Day 24 of 30

Tonight I am reliving my childhood years. Getting dressed up, wearing my black patent leather lace up boots and my best dress. Saturday nights at the Greek cinema in Oakleigh. A black and white newsreel, followed by a double feature. They were special Saturday nights. Greek cinema of the sixties was formulaic, but uplifting. Invariably […]

Day 23 of 30

Wow, what a morning!!! I got up early and threw on my walking gear. It is an eclectic neighbourhood, and it is one of the many things that I love about it. Elderly Europeans that bought here when they first arrived in Australia, students and staff from the local universities, upwardly mobile professionals with young […]

In the mid nineties I left the world of paper towel and facial tissues behind to enter the world of wine. At the time all I drank was Wolf Blass White Label. I knew nothing about wine and I was terrified. It didn’t take long for the concept of an AFD (Alcohol Free Day) to […]

I belong to nextdoor, an app that connects people in the same neighbourhood. In my naivety I thought it would be a good way to reconnect with the local community…that was before Covid-19 hit. Of more recent times there has been A LOT of communication around how people SHOULD and SHOULD NOT behave in the […]

Day 20 of 30

Cleaning things out is cathartic, it also brings back wonderful memories of times long forgotten. Today I sent photos to my two god-daughters. Wonderful memories of their very much younger days. I also found photos from a trip to Tahiti in 1991. I have traveled extensively. I love to experience different places and cultures. I […]

Day 19 of 30

I’m in isolation on my own. Having recently moved house I have deliberately taken the unpacking and setting up of the house slowly. I find a lot of things to occupy my time with so I’m not complaining. Despite the difficulties of isolation, we are incredibly lucky. Technology makes it much more bearable. On Thursday […]

Day 18 of 30

We all know the sacrifice that we are making for the common good. I for one thank you for doing what is best for all. I’m not worried about myself, because in my mind I am still 30 and invincible. Today I want to share a memory from about that time. My friend (who shall […]

Day 17 of 30

Today I succumbed to the lure of on-line shopping. I bought some bathrooms accessories, hand wash and an iPhone photography course. Honestly, I had been considering the photography course for a while, but the others were more a means of passing the time. It has brought up some interesting emotions. Guilt. I feel guilty that […]

Day 16 of 30

I have been procrastinating today, I really want to write about Easter. Most years Orthodox Easter and the Easter that the rest of the Christian world celebrated did not coincide. As a primary school aged child I did not need one more reason to be “different” in my predominantly white Anglo Saxon school. First I […]

Day 15 of 30

I’ve just decided what to have for dinner tonight. Not that I think you’re remotely interested, but it is a great example of pivoting on the edge of a dime. Otherwise known as necessity is the mother of invention. At the risk of sounding like an Uber Eats ad…tonight I’m having steak, with asapargus and […]
