The other day I was looking for something on my own blog and couldn’t find it. “That’s not good” I thought. If I can’t find it, who can? As I am a very sharp cookie indeed, it didn’t take me long to work out the problem. You see, I was looking for something in my [...]

Maroochy River

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, we have had a very busy weekend. Action packed! So what did we do? Well, Good Friday was our quietest day but we still managed to have our favourite Australian family round for a barbecue.
