Skywatch Friday

One thing I love best about living in Australia is the vibrant blue sky.
It is one thing I will never take for granted 
especially after years of living under 
Hong Kong's polluted hazy skies.

Bulleen, Melbourne
Melbourne is known for it's four seasons in a day.
Our blue sky is ever changing.
Last Friday when we went on a walk 
the sky was full of fluffy clouds

Footscray Park, Melbourne
Here are more fluffy white clouds in Federation Square, 
downtown Melbourne

Federation Square, Melbourne
It's all storm clouds & rainbows at the football recently
perhaps reflecting Australia's valiant play at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil
... despite their World Cup dreams ending this week!

If you are new to my blog you won't have met Little Miss Hussy
she's a racehorse that we know.
Unfortunately, it's a permanent stormy day for us at the racetrack these days
as our filly is out at grass on her holidays at the moment,
resting, recovering...

Cranbourne racing training centre
Talking of holidays the end of the school term is in sight - Hooray!
Apart from the trip to Bangkok
we hope to spend some time at the beach.
It's the middle of winter here
so it won't be sunbathing weather.
but hopefully we will get some lovely sea air walks.

Anyone for Tennis?

At the Australian Open qualifying tournament... 

Are you ready for the first Grand Slam of the year? The Aus Open starts next week (Monday 13th - Sunday 26 January) but Melbourne is already in full swing (ha ha) with tennis players and tennis action. 

You can pay to watch some of the top seeded Men's players in action at the Kooyong Classic, just down the road. Or, you can join me for what I say is one of the best value tennis, indeed let's say sporting tickets in the world. The Australian Open qualifying tournament (Jan 8 -11), where you can wander in for free. Yes free!

The 'Qualies' is one of the secret treasures of the Aus Open where players compete and must win matches on three consecutive days to secure one of the last remaining spots in the main draw.
For the past seven years we have been a host family for tennis players, which is how we have become so familiar with the highs and lows of this lead up event... 
So would you like a sneak peak inside Melbourne Park, whi…

Life is not about finding ourselves it is about creating ourselves! George Bernard Shaw

Cooee! It's me calling in from Thailand. Sorry, it's been a while, it's been a tad busy. Still, we've not done badly. We've moved into our temporary apartment and are well on the way to finding something more permanent. We're overlooking the American Embassy compound, which is acres of impressive greenery in amongst the high rise buildings. I love it, I can even hear the little birds sing in the morning.
So welcome to my new life as .... drum roll please, Hmmm actually, I have no bleedin’ idea, so how about Bangkok Blogger for now?
How would you feel if you were to arriving in a new country, where you know no-one, and you're not even sure what your life will entail? For me, it was a feeling of excitement, crossed with a rolling of the eyes, a smile and my 'here we go again' expression. 
Of course, this always happens Mr Wren was away travelling and so I rocked up for …

Life at Embassy Place.

We're on the move again, just call me Gypsy Wren!
We took a decision when we arrived in Bangkok to take a short-term lease at Embassy Place Apartments. We couldn’t stay longer because the place will be bulldozed to make way for a new high rise development. This week we said goodbye!

But as moving is what we do, and it seemed like half a plan to take this bigger, better and cheaper apartment, even with the hassle of moving out...
In the dizzy excitement of Bangkok apartment hunting, we knew the moment we walked up the drive, that this was the one we could happily call home. 
Come visit with me and see what you think...

I have been blessed to have lived in some of the world's most wonderful cities; Hong Kong, Brussels, and Melbourne but I'm a country girl at heart, I can’t live feeling hemmed in. 
I like the frenetic pace of life in these big cities, but I do need a retreat, a place of Zen calm.

I need to see light, have space and hear a decent dawn chorus. If I don't wake up t…
