The man of my dreams        

As Dreamy turns ten in three months, I have been thinking how much he has changed my life for the better. Before I adopted him, and he adopted me, my home was tidy, and I was lonely (although I didn’t want to acknowledge it). Then on March the 31st, 2018 my life began to change. […]

Friends are good for the soul!

Dreamy and I have just returned from our annual Christmas meet up with family and friends. Each time we head to Adelaide in South Australia I try to catch up with as many people as possible. Everyone enjoys Dreamy, and at the very least, is a little bemused by our bond. While on our trip […]

A Different New Year's Resolution

I’m not one to make new year’s resolutions because I cannot keep them. Slow, incremental changes work best for me. Promising to make major changes at a point of time is doomed to fail. All the significant changes in my life have been made up of relatively minor ones over a longer period. External changes […]

Merry Christmas!

It’s Christmas! Dreamy and I will be celebrating with a special friend and her greyhound, Bella. We will have roast chicken and give the leftovers to Dreamy and Bella. I am really looking forward to sharing tomorrow them both. As a single woman without a partner and who lives by herself, I know how it […]

I am still celebrating!

Dreamy and I have just returned from a holiday in Victoria, Australia. This was part of my 60th gift to myself. While we were away, we enjoyed walking in a different part of the country. We spent three days at Halls Gap which sits in the Grampians, a national park. Our accommodation was nestled amongst […]

I have made it to 60! 

Since my 30s I have worked to be healthy for as long as possible. I have no control over my genetics, but I do have control over the way they are expressed. I don’t know how long I will live, but I have a fair chance of remaining fit and healthy for some time. Earlier […]

A place of peace

Today has been a warm, sunny spring day where I live in Southern Australia. Beautiful weather for a walk with my boy, Dreamy. Although the day was a bit warm for us, we walked the Leg of Mutton Lake which is shaded by trees, protecting us from the sun. I filled his water bottle with […]

Driving a manual car

Over six years ago, when I bought my latest car, I moved from a manual transmission (stick shift) to an automatic transmission. I learned to drive in a manual car over 40 years ago and have always driven a manual until this one. This week my car is being fixed. As I have a few […]

Violets, the bane of my life!

Over the last few days, I have been thinning out the violets in my garden. I first planted them thinking they could not go wild given the composition of my soil. The block was originally part of a site owned by SA Water who had covered it with gravel. It was subdivided and sold to […]
