I want to Remember Today:

I want to remember today..

I want to remember the long sleep in this morning holding the man I love.

I want to remember Dad waking me up in a good mood with his sarcasm wanting me to put his first bets on for the day.

I want to remember the taste of the bacon and maple syrup on fresh made pancakes after craving them for days. 

I want to remember the happiness in my Dads voice when he called to tell me he won over $1800 today.

I want to remember singing with my partner in the car with the sun on my face, wind in my hair and my hand in his. 

I want to remember all the smells of different foods from different cultures at the Grazeland, Melbourne. 

I want to remember Nevaeh and my partner baking biscuits from scratch together in the kitchen.

I want to remember Jie and my partner laughing as they played a game together on the couch trying to guess “ad” songs. 

I want to remember my Dad calling me to order him pizza. 

I want to remember my partner buying the kids dinner after I said that they could make-their-own tonight.

I want to remember my son coming in one last time to annoy me before he went to bed. 

I want to remember my daughter giggling with her friends in the next room as she plays her xbox. 

I want to remember my partner coming in every half an hour or so to “check on me” and give me a kiss while I’m in my room and he’s watching the footy. 

I want to remember today for all that it was.. 

And be thankful for this beautiful life I have with these three incredible human beings!

Teaching Kids Culture

Today was my first day in my new role.

Employed to be a “Koori Cultural Inclusion Officer” one day a week teaching prep to year 9 students Australia’s true history, languages, lores and immersing them in the oldest indigenous cultures in the world customs and traditions is such and honour and a privilege. 

This type of curriculum was never taught to our generation or any generation before ours so it’s exciting to be a part of this brand new education adventure raising this next gen to know of a culture that has been invisible for long enough. 

Today Sarah and I had preps and taught them the story of “Tiddlick the Frog” through reading, visual (video) and puppet making. 

We also taught the students what the colours of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags represent and loved the way they could identify and recall what they learned out at lunch time when looking at the flags flying in the school yard. 

But the best part of my day was teaching the kids about the Aboriginal artefacts including the use of ochre. 

Sarah and I painted our faces and the kids loved the way it changed colour when watching it dry on their arms. 

I am absolutely in awe of Sarah and what she gives the students of the school! She is absolutely amazing to do what she does day in and day out and I’m so proud to now be a part of it also! 

Bring on Tuesday’s

My Mum's Life Mattered

She was Beautiful
And taught me to love myself

She was Understanding
And taught me to embrace people from all walks of life

She was Brave
And taught me how to stick up for myself and others even if that meant standing alone 

She was Generous
And taught me how to give to those who have less than us

She was Loving
And taught me how to love those in this world whom are hard to love

She was Real
And never hid the good, bad and ugly world from us

She was Homeless
And still looked out for those living on the streets with her

She was Happy
And she never let the hardships she endured in her life stop her smile shining through

She was Scarred 
And yet she bravely embraced each new day

She was Scared
And yet found a way to survive years of isolation and abuse

She was Clever
And taught us how to think for ourselves and trust our own judgement. 

She was Empathetic 
And absolutely nothing surprised her allowing us and others to open up to her

She was Powerful
And taught me how to use my voice for those who couldn't

She was Invisible 
And lived in her own light, shining on those around her

She was my Mum
And although the world judged her for living on the streets, having drug/alcohol addictions and selling her body for money to support herself, she was, is and always will be loved by those who actually got to know her and understand her heart.

The lessons you left behind live on through me

Thank you for every one of them

Feeling Jazzy 🎷🎢🍷

Last night my new partner David and I went to Paris Cat Jazz Club in the city. Partly because it was on David’s bucket list and partly to celebrate my new position as a Koori Cultural Inclusion Officer. 

Sitting across from a man who loves me, enjoying a glass of Pinot Nior with some dinner all while enjoying a beautifully soulful jazz band “Cannonballs” made for a perfect night out. 

I still can’t believe sometimes that this is my life now.

Looking forward to all things this year has to offer and also checking off some more things off each of our bucket lists!

Thankful to God for all that was, is and is to come!
