“Hero” cat: Cat saves boy from dog

Cat saves boy from dog

from a ‘Google’ (my “filing system to rescue me from sheer utter chaos” – thanks “Big G”)

And by that I mean God (far more than Google)… but then perhaps I should thank both …


Unsung/quiet, yet very brave “hero” cats

Sharing, as he/she can’t speak for themselves


Finding new ways of telling a story

Sharing, supporting, informing, enlightening, œentertaining (??), impacting, encouraging, empowering, enriching, challenging, igniting, uplifting (and perhaps even) inspiring

(enough there for now, c)

* not bridges (thank goodness)!

Well my family and friends say I’m “safest” just writing and sharing


“Driven to share, uplift, encourage and (perhaps even) inspire”


Time for a rest


Don’t worry about the world ending today

it’s already tomorrow in scenic and tranquil ‘little’ New Zealand

Ten Thousand Days

8 years ago today Shelly’s life was forever changed by that freak accident in our kitchen.
We learned how fortunate we were that it didn’t take her life.
I think back to those early days where she was unable to walk or talk, and I am amazed at the progress that she has continually made to get to today.
All of the patience and hard work that she puts into improving still is so remarkable and inspiring for me to watch.
Every single day she diligently works on exercises to help her brain continue to improve.
I learn so much from how she chooses not to dwell on what she can’t do anymore, instead focusing on how blessed and grateful she is to still be here with us.
Her grace and positive attitude has enabled me to understand what truly matters.
My prayer is that the PTSD that can trigger…

Willing Yourself To Win

Sunday the 20th of December marked a big change in my working life, and quite possibly, my personal life. Yesterday afternoon was my last working shift of doing a job I never really thought I was capable of doing. Three and a half years later and I’ve proved myself wrong. During my time of working with people who have severe learning disabilities, I’ve learnt a lot about myself and even more about a small proportion of the general public regarding their attitudes towards the people I have supported.

It’s been a huge learning curve for me personally. Along the way I’ve met some fantastic people and made lifelong friends, which is something I can take away with me and keep with me for the remainder of my life. Last night I supported the gentlemen by administering their medication and tucking most of them up into bed. My last words to…
