clubs and things

  Hello.  How are you all? I am very very very well.  The best I've been in a very long time.  It feels good to write/feel/think/type that. Tonight I am back from my book club.  It's funny really how I have these lovely ladies in my life, I joined the book club via an online site.  I had wanted to join ...

A New (hot) Day, A New Lesson

  Aloha to all far and wide.  How are you all?

close

Ah, close to the end of the year already.  I definitely missed the middle of the year it seems.  It's hard to believe that the cooler weather is long gone and soon we will be enveloped in the sunshine and heat that is a Sydney Summer.    I'm not sure why it always takes me so long to be ready for the Summer, it always ...

Drug of Choice

Oh dear.  I just sat down with a cup of tea (and a bowl of dry Frosties, kill me now) and opened up a blog I have been following for 15 years when the internet was small, blogs were but diaries, Facebook was but the figment of some whipper snapper's imagination and the blogging phenomenon started with the little craft ...
