Born in QLD Australia, to a middle class family; I guess you could say I was raised in a carefree yet strict manner. From an early age I found it hard to socialise with others, and quite often preferred my own company. I discovered very fast that I had more of an affinity with animals rather than the people around me.
I moved to NSW at the age of 7 with my two elder sisters (10+ years my senior), who I always wished I could have been closer to in age; and my parents. While they did there best, they faught on most days (but always made sure that they told me that they loved me and provided me with most of the things I wanted).
At the age of 14 I decided to rebel against my parents, my family and the world; I didn't get this rebellious mostly self destructive side out of my blood until reaching 23 years of age. That's when I got the biggest and most unexpected surprise of my life, I was soon going to be a mum.
No, I wasn't prepared, nor was I ever what you would call a maternal type. Early on I had decided I mostly likely wouldn't have children, but saying that is one thing. And almost 10 years down the track (with a few hiccups along the way) I now have two lovely children; a man that works hard and loves typical Aussie bloke past times i.e. fishing, beer, 4WD's, BBQ's and his TV.
Now in my early 30's I guess you could say I have grown into a semi stable, semi sane, good hearted, opinionated yet compassionate woman; combined with a love for poetry, art, helping others and learning; I have always dabbled with art and poetry mostly for my own therapy. However now I find myself with some spare time, I decided to take a re adventure into my creative side and share it with you all.
