I walked Harry yesterday, my regular morning walk through the wetlands. My mind was filled with worries. I won’t go into details. We all have them, personal stresses that sometimes overwhelm and that nagging feeling that something is missing in our life.
When I started my blog I never thought much beyond my writing. I never thought that I’d make the connections that I have and that those connections would become friends. And I never dreamed thst I’d meet them in real life. But that’s what’s happened. Last week I met two bloggers and I feel like … More Making Memories
It’s Valentine’s Day and my husband’s gone again. Left in a taxi two days ago, bags and all. For the next two weeks he’s working interstate. It’s the longest we’ve spent apart.

We left our kids for five days. Took off camping by ourselves, just hubby and I. But before you think we’re totally irresponsible parents let me explain.
Yesterday (Friday) my son turned 16. It was a busy day and my focus was on him and trying to make his day special. So I was unaware of what unfolded in the centre of Melbourne.
A world without animals would be exceptionally dull. At least in my books. I grew up with cats. We adopted many strays that ventured into our back yard. Well at least I did. I’ll never forget the day my dad sat in the kitchen and told me there was no way the cat was staying. Behind … More My world of Animals
