It was our boy’s birthday. I made him cupcakes with his favourite icing. I sang him happy birthday and watched him smile. “Mum, you are a terrible singer,” he said. He didn’t want a party this year. He said it seemed a little childish. He is now twelve years old and already too grown up […]

Sometimes it is lovely to look up at that blue Australian sky. Via the Daily Post Photo Challenge #21: Sky

Head an hour out of Hobart to Mt Field National Park, and you will be able to access Russell Falls. It is one of the prettiest and probably the most photographed waterfall in Tasmania. It’s an easy 20-minute walk to the falls. There are boardwalks and good tracks most of the way that takes you […]
