Living in the Foothills of the Dandenongs, Close to the Yarra Valley, Melbourne Victoria, Australia

I may have retired from work but theres no way I’ve retired from life! ‘So what do you do’ someone asked me. ‘I live, love and laugh’ I replied. ‘oh and travel as much as possible’ Come along and join in my life and travels – I’ll be happy to have you there with me

  1. Enjoyed your post about the ox tongue lily on blogspot – thanks


    • Thanks you for that – I’m glad you found it interesting . I have managed to import all the blogger posts to wordpress which is great.


      • Not an easy thing to do, so well done. Do you know what the best location is for an ox tongue lily? We have recently been given one by a friend and am not sure about aspect.


  2. I have been to Queensland many times when Mum and Dad ere living there, but I have not visited Melbroune. In Auckland, they advertise Melbourne as a shopping city. Is it true?


  3. Hello – Lovely to “meet” you via Goodnight Gram’s blog. I see that you live in the Dandenongs – just loved visiting there when we were in Australia about 6 years ago. We went on Puffing Billy!

    Hope to bump into you again.


    • Hello there
      Thanks for dropping in and introducing yourself. Its been a while since we were on Puffing Billy but its a fun day when we do. Love to park near the big trestle bridge if I’m in the area and watch when it goes over and see all the kids with their legs hanging over the side


  4. Hello there ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Hello Owl
      Thank you for dropping in – perhaps you’d like to introduce yourself


      • My pleasure, I really like your blog and knitting projects.

        Oh dear..and there I just went all shy, and havent the foggiest idea about what to write about ‘me’.

        Well I only really took up knitting in earnest a few months ago, after only ever having knitted the odd scarve over the years. But I have always admired the craft, and some of my fondest memories growing up is sitting very silently just watching my grandmother, or my nanny and her friends get together for some knitting/crocheting or tappisterie making ๐Ÿ™‚

        There is a little bit more about me on my About me section on my blog.

        Take care,
        Owl ๐Ÿ™‚


  5. I love your response! I intend to have a similar attitude when it’s my turn ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. PS Thanks for following my blog ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. Thank you for following my blog. Retirement is great – don’t know how I ever found the time to go to work!


  8. I will go along with โ€˜live, love and laughโ€™! I like to live today…. just in case it is my last, I’d hate to waste it!


  9. Hi Cathy. Thanks for following my blog. I am returning the favor. Looking forward to following the goings on down under. Your header picture is spectacular!

    So Cathy, I guess you have just become one of The Spikeyโ€™s, that small clan of folk known to be followers of Uncle Spike ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank youโ€ฆ I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my โ€˜point n shootโ€™ attempts at photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures since the 70โ€ฒs, as well as day to day happenings on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it. Of course, if you have any suggestions for me, Iโ€™d love to hear from you, serious.

    In return, I promise not to be overbearing with perhaps 2-3 posts a day tops. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe youโ€™ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again for your vote of confidence, and hope you have a great dayโ€ฆ

    Kerry x
