Wordless Wednesday – 10 May 2017

It’s Wordless Wednesday! Enjoy your Wednesday – wherever you are in the world.  This lovely pic is home for me 🙂 This view was taken late in the afternoon as the locals were starting to light their evening fires – as evidenced by the smoke haze.  Autumn colour abounds – happy days! Debbie 🙂 PS. You can also find Deb’s World in these places: Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, G+, Facebook and…

Wordless Wednesday – 5 April 2017

Wordless Wednesday! This week I am sharing photos taken by my husband.  He took these photos on his last official training walk before he embarks on his 7th trek across the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea.  He is one of the 6 leaders taking 12 local high school students and they have been training for months for this trek.  He…

The green green grass of home

Green is said to be the colour of nature and health. It is associated with ecological movements, natural therapies, life,  youth, money, hope… It IS Easy Being Green is the prompt for this week’s photo challenge.  I like the colour green but orange is still my favourite.   Here are a few of my green flavoured photos.  After waking to the dreadful news in…

Tumbafest – Musings on a Monday

Welcome to Tumbafest 2017!  What you’ve never heard of Tumbafest???  Well read on dear friends….. I have compiled a rough step by step guide to enjoying yourself at this wonderful weekend festival of  music, food and wine in our little town of Tumbarumba, nestled in the hills of southern NSW Australia. Step 1: Find out everything you can about the…

Tumbatrek 2017

At the beginning of February each year, Tumbarumba plays host to walking enthusiasts for the annual Tumbatrek. My husband and I have participated in most of the walks over recent years and enjoy the scenery, the company and the opportunity to share our beautiful area with others.  There are usually over 100 walkers of all ages and fitness levels who join…

Australia Day 2017

Today is Australia Day (Thursday January 26) and every year an advertisement is made by Meat and Livestock Australia encouraging us to eat lamb.  They are often controversial adverts and this year’s ad is no exception, with many  critics. What do you think of the advertisement? Do you think it’s funny, insensitive, clever, inclusive, divisive….. I have my own thoughts but I’d…

Thursday Doors – 19 January 2017

The horse float door I spotted this door while out walking recently.  Our little town (Tumbarumba) is quite a horsey place and at the time there was a week long pony club camp happening with youngsters and horses everywhere.  It’s usually a stinking hot week and this year was no exception! The camp culminates in a parade down the main…

Ambience on a summer morning – Weekly Photo Challenge

Ambience: the character and atmosphere of a place I love this view of what’s known in our little town as ‘The Creekscape’.  I think it shows character and atmosphere very well.  It also gave my mood an uplift! I took this photo while out on my early morning walk the other day.  The days have been so hot lately that the…

2016 – the year that was!

Tumba-bloody-Rumba was the winner as the most viewed post on my blog in 2016.  Did you see it? In looking back at my blog stats for 2016 I have been very surprised about what featured in my top 10 based on views.  Posts on local government issues, travels, photo challenges and ongoing issues with my forced redundancy collected the top votes based on the stats.…

It’s Good iPhriday

It’s Good Phriday today! I took these photos while wandering around the local showground, the day after the town’s annual agricultural Show.  It was a lovely sight – all crisp, clear, clean and reflective. In reality it’s just a little bridge over the creek and an empty grandstand but I like their quietness and stillness after the big, busy and noisy day they…

Tumba-bloody-Rumba

Warning: this post is about the closest I’ll ever get to writing something political. Paint the town orange someone said – so we did. Orange streamers, ribbons and signs adorn every signpost and fence – orange being the colour of harmony. Get a celebrity on board to help get the message out there someone suggested – so we did. Watch this comedian put…
