Who would have thought raising such a little lamb would have such a big impact. She came into our life at barely two weeks of age, after being abandoned by her mother. I blogged about her here when she arrived.
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
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

She’s taken a particular fondness to my bay leaf bush which up till now seemed indestructible and she seems to … More No Apricots or Lemons, just a happy lamb
Overthinking tossing and turning wheels of life engage. Lying still, breathing fast like a sparrow in a cage. Trapped tight and wired mind prepares to fall.
You turn me on I come to life and give you all you need. Turn me off the spark is gone nothing left to recede. The last few days we’ve been hit with power outages. Strong winds have brought down trees and knocked out cables in many areas close to where I live.
Australia has a reputation for having some of the fiercest creatures in the world. We have deadly snakes, stingers and the odd croc up north, but sometimes things aren’t always as they seem. What can appear downright scary on the surface can be pretty harmless, if we’re game to look closer. Still, I have to … More Fierce Creatures
