Day +413: Rain!

The rain sure came down last weekend! So much so that we lost power for three days after a tree came down and took our the power lines in our street, and blocked off the road as well. It took the folks at Ausgrid that long to get to us- but there was a lot […]

Day +317: Hope

H.O.P.E. A simple, 4-letter word that carries with it the meaning of life. Without hope, there is no life. I’m not talking about the “I hope I win the lottery” sort of hope. I’m talking about the “help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope” kinda hope. Hope is what we live for. It’s […]

Day +289: Reality

Day +136: Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there in Australia and New Zealand; I think that’s the only 2 countries that are celebrating the day today (some have already had it, whilst some Scandinavian countries have theirs in November). It’s been a rainy weekend- just drizzle, so not really enough to ruin any plans. […]

Day +129: The Happiest Place on Earth

We got no troubles, life is the bubbles (“Under The Sea”, from the Little Mermaid)– only if this were the case! But rather, life is full of stresses and responsibilities, whether that be family, friends, money, work- and usually it’s a combination of all of these things. We all need something “magical” to believe in. […]
