From beach to bush

So after blowing all our data allowance uploading all the pics from Fraser Island, I am waaaay behind in my updates! After our awesome week and a half in Hervey Bay and on Fraser Island we headed inland to catch up with family at Mundubbera. I spent much of my childhood in Mundubbera after Mum …

Memories are made from days like these

Remember those trips as a kid where you were camping or fishing or running around with friends and how snippets of those times come back to you now and again as  moments of nostalgia many years later in adulthood? That's what we created today.  A day spent on the water in the ski boat (thanks …

Happy birthday Mum

Dear Mum Did you know that I find your birthday the most hardest of all the days to deal with?  Not the anniversary of your death, or the many annual holiday dates that have passed since then.  Not Mother's Day, although since becoming a mother I have found it is much more bittersweet. Not even my own …

Thankfully though, despite a …

Memory Lane Monday – Dad

It has been said that relationships with fathers can be pretty complicated and I can certainly attest to that! My dad and I had what some might describe as a love/hate relationship. Both in possession of some very stereotypical Aries traits, my dad and I challenged each other in many ways. Aries are renown for …

Memory Lane Monday – Mum

One of driving forces behind this new blog is to create a vault of stories and memories for my girls to look back upon when they are older. Not just about me and our life, but also about the grandparents they’ll never know. So I thought I’d kick off a regular weekly post called Memory …
