    beautifully put Kristy i also believe whatever will be will be, i certainly cant control it but i can definitely help shape it

    for what its worth Buffy78, not knowing your situation, i think thats the right thing to do, reaching out and including your partner. When having to help and support the person they love people rise to the occasion and just get shit done, do what has to be done or achieve great things, its not a sign of weakness

    best of luck to you all in 2018!

    Yup, been doing a lot of thinking and writing of late. Essentially, focus on living the best life you can and being the best person you can be. Investing in yourself can help influence the future but there's also things out of your control - with respect to this, trust that if something's meant to be it will always find its way. And if it doesn't turn out the way you wanted/expected you've still got you, and the life you've built to move forward with

    (now, can Friday 5pm be within my control...? Actually, with no bosses around I dub today Schrodinger's Friday Workplace - did Kristy stay back 'til 5pm or not?)

    When I was in my early 20's my partner and I lost a child to cot death. Exactly 6 months later my partner took her own life. That was more than 25 years ago and I only just told my Mum about it last week. I always thought being vulnerable meant being weak but I've since learned better. Anyone who knows me understands I'm a strong person who has moments of weakness. Im learning to be okay with that.

    Im very fortunate to have a lot of people who care about and love me however Christmas is a strange time of the year for me.

    Some copies of 'the big issue' are great to read on this issue, ive dealt with more then what you should and had a major breakdown bottling things up isn't great for your health/mental health.

    The Toodyay Fire legacy goes on. Many are still affected from that. It is the reason that I ran the Avon Valley Black Dog Rides end in Toodyay.

    My own house was in the fire affected zone. Mum missing for three hours trapped by the fire. It affected many of us.

    I can't talk about personal details of people on here a lot is to remain confidential. There are a lot of people who are affected from national disasters. This does not go away when the media loses focus.

    One thing that stands out from PSB history. Hammerhead organised a support ride and PSB had 55 motorcyclists ride in to support the residents of Toodyay on the first weekend after the fire. This was the first group to arrive like this. Over $2,600 was handed over from these riders to the relief fund.

    This was talked about by residents and so appreciated for a long time. A very practical form of support and help.

    I had a friend from the sw who survived a fire in dwellingup or jarrahdale when he was growing up he is around early 60's now and still recalls how the whole town went i think it was in the 60's, we went for a ride in 1979 he was on the back of my bike as he didn't have one at the time and he pointed out sites of interest there that were affected by the fire.
    I spoke to him recently all these years later and it is still very hard for him to recall that day.
