Why a change is as good as a holiday

Mt Kosciuszko, Australia, walk, hike, me

A change is as good as a holiday - well so they say! But as my life is now one big holiday I have to look elsewhere for my inspiration to change things up. Changing it up: I did just that earlier in the week, when I participated in a blogging group activity looking for …

iPhriday – road trip

We're on a road trip for the weekend!  We're off to Melbourne with the newlyweds to collect the official wedding photos - it just so happens that the photographers are my highly talented sister and her husband and it's my birthday weekend so I'm expecting to be spoilt!
