Share your world – 4th February 2020

It feels strange to already be in February. I must admit I was quietly wishing to get back to work, I think I had too much time off in my own headspace. I never really stopped, just didn’t have a lot to put my mind on other things and spent some time dwelling on things,…

Summer Outings – Ikebana flower arranging

I recently attended a class with Desley to learn how to create Ikebana flower arranging. I knew it was quite regimented and very beautiful, but I guess I didn’t realise just how regimented it was. Desley arrived mid-morning and we had a lovely 45-minute drive to Dromana, which gave us a chance to catch up. We…

Summer Outings – Blue Lotus Water Gardens

A new year and some trips to old places not seen for a while, and some never before. We escaped the Melbourne heat and smoke (from all the bushfire blowing our way) and went to Yarra Junction in the Yarra Valley to visit the Blue Lotus Water Gardens , such a magical place to visit as…

Monday Musings…

A mixed bag this week, some highlights and some very low episodes, where do I even start. I did a Post last week about my poor fur baby having a major crisis. We still have no idea whether its bug bite, an allergy, a chemical burn (Still most likely suspect) or something else altogether. She is…

Monday Musings

Another fabulous week; glitz, glamour, honour, pride & suffering. I’ll start with the pain first and get that out of the way. Miss Chloe had minor surgery to remove a growth on her bottom and she also had some teeth removed…poor little might is in discomfort both ends. However, she is doing fine and well…
