We're coping a soaking...

June 4, 2014 was always going to be a challenge dear blogging friends,
Having said that I will take you out and about with me 
every day in June,
 as I live my daily life in Melbourne,
I find that joy of joys 
today I'm at the Doctors!

Yikes! I'm wondering how I'm going to get through this one 
with the whole world watching...

Puddles at Canterbury Gardens, Vic.
But before I take you to the Docs we have jobs to do
and the crazy poodle is bouncing off the walls wanting walking!
What's worse the official weather forecast was 
for Victoria to 'cop a soaking'
Yes it was raining....cats and dogs!

I ditch my normal park to return home after the school run 
to fetch an umbrella and put Mutt in a coat.
He's not that impressed. 
Yep he clearly feels a bit of a plonker in the posh park 
I've chosen for it's paved walkways.

The trendy little straight jacket that I bought him in the sales is great, 
it keeps him from smelling like a wet fish all day 
and also prevents him peeing on every tree that we pass.
All that velcro round his tummy & it's clearly hard to cock a leg...

Bless - I do love my dog
but not so much on rainy days!
Back from our walk, I refuse to let him inside the house.
He gets his own back by grubbing around in the garden!

Time to get to it! 
I've been working hard on clearing out my cupboards for my 
June into June minimalist challenge. 
Each day I am increasing by one thing, items to chuck out 
I'm seeking four things today....
A quick tidy of my herb drawer and four things are identified and jettisoned!

Look what I spotted on the way back from the park,
Recycling Bins!
These could be handy when I've got more to get rid of?

For my 30 Day Abs challenge we have a rest day today
Hooray, as my knees are still feeling it from the 1000 steps on Monday!

With the walk & housework over it's off to the Docs...
I didn't like to tell you earlier in case you clicked 'close'
but I'm here for my Well Woman checks!
Here is the surgery and that's as far as you are coming!
Bet you're relieved!!

Our Doctors surgery is a typical red brick building in the area

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
I might take you grocery shopping
I bet you can't wait!
Each day I am linking to a new meme 
Today I have chosen Outdoor Wednesday.
So glad you stuck with me to the end after that indelicate start!
Hello everyone, nice to meet you!

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 …

Life at Embassy Place.

We're on the move again, just call me Gypsy Wren!
We took a decision when we arrived in Bangkok to take a short-term lease at Embassy Place Apartments. We couldn’t stay longer because the place will be bulldozed to make way for a new high rise development. This week we said goodbye!

But as moving is what we do, and it seemed like half a plan to take this bigger, better and cheaper apartment, even with the hassle of moving out...
In the dizzy excitement of Bangkok apartment hunting, we knew the moment we walked up the drive, that this was the one we could happily call home. 
Come visit with me and see what you think...

I have been blessed to have lived in some of the world's most wonderful cities; Hong Kong, Brussels, and Melbourne but I'm a country girl at heart, I can’t live feeling hemmed in. 
I like the frenetic pace of life in these big cities, but I do need a retreat, a place of Zen calm.

I need to see light, have space and hear a decent dawn chorus. If I don't wake up t…
