Life is something that happens when .....

I love that quote because it is definately typifying my life at the moment....

Much as i dream of our trip and our life in Australia....it is very much in the future because our  life now is getting in the way! Working full time can sometimes be very full time. 

I have done a little work on the blog .....the new name I think is here to stay! And I really hope to get a new look sorted in the next few months too - I need to network! Though I must say I feel quite a lot older then most bloggers I am following....especially all the travellers....but there must be room out there for a late 40 something wanderer too I think.

It is grey, dark and quite miserable in the UK at the moment and I am dreaming of blue skies and sunshine. The light box may have to make an appearance if it gets any worse. I have always struggled with the winter months in the northern hemisphere and it does not get any easier year after year.

Getting my head around my blog

Well I am still working on improving my blog and have just discovered today that you can buy templates ALREADY DONE on Etsy!!!!! Well that will be my next stop to improve things!

I am also exploring new more effective (hopefully) names..... 

Watch this space as they say!

Off for a bit of r and r in London

Well i have decided to have a mini break and am at the present moment on a very empty train down to London.....



I am off to spend some quality time with my daughter's godparents who i have known for 25 years....they were our next door neighbours when we lived in South Africa and i met them when i was in my final year of my BA degree at Wits University.

I was thinking the other day of the places in the world i have been lucky enough to see and in some cases live in and where my next priorities are....

The trip from Moscow to Beijing via the Trans-Mongolian express has to be one highlight to look forward to and Vietnam and Cambodia are the countries i am particularly excited about....oh and Phi Phi in Thailand....

There seems to be so much world to see and hopefully in the New Year more concrete plans will materialise...

Not long to go now....

Well after nearly 12 weeks in Norway my husband is nearly due home....another 10 days or so. There is even more snow and he has tried (unsucessfully) to build a snowman! The snow is too powdery though so he didnt have sucess. Not bad really for a guy who really doesnt like snow...

I have been playing around with Polyvore creating all sorts of pretty sets....travel isnt far from my mind. I have a few orders to get out for my business and then i am shutting shop for Christmas. These seem to have been shared on my blog....I really do need to learn how to run a blog in the. New Year...I think that is a resolution!!!!

My daughter has an interview at Oxford University next week which is very exciting.....So all in all a good month!



House decorations have started with avengeance. 

And plans are starting on our trip to South-East Asia.... Well a map is on my dining room wall!


On another note....The World lost the most amazing leader and man this week - 


Its snowing in Norway and you must see these pictures

How beautiful is this.....
