50 | The second phase of life

January 13, 2016


My life has been about twos. Not the terrible twos; no, just the pairs who met twice and joined together, and the twins with the double take on life. The second guess was twofold, not bi-fold and cemented with as much again increasing fame. Binary moments caused dual concern and repeated with a different reaction. […]

2015. It’s what dreams are made of.

December 22, 2014


Let’s face it, parts of 2014 were not so flash. Others were fab. Certainly work life started to improve after a couple of mis-fires early on. I got a gig on Michael Smyth’s 891 Adelaide Drive show thanks to Richard aka Adelaide Tech Guy, kicked off a microvolunteering pilot for the ACH Group and ramped […]

Gwendoline turns 80

May 1, 2014


Daisy chains on lazy spring days. Cartwheels and staying out of the rain. She who must be obeyed will say, “A cuddle, yes please. Splash at the beach, oooooh wee. Hot weather makes my day.”   She goes to church but not to pray. Hello, the thesaurus is her bible. Give her a book topic or […]

Driving in #adelaide to music

April 27, 2012


I love driving to music. Do you ever experience that feeling of floating in your seat? While still being fully aware of your surrounds? You kinda just immerse yourself in the sounds and all the negativity and distractions of the day just bustle away. It’s kinda like a bright floating light in the sky… a […]

Inspiring Movie | The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Firstly, feast your eyes on a whole raft of inspiring actors. Judy, Maggie, oooh, just all of them – they are simply divine. Secondly, sit back and relax and let the movie’s striking presence and ambiance take over you. From beautiful scenery – to loud noisy streets… if you don’t get the culture, why we are […]

QUOTE | Everyone has something amazing to offer. – Accept people just the way they are.  In most cases it’s impossible to change them anyway, and it’s rude to try.  If you give them a chance, everyone has something amazing to offer.  Open your mind, arms and heart to all people; we are united in our […]

Italian Spaghetti Meatball Cookoff

February 26, 2012


We had a big italian spaghetti meatballs cookoff on a hot Saturday afternoon… and by BIG we just mean we all sit around and join in the cooking and then eat! The mama cooking up the storm was Ron’s – and he ran around the kitchen looking after her (well, she is 80) whilst he […]

Inspirational posts are my favourite, but…

February 22, 2012


But… they are also hard. Each day we see what motivates each other. Sometimes I think to myself “oh just get on with it” and other times i think “yep, couldn’t have said it better myself”. Then there are the days when you don’t want to read, or in fact, see anything motivational and inspirational. […]
