Gotta love new words.. and thanks to Picasso's Muse, 'craptastic' has made it into my vocabulary right now :)
Craptastic - that about sums up this past week! A breakup and ensuing broken heart, a dental visit that is going to cost me $3600, a dream job not coming through... and all in the space of 24 hours.
So it's time for a makeover, a new and secret place to let it all out and not be afraid of who's gonna read it. Normally I'd reckon that starting something new with such a sad-vibed post wouldn't be the best way to initiate this new stage... but heck, right now it's all i can do to write this and not cry.
So I'll start posting on my pals blogs soon, and let you know when I can string a couple of sentences together :) Your comments, messages and texts have meant the world to me at this poo-filled time.. believe me, they're getting me through it all.

Will post again soon with some sunshine: promise.

Yeah, life has really ripped into you lately huh? But at the risk of sounding like a daytime TV host - you are one strong woman and you've got through worse than this! The next few weeks will be tough but you're going to be fine - believe it!!

Oh Shiny! You would not have known this was going on in your life by your vibe and your patience and your smile on Sunday. I am so sorry that things are craptastic for you at the moment, but at least it is only a few letters to make it fantastic.

*big hugs*

Just know my heart hurts for you. Actually my heart just hurts. I think I pulled a heart muscle on Sunday because oh boy can I feel it now :)

Hope some smiles and sunshine come into your day xx

I heard Michael Franti on the radio today and he said we should treat our hearts and souls like gardens - sometimes they need to be picked or cut back, sometimes tended to delicately, sometimes harvested so we can start from the beginning. Now is the time to treat your garden with love. I know the sky is gry and ominous but the sun will shine through soon

Love you W xxx

I can't think of anything wise to say Shiny, but I'm thinking about you and sending you positive vibes.

It can only go up from here :-)

Oh Shiny, I can completely sympathise with your situation - all these things just seem to come at once don't they? The rust doesn't take long to set in as they say.

Thinking of you, sending you love, happy thoughts, peace and positive energy. I hope everything works out - I know it will.

Lots of hugs xoxoxoxo

Hi Shiny

So sorry to hear of your craptastic week. I hope you're coping and feeling a bit better, things can only improve after this.

Oh bugger. Life can really suck sometimes. But it can also be ace, remember that. It tricks you, and punishes you and sometimes it buoys you up and gives you presents.
Love ya courage - again!
