Doc and I were lying in the tent, having our morning coffee on the balcony. The morning bird chorus was phenomenal, and we were just watching the lagoon he’d been catching fish in yesterday. Suddenly …
I did Gunshot! I was still on a high when I woke up the next morning. But it didn’t take long before I came down to earth with a thud. Gunshot is definitely not the …
I did Gunshot! I was on such a high. Gunshot is the stuff of legend. Even the chicken track at Gunshot has a deep, long creek crossing. And even the easier of the 2 exits …
After spending almost 5 months in Adelaide on family matters, with only small weekend trips away, I felt the need to do something a bit bigger. “I need to do something challenging” I said to …
There is little more disconcerting in life than waking up, climbing out of your tent for your early morning pee, and being greeted by a round of applause. When you’re all alone. That’s what happened …
We’re preparing for our next big trip away. So today we’ve been out shopping – browsing 4WD and camping shops. And e-bay of course.
Now, I’m a novice when it comes to 4WDing and camping.
My type of shopping is usually very different. Last week my sister was in town, so we went for a trip to the markets – shopping and lunch. What more could a girl want? I bought a necklace. I won’t tell you how much I spent, other than to say that apparently it would have got us a few tanks of diesel while we’re away.

It’s 3am and I’m sitting up in bed with my computer. I can’t sleep.
I’m back in my old house, the kids are out and everything’s quiet. It’s just me and Gypsy, the cat, who’s curled up on the bottom of my bed.
Things are as they used to be – it’s almost like having my old life back.

OK, here comes a rant. Why is it that unhappiness is so interesting?
Tolstoy once said “Happy families are all alike. Every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”

NSW has gone from drought to flood in a very short time. Nothing demonstrates that quite so well as watching the water levels change in rivers, lakes and dams. Have a look at the photos below to see what I mean. They don’t look it, but they are 2 sets of the same view, taken at different times.

OMFG. I just realised I’m going to be a step-mother!!
At least I think I am. If I move in with my partner and his 16 year old son does that make me a step mother? Is it compulsory? Can’t I continue to be just “Dad’s girlfriend”???

I’m moving out of home.
The first time I moved out it was away from my parents. Now I’m moving away from my children.
