2015 - the year that was

I really wondered about what to post today - and then thought - why not the year that was.  So here it is - just a few memories in pictures with links to where I blogged about them. I was given redundancy -"accepted early retirement" in April, and my life has certainly had a few changes not going to a "paid" job every day.  Just as well I think because I never would have been able to fit all this in! 

Below are some of my travels from 2015.  You can see some of my published work from this year here - Published work

Remembering those we have loved

 These beautiful kangaroo paws are flowering in my garden right now in time for Christmas, and I am reminded to take time to see and experience the beauty around us and the joy we can gain from simple things. 

I wish all my dear blogging friends a lovely Christmas season spent in the company of those they love.  Thank you so much for your support this year and for taking the time to stop by and say hi. I really appreciate every one of you.

Went down to the beach to play one day



It is summer here in Australia. School is nearly finished and the summer holidays are nearly here. 
I found this poem in an old poetry book - and I liked the images it provoked. So I put together a few photos and created a mosaic to share with the poem with you.....
 
ps - there are no capitals because that's how it was in the book -

December Randomosity

I don't know about you but I feel that December is speeding up as we head towards the Christmas season and the end of the year.  I seem to have so much to do between now and Christmas. My husband has started our Christmas cards and put up our outside lights. I haven't even put up our tree and or started baking yet!  
So to take some of the pressure off, today I am just sharing a few random images from my world - in no particular order.
