I had a bright and bubbly post ready for you today, but I got some news that knocked me sideways. Kellie from To Russia with Hope has lost her battle with Stiff Person Syndrome and passed away. She wrote beautifully, with humour and in our little Blog with Pip Facebook group was an absolute sweetheart. You… Read More
Well, I’m a little late linking in with the other lovely Blog with Pip students. But I promise that I’ve been really busy and creative and super inspired.
So, five things I’m loving right now?
1. Building my blog page
I’ve moved to Wordpress, become a .com and now I’m making it all look nice. Seriously, a year ago, I wouldn’t have thought about doing all this by myself. But there is so much knowledge and helpfulness out there.
I’m a shocker for taking pictures and then just leaving them on the computer for no one to ever see. Origrami links in with my Instagram account and its so easy to get some cute, tactile memories in the post.
3. Kids playing music
4. Photo challenges
5. Cooking on my good old Metters oven.
Today is would have been Slim Dusty’s 87th birthday. I grew up listening to his music. I think he was a legend, and now our local Federal Member is pushing to create June 13th as Slim Dusty Day. I think YES! He and his wife, Joy McKean, travelled millions of miles all over Australia bring… Read More
Its good to take a moment and take stock of what is going on around you. Pip over at Meet Me at Mikes does this on a regular basis and I thought I’d join in too. Making : New friends online. Cooking : Roast Quinces. I’m marking the last day of Autumn with their beautiful… Read More
We got a little card in the letterbox the other day letting us know they were cutting the power to replace some power poles in our street. On a Sunday! For 10 Hours!! Well, there go my plans of sewing a new top. And I guess I won’t be able vacuum or iron. Oh dear! I’m planning… Read More
I’m feeling all ‘leapy’ at the moment. Not the scaredy cat, jump at my own shadow kind of ‘leapy’, more the jump in with both feet kind. The GOOD kind of ‘leapy’. So that’s why you’ll now find me here on MY OWN .COM!!! How awesome is that? It took some late night reading and… Read More
Mother’s Day is coming up here in Australia. I kind of dread what that entails. Sweet things I don’t want to eat, stinky things from the school Mother’s Day stall. All those things given with great love, that you can’t hide. The Great White Hunter prefaced the conversation about it with his usual ‘Now I… Read More
Do you hang out on Pinterest? After loosing all my bookmarked online articles and inspirations when my computer died a few years ago, Pinterest came along and answered my prayers. A place for everything! Hooray! I’ve since built up quite a few boards covering many of the things that make up my world. Boards for… Read More
I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog front…AGAIN! Thanks to the lovely folks who sent me little message making sure things were OK with me and mine. Let me assure you… Read More
