DP Challenge / funny / You must be kidding?

You’re at the airport, your flight is delayed for six more hours, and none of your electronic devices is working. How do you pass the time? I experienced something similar to this a couple of weeks ago. I decided to take a short flight to Perth in preference to driving and staying over night in a hotel before catching my 10.00am flight to Melbourne. I arrived at our small Busselton airport (5.45pm for a 6.45pm […]

Share the story of a time you felt unsafe … In 1980 my former husband and I took up an opportunity to work in a remote Indigenous community in Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory of Australia. I was twenty-six at the time with two sons – one was four years old and the other was only six-months old. It was a big adventure for us all. At first I was even scared of the […]

Blog 2013 / DP Challenge

For many of us the seasons are changing, bouncing unpredictably between cold and warm. Are you glad to be moving into a new season, or wishing for one more week of the old? I am looking forward to warmer, sunny days in the weeks and months ahead. It has been a long, cold and wet winter. Great for the garden though. I haven’t done any watering for ages! cheers Lorraine Related articles DP: Seasons ( […]

My (and their Dad’s) choice of names for my three sons were: Robert Peter – my brothers’ names are Robert and Peter and my Uncle’s name was Peter Roy. My son’s Dad, Grandfather and Great Grandfather and so forth were all called Robert. I also have a nephew called Robert. We called Robert by his second name, Peter, for some time before reverting back to Robert. Andrew Joseph – My Grandfather’s name was Joseph. We […]

Acceptance / Meaning of life and that stuff / Self acceptance / Wisdom

What’s your biggest regret? How would your life have been different if you’d made another decision? Well let me make it absolutely clear that I wouldn’t change anything in my life as I believe things happen for a reason and our experiences make us the people that we are today! However, I am going to suspend that thought so that I can play around with this blog post. For a start, I would address the […]

I am not really into shoes but someone once told me that every girl needs a pair of red shoes! So I bought a pair of red shoes 🙂 I bought these for my wedding in 2012. I changed my mind on the morning of the wedding and wore a different outfit and different shoes! These are the ones I ended up wearing for my wedding. I bought these sandals to wear with my Christmas […]

If you don’t know the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, it can be read on Wikipedia by pressing here This story was one of my favourites as a little girl. Being the youngest in a household of seven, taught me a lot about empathy with those at the bottom of the pecking order 🙂 Goldilocks is trying things out to see what suits her best (what is “just right”) – the porridge, the […]
