A Matter of Balance

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

Lessons from a Lock-up

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?

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

It’s not Unusual

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

“Surprise”
