I like to have a nice garden but it is not something that comes naturally to me. Up until recently all I had in my small, rear yard was the big, above ground garden bed, some palms and two jasmine plants. The garden bed was really too big for the space and because it was so deep I had stopped planting vegetables and my mint, parsley and oregano started to take over. I was able […]
I wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry! I prepared dinner in my trusty cooker (3 in 1 – pressure, slow cooker and steamer). There was a big pot of chilli con carne. It has handles on the side so, when ready, I went to lift it to another bench to serve it up. Disaster! I only got as far as the kitchen sink and it wouldn’t go any further because I hadn’t unplugged from […]
Getting started was the hardest bit. Always worried I might mess it up 🙂 With the many changes to how we listen to music today I have been finding that even though there are so many options, I am actually listening to less music.

I have never done anything more than Lego in the past (and I wasn’t too flash at that) so this is a real learning experience. I am tackling one cupboard at a time – naturally! It took a good part of this afternoon to get two drawers assembled. Stay tuned for the finished product! […]
When I saw the topic for the Daily Post today I immediately thought of this song that I love. Have a listen and it might just bring some sunshine into your day 🙂 (it did to mine).
A friend passed on some books to me this week. Included among them was one titled Noted Quotables published by World Book Encyclopedia, Inc.(1986). It is a selection of famous quotes compiled by Jerry Reedy organised by themes. I know we can find any number of quotes on the internet but sometimes it is good to hold a book in my hands! Here are some examples: Theme – Ability “Everyone must row with the oars […]
The weather forecast for today sounded promising so we headed out to Meelup Beach for a picnic and checked out the new whale watching platform at Point Picquet We soaked up the peace and serenity of the place.
