365 Grateful – Day 144

Happy Valentines day to you all!  Yes, today is Valentines day….apparently! You see, I am not married to a romantic man.  He scoffs at Valentines day, rolls his eyes and mutters things like ‘what a load of rubbish…what makes it different to any other day….etc’.  After 28 years […]

365 Grateful – Day 143

I’m grateful for the diversity offered up here at Caloundra….from beautiful quiet secluded little spots of paradise to Caloundra City bustling with casual excitement, shops to explore, restaurants and cafe’s to dine in, a picture theatre and more. The photograph above was taken on Golden Beach and the […]

365 Grateful – Day 142

I’m grateful for a beautiful morning spent at Bulcock Beach, Caloundra.  It is only a small beach but it has always been a favourite of mine.  When I was a child, I called it ‘the beach with no waves’.  That is what I like about it – no […]

I’ve been having retirement thoughts!

I’ve been having ‘retirement’ thoughts since being up here on holidays at the Sunshine Coast.  Yes, I know, I am far too young for those kind of thoughts!!  Well … not really!  You can think about retirement at any age … right?  It’s called planning ahead … contemplating […]

365 Grateful – Day 140

Since I’ve got a little time to myself at the beach house, I have been wandering around taking some photographs, getting a little practice in and also because it relaxes me and I love it! 🙂 I love this photo I took of the one and only fruit […]

365 Grateful – Day 139

It’s just Ava and I at the beach house until tomorrow afternoon.  MrMM has taken MissM and the boys back home and will return tomorrow.  MissM had to go back as she is performing over the weekend.  She also has other commitments during next week.  The following week […]

365 Grateful – Day 138

This afternoon MrMM, MissM and I left the dogs at home with the twins and went for a drive to Cotton Tree at Maroochydore to have a look around the shops.   Afterwards, we bought a coffee each and sat on a bench overlooking the Maroochy River (near the […]

365 Grateful – Day 137

Yesterday MissM and I spent the day with a very good friend of mine, her daughter and friends who are holidaying in Mooloolaba, hence this post being a day late. We had a great day!  It was late afternoon (‘happy hour’) and my friend and I were sitting […]
