Darwin Before Dawn


Hi Guys ! Its been so long between posts and I miss my blog so much !!! I have been happily surprised with visits from friends and family in the last 2 and a half weeks so I have a lot of reading and writing to catch up on !

I will start with these pics I took a couple of weeks ago. I had dropped Dave off at the airport and was hanging around Darwin city waiting to start work. For some reason I thought it would be awesome to take photos of lights , in the dark , with an ordinary camera – oh yeah and I must also mention how shitty the flash is. So in a moment of what I thought was creative genius I took several photos thinking how awesome they would look and maybe I should change careers … then I loaded them on to the computer.

Lets just say if you were on acid you might agree I am a fucking genius. Otherwise you will probably just wonder if I was the one on acid that morning ……

I can tell you right now , if Darwin had a coffee shop that was open before 630 am these photos wouldn’t exist ! And they call it a city .. pfft what ever

I will finish this off with a teaser for my next post , the day I took my brother to on the Adelaide River Queen ….

Bless Her Little Fluffy Socks .. What Was She Thinking ?????


I love summer – it’s one of the main reasons I love the Top End of Australia so much.

There are some things I love about winter though – yummy comfort food like roast lamb dinners and hot chocolate , snuggling under my doona ( Duvet for all you non Aussies !) and rugging up in my comfiest winter PJ’s complete with fluffy bed socks .

The other day I was reminded of my love of fluffy socks when I passed a bargain bin in Woolworths containing not one but TWO pairs of fluffy socks for $3 ! Talk about a bargain ! Down south you are lucky to get one pair for under $7 so I snapped them up straight away like the clever girl that I am … So clever I didn’t stop to think why Woolworths were selling them at that awesome price .

I have since worked out that the reason fluffy socks are so cheap up here is because we don’t actually have a winter. We had our coldest April night in 40 years over the weekend , it was all over the news and locals could not stop complaining about how freezing it was. The temperature was 18 degrees. Not minus 18 degrees ,18 above zero my friends and that ,apparently, isΒ  ridiculously cold. I’m not at that stage yet ….

Any way I have no idea what I’m going to use these socks for. Cleaning comes to mind , they do look like they would come in handy when i need to dust the furniture ( yeah like that happens often !).

I searched google and came up with a few inspirational ideas …

If Chaos was smaller I could use them as little doggy jackets ..
