For the past four months, I have been renting a little cottage east of Adelaide’s city centre in the suburb of Dulwich. Much of the suburb’s residential properties date back to the 19th century and are heritage-listed. The streets are shaded by avenues of jacaranda trees making it a rather pleasant place to live. My […]

A Break for the border
Australia has been spared the COVID-19 impact felt by the rest of the world. We are extremely fortunate although that is no comfort to the families of the 910 people who have lost their lives to this terrible virus. If you are a regular follow (thank you) you will have read that our family experienced […]
I’ve been feeling out of sorts, since Monday the 1st of February 2016 to be precise. That’s 1,862 days – I worked it out. The day Chief and I left Adelaide for a new life in Brisbane – the day I checked out of being a hands-on Mum and the day I became not me. […]
When is a wedding not a wedding?
When there is an outbreak of Covid-19 and the South Australian State Premier enforces a six-day ‘circuit-breaker’ lockdown, that’s when. I kid you not! You’d think that you were in some kind of cheesy Netflix series, but I honestly could not make this shit up. The details: We woke on Monday morning to the news […]
Happy anniversary to us! This week marked the 15th anniversary of when we first arrived in Australia and I have to pinch myself when I look back and see how far we’ve come. The 10th of August 2005; we arrived in Sydney having taken a two-week journey travelling via New York, LA, and New Zealand. I was well and truly […]
Wombat and Hens
‘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 […]
Our Glorious Kangaroo Island
A very dear friend and fellow blogger has just shared a post on her experience of holidaying on Kangaroo Island just as the bushfire disaster was unfolding. The previous week Rosemary posted about the start of her holiday on the island; it was lovely to read and it made me feel as if I was […]
It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me; I’ve had visitors and trips away and life was busy for a time. I met my parents in Adelaide, who were there to catch up with their grandchildren. We spent a few days at Deep Creek Conservation Park on the Fleurieu Peninsula which lies a couple […]
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.
This is all a bit sad and unexpected I have to say, and as 3Rs of Retirement states, you’ll miss us when we’re gone! It’s been a great challenge to ‘have a go’ at and a wonderful community. I’ve really enjoyed taking part over the last couple of years. And so to my favourites. This […]
