One fine ordinary day

Ordinary. My ideal day looks like any other ordinary day. Preferably a Saturday. Back in Australia it started with a sunrise walk by the beach with friends. They did it for exercise. I really did it for the amazing light, their company and the açai bowl waiting for me at the end. We talk and... Continue Reading →

Emoji(s)

Love them to bits. They can express things quickly in ways words can’t. 😁 is my favourite. But there is also 🥰 and 🥳 and 👍. And let’s not forget these 🙌 and 👏. We used to have quite a capable foreign minister back in Australia with a flair for emoji use. Although it did... Continue Reading →

Zigzag

I’m still slowly going through the old Daily Post Photo Challenges. I’m now up to 1 August, 2014. The challenge was to show our interpretation of zigging and zagging. Here it is. A snippet of street art found in London. It was celebrating the NHS.

Katokoto and a tiger. They would spend the days keeping me company as grown ups did boring stuff, like the grocery... Continue Reading →

Melbourne Road Trips

I’m not a fan of road trips. Before the time of GPS, they were fraught with stress and tension as we tried to navigate where we were going. Then there is the boredom as the wide expanse of the Australian countryside pass us by. We’d listen to music, eat some snacks and sweets as we... Continue Reading →

Christmas 2021

This will be our third Christmas in London. I'm starting to get used to the dark afternoons and the winter chill. I've been dressing in big jumpers and scarves -- cosy and warm. It was just me and my son for our first London Christmas as my husband had to work. The day was bright... Continue Reading →
