Late summer evenings in the neighbourhood

By | March 23rd, 2018|architecture, bars and restaurants, daily life, weather|

The streets were buzzing tonight on my walk home. Huge queues outside of both gelato shops and even Alimentari was open tonight. So lovely. All the way down the street, people were out at bars enjoying the last vestiges of summer.

Heaven! I am 3/4 the way through a bottle of the most lovely sparkling wine and the music is pouring through these solar and wind powered speakers. It is a festival for Harmony Day in Fitzroy and it is a superb end to the summer. The last band is the Tek Tek Ensemble and from [...]

Gorgeous atmosphere – Moomba Festival

By | March 10th, 2018|music, parks and gardens, weather|

This is my favourite kind of evening. A picnic in the gardens surrounded by the most amazing music - The Twoks! Fun! Plus Ferris Wheels with pretty lights and lovely food and company. It is a very relaxed and festive atmosphere. So happy to be celebrating a long weekend when the weather is so fine.

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 [...]

Circular Quay breeze – Sydney 2018

By | January 5th, 2018|daily life, holidays, parks and gardens, weather|

I just want to cry and cry. Premenstrual in my 40s on holidays. No fun. Sydney is a beautiful place. The breeze, the boats, the beach. It seems lusher and greener than Melbourne . Sweet frangipani scent. Nice to visit :-)

So lucky to live here – beautiful evening

So incredibly grateful right now. I only had to wait 20 minutes for a bus and it is 11:30 pm on a Wednesday night. So amazing. This little strip is one of my favourite in Melbourne. It is Lygon St in Carlton. So leafy and vibrant and lush.

the most beautiful girl in the world

It is such a beautiful evening for sharing friendship. :-) I am so happy tonight. It is Mistress Butterfly's birthday. We went to an interesting collection of writers who have recently had a residency at the Wheeler Centre. They were beautiful stories. Something that stood out for me was one writer saying 'I write to [...]

Summer has hit in a big way – 34 degrees and counting

By | November 14th, 2017|daily life, weather|

It is the kind of blisteringly hot afternoon where a cool breeze is some kind of exquisite heaven. Beer is just the thing. :-) In fact, I am going to break out a nice refreshing white wine to start the summer season. Pinot Grigio. Cheers.

gorgeous spring evening of art, wine and food

By | November 10th, 2017|art, friends, weather|

What a beautiful evening. On so many levels. It really is strange to put those two worlds side by side. Strange in a good way. The Linden Postcard Exhibition was absolutely stimulating and I found something different every time I looked at a particular wall. I am so happy to be becoming closer to Honey [...]
