Dreams Don’t Forget
Posted on 27 Sep 2013

A little while ago, my sister and I had lunch at a vintage style cafe. While we waited for our scrumptious lunches to arrive, we wandered throughout the cafe, admiring the eclectic knick knacks that filled almost every conceivable space. And then we came across this suitcase display which I fell in love with. And …Read More

Why I’ve Been Going to Bed Too Late
Posted on 3 Aug 2013

I’m a bookworm from way back but I have to say I have a love hate relationship with books. You see, I love to read a good book – who doesn’t?! But the trouble is when it comes to a good book, I have zero self-control. One more page becomes one more chapter which becomes….well, you get …Read More

A Moment More
Posted on 21 Jul 2013

  Aren’t weekends wonderful? I’ve  just had the most beautiful weekend. For me, I would put it in the ideal weekend category. I got to relax and spend time with my husband, family and friends. And one of the best parts? I got to write. But as wonderful as weekends like this are, I really …Read More

How Far is Too Far?
Posted on 11 Jul 2013

  One of the things I’ve been reminded of late is how easy it is to find out about something at virtually any time. Thanks to technology, a massive amount of information is available at our fingertips. Not sure if it’ll be warm enough for that short sleeved top you’ve been dying to wear? Just …Read More

That Special ‘Go To’ Book
Posted on 25 Jun 2013

  I’ve been having a bit of a Siri Mitchell fix lately. Siri Mitchell is one of my favourite authors and I know that when I pick up one of her novels, much-needed housework will remain unattended. My to-do list won’t be tackled. And some serious sleep deprivation will ensue. But it’s always worth it! …Read More

When Dressing Up Means Being Slapped With A Fine (Or Worse)
Posted on 10 Jun 2013

  We girls love to dress up, right? At least I do every now and then! For many of us, I think it’s fair to say that it’s exciting when we get the chance to dress up for a special occasion. For me, I think there’s a little escapism involved. I love the fact that …Read More

When Things Are Not What They Seem
Posted on 3 Jun 2013

  Do you ever have times in your life where you feel life is becoming just a bit too predictable? Or do you clutch to life’s predictability as one tightly clutches a blanket around them on a cold night? And what happens when everything in life that is well, predictable, is shattered into smithereens? This is what the …Read More

After the Rain
Posted on 5 Feb 2013

During the recent rainfall here in Queensland, I was inspired to take my camera out into the garden. I love seeing droplets of water on flowers and leaves in the aftermath of a shower of rain.     A few remaining frangipani flowers that survived a storm. I could literally keep snapping images like these …Read More

That Elusive Sunset
Posted on 6 Oct 2012

We all love a good sunset, don’t we? But when it comes to photographing one – especially during those precious few minutes before the sun dips beyond the horizon – it can be a little tricky. For me, it’s like trying to walk a tightrope. In which case you need to be able to balance …Read More

The Case of the Missing Soundtrack
Posted on 4 Oct 2012

  There are a lot of movie soundtracks out there that I’m a fan of. Chocolat, The Last of the Mohicans, The Duchess….I could go on and on. So it was extremely disappointing when I tried to track down the soundtrack of a BBC TV series that featured some of the most beautiful music I’ve …Read More
