Aside

While out cycling on the Great Victorian Rail Trail we came across the Cheviot Tunnel near Yea. A lovely ride on another Victorian rail trail. Couldn’t resist putting this saying on the photo.

Haven from the heat

29 degrees Celsius at 6am is an indication that the day will be another heatwave here in Melbourne. We are here for the Australian Open tennis read more here and I decided that Fitzroy Gardens would be a nice spot for my morning run/walk.  It was a delightfully cool, peaceful haven with green grass, sprinklers, shady trees, fountains and interesting sights…

Rising temperatures

It’s a bit hot in Melbourne today, actually it’s a very hot 43.3 degrees Celsius at this very moment. We have come down to Melbourne for a few days at the Australian Open tennis tournament and we’re in the middle of a heat wave. We are now sitting in our apartment with the air conditioner keeping us cool while we…

I have always kept a diary I wrote each of my children the story about their birth and their first few…

This will be an interesting challenge and one I am looking forward to (I think).  Today’s challenge is to introduce myself so apologies to those who…

Mother and daughter compare notes at the same age

Mum and me at 53!

During Christmas celebrations I took some time to sit and compare notes with my mother – our different lives at age 53. My mother is now 75 but looks years younger so I am selfishly hoping that she has passed on her ageing genes to us all (Sarah also made the same comment during the week). Mum turned 53 in…
