Wooohoooo!

It’s been a while… I have been writing. I have written letters and cards to friends, kept up with my diary. One of my things this year is to write, record if you will, the events of the day in my diary rather than use it as an appointment book.  My French Sister visited with…

A day out in Melbourne – the most lovable city in the world

Started off this morning doing a Shred Combat class at my new gym. That’s a whooooooole other story. Shred Combat is a mixture of boxing and martial arts and I la la la loved it! Came home for a shower and to have brekky. Got the train, into Melbourne CBD, to meet one of my…

Day Eighteen of cocktail Advent Calendar

I experienced a high today. A life high. My head nearly exploded. Cannot stop smiling.  Started off the day right – exercise, quiet time, no breakfast and dancing to Christmas music.  Don’t start with me about breakfast. I knew I was going to Posh Brit’s house for morning tea. So!  I’m a Melburnian who drives…

A little bit about my Australia
