Do you sometimes beat yourself up about things you can’t do? Instead of focusing on the things you can do. When life throws you a curve ball do you roll with it, grabbing it with both hands or do you duck and turn away?
It’s humpday Wednesday and I woke today with an overwhelming urge to go wandering. Maybe it was the thought of my new job at Bushwalking Victoria, which I start in just over a week. Or maybe it was stepping outside and being greeted with this fiery canvas in the sky. Regardless it didn’t take long before … More Whimsical Walkabout Wednesday
Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? Lamby has eaten (almost) everything. She’s sucked the sage, devoured the mint, deflowered the lemon tree and stripped my yard barren. Not only has she devoured the herbs (minus the rosemary) she’s mowed better than any grass cuter ever could and become a master … More A wish to Grow and Bloom
Have you ever had a dream so vivid you can still recall it decades later? I have one. In mine I was standing at crossroads, literally, deciding which road to take.
I had a dream the other night that I left my bag on a tram. The doors slammed shut and I couldn’t get back on. As the tram trundled off I ran after it, frantic, knowing that my purse, my phone and identity had all gone with the tram. And I wouldn’t get it back.

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. He was away at the same time last year as well, when I wrote Loving my World. What’s with the timing? I mean, doesn’t his … More Loving the Connection
When you look at yourself in the mirror what do you see? If you’re anything like me you’ll see a changed version of yourself every time. So often it depends on how I wake up and the mood I’m in. There are days I feel accepting and even beautiful and there are days when I … More Mirror of my thoughts
Careful what you wish for. A few days ago, while putting together my post on Solitude I wrote “Sometimes I think I’d be happy living on a deserted island”. I ended up deleting that line but the thought must have stuck. Yesterday the internet was out, the phones were on the blink and I wasn’t … More Cookies, sea salt and a Desert island
