Reblog: Not a good week!  – Deb’s World

I can’t let today, 10 May 2017, go by without mentioning that one year ago today we were told our jobs as educators in the State’s Correctional Centres were to be axed by the end of 2016. It started a dreadful time of worry, concern, upset, ill health and general malaise.  We were all summonsed to Sydney,  to a meeting to…

Debbie 🙂 PS. You can also find Deb’s World in these places: Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, G+, Facebook and…

It’s a dangerous world out there! – Weekly Photo Challenge

Danger! Look out! This week’s challenge is about the unexpected thrill of danger.  This week, share a photo that says Danger! to you.

Wordless Wednesday – 3 May 2017

It’s Wordless Wednesday! Enjoy your Wednesday – wherever you are in the world. The seasonal differences within our huge country never cease to amaze me.  Just a week ago I was up north in Brisbane in Qld where autumn was not evident at all.  It was a pleasant 25 degrees during the day and no autumnal colours were on show. I returned home…

A new me or an upgraded version?

Isn’t it interesting how you can read a post and all the accompanying comments and get a real feel for people and their situation?  I love blogging for that very reason. Since retiring I have made contact with many other middle aged bloggers who are in much the same boat as I am.  It’s been enlightening and so encouraging to…
