Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: The morning after

Happily ever after….the day after my daughter’s wedding looked a bit like this… I couldn’t sleep in despite the huge day we’d had, so I got up and wandered around the marquee picking up bottles, collecting glasses, enjoying the presence of the wild brumbies and kangaroos, not to mention the shaft of early morning light. I replayed the wedding and…

Contemplation – Week 14: Challenges

Hello! I really enjoy Desleyjane’s weekly contemplation posts as they make me think about things – which I suppose is what contemplation is all about!  Each week desleyjane gives us a prompt from her journal and this week it is: What challenge did you overcome today? I admit to feeling very challenged lately, about all sorts of things.  My challenge…

Openhearted

This is me being openhearted just for Hugh’s photo challenge.  This week the theme is open.  I was visiting friends in Sweden a few years ago and this gorgeous heart structure was an unexpected find.  Apparently many people get married or renew their vows on the beach nearby – it really was a lovely thing to come across. I also love this…

Colourful building facade  Adding a bit of colour to your  Monday so that it’s not too mundane.  It’s a public holiday for most of Australia today, thanks to the Queen’s birthday celebrations,  so it’s definitely a great way to start the week. This building is in Canberra and the size of this facade was really large, my photo doesn’t show…

This was definitely not wholesome or simple but it was very decadent and delicious. It was also very pretty! Deb 🙂 My other post for this challenge is Pure Sydney…

Opera House

Pure Sydney

There’s no denying that Sydney is a beautiful city. It isn’t just about its location on the glorious harbour but also the history, the amazing engineering and the pure beauty of the city that captures the attention of locals and visitors alike. Pure joy, pure genius, pure beauty! There is much more to Sydney than these two icons but in…

Vintage themed party

Hugh’s photo challenge this week is about all things vintage. I was immediately reminded of my daughter’s Vintage themed 30th birthday party a few years ago. I made the decision to attend the bash which meant travelling halfway around the world from Australia to England all by myself. It was the right decision. I had an amazing time. She had arranged everything…
