365 Grateful – Day 26

I’m grateful that my new local Snap Fitness gym is now open!  It opened yesterday and I went in today to be inducted, receive my swipe access card and complimentary Snap Fitness backpack, towel and water bottle.  I also worked out!  A personal trainer will contact me soon […]

Lunch at Hawkins

I had an impromptu outing to Hawkins Nursery today!  It was a beautiful day here in Brisbane and I felt the need to spend some time outdoors.  I have a very neglected potted herb garden that needs some attention – urgently!  So, I decided to go to Hawkins […]

365 Grateful – Day 25

I’m very grateful for my friends.  Every girl needs some good girl friends.  Today I had lunch with a girl friend at a local plant nursery.  That’s her in the photo (minus her head 😉 !).  I will be writing a post on the day and sharing some […]

365 Grateful – Day 24

I’m grateful for moments like this one – where you come face to face with nature and wildlife and it slows just long enough for you to capture something special in a photo.  This is a Kookaburra that I was fortunate to very quickly get a photo of […]

Pandanus Beach – Wynnum

Pandanus Beach at Wynnum is a secret little haven.  Of course it doesn’t have crashing surf and doesn’t stretch for miles like our neighbours at the Sunshine Coast or the Gold Coast, but it is our little bit of beach near home and it is unique!   You see, […]

365 Grateful – Day 23

I’m grateful that I live near water!  Moreton Bay to be exact!  I find water incredibly soothing and peaceful and I’m so grateful that I have access to its soothing effects whenever I want.  This photo is taken from my favourite cafe at Manly – ‘Cafe le Mer’.  […]

The Day Bed Project

Some years ago, Mr MM, the kids and I went over to our friends house for lunch.  They had only recently moved into a new house and this was a lunch to celebrate and check out their new residence.  It is a beautiful house!  Their previous house had […]

365 Grateful – Day 22

I’m grateful for my new glasses!  I only just picked them up today.  From the left we have my new stylish and snazzy glasses for long distance (never needed these before *sigh*) – to be used mainly for night driving, maybe watching TV and if I go to a […]

Finding Min

Many Australian bloggers over recent days (Friday & Saturday) have been attending a ProBlogger event in Melbourne.  Since I’m now on Twitter, I’ve been reading with interest all their tweets at #pbevent.  There were some tweets that really struck a chord with me.  Here are just some: I […]

365 Grateful – Day 21

I’m grateful for Chelsea’s bath times when afterwards she has a burst of energy and we see a glimpse of the puppy of yesterday.  Chelsea is a 12 1/2 year old tri-colour Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.  Apart from when there is food around, these days she mostly sleeps […]
