Share your world – 27th July 2021

We have endured another week of Covid lockdowns, no real end in sight. They are easing restrictions slightly, but still can’t really work or visit family and friends. This is like lockdown 5.2…NSW is a mess and thanks to them spreading it back down to VIC we are dealing with it all again. It’s hard.…

Tropical Getaway – Part 1

Our Tropical Getaway started as a whim and months ago. My daughters thought to go on a cheap week long break to Far North Queensland, my Hubby and I thought it sounded like a wonderful idea and we asked to come along too. As it turned out between lockdowns and other misadventures our planned trips…

Share your world – 23rd February 2021

A week ago we were in another mini lockdown, only 5-days, but it so far did the trick, back to zero cases of Covid. These rolling lockdowns of areas and states and border closures are keeping us all mostly safe, but they are still such a pain. Means we can’t travel far, certainly can’t see…

Happy New Year – 2020

Happy New Year! Can you believe it is 2020? As a kid that was science fiction era, (if you discount Back the future set in 2019, lol). There are no flying cars, well not in mass production. I still have to eat food prepared mostly by humans and there is no world peace. So many…

Mondays Musings…

Last week was spent last-minute editing and writing Christmas articles for Photofocus.com. I wanted everything just about done so I can relax. I think the mission completed. Friday night was a girls night out as we headed to Yarra Glen for the Christmas night market. We spent a relaxing couple of hours just wandering the…

Every week Melanie from Sparks of a combustible mind poses a series of questions, some fun some a little more deep and meaningful. Some weeks they are painfully difficult and really make you think. What is truth? Truth is in the eye of the beholder, much like beauty I guess. Two different sides of war will…

Mid-Winter Escape – Brisbane

I have not seen my daughter and son-in-law in quite a while and sure we talk online and on the phone, but ask any Mum whose baby lives well away from home, it’s just not the same. I needed some facetime. Her birthday was coming up and we decided it might be fun to surprise…
