It’s not very often I write a blog post about food but last night in my kitchen everywhere I looked I saw food in circles. And I thought it was so apt for Frank’s Tuesday Challenge: Circle that this post is the result. Everything comes full circle. Let me elaborate.
Today I took a trip into the past. Mum’s house is still vacant, despite her passing over a year ago, but finally preparations are happening in earnest to sell it.
Have you noticed all the good intentions doing the rounds at the moment? January seems to be the time for declaring New Year resolutions and making big plans for the year ahead. I guess it’s only natural. Many people have declared themes, focus words and challenges for the year ahead. I’m impressed, inspired and also, … More Lull before the Growth
Happy new year everyone. As I write this we’re camped at Yanakie, one of my favourite seaside spots. It’s been an unexpected mini summer break. Barely three days ago I rang and was told there was a vacancy, on the exact days I wanted. I took this as a good sign. On the way to … More Signs by the Sea
“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” That quote from Forrest Gump is so apt for this post as, just like a box of Favorites, the year has been (though mostly good) a mixed one.

We went to St Kilda overnight, a trendy Melbourne suburb by the bay. Whilst a specific post on the delights of St Kilda is in the wings, this post is more … More A Musical new Direction
I love this post of Gabe’s, not because he’s shared my latest animal antics post or creatively remastered my photo of nature’s steps, but because he touches on things that matter to me. The connections we make through our blogging, the way it changes us and the unexpected experiences that open up to us through … More Finding Peace in a new Perspective – (Almost) Unsalvageable
With all of our dramas and flooding issues at home lately, life’s been a bit full on. But enough’s enough! We all have our hard times so a big step back is sometimes necessary. Time out from the serious stuff where we can take a few deep breaths and focus on something lighter. What better … More Cheeky Life Lessons
It’s been a challenging weekend to say the least. Unrelenting rain in Melbourne, extensive flooding inside, saturated carpet, a punctured tyre, ripped couches and naughty dogs have tested my endurance. BUT, believe it or not, amidst all this mayhem is a feeling of acceptance and quiet peace. Okay, I’ll admit, initially I wasn’t so calm … More Serene and Safe
