Watching The World Go By

Happy Sunday morning from chilly Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Or maybe we’re in Antarctica? It’s certainly been cold enough for that recently. I’m typing this in my pyjamas, with a hot cup of tea in a thermos, trying to ignore the zombie-apocalypse climate so that I can hopefully string a few words together. Tomorrow the kids… Continue reading Watching The World Go By

My Fingers Are Blue

The footage and imagery coming out of the worst affected areas is… Continue reading Welcome to 2020, Everything is on Fire

School Holidays

I sat down with my cup of tea this afternoon and realised it was, quite suddenly, Sunday - and here I am without so much as a word to share! School Holidays is always one of my favourite times; I love having the kids close by (even if they argue) and not having to rush… Continue reading School Holidays
