Why I’ll Never Caddie Again

Chief has been bitten by the golfing bug – and I mean a serious one. 2019 has seen him have umpteen lessons, purchase new equipment, and take his son on a ten-day golfing holiday to Thailand. A couple of weeks ago on our way to the Gold Coast for an overnight stay, I was cornered […]

There was a whole family of […]

Earlier this year our son Thomas proposed to his beautiful girlfriend Christie. Chief and I were so […]

In The Pink – Square in September Day 13

I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep up the pace of posting one photo a day for a whole month, even with the assistance of the schedule button. So now I’m playing catch up with Becky’s square photo challenge with the subject of pink. Here is the Caper White Butterfly on something pink and […]

In the Pink

My blogging buddy Clare of Clare’s Cosmos drew my attention to a  photo challenge issued by Becky who has a super blog The Life of B. After the Weekly Photo Challenge from our lovely friends at WordPress (we miss you guys!) ceased, I’ve been missing that particular blogging community so I’m looking forward to forming new […]

Not the Weekly Photo Challenge

Sadly the WPC is no longer and I  miss the community of like-minded bloggers sharing their take on the weekly photography challenge. Nevertheless, I can still share photos with you and here are the final Bali ones. I have broken all the photography rules in the book – such as the rule of thirds, – […]
