What’s your view? #lifethisweek

A variety of views from where I sit

Take the journey to enjoy the view.

My views

As I was writing this post it occurred to me that my views have changed as my life has progressed. This is probably very normal as we all go though highs and lows and change our views on a variety of things as we age. Being made redundant changed a lot for me as I had always considered myself as a valued worker doing an important job, but that view was blown out the window.

Enjoy this very Australian song, which kept coming to me as I was writing this post.

Sharing these snippets of views has been fun, thanks to Denyse who is the hostess of the weekly linkup with optional prompts. You can read her latest #lifethisweek post here. You are more than welcome to join the linkup too. So many great blogs to discover!

How about you?

What’s your view like, I’d love to know!

Have a great week.

Everyone has a story to tell!

She now spends her time reading, blogging, riding her ebike and travelling. Deb was awarded a Bravery Award from the Queen when she was 17 after a tragic accident – a definite life changing moment! She is married with 3 grown-up daughters & has 4 grandchildren. She never imagined being Granny Debs would bring so much joy to her life! You can read more of Deb’s story here

  1. What beautiful views / scenery Deb. I don’t think I realised you were that rural. I know we talked about ‘living out of town’ but I’m in a satellite suburb rather than semi-rural or anything. It feels peaceful and private. Gorgeous. (I’m jealous!)

  2. Gorgeous views you’ve captured there Deb! I do envy where you live. I crave a more rural/country lifestyle. Maybe one day! Hope you have a fabulous week!

  3. Hi Deb – I loved all these gorgeous photos – and especially the one of your girls – nothing beats family! Also really like that song – it’s so Australian isn’t it? I’m glad you’re settling into post-redundancy life – I think when we pause and actually look at the life we have, it’s so much better than what we left behind – I’m grateful for it every day x

    1. Hi Leanne you’re so right, nothing beats family, so I’m pleased I put that photo of the girls into my post. I am very settled now and wouldn’t go back to working life if you paid me. I’m also very grateful and know I am fortunate in so many ways.


    1. Thanks Jen, that song was in my head at the time, maybe the lines about sitting on the patio watching…the photos are all lovely views so it was fun to combine them all.


  4. You have some beautiful views here Deb. I agree that our view changes through life. Sometimes it changes just by stepping back a little and letting go of things in our life. It’s good to have our current one but also lovely to reminisce.

  5. Great post with wonderful photos. My husband was also “given the axe” or “shown the door” as we say here in Canada and it’s an adjustment for sure to move along in a positive way. Thanks for sharing all your lovely views.

  6. Such lovely views you have, Deb!! My favourite is that from your window.. just amazing! Because it’s an everyday view, but still so pretty, colourful, inviting, and intriguing – about the forest, what’s along the road and so on.

  7. That back paddock view if you didn’t use filters is amazing. The pink and purple hues on the mountains is delightful!! #Lifethisweek (PS I really want to get down the South Coast. At some point. All that fun got cancelled 😦 )

    1. Thanks Lydia, the colours are as they were on the day. we often get the hills being lit up like this but it’s a matter of capturing it. I love this photo. Yes to getting to the South Coast we have plans for Christmas, so fingers crossed!


  8. What’s not to like in this post…what a lovely set of views and perspectives. Your daughters are all so much “unalike” in appearance and wonder how they were as kids. My son’s 3 girls are so different too!! About the top of Australia…I did that aged about 19 on one of my ski trips to Thredbo. Yes, I did do that…before I met B, who hates the cold so no more snow…

    Thank you for sharing your post for this week’s link up in Life This Week on Denyse Whelan Blogs. It’s a lovely sharing place you’ve visited and added your post. I wish you well and next Monday, the link up is Share Your Snaps…but of course, any post, old or new, on/off prompts is most welcome. Denyse.

    1. Thanks for having us join in each week Denyse, it’s a highlight of my week. My daughters are similar in some ways and all are told they look like me which is weird when they’re all so different.
