It was a couple of weeks ago when R received a text from Brighton Antique Dealer. She would not be able to attend any of my birthday functions as she fallen, stepped on a stone in her building's courtyard, and broken her femur bone. After a couple of days in hospital, she was moved to an expensive and brand new private rehabilitation hospital. We visited her last week, travelling there by tram because it was the easiest option.

Have you ever worn a speedo in the bath?
My bathroom here is way too small to have a bath in it BUT, I do have an outdoor shower…..

Here is one of my favourite moments in Star Wars Episode 4...
How on earth did I miss this? I haven’t been as good at checking out the products from AussieBum lately. I have quite a bit of underwear and if I look at their site I just buy stuff which I don’t need.

Narratives about identity and experiences are certainly powerful, necessary, therapeutic, and transformative. Yet I’m struck by their limitations. Knowing about someone’s lived experience of mental illness is important but it is a starting place, not the final outcome of advocacy and health promotion efforts. Discrimination still persists within mental health organisations and services who I’m sure have heard all the stories. Key to making stories matter is translating the stories into practices, actions and change at all levels from the individual, community and systems level. The inadequacy or unsustainability of interventions will not shift from stories alone. We must make stories matter. (emphasis shifted)...
Third day of the speedo close ups, how are you guys surviving this?
So far I like all three speedo close ups.
