My earliest memory of writing letters dates back to the 1960’s when I was about 10 years of age. A year before this when I was in year 4, a new pupil started at my school and soon Sally and I became friends. She lived on the street opposite mine, on the other side of the railway tracks and in those days, the tracks were not fenced so we would walk through the long grass and shrubs and across the tracks to visit Continue reading “From the heart”
Early Spring is my favourite time of the year as it symbolises change, new growth, sunshine, freshness and awakening.
We were married on the first day of Spring; my niece Kasey, my husband Greg and brother Mick were born in September; my marriage and family are the pivotal point of my life. I recall a Friday evening in the spring Continue reading “Season of Change”

The entrance to our condominium complex is shaped by an archway of frangipani trees which are thick and lush and provide shade and cooling from the Thailand heat. Each time I arrive at the entrance I feel the frangipani trees are Continue reading “Frangipani”
It took some time for me to contemplate the logo I wanted for my blog and eventually I decided on the theme “outside the box”. I often feel that I am “outside the box” as my life has been different from a traditional, mainstream life firstly as a young adult and secondly when married. On so many occasions when required to complete a document or form by ticking the appropriate box, I struggle to tick any of the boxes as the box I would choose Continue reading “Outside the Box”
I am an excellent speed typist with an amazing attention to detail. Sometimes I think I should have been a forensic detective.
I have a sound understanding of the English language and will admit at being annoyed when I see grammatical and spelling errors especially when using homophones such as stationery and stationary.
When communicating with people who speak English as a second or third language I am considerate, patient and kind. I have had opportunities to work with people from many cultures including Korean, Vietnamese, South Africans, Chinese, Thai, Filipinos and Aboriginal Australians.
I enjoy travelling to new places and countries that I have not been to before.
I like to exercise at the start of my day.
I am loyal and caring and have so many special friends. My family is the most important focus of my life.
I love talking and I love life.
