Share your world – 27th October 2020

I felt like I was just saying once we hit Halloween, the year is pretty much over. And…it’s almost Halloween, but I feel it will be a lack lustre affair this year. Oh well. Such a shame it’s a full moon (I believe) and a Saturday night. Still thanks Corona for making the best of…

Share your world – 20th October 2020

I tend to measure the year with certain milestones, once we hit Halloween the weather starts to become really nice, mid Spring is here days are warm and flowers are everywhere. Then we have Melbourne Cup (A big international horse race), then the year is done and dusted, Christmas is just around the corner. Well,…

Share your world – 14th October 2020

It’s been a kind of a weird week, full of ups and downs. Dad has been gone a week already. I have been trying to sort out memorial stuff, legal stuff, banking stuff and all the rest of it, so Mum doesn’t have to. Some stuff hasn’t been too bad, so is ridiculous. I was…

On Tuesday my Dad passed away, he had been sick for years now and he went peacefully in his sleep. I have spent the last two days arranging his body, his cremation, his service and telling friends & family members (as well as Mum). I have also been going through old photos. I didn’t realise…

Of course, that could be a false sense of control? But then, often life is a false sense of control anyway, right? Oh well…let’s…

Another week means another Share Your World, this time SYW Meets Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix. We have gone into another three week (potentially longer) lock down, it’s already been five weeks. The natives are getting restless, we are having silly protests, people arguing that being in lock down is punishment and…

Share your world – 1st September 2020

Today marks the change of seasons, but in reality Spring (or true Spring) is still a little way off yet. However, it does make a marked difference when the sun is shinning and there is hope and promise in the air, for warmer days. This week’s SYW is another Harry Potter themed from the Goblet…

Time for another instalment of Share Your World meets Harry Potter. This week it’s the Prisoner of Azkaban. This is where things start getting really interesting in the HP world, I believe… One of my favorite gifts that Harry Potter received came from the Weasley Twins; and was “Mr. Mooney’s Marauder’s Map”. This magical document…

Share your world – 18th August 2020

Last week we started a Harry Potter version of Share Your World, this week it’s Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, these questions have been such fun and a nice distraction from the current world happenings… Harry Potter can speak to snakes. If you were able to have conversations with any one animal, what…
