I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

  1. Great entry Jo! All are beautiful photos, but children always touch my heart of hearts. Those are two very precious captures of little ones.


    1. Oh Cap’n – that wee lad is no longer with us. He died from heart complications he was born with a long time ago. His mother was a very old friend of mine from my teenage/early twenties.


    1. Not well !!!
      These were made by a bunch of different ladies for the local market we have each month. I did make a rather good beetroot chutney (I am not a huge chutney fan) that a friend gave me the recipe for that is absolutely delicious.


    1. Thank you. He was a rather special little man. It was almost weird the way it happened. I was overseas but went home unexpectedly for a visit and was staying with my friend the night he died. We all felt he waited for me to be there for his Mum.


    1. She had five. And I nearly accidentally threw one out in to the rubbish when I cleaned the cage after she gave birth…luckily I found him before it was too late. Yes I am in New Zealand. I hope you make it out here – a wonderful place is our NZ. Where is your son ?


  2. Love all the photos particularly the first and third. I felt sad though cause I noticed that the little boy had an R.I.P. on it and looks like he only made it till 2. If its true that he is no longer with us on earth, I pray that he’s now in heaven, having the happiest time everyday. I pray for his parents too…God bless them always. Thanks for sharing such endearing images…


  3. a great post – full of stories, running the gamut of emotions.
    the guineau pig made me smile – bringing back childhood memories of gerbils. originally there were only two gerbils…. enough said. it was actually a relief to finally find a home for all of them 🙂
    the little boy’s story is sad. blessings to his family – am sure they must still miss him. but i am sure they have some great memories of him – including this one.
    thanks for sharing.


There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
