    House sitting around the world

    House sitting around the world Why not dog, cat or house sit? It is great to care for animals and live in a home.  I left the UK back in October 2016 in search of a new life.  Although I feel very much at home in Bali,  it’s where I have been spending most of my time, I must say it’s really nice to experience a real home environment and be part of a wider community of people. Doing a bit of housesitting  you get to meet new people, and you don’t have to feel like you are a perennial tourist. Being a  dog walker or caring for a cat…

A journey to find a new home and to experience and see the wonders of life and living in a rich and beautiful planet. What did I learn along the way? What’s next?

    Inspiration in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia

    Inspiration in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia Wow – it’s been a long since I have been to the Blue Mountains, in NSW and I wasn’t disappointed with my weekend break in Katoomba. It rained the first day and as I was only fitted out with summer clothes so I retreated to the lovely cafes along the main street and visited a variety of small art galleries. The Bear Gallery was my favourite – definitely worth a walk further down the road to the larger Gallery space, in a white washboard house. They consistently show the work of 40 artists from around and connected to the Blue Mountains who live…

    Love is like a butterfly

    Love is like a butterfly … a rare and gentle thing…   All about Love and Loss I titled this post “Love is like a butterfly” because I have just been writing this post on the bus, and the song of the same title is playing very loudly which makes me smile!  In Sydney, drivers can play whatever music they like on their buses.   It floats through the air, so loudly I am unable to hear the Go-Betweens on my iPod. The music transports back to the to the  70’s sitcom show Butterflies.  It is also very apt as I am just been writing this blog post thinking about the…

    Top Ten Things in Sydney this week…

        1.  Sydney Writers Festival  22nd-28 May 2017 I will be seeing Robert Forster ex founding member of the Go-Betweens, he’s doing a talk at the Sydney Writer’s Festival.  He has written a book called GRANT & I.  I saw the Go-Betweens play live loads of times in London over the years.  They have recorded over 15 albums but never really hit the big time!  A bit like the Indie band I was in during the 90’s – never quite got there but had a lot of praise during their time. I will be seeing Liane Moriarty  author of The Husband’s Secret and Little Big Lies  – she was really popular in my book club…

    New beginnings & Endings… I fall in love with every country I visit Nepal, India, Bali, and currently Australia.I realise I have not just fallen in love with the country, I have fallen in love with life, and in doing so I have fallen in love with my own life!  The New beginnings for the month of May, it brings a month of many birthdays around me and this year it has been more significant as I turned 50!  For the last six months I have been traveling in Nepal, India, Bali and now I am in Sydney, Australia.  It wasn’t planned that I would be here for my birthday but I found myself here house sitting in…
