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!

It's a funny old world!

Welcome to Racha Island Hello everyone and greetings from Phuket, Thailand THAILAND THOUGHTS Thailand where we have now reopened the country and are ready to welcome international fully vaccinated arrivals without quarantine to our beautiful island.  For all the details check out  Phuket Sandbox: Would you, should you, could you?   This month another southern island Koh Samui followed along. There are slightly different arrangements with guests to stay within their arrival hotel for three days before supplying a negative Covid test. This gives freedom to roam the island, after 7 days, visitors can also visit the islands of Koh Phangan and Koh Tao. For all the details check out: Welcome back to Thailand via Koh Samui plus All this as Thailand records the highest Covid numbers and death rates ever recorded and stricter measures have been released across the worst affected Provinces.  There is a plan for more of the country to open and the idea was for Thailand to fully reopen to vaccinat

Perfect Phuket - Hello from the other side

Hello from the beach! Spoiler alert if you are snowed in, pandemic bound or just plain jack of 2021 already, you might want to flick straight onto the next blog! On the other hand, if you are looking for some escapism and to tag along for the virtual ride, stick around! We came for Christmas and we haven't left yet,  so I've only got pictures of sunshine and palm trees and empty beaches waiting for tourists return. Bangkok is still a designated High controlled area.  Schools, shopping malls and gyms have reopened and homeworking for some companies remain in place or operating on a limited A-B team return to work. Pubs and Bars, gambling venues including cockfighting and soapy massage remain closed. Ha, let's see who is reading this closely and no I have no idea what a soapy massage is! Most of my friends are more concerned about the booze ban and pollution in Bangkok but here at the beach, life is calm, quiet and rosy! Phuket has removed it's 14-day Quarantine for those

Hello from my corner of the world

Hello, hello how are we all doing?  I am sorry that I have been absent around here for so long. I can't really think of any excuses except for a certain global pandemic, which remains a distraction in our daily lives here in Thailand.  Still, I am pleased you can join me today as I bring you up to date for some good, random, Friday bliss and fun from Phuket. We are fine.  Like many of our neighbours in South East Asia, our Covid-19 situation here in Thailand had deteriorated over recent weeks. However, with strict measures in place to curtail the rise in cases, we are all hopeful for the arrival of the first international visitors into Phuket from July 1st.  We came to the island of Phuket in Southern Thailand for our Christmas holidays, and have remained largely based here ever since, as many Bangkok offices have requested home working. THE GOOD Phuket has been a blessed stay and we feel so fortunate to be here. I've written about this more here: Working from the beach, (WFB)
