I'm a Uniting Church Minister, a single mum of two teenagers, a bad guitar player, a former journalist, a divorcee, and a lupus patient. There's no cure for lupus yet, but there's a lot of drugs that can be used to control it, and my cocktail of drugs has been fine tuned more and more over the years. On bad days, I still feel the most pain in the joints on my left side, but bad days are not very frequent any more. After two years off work, this year I began working at 30% time with Ashgrove West Uniting Church in Brisbane. I've started blogging because, if my lupus flares again, I want an interest (and possible income stream) I can do without actually moving too much!

Kitten
By Iris Carden Collar bell jingles, soft paws pat her ball, the kitten is playing her way down the hall. She wiggles her bum as she targets a pounce, knocks things off the shelf to see if they bounce. She leaps into a lap for a moment or two, but can’t stay...
