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'

Vitamin Sea and Orchid Friendship Thailand

Hello, hello, I hope you are all doing well where ever you are reading this in the world! Thank you to all of you for your lovely comments on my last post and encouragement to Wander on Wren !  I'm glad you are happy to travel vicariously through me, I  know some of you are in deteriorating situations with COVID-19.  I am forever grateful that my Bangkok life enables me the freedom to travel the country - at the moment. So with this, I will bring you some Vitamin Sea from Phuket, Thailand. The weather was feisty and rather moody this past weekend in 𝐏𝐡𝐮𝐤𝐞𝐭, but we didn’t care. ⁣ It’s always like this here in 𝐒𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐧 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝 in August as the strong 𝐒𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐡 𝗪𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐌𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐨𝐨𝐧 𝐰𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 gathers pace. I love the rainy season and the cooling air it brings!  We’ve lost power, we’ve lost water supplies, but we know we are the lucky ones. ⁣ Turn on the news, speak to our friends and family in far off places, and we know how lucky we are in Thailand. ⁣ T

Little Wandering Dippy Wren

Hello, hello how are we all doing? All is good in my little world here in Thailand. I've just got back into my Bangkok nest from a wonderful trip to Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand.  Without the 40 million overseas visitors that were anticipated here in 2020, life is tough for those in the tourism industry. I am trying to do my bit and get out and about, to see more of the country whilst things are quiet. It is an amazing time to travel, there are some incredible deals for locals, thankfully! It's a good job too as  unfortunately, I did something a bit dim!  Have you ever been on holiday without your purse? Yep, no money, no credit card, nothing! I don't recommend it unless you  A. want to lose weight or  B. want to update your LinkedIn profile with Born Survivor ! I'm on a quest to check out Thailand at the moment for the solo female traveller. We have a super safe country for female travel. I'm in the most popular demographic (over 50's) for solo travel. So I

Thailand's Elephant Tourism

Hello and greetings to you from Bangkok. I have just finished an incredible week of travel looking at Thailand's elephant care tourism. Thailand was expecting 40 million visitors this year, the pandemic closed the borders and has decimated all aspects of Thai tourism. I was one of eight bloggers, journalists and influencers invited by the Tourism Authority of Thailand to learn more about the current situation for elephant care. I came with a clear set of assumptions that : Elephants are wild animals and should be in the wild. Riding elephants for tourism is not something I would support. Elephant circus and tourist shows should be abolished. In 2018 for my birthday, we attended the annual fundraising King's Cup Anantara Elephant Polo . The monies raised went to support amongst others the  Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp and Resort. We spent our honeymoon at this wonderful elephant sanctuary and I was keen to contribute towards their work.   We joined a dawn yoga lesson
