First red wine of winter – happiness

By | April 10th, 2019|bars and restaurants, daily life, friends, happiness, professional|

Is there anything nicer than that first winter glass of red wine? So rich and warming and cosy. I am happy. I know that I am often quite happy, but this is a different kind of contentment. It comes from having a purpose and direction in my career. Before now, I had my fingers in [...]

Thando live – Sunset sounds – City of Stonnington

By | January 14th, 2019|friends, interesting people, music, parks and gardens, relationships|

Sunset Sounds was superb yesterday. We were lucky enough to nab a picnic spot, close enough to the stage, so that we could hear and see the band(s) very well. We saw two bands - The Meltdown and Thando. Both were really brilliant! It was especially exciting to hear that Thando and her partner (the [...]

Hoorah hooray – New Year’s Eve 2019

By | January 1st, 2019|bars and restaurants, family, friends, happiness, holidays, light art, music|

What an evening! And what a beautiful way to ring in 2019! I found myself back in Melbourne after quite a bit of consternation and tribulation. The IDEA was to stay on the coast and to keep helping, but my family really thought I should come back, and I was getting distressed by the prospect [...]

November birthdays at a rooftop bar

The lush plants and green walls were the perfect backdrop for photos of the party goers, dressed in sparkling gold. We sipped on wine, soda and cocktails and supped on various [...]

Lulu’s for wine, art and conversation

By | August 10th, 2018|art, bars and restaurants, daily life, friends|

Lulu Cafe and Gallery is a lovely place to meet with friends on a lovely winter evening. Three glasses of Tempranillo and a delicious meal marinated chicken Maryland later and it is with a certain spring in my step that I meet the 9:07 train to Keon Park. Words are what have been missing in [...]

The warmth of red wine and friendship

By | July 29th, 2018|bars and restaurants, design, friends, light art|

It was a bit of a new experience to go shopping with a friend. It is so interesting how conversation flows in completely different ways with the stimulation of browsing lovely things. It was quite a novel experience. To add to this, is that amazing warmth that grows between two people who are drinking red [...]

Cool Out Sun – Melbourne International Jazz Festival

By | June 10th, 2018|bars and restaurants, friends, music|

Last night was the perfect evening in many ways. Just great company, great food, and amazing music. I was so lucky to see Cool Out Sun at the Reverence Hotel last night. I was following my friends into the band room, I could see them just in front of me, and the door bitch said [...]
