First world problem – when there is a fast moving river running down your street due to a burst water main and your son is late for work. Read more
Don’t ask me. I’ve no idea. But I did want to take it home with me to look after it. Read more
Here is my response to the Ragtag Daily Prompt — Diametric.
One of the things I really love about the Ragtag Daily Prompt is the contributions from all our participants. One of my favourite contributors (I have many) is Lois from On Pets and Prisoners. She always comes up with just the right quirky photo to illustrate the prompt. Today, I feel the need to respond in kind. So here is my fun photo too. Read more
I forgot to include this photo of a beautiful fly in my November Changing Seasons post. You know the weather is warming up when the blow flies come a-visiting. Maybe these exquisitely beautiful creatures are not such a pain after all. Unlikely praise for the king of the flies. Read more
Dear Readers, here is a poem about my dog, Ama. It is written in the style of a bush poem. Read more
This is my response to the 3-Day Quote Challenge (Day 2) and also to the WordPress Daily Prompt — Bubble.
The delightful Pauline from Living in Paradise has invited me to take part in a 3-day Quote Challenge. I am up to Day 2 (phew). You can see my Day 1 quote post here.

Without further ado, here is the second quote:
WordPress Daily Prompt — Authentic
The Daily Prompt is “authentic“. I should leave this one alone, but I’m afraid I can’t help myself. I’ve got a blog so I might as well use it. Authentic seems to be more than just the le mot du jour; it’s everywhere and has been for a few years now. It has crept into every-day conversation. We all want to be authentic. Read more
In honour of the National Folk Festival (Australia), which opens tonight (Thursday), I have written a little parody that I thought I would test out on you, dear Readers. I have no idea whether I will be brave enough to recite it at any of the poetry workshops. I never have before. It depends on your feedback. If you are really brave, you can try to sing along to the tune of the Sounds of Then, which was written and performed by Ganggajang (you’ll have to sing over the top of their words). I won’t be singing come performance time. I’ve provided a link to the original song below. Aussies may find this fun, but others will probably be completely flummoxed. Please note there is a certain amount of hyperbole used in this poem.
