was with my ex cause no one wanted to invite him places therefore I missed out. Felt sad, alone & unwanted.

15 What do you and your family like to do on a Saturday morning?

Sleep in, spend lazy mornings in bed just chatting. Slow breakfasts. Sometimes going to the market.
