I dream a lot! I don’t always remember them though. When I am finding life a bit difficult I often dream that I am caught in a flood and that it is about to overwhelm me. When stressed, I often clam up and bury the emotions inside. In order to be “less stressed” I am learning to name my emotions with a technique from “The Confidence Gap” by Dr Russ Harris.”  Amazingly, last night I […]

I often think that the headlines in our papers say something about where we live and what is important to us.

If you have ever read my blog before, you will know I love telling stories about my time in remote places in Australia. A few weeks ago we went to Northern Queensland which is a very long way from where we live. I love to take photos of the trees and natural landscapes so I asked my husband (:-)) to reduce the speed so that I could take a shot from the car window without […]

PLEASE NOTE: allaboutwordswa has a new WordPress theme 🙂 but it is the same blog! On Saturday I went to the Vasse Markets with my neighbour and friend. It was a pleasant outing and I treated myself to a big bunch of native flowers. I took some photos so I could share them with you 🙂 I also found a lovely little book for $1 called Flowers from Shakespeare’s Garden – a Posy from the […]
