There are many things I dislike about Australia but also lots of things to love. One thing I love is our language. We are so influenced by America and England, yet still maintain our own […]
I’ve had the worst week in my entire life this week. OK, maybe the second worst? But it is debatable. Top 5 easily. What helps me cope is distractions like Go Fug Yourself. Is it […]
As I lay here post surgery, scouring the interwebs looking for something good to read, it is so good to know that Dooce is back. Three cheers.
One of my rules for my collection of Over 40 Style blogs is that the person has to post relatively frequently. However recently I have been questioning the value of posting frequently, over waiting until […]
Since May 2015, I have been under treatment for breast cancer (honestly, it hasn’t been that bad). My lack of posting here doesn’t reflect how difficult the treatment has been. I am ok. I have […]
A friend gave me a copy of Marie Kondo‘s book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying. There’s a really good summary here of the book and the key principles behind the art of tidying […]
I’m not planning on dying any time soon, but I have felt the need to write a bucket list recently. I’m kind of curious as to what would be on it since I’ve never thought […]

I like keeping a list of relaxation ideas because whenever the urge to relax hits, I always forget what to do. Go for a walk outside with an audiobook or music. Swim. Do my Total […]
Things I am grateful for…. Total Immersion I had stroke correction classes in the Total Immersion technique in February/March and have been practising ever since. The joy in gliding through the water is huge. It […]
Need cheering up? Here are my favourite music videos that make me smile. This Sia video has been on high rotation in our household: The dancer (Maddie from Dance Moms) is so athletic! We try […]
I’ve been browsing the blogs in this year’s Bloggies. Some new (to me) web-sites that I’ve checked out, and I reckon are worth visiting are: The Fox is Black – Wow. Wow. Wow. Beautiful design […]
Some seriously beautiful photos at Canvas of Light. I love the sound of the 14 day tour of Angkor Wat, Cambodia that Daniel is taking in November this year (see here). Unfortunately, there’s a few […]
Another site I have spent hours on: The Customer is Not Always Right.
I have lost hours looking at all the images at Pour 15 Minutes D’Amour. So many amazing vintage images.
