Welcome to my page and thank you for dropping by to see what’s happening on my blog.
I’m married, a Mum of two and grandma to a cute little pup, Daisy. I live in Brisbane, Australia and enjoy getting out and about in our camper trailer, discovering the Great South East of Queensland and Northern New South Wales. We’re so lucky here, we have such beautiful places right on our doorstep! Through my blog, I hope to show you some of these spots as we discover them ourselves.
Besides getting out in the camper, I also love travelling nationally and overseas. In my leisure time I enjoy photography, cooking, reading, writing, handcrafts, art, and spending time with family and friends.
A bit of a “foodie”, I love finding new cafés and restaurants but also enjoy those rare days when I can get into the kitchen to bake, preserve and make delicious meals. I’ll be sharing some of my favourite recipes with you, hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
My most recent qualification was a Diploma in Community Services (Leisure and Lifestyle) which was relevant to my work as a Diversional Therapist. I have had a varied work life, being an office junior, bank employee, maternity nurse, executive secretary, and a Diversional Therapist. I have a strong sense of community and have done a variety of voluntary work over the years: parent helper at the kids’ schools, tuck shop, book club, preschool P & F, parent helper at scouts, cuddle Mum at Mater Children’s Hospital, Rosie’s Friends of the Street and Cub Scout Leader.
The kids are now older and it’s time for me! I’ve always enjoyed writing and figure if I’m going to do something with writing, now is the time! As well as my blog I currently write for several websites: Starts at Sixty, Over60, Hub Garden, Weekend Notes and MustdoBrisbane. I enjoy writing about the “old days” which is what I do for Starts at Sixty and Over 60. My love for travel, camping and food lead me to writing for Weekend Notes and MustdoBrisbane, which I’m enjoying very much.
I hope you enjoy my blog as we discover great food, interesting destinations and more.
