X marks the GIVEAWAY spot!



There was a bit of a problem today with the plan to Wander Victoria* and bring you daily A to Z delights of my home state of Victoria, Australia.  

Yep, you guessed it... there are no XXXX'ing towns or cities starting with X in the State! We even struggle across the whole country, unless we decide to go to Xantippe in Western Australia and it was tempting just to see!

So today we are doing something different we (yes we're in this together) are three posts off completing what for me will be my biggest month of blogging ever! And to celebrate I'd like to offer a giveaway. 

Entry is simple - just leave your name and blog details below in the comments section or e-mail me at Wrensrambles@gmail.com.au. I am adding all of you who have already commented throughout April A to Z, one entry per comment, plus for those not on Google + and who have e-mailed me direct, you are included too, no worries!

And drumroll please here is what you will win...



Just to look at this is more detail, the giveaway does not include the orchid in the pot, that is just there to make the picture look pretty! You will get, posted where ever you live in the world... The blue wren fine bone china mug was bought on my travels for the April A to Z blogs. It was made in China ha ha but Can you guess where I bought it?  




Also, there was one place this month where we spotted some blue wrens who remembers where?! The final part of my giveaway is the eco bird feeder, the simple, elegant way of recycling unwanted food to attract the little birds into your garden.




This giveaway will remain open for comments until midnight Sunday Melbourne time.
Good Luck to you all!

Thank you to all of you who have joined me on this April A to Z Challenge 
and encouraged me along the way, it means a lot, 
you have really warmed my heart.

Linking with thanks to Jenny Matlock at Warm Heart Wednesday

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…

Bangkok Blogger

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 …

Keep Calm And Birthday On!

So far I'm onto my fourth country celebrating my birthday. Usually, I don't fuss much about birthdays, I'm not one for the big girls night out, or to treat myself with a big splurge... 
But this year is different. I've moved country. I now have a new visa in my passport enabling me to stay in the Kingdom of Thailand until May 2018. I'm away from the kids and the dog and Mr Wren looked at his work calendar, scratched his head and declared a meeting with dinner on my birthday.

I thought for a moment about pulling the old 'I can't believe you've got a meeting with dinner on my birthday AND it's International Women's Day' complaint, but wait a moment, no... That's a perfect excuse to celebrate with everyone, everywhere! 
'Hey, but I thought you said  you never bothered much about birthdays...'
I can hear him call out as I am part way to booking a flight to Malaysia and using all his Airmiles for a return trip to the UK!

He's right, I&#…
