Did someone tilt the screen? I’m standing still but the world’s spinning around me. I’ve been battling an annoying case of vertigo for about five months now. Getting out of bed, looking up, lifting, bending down, reaching high for stuff, driving … ordinary, simple things that make me feel as though I’m upside down on … More A Matter of Balance
I have a confession to make. I’m not a very good mum. In fact I’m neglectful, thoughtless and sometimes I wonder how I could possibly deserve the awesomeness in my life. How else can I explain leaving Harry in the car overnight, for thirteen hours?
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
Lightning flashed as we stood looking up into the dark evening sky. Mother Nature was being feisty. Then, like she was playing a game of ping pong, two meteors appeared, directly below each other and I watched, mesmerised, as they shimmied across the sky and disappeared. That was last Saturday, also the time of the … More Champagne, Roses and Wrong Turns

It was a different sort of bushwalk, even by Australian standards. I thought we might see some wildlife but I wasn’t expecting this. Giant butterflies, a prehistoric looking dragonfly, a funny looking emu and a kangaroo that looked more like Robocop than Skippy. You meet a lot of characters in the bush but I’ve never … More Steel a Look
Remember sweet Lamby? Our rambunctious little lamb, who left for greener pastures in the country six months ago. She’s baa ack. Only she’s not quite so little these days. And she seems to have adopted some baaad arse behaviours. She’s a fully fledged sheep, with a girth as wide as a woolly mammoth and a … More No Sheepish Matter
We’ve seen some strange things on our travels. I guess that’s what makes travelling in Australia so interesting and so much fun. It’s not often you see kinky art in country paddocks but at Mt Cole State Park these two are permanently intertwined. This is in the same paddock. Makes you wonder what the artist … More It’s not Unusual
Don’t rub me up the wrong way. I can be feisty and a bit temperamental, but stroke me just right and I’ll purr in your hands. I’m not overly fussed about pedicures and manicures but I do like the odd pamper. Oh yes, I’m a sucker for a massage. Must be a female thing. Give … More Female and Fabulous
