About Unload & Unwind


WelcometomyblogWelcome to Unload and Unwind my name is Jenni not Trouble – don’t listen to my family they’re all a little crazy.  Other than me OF COURSE, I’m the only one who is able to take the high road and do so with great pride.  This pride has sadly led to many a tumble and slip but my wonderful and patient husband has never let me down when it comes to breaking my fall.  

I suppose the thing most people notice about me [other than my charm and good looks – shh mum or I’ll put you in a home] is my generosity of spirit and my deep belief in sharing my opinion with anyone who will stand still long enough to hear it.

If you’re busy and don’t have time to stop and listen don’t fret I’m nimble and can expound even as I chase you down the street.  I’ve recently started this blog for all those who are unlucky enough not to have the benefit of my erudite opinions in person and I would dearly love to see you at Unload and Unwind again.

Custom-Home-Library-Design-580x471So come on in and sit a spell, we’ve all sorts of different things for you to look at. You’ll find the Category list in the sidebar if you want to browse or the home page will give you an overview of the most recent posts. Please make yourself at home and feel free to have your say [I certainly do] about any of the pieces you read.  

I have always loved to write and eventually made a career out of it. Due to a number of reasons – which I’m quite sure will be covered over time I haven’t done as much of it recently outside of the work that I do. I’m hoping that as this blog grows so will I and I would love to have you along for the journey.

    • Thanks Elizabeth for taking the time to visit. This cyber family of writers we’ve built at WordPress gives so many [including me] more scope and more interaction with their craft and this world than they would without it.


    • Thanks – I can’t seem to lose the habit of writing as if I’m chatting to someone or if I’m ranting and soap-boxing as if I’m making a speech. Oh each to their own. Looking forward to seeing you round the blogasphere.


  1. Hi Jenni! Thanks for not only stopping by my blog post but also choosing to follow! That is a wonder in my book! I love to share what God is teaching me. It is part of the ministry that I am doing with the bible.org family. Each day I write about something from the scripture reading for the day. My hope is that it will encourage and enlighten those that choose to follow and read.
    Again many thanks. Will look forward to seeing what your thoughts are!



    • Thank you for taking the time to visit. It is always wonderful to read the posts of those who have a passion in their life and wish to share it. I look forward to reading your posts in the future. Jenni

  4. I was wondering where you had got to yesterday. I thought maybe there was more family drama and you really had faked your own death to go and live in the mountains haha, Glad to see your back 🙂


  5. Thank you for following “A Way With Words.” I find great joy in writing and my joy is made more complete when people read what I’ve written. While I write primarily about faith & mental illness, I am always looking for new topics to address. If you have anything you’d like to see, please let me know.

    You have a very soothing and confident writing voice. I can see how you would draw many readers. May you be blessed as you are a blessing to others.

    • Ronovan – I’m sorry it’s taken so long to get back to you – I’ve been AWOL for about 4 weeks but if you are still happy for me to proceed with the nomination I’d be thrilled. Thanks for taking the time to think of me and once again sorry about the time it has taken to get back to you.


  8. Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for reading my work and following my blog! Don’t hesitate to comment on anything you like. You might even win some leprechaun gold…, but not likely.

  11. Jenni, loved your blog on ‘How we stole Australia’, I came across it looking for info on who the cartoonist is that did the cartoon beginning with “I’m sick of these bloody boat people coming…..” I want to get his/her permission to use the image for a exhibition presentation in August, 2015, can you help me with the name, please?
