Water water everywhere

In the next of a not very reliable or regular series of posts designed to highlight the stories behind the photos I’m taking for the Friday Photos Challenge, I bring you a tiny bit of the Coast Walk – from South Bondi to Bronte Beach.  If you spend even 5 minutes looking through the Friday…

A green afternoon

This week’s Friday Photos theme is ‘green’ and this weekend’s trip to Sydney Olympic Park had me clicking away with my new android phone (frankly, I think the camera in it is better than my actual camera) as there was green everywhere! In keeping with the theme of green, one of the places we visited…

Outdoors

The theme for Friday Photos this week is ‘outdoors’, so this afternoon we took ourselves off to our favourite Royal National Park for a walk with the intention of finding some photo opportunities. While we did get fairly up close & personal with a 4 – 5 foot goanna, that’s not what I’m writing about…

Beginnings

Having decided that the 365 photos in a year thing was too hard in 2011, I’m up for another challenge this year so am participating in Friday Photos 2012 (twitter hashtag is #fp2012). Immediately this seems easier – it’s just one photo a week (although we can load up to 3) AND someone else is…

A meme of sorts

I did a Facebook status thing today that went like this (sort of, I’ve amended the words a bit): ‎ 1) Discover the #1 single in your country of origin in the week you were born; 2) Find it on YouTube; 3) Post it in a blog post without shame. After a bit of searching…

Five things

Inspired by Bookgrrl’s post on 5 things that are the same or different to 5 years ago (the last time the Census rolled around) I thought I’d reflect on this too. I had to stop and think about the question of where I was living 5 years ago – it seems like a lifetime ago…

Alphabet meme

I love a meme this far into the #blogjune challenge – and today I have a sore throat as well so this is perfect! Thanks to Jo & Tania for posting: A. Age: 44 B. Bed size: Queen C. Chore that you hate: You mean there are chores other people like??? Sigh, I particularly hate…

A TV meme

It’s pretty funny really, the thought of me doing a TV meme as I actually watch very little TV. However, I found this one on LiberryDwarf‘s blog and it made me laugh, because so many answers were probably what I would write. And it’s a slow-ish Thursday afternoon. So, in the interests of perpetuating a…

Life in 100 words

A meme of sorts! Thanks to @flexnib for posting hers, after inspiration from Darcy Moore. Mine then: Born in Sydney. One sibling, now he lives in the UK. Grew up mostly in Canberra, with life stops in LA, Karachi and Christmas Island along the way. 9 schools in all. Too many.  Where was home? Married…
