‘Wombat and Hens?’ you may well be curious. If you were up to date with Wombat Nuptials a couple of weeks ago, you will remember that last weekend was the ‘hens do’ for my daughter-in-law to be. I was extremely excited to be heading away and to be catching up with our off-spring at the […]

Square in September -16
Day 16 of Square in September and this shot was taken earlier this year at Coriole vineyard, McLaren Vale, South Australia. The cellardoor has a beautiful cottage garden seen here with the Vale in the background.
For this week’s photo challenge, explore what it means to find your place in the world. Where’s your safe space? Where do you go when you need to feel inspired or cheered up? Do you prefer to feel cozy and comforted in a smaller town or do you thrive on the buzz of a big […]
Our Growing Family
And it’s not even a baby on the way or a new pet! Chief and I headed to Adelaide last weekend to catch up with our children. We all used to live there but Chief and I fled the nest (way too early) to take up new opportunities in Brisbane – anyway, I digress. We […]

Ten Years Today!
Ten years ago today, along with hubby (the chef) and two children, we left our home country and the people we love more than anything else in the world for a new life in Australia. What a crazy thing to do; who does that? Who takes their children away from their friends and family that […]
I wanted to revisit Day Fifteen: Landscape with a gallery of Australian landscape shots. In contrast to Creakingbones who used dramatic images of the arid outback, here you will see images of the Adelaide Hills and one of South Australia’s wine regions, McLaren Vale.
A few of my shots captured out and about South Australia this Summer. I’ve been experimenting with my new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera. I’m really impressed with the 16 megapixel camera – so much so I haven’t touched my Sony Camera. I hope to get out and about with that for week two of […]
