But then again, when the bride is a very talkative person, this shouldn’t surprise you!   The bride is often the person who steals the limelight on a wedding day. But truthfully, it’s not hers alone. This… [Continue Reading]

  • Will You Marry Me?

      It had become a bit of a tradition to go to the coast for the day after my exams. So it wasn’t out of the ordinary to organise a day of shopping, beach and dinner. But, it had been 7 years! I had finished my studies – something my parents had insisted on before getting… [Continue Reading]

  • 2560 Days Dating

      Mere days after our relationship began, we went on holiday. And in the car, I had an epileptic fit. I messaged him to tell him and he typed out a crude word which, to this day, I remember where I was standing in my gran’s house when I read it. I suddenly wondered, being… [Continue Reading]

  • In Limbo

      Ever had a cancelled flight? A long layover?

The hands move slowly, too slowly. You might wander aimlessly though the shops, picking… [Continue Reading]

      I can’t believe that you are no longer my baby. Although I’ve known it for a while, it’s now staring me in the face as you clock over to 2!   So much has happened since that Wednesday morning two years ago. We had spent the weekend before wondering whether you’d make an appearance,… [Continue Reading]

  • Refining in the Fire

      If you’re anything like me, I love a good “heartstring-tugging” story. It’s a good one if it taps into my emotions and maybe makes me cry a little. Why?   Because it’s how life goes. I can relate. I can engage. I can empathise.   When I write, I get more feedback on posts… [Continue Reading]
