About Me

Hello! I’m Jane and this is my little corner of the world wide web.

I live on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria with my husband, daughter, teenage brother, a geriatric cat and her arch nemesis our recently acquired rescue cat. It has taken me 38 years to decide what I want to be when I grow up, leading me to enrol in a Bachelor of Journalism in early 2018.

This blog is a dumping ground for all of my thoughts and feels. Writing is my therapy and the one thing I love most is when people tell me ‘me too.’ They have felt what I’ve felt, experienced what I’ve been through, struggled with the same issues. The little community that has grown from this blog has helped me feel I’m not alone and I hope I can do that for others too.

What do I write about here? It’s a bit of a mixed bag really. Becoming a mother and realising I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing. Struggling with mental illness, particularly depression and anxiety. My daughter’s diagnosis of autism when she was two years old and how we have all learnt and grown in the years since.

Chapters from my life before this one, of dysfunction and abuse.  The pain and grief of miscarriage. Things that happen in the world that make me angry , disgusted or frustrated. And all the random bits and pieces of life in-between.

I am almost Jane and these are my stories.
