Fab Florence - You've got the love, we've got the moves!

Florence and the Machine

Sidney Myer Music Bowl 
Melbourne, Australia 
Wednesday 11th November


Woo Hoo. Look at us! 
The whole family enjoying indie rock band Florence and the Machine in Melbourne this week
Such fun, up the front amongst the Bands friends. 
When Florence Welch says 'turn and hug the people around you', you do as told.
I hugged a very glamorous lady next to me, 
'Who are you?' I asked, "I'm the backing singers friend," she replied! 
'Who are you???' she questioned. "I'm Little Wandering Wren" I replied 
"Oh!" she said 
I think I carried it off well.


Until the 'Psst Mum, what are you doing?'
I'm dancing, like Florence! I replied.
'No, Mum, no!'
How then? 
'When in doubt copy the backing singers' moves' says daughter no 1

I think we carried it off well
Me, my daughter, the backing singers and the backing singer's friend
We've got the moves!


'Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
 Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord I just don't care"                        
But you've got the love I need to see me through'



'Sometimes it seems the going is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
But you've got the love I need to see me through'




When friends are gone I know my savior's love is real
You know it's real
Cause you got the love.






'You got the love 
You got the love
You got the love 
You got the love
You got the love 
You got the love'




Time after time I think it's just no good But

'Cause sooner or later in life, the things you love you lose
But you got the love I need to see me through.'



'You got the love 
You got the love
You got the love 
You got the love
You got the love 
You got the love'



'Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
'Cause I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord I just don't care" 
'You've got the love I need to see me through'

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…
