New Years resolutions to stop and smell the roses

Aah, new year’s resolutions. I don’t make them. Well, except for now, and not just to give me something to write about (though that’s one of them). So many times I’ve said to Doc (or to my girlfriends, children or whoever), “we really should ….”. There are so many things “we really should” that I’d …

Miniature roses

I promise this blog won’t turn into one just about my garden, but lately it seems that’s where my energy has been focussed. That and taking photos of babies, but I know you don’t want to see that here. In a couple of days I’ll tell you all about my luxury cruise on Sydney Harbour.

Stop and enjoy the daisies

The ‘busyness’ of life sometimes just takes over, and the importance of just relaxing can get lost. I’ve just realised that it’s been over a month since I wrote anything on this blog, because I’ve just been ‘too busy’. It’s not that I haven’t been travelling, but my travel has been up and back between …

Feature photo – Red Sunset

Sunsets in Australia truly are the most beautiful in the world. With our beautiful trees, wide open spaces and endless skies sunsets of all hues are possible. This was taken on our farm in rural NSW, proving that you don’t have to go far out of the city for magnificent scenery. This is an exclusive …

Cows are more dangerous than sharks

How much do we really know about cows? Sure, they hang out in groups and follow the leader, but then again, so do the Mafia.

Jumping castles, inflatable mazes and art – more Sydney Festival

Another Sydney Festival has come and gone – at least for me, the Festival continues until 27 January. I saw a few shows, wandered around city, jumped on a jumping castle and wandered through an inflatable maze. And, as always, I marvelled at the majesty of language used to describe what is happening. Or should …

Sydney Festival time

Christmas is over and we’re back from the farm. Next on the list of summer traditions is the Sydney Festival. Every year a girlfriend comes up from Canberra to stay, and, along with a few other friends, we head out to festival shows and events. It’s not just the Festival, the whole atmosphere of the …

Flowers

I got a new lens, so of course I’ve been out using it. What’s better than flowers to practice using a close up micro lens. It might not be spring any longer, but summer flowers are just as beautiful. Here are some of the photos.

How to pack for a camping trip (with luxuries)

“Everything has to have more than one use” is Doc’s mantra when we go camping. He also says that they have to be tough and unbreakable. I disagree (no surprises there), I have some single use items (and some breakable ones) that are absolutely essential, but which until we started travelling together Doc wouldn’t have …

Singing in the car makes you happier

I was caught singing in the car again. “So what?” you might well ask “Everybody sings in the car.” Well, yes, lots of people do. But I have a convertible and I had the roof down. And I can’t hold a tune – I can’t even get near it. When my kids are in the …
