Hi I'm Janet. The title for this photo is "A more productive day today but I feel old and sad. And like this is not my life. Not really. Like I will wake from a dream and Gerard will be at the sink doing the dishes and talking crap and making jokes." I used to share this life in the slightly gritty, snake infested northern suburbs of Melbourne with my partner Gerard. I realised last night at a social gathering that I still refer to him as my partner. Present tense. Even though he died in February 2015. And my mum in November 2014. Grief is part of me at the moment. I try to escape it, every way I can think of but it is ever present. Hopefully one day I will emerge. And life will be better.
Also fat, feminist, periodically crazy, somewhat unemployed and over it all.
I like the beach. Reading. And making things. Also (modest amounts of) beer even though it is not ideal with my medication.
Trying to like cooking, gardening and housework again.
I enjoy taking photos and have been going mad with Instagram.
