Living my Passion

Recently we uprooted and moved interstate to a warmer climate for my health. We left behind 25+ years in our first family home with lots of memories. You see, Earlier this year we came across a wonderful opportunity to move/build our life northwards and forwards.  We weren't planning to move so quickly, but the Universe clearly had a different plan for us. We grabbed the oppor...

Holidaying with Pets

A holiday without the dogs?  I think NOT :-) Each year, when we go on our annual holiday – which coincides with our wedding anniversary, we travel to one of our favourite holiday destinations. Of course our dogs come along too.  We wouldn’t think of leaving them at home. So we select our accommodation based on places where dogs are very welcome too. For work we travel to our favou...

I barely recognise myself these days.  I am definitely not the same person as I was 10 years ago. Life experiences have definitely changed me as some of the most stressful events of my life happened in the past decade.  I lost ...

My lungs have had a bit of a workout in recent years with pneumonia and bronchiectasis. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, when I caught pneumonia for the third time, the GP threatened to admit me to hospital. I decided that I didn’t want to go to hospital.
