We are currently staying in the hills of Bellingen. A beautiful spot but with lots and lots of crawly things.

Here are some pics of my mum’s place to give you a flavour. I promise once I clear all my stuff off the floor I will take some shots of the inside.


Just sorting through some pics from our recent trip and found this one of the beach near our campsite. Such a beautiful part of the world.

Barley Cove, West Cork, Ireland.

Well I’m back from my little trip away. D and I headed down to the bottom of Ireland for some b&bing / camping. I went for my first real swim in the ocean since arriving in Ireland.  Wow! it was cold but I managed to stay in for about 20 minutes. Below is a pic of our first evening in a little hamlet in West Cork. If you are ever visiting West Cork I highly recommend O’Sullivans in Crookhaven for the best open crab sandwich in the world! In the world people! And I didn’t even take a photo of it because somethings should just be enjoyed without taking a photo of it. 🙂 Plus I scoffed most of it before thinking maybe I should have taken a photo. But I did take a photo of our drinks to send to friends to make them jealous.

My friend has just returned from an exhausting holiday in France. Thats not sarcasm, I really do feel sorry for her as it looks like she was actually working and not lying around drinking wine. This beautiful house in Brittany is now ready for holiday lets. The house has three bedrooms – 2 double and one twin, combined lounge and dining room, separate large kitchen, walled garden for children to play in plus much more. So check out the site for more details and availability. The site is packed with info on the house and the surrounding areas.

Looks like a fab place to spend a week or two. And its reasonably priced which means more money for wine!

Hi All, I am absolutely wrecked after the weekend and I did nothing! I had great plans to buy a blank canvas and whip up a painting for the bedroom. Ha – that makes it sound like I can paint. Then I was going to make cushion covers for the armchairs. In reality I drank too much wine on Friday night, spent most of Saturday on the sofa feeling sorry for myself only making it outside when the hunger got too much. Then Sunday I just mooched around the apartment starting several tasks and completing none. So why am I so tired? Anyway here is where my Friday night partner in crime is now residing for two weeks. Although she will be working on the house during her holiday I am still very jealous.

This place is a holiday rental and I will pass on the details when I get more shots of the interior.

Originally we had planned a walking tour of The Dingle Way for my dads visit but it was not to be. First up my back injury was still on the mend. Then the volcano ash delayed my dads flight. However they eventually landed in Ireland three days later. We decided to still tackle part of the walk but the night before heading down to Dingle my dad picked up a nasty stomach bug. It took two days before he felt better but then my little brother caught the bug! We gave it another day before giving up on the idea of Dingle. But all was not lost as we decided on a two day trip to Carlingford before they had to head back to Australia. Carlingford is only about an hours drive from Dublin and has everything you need in a short trip away. Mountains to climb, water for staring at or splashing in, medieval castles, great pubs and excellent restaurants! Here are some pics I took and edited on my iPhone. I downloaded a fantastic app for editing. And I am writing this post on my iPhone! IPhones are the business!

It’s my last day. 😦 I am very sad to leave Paris. Some lovely pics coming up soon once I go through the photos on my camera. I managed a visit to the wonderful shop Merci. I got a little over excited and only left with some tape and a stamp? But D got some lovely shots of the store while I drooled over everything. Coming soon. Here is the shot I took on my phone.
