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

It was our 23rd wedding anniversary and, for something different, we thought we’d celebrate it with a night on the town. Normally we escape to the spa countryside of Daylesford … More The Anniversary Tourists
