Found in Footscray...


I love my fabulous Fridays working in Footscray
Footscray is one of those Melbourne suburbs
which let's just say has proudly enjoyed a colourful past.


There is always something interesting to look at in Footscray.
What about this bright blue house?
Is this a garden full of art
 - trash or treasure? 


Every time I walk by I see something else that captures my attention,
like the blue Australia hat on the top of the wooden post.
I reckon a fair amount of work has gone into this garden 
at one stage or another...
But I do wonder what the neighbours say?!


It does make you wonder how the Postie 
ever finds the post box?!


One thing I always stop to read are the quotes on the side fence:

'The greatest wealth in life is health and wisdom!'



Footscray promotes fabulous street art offering an annual Street Art prize
How about this one, it is a combinations of lots of other walls
that I find out and about on my wanderings!
Do you remember last weeks Footscray Bulldog?
Here he is again in miniature!

Finding Makatron's Street Art is a fun way of exploring Footscray!



Have a great week everyone!

Friendship Friday!

Hello dear friends in Blogland. How are you doing? I am pleased to be here for Friendship Friday
I've had a great week and have well and truly settled back into my Asian life  where I am enjoying making new friends both locally and in here in the blogosphere.


I've had fun, I have joined a new group - the American Women's Club of Thailand.
Why the American's when you're a British Aussie? You may well ask. Well firstly they take anyone, these Expat women's groups really are not that fussy!

Well, except for the ANZWG Group where you need to be closely associated with Australia and New Zealand. I am, I have the passport and I have a family, home and of course an Aussie Crazy Poodle Down Under and I miss my Melbourne life terribly,  but my life in Thailand is more about meeting women from around the globe.

I have always had lots of American friends, I chat with many Americans via my blog...

... anyway they let this little bird in and she's chirpy about that!

The Expat - an A to Z of how not to make friends.

Ok, so I have now officially disgraced myself with the Americans…
A little bit of backstory, I moved to Bangkok eighteen months ago. It was a tricky move coming from the eight times winner of the ‘World’s Most Liveable City’ Melbourne, Australia to one of the most polluted, congested and the world’s hottest capital city… I gave up a meaningful job that I loved, in the Not-for-Profit sector to become a lady of leisure.

I threw myself into life here. I enjoyed the travel and getting to know Bangkok, and we had loads of visitors, but this year everything changed when we moved into our forever place in Bangkok. Hated it, nothing worked, was miserable, so had a great summer traveling the globe visiting family and friends instead.


Back in Bangkok, ready to immerse back into my Thai life, I am moving into a new apartment and ready to make some new friends, I joined a few expat organisations…
I know, I know being an Expat sounds glamorous, we have left the homeland, or in my case homelands, and j…

The Last Rose Of Summer

I spotted this poppet of a pink rose against the crumbling English church wall this week. It reminded me of the song 'The Last Rose of Summer':
'Tis the last rose of summer left blooming alone. All her lovely companions are faded and gone.' Thomas Moore
Quite how this melancholy song slipped into our normally upbeat,  think 'My old man said follow the van', family singalongs, I don't know.  But since then, I've always looked for my last rose of summer!


The last rose of Summer got me thinking how Winter has well and truly appeared in the United Kingdom. She slipped in unannounced after an endless summer. On the back of the gritter lorries, with witty names like Grittie McVittie, Brad Grit, or Spready Mercury, busy throwing salt to stop roads freezing over. 


Wren's thought for the day: There is a stoic cheerfulness here despite a gloomy outlook in more ways than one... Brexit remains a monumental looming moment in British history but it’s anyone’s guess how t…
