Welcome to my weekly Monday Musings   The Mother of all Weeks –  We’ve just celebrated Mother’s Day here in the land down under (and other places too) with lots of celebrations and sales of soaps, slippers and scarves.  I had a chuckle at the groups of  youngsters out shopping for that perfect gift for mum or grandma.  I also enjoyed…

Share Your World – January 23 2017

I’m enjoying participating in Cee’s Share Your World.  It’s a great way to join with other bloggers to share our worlds. This week’s questions are: Do you prefer juice or fruit?

Mother’s Day Classic 2016

It was raining, it was cold but it was definitely fun.  We joined hundreds of people in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park for the 2016 Mother’s Day Classic,  all of us raising funds for Breast Cancer Research. It was a sea of pink despite the wet weather. I wrote a post recently about Running for a Cause and how good it feels. There…
