This week has been up and down for me. In the past few days I've taken some time out to focus on my mental health and to practice self care, and I'm so glad. It's so amazing how just having some quiet time can make me feel so much better. This was definitely reflected in… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!
Having a partner in the army is hard. Having a partner who never talks about their feelings is hard. Having a partner with a Scorpio moon sign is hard. From the amount of complaining I do here on the blog (and in real life too) it can be easy to assume that we are a… Continue reading The Power of Positive Thinking in My Relationship
I love plants so much. They are my favourite thing to go shopping for, and the first thing I like to buy when I'm feeling down. At the moment my house is full of plants. I am lucky to have lots of natural light where I'm living at the moment, so every room has greenery… Continue reading My Boyfriend Bought a Bonsai
I'm trying really hard to love the location that my partner and I are currently posted at. Or at least to like it. We've been here for six months now, which is almost as long as we were at our last location, but it still feels like I haven't settled in here. I've found so… Continue reading I’m Trying Really Hard
Today has been a whirlwhind! The internet has been down all day, and has taken many attempts to get it back. Turns out it is very difficult to tutor, do uni work, or post on this blog without it! I wanted to get this post up much earlier today, but hopefully you will still be… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!
A huge part of being an army wife is spending time away from your partner. and last week my partner and I found out that he is going away again. He's leaving in late June and will be coming home in early August, which means we will be spending roughly six weeks apart. As with… Continue reading He’s Going Away
I've been really sick this past week, a combined effect of changing meds, catching a cold, and it being that time of the month. Because of this I've spent a lot of time at home, doing a whole lot of nothing, and feeling pretty sorry for myself. As a result of this, I spent more… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!
I've been feeling pretty trash lately, so I thought I would take some time out to focus on positive things and share them with you. So today I'm creating an anti-bucket list, which celebrates all the things I have achieved so far instead of setting new goals for myself. I'm going to stay within things… Continue reading My Anti-Bucket List
I woke up today feeling really tired and grumpy, and just like I didn't want to get out of bed. For most people, this might be part of their daily wake up routine, but for me it was a sign that I was going to have a Bad Day. A Bad Day is different from… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: When You Don’t Know What’s Wrong
A is for ANZAC Day, the busiest day of the year for defense members and their spouses alike. B is for Boots and tripping over them when every pair is left lying on the floor. C is for cams, the best looking of all your partner's uniforms. D is for Deployments and never knowing when one might… Continue reading A-Z of Being An Army Wife
Last weekend my partner and I went to the Territory Taste Festival in Darwin. We are always keen to do anything involving food, but I woke up with a terrible cold that day and didn't really want to go, but my partner was just so excited about it that I knew we couldn't miss out… Continue reading My Day at the Darwin Taste Festival
As I write this post, my partner is asleep. He's only been home from work for about an hour but he's already passed out on the couch. I'm not predicting an awakening any time soon. We do have plans to go to the movies at 9, but for him that means waking up at 8:55.… Continue reading He’s Always Asleep!: An Army Wife Struggle
