High Fidelity, Phoenix Players – A Review

A Night at the Theater I’ve been given the wonderful opportunity to see a local Canberra musical based on a cult movie that I’ve watched several times. It’s one of those classic movies where you feel a connection with the characters, and even though they’re all terribly flawed, you envy their position in life and…… Continue reading High Fidelity, Phoenix Players – A Review

A long weekend, a fig and port cake and a jar or two.

It was the Australia Day long weekend, and I had it all to myself. SO had taken the kids down the coast for 4 lovely days. I had the house to myself, the remote to myself, the bed to myself and the kitchen to myself.

A friend, a bag of rhubarb and a box of blood oranges

My friend Judy is a guru in the garden. I thought I had a super summer garden last year, but frankly, I’m a novice. A complete garden virgin. I planted my first productive garden in Nov 2013, and our haul of tomatoes, basil, peppers and chilli’s was pretty impressive for a first timer. Our winter…… Continue reading A friend, a bag of rhubarb and a box of blood oranges

In My Kitchen – November 2014

Welcome to my Kitchen for the month of November. I don’t know about you, but I can see, smell and feel Christmas from here. Tis only a Reindeer pellet throw away. I adore Christmas and everything to do with the season. I feel instant cheer when I see Christmas decorations, when I hear Christmas carols, and…… Continue reading In My Kitchen – November 2014
