But our lives here would not be possible without one thing. This is has helped us survive in Sydney. Without it, we’d […]

On the 10th day of Advent, Sydney gave to me…scads of cool free treasures on every curb

So…after we moved into our awesome pad, I noticed some strange happenings in the hood. People abandon good treasures! They leave them out for all to procure. And, being frugal like I am, and loving to recycle and reuse, I found this to be the most magnificent of gifts! I’ve seen couches, barbeques, shelves, photo […]

I’ll be honest…I don’t get too over-the-top about Christmas. I love the actual holiday and what it means, and I love my family, but I don’t skip around playing holiday carols, waving candy canes in the air and wearing reindeer sweaters. But I’ve a visited a place that could convert me…THE CHRISTMAS CAVE! It claims […]

I love the water – specifically, I love the ocean. It’s my favourite place to be – it’s my inspiration, my center, my home. So when my hubba hubbie asked me if I wanted to move to Sydney, I said, “Heck yes!” Where else in the world could be live to be near so much […]
