Emma Donovan and the Putbacks – Stonnington Jazz Festival

By | May 19th, 2018|friends, music, radio|

I think the thing that moved me most about last night's gig in Windsor as part of the Stonnington Jazz Festival was the fact that Emma, the lead singer of Emma Donovan and the Putbacks is such a rare, but fantastic success story. She sang these words during one of her songs: 'Aboriginal woman, here [...]

Maya – Ella’s Music Club

By | May 13th, 2018|friends, music|

There is something about live music that can dissolve any kind of knot of the soul. It soaks into my core and melts like chocolate over my heart. I admit, there was some moments that I wished you were there. My favourite part though, was when each member of Maya’s band did their solo. Talented [...]

Sunday session – drinks and people watching

By | May 6th, 2018|bars and restaurants, friends|

Smith Street is a lovely place to people watch on a Sunday afternoon and watch the world go by. Miss Party Feet hosted drinks there this evening, and I floated back down the street, taking in the sunset, people's interesting clothing, their pets, the conversations and dynamics. It fills my soul with the substance that [...]

I am so happy and so excited. This afternoon I found a whole honey pot of interesting things that are happening in Melbourne, so I can schedule some fun events. I don't have to wait for Mistress Butterfly or Maximilien to ask me out! There are so many things to do. It is exciting. I [...]

Saturday afternoon at the Museum

It is really nice to have a Saturday night at home for a change, and just cook and drink wine and listen to nice music. I am making a mini herbed roast lamb, and it is fun. I went to the Melbourne Museum this afternoon. It is definitely worth doing. They have some amazing exhibits. [...]

Robbie Burns – Tapas bar

By | March 25th, 2018|bars and restaurants, friends, weather|

Ambience is everything for a sunny Sunday afternoon tipple. Inside with Bob Dylan playing on the stereo and people discussing the finer points of the Spanish language or outside in the breeze under the umbrellas? I love the Robbie Burns. They have the most delicious tapas. It is such a nice place to get warm [...]

Naked for Satan drinks – tapas, wine and science fiction

By | February 17th, 2018|architecture, bars and restaurants, friends|

Ah, Naked for Satan and that first Friday afternoon beer, after a long and stressful week. It was so nice to chat with my friend and watch night come over the rooftops of Fitzroy. Until we were bubbly with wine and food, and the lights twinkled all the way home.

Sundays for soap and suds

By | January 14th, 2018|daily life, friends, light art, music|

I love Sundays. It is so nice to wash clothes, wash dishes and clean the house. All the more therapeutic when I am feeling incredibly crappy from a reduction in medication. All I want to do today is to soothe my soul. I quite enjoyed Nathaniel singing Marvin Gaye at the Chapel off Chapel Summer [...]

Beautiful evening and lots of steps

Oh Sydney, how I love you. You are so vibrant and lush and amazing. Breeze, boats and beaches. I know that I am in Sydney because I have walked 19,934 steps today. Hehe. I always walk more in the city, but I am pretty sure that is a record in one day! There are so [...]
