Waiting For A Train

Still no mail. One way or the other: ring my doorbell, postman, ring my doorbell.

In the meantime. Here's the thing about living in an urban area:

Everything is right there. Our playgroup is so close we can walk.
However, on the way, we walk right past a strip club.

Also: our favourite park is right next to my favourite café.
However, it is also right next to a prison.

And also: we can go and eat our sandwiches at the train station anytime we like, since it is only about 150 metres from our house.
However, on the way, we cross about six super-dangerous ultra-busy roads. (Okay, two).

That's what we did yesterday, and and I feel like this picture sums up my life right now. Sitting, and watching, and waiting for something to happen.

Ring my doorbell, postman, ring my doorbell.


  1. been thinking about you, girly. hang in there.

  2. Ugh. C'mon postman. As my wonderful uncle used to write on the back of envelops 'Postman, postman, don't delay, do the rumba all the way'. Hope you get news soon and it leaves you feeling ready to rumba.

  3. Yes, thinking of you. Those juxtapositions where you live are something. Life. Sigh.

  4. Claudia, I've been thinking about you. Praying for good news to arrive soon.

  5. Waiting is brutal. Thinking of you.

  6. Waiting - ugh. Your post reminded me of that description in Dr Seuss's Places You'll Go where he talks of "The Waiting Place" (not the kind of place where you want to be - it's not you at all, you're not "that kind of guy") - so, praying that you get news soon (and it does indeed lead to boom bands, and banners flip-flapping and all the rest of it) x

  7. Thinking of you often and hoping for good news soon soon soon.

  8. I hope you get Postman Pat!

    Thinking of you... and loving that pic. We live in a place that sounds lot like this -- trains all around us. Some days it seems like the most awesome thing ever. Some days I'm like ack, this is nuts.

  9. Been thinking of you and your wait for news. Waiting is agonizing.

    Prisons aren't so bad, right? You could use them as excellent teaching material. "See that man there? He didn't eat his vegetables and only wanted cake." (Completely kidding.)


Over to you!
