Lake Parramatta Walking Tracks…

Regular readers will know that I’m booked to do Milford Track in 7 weeks time…7 weeks tomorrow to be exact. Finding the time to train effectively with my schedule has been difficult, but I’m trying to pack as much into the weekends as I can. The biggest challenge […]

And, that’s a wrap…

What I’ve been de-cluttering… We’re looking to put our house on the market in January, so I’ve been actively de-cluttering. The cookbook shelves under the kitchen bench were the first to get my attention. There are some books I can’t bear to part with, but these piles will […]

And, that’s a wrap…

Did you notice the change of title? Friday Five seemed a tad obsolete when: Lately it hasn’t been posted on Friday and Sometimes it’s been more than five! So, without further ado… Where I went for the first time… Actually, that probably came out wrong- the answer is […]

More than the Friday Five…

Spring is here. And I don’t need the raucous calls of the plovers that stand guard on the roof of our house to know that- although it is a very noisy reminder. This pair hatched their chicks a month ago- just before the last cold and rainy spell. […]

Sydney Opera House

Friday Five…

It’s been a glorious week weather wise here in Sydney- blue skies all the way. It’s these few weeks each year (and another few in April and May) that I love about this city. Driving over the bridge in the bus each morning the harbour has been glittering- […]

Friday Five…

I’m loving this whole have Fridays off from work to work thing. It makes it easier dealing with the long and jolty evening commute when I know I only have to do it four nights a week. The problem is, I’m not always using my day “off” to, […]

Pinterest for Writers…

I’m about two-thirds of the way through the current re-write for Wish You Were Here. All going well it will be done next weekend and off to Nicola at ebookedit for copy editing at the end of the month. Yes, we’re nearly there. As I’ve mentioned before, this […]
