At 11.30am on Sunday 17 June I married my partner, Tom. A Marriage Celebrant officiated a lovely ceremony where we made our promises to each other in front of our small group of friends, family and neighbours. After the ceremony there was a champagne toast to the bride and groom and some catching up with people we hadn’t seen for a while. The songs during the service were Perhaps Love; Have I Told You Lately […]

Time I wrote another blog! I  keep delaying writing  – I think my Uni study used up all my words for a time! I completed my two  units and I await the results! There is more to life than assignments – like getting married, for example :-). Yes, only eight more sleeps and I will marry my wonderful partner – we have been together for over eight years and recently decided to marry. It was […]

Today WordPress asked us to write about our favourite ten songs. That should be easy enough? No….it definitely wasn’t easy. I stopped counting as I didn’t want to leave any out. The songs included come from our karaoke song list and includes many that I enjoy singing and listening to. 1. Another Brick in the Wall by Pink Floyd 2. Perhaps Love by John Denver 3. Blanket on the Ground by Billie Jo Spears 4. […]

The ONLY way to travel…

Geography / Music

For me, travelling by car is my most enjoyable form of travel, providing it is a good car and I have a good driver (and some good music)!  For a long journey such as 500 miles (about 800 kilometers) I would prefer to do it over a couple of days. I have driven 700 kilometers in one day on my own but with very little traffic on the road. I love to be able to stop […]

How do I choose a friend?

Today’s topic is “How do you decide who to be friends with?” I had never looked at friendship as a decision based on certain criteria – something like a job application! I will reflect on some current friends and see what I come up with (not necessarily in any order of priority) Friend A – We found each other on the internet. In this case I did have a profile and so did he. We were deemed […]

Hippies

What ever happened to the hippie movement in the seventies? What happened to all those people who were going to cause a revolution while wearing flowers in their hair. My memories of that era seem like another universe away. I was reminded of this time when I heard the song San Francisco – “Are you going to San Francisco, with flowers in your hair…” I can’t remember the words to the song but I remember the feelings of wanting to […]

In the last twelve months there were lots of things that didn’t happen. Here are some of the things I would have loved to do. 1. Have my three sons, their partners and my grandchildren all together for a meal in the same place at the same time! That would be lovely! 2. Go for a walk in the Dandenong Ranges on a balmy spring day and admire the tree ferns, maiden hair ferns and all the […]

Baby, it’s a wild world…

Casually strolling to the shops this morning I heard the strains of a familiar Cat Steven’s tune from the early 1970’s. The tune was Wild World by Cat Stevens from his Tea for the Tillerman Album. Suddenly I am back there in Melbourne, walking toward the city centre from Spencer Street where I was living at the time. I was walking with my new, hippie boyfriend (who I later married), eleven years older than me. I was […]
