2022 Week 2 Diary & Projects

I’m having fun using my new diary which is great. However, I feel compelled to say that it doesn’t feel like a new year to me, not yet anyway. 2021 didn’t feel like a new year either. It’s like 2020 never actually ended. Things feel quite strange at the moment. Different parts of Australia are…

2022 Week 1 Where to begin?

I’m beginning right here. It’s the first Sunday of the New Year. This blog will continue to be various ramblings of whatever for the next year, on a weekly basis. I’m starting university in February so that might feature and who knows what else 🙂 Currently in Australia we are experiencing the reality of the…

2021 Week 52 We made it :)

Here we are, the end of the year 2021. It’s New Years eve and it’s Friday, so for once I’m here writing early. Mostly I would like to thank my family for being themselves and for loving me so generously. For all the hugs and for their trust. I love them all so much. I…

2021 Week 51 It’s Christmas :)

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it and good wishes to absolutely everyone regardless holidays! I’m sharing some pictures of our lovely feast. We spent the day together swimming, laughing and generally having a happy time. The power went out later in the day, very unfortunate as we were having a heatwave and it was…

2021 Week 50 Tea Pot

I love tea pots. I think they are beautiful and because I also love tea, they are useful. Along my wanderings across the internets, I came upon a video about very special tea pots called Zisha. Hope you like the video as much as I did 🙂 In other news around here, we are getting…

2021 Week 49 All the visitors :)

We had lots of friends come this weekend. On Friday night friends came to stay the night and we talked, shared food and did lots of swimming in the pool too. I made dinner for everyone which was very simple as my friend requested dahl, which we ate with rice. All the kids wanted pretty…

2021 Week 48 Whoosh

That is the sound of time flying by once again! With all my writing for Home Education for next years meeting with the Education Department finished over a week ago, it’s time to focus on my other list of projects. There are many of them! Over the Christmas holidays I plan to get a worm…

2021 Week 47 Say Yes…

If you like drama and dresses I can recommend heading to my favourite place Youtube and typing in “Say Yes to the Dress” in the search bar. I love watching these shorts from the show so much. There are episodes from England and America and each bride choosing a dress is quite a journey. Some…

2021 Week 46 Summertime

It’s almost summer here and the pool is already in use 🙂 I’ve been told that we are expecting a hotter than usual summer. I’m hoping that is wrong. I like summer. I do not like being hot. So I’m more of a cold weather loving person. Positive aspects of summer are bbq’s, swimming, lovely…

2021 Week 45 Practice

This week we tried out our Steam Boat. A practice run before we have my in-laws over :)It was delicious and a lot of fun. Mum and I found great Chinese grocery shop and bought quite a few of our ingredients there. We also bought a self-heating meal which actually wasn’t bad, though for $11…
