1. No Ordinary Mother
No Ordinary Mother
But she never thought so. If asked what she 'did', she would usually reply - "Oh, I don't know. Nothing much really. I'm just a housewife and mother". Nothing? Really? Well, no Mum...you were wrong. Genetically and environmentally, my Mum's life certainly began in an 'ordinary' fashion, the midd...

2. Schooldays Downunder - Australia in the 1950's
Schooldays Downunder - Australia in the 1950's
I wish I had something unforgettable to report about my first day at school in 1950 - but apart from the obvious pride in finally being big enough for school - it remains mainly a kaleidoscope of remembered smells more than anything else. (I think my photo leaves little doubt about how I felt on ...

3. 'We'll All Be Rooned'
'We'll All Be Rooned'
(Alias 'John O'Brien' - his pseudonym - arguably used to protect his real identity - as an Australian Roman Catholic Priest) An avid student of Australian literature, his poetic works continued the themes embraced by predecessors such as Henry Lawson and 'Banjo' Paterson. Like them, P.J. loved t...

4. Soft Toy Shuffle
Soft Toy Shuffle
The Soft Toy Children are restless. There seems to be much to-ing and fro-ing as they sort of 'soft shoe shuffle' around. They are even threatening strike action of some kind. It's all a little worrisome, although I'm unsure what variety of a 'strike' they could take, actually. (Maybe refuse to j...

5. Ageing Disgracefully
Ageing Disgracefully
Meth-who-sela? This is the name of the Grandfather of Noah, the man in the Hebrew Bible, reputed to have been 969 years 'old' at his death. Much speculation and few satisfactory conclusions have been found to explain this phenomenon - so we won't go there either. The thing we can all agree upon...

6. Please... 'Really' Listen
Please... 'Really' Listen
"A trouble shared is a trouble halved," you say. "Just talk to me. I can help you," you say. And you mean it. You sincerely mean it. Here is a deeply troubled person. Maybe a relative, maybe a friend, maybe an acquaintance who can find solace nowhere else - except through sharing it with one ...

7. Heroes? They Didn't Think So.
Heroes?  They Didn't Think So.
The date was 9th April, 1940, when a quite ordinary couple - Harry and Wanda, woke up to find themselves in the middle of a war-zone. The place was Copenhagen, Denmark. Overnight a powerful section of the German Army had parachuted in and stealthily taken over the Danish homeland, in its entirety...

8. Henry's Mother - Louisa Lawson
Henry's Mother - Louisa Lawson
...Mothers, that is. This is the story of one particularly special mother - a Woman of Words of the 1800's - Louisa Albury Lawson. Louisa was not the first Australian women's periodical publisher, but her indomitable spirit and fiery honesty, saw her overcome formidable odds to achieve her dream ...

9. Make Afghans...Not War!
Make Afghans...Not War!
And these crochet and knit creations are my version of patchwork creations. The first of my patchworking problems is that I just cannot visualise patterns or even several materials together. And then I can't imagine a pattern with these several materials. And then I hate measuring all the mise...

10. Treasured Christmas Memories
Treasured Christmas Memories
Christmas looked like this! Well, in 1948 it was a black and white happening . . . but only on film. How about this Father Christmas? NOT one of the best of the friends and helpers of the 'real' Father Christmas I've ever seen, but obviously the man for the job on that particular day on that part...

11. Henry Lawson - Bush Bard Extraordinaire
Henry Lawson - Bush Bard Extraordinaire
Few would dispute the power and beauty of the writings of Henry Lawson - with one notable exception - his arch-rival - Andrew Barton 'Banjo' Paterson - the other literary 'giant' of Lawson's famous 'time in the sun'. Whether they agreed or not, both would become the most famous poets in the histo...

12. Angels Come...In All Sizes and Guises
Angels Come...In All Sizes and Guises
This one has come with somewhat wobbly wings - and the halo is a little 'off-beam' - and her hair is a bit...well-ll-ll - what can I say? And are they flowers or pom-poms on her toes? Who knows? But her smile is wide and welcoming - and her nose is small but hearty. And best of all - her HEART...

13. A Little-known Aussie, Ted Bear, Esq.
A Little-known Aussie, Ted Bear, Esq.
No, actually he's not renowned in many circles - he has little claim to fame in the public arena. In reality, (I must painfully admit) he has been an almost unknown, somewhat shadowy figure in the technological world (until now). Here is a photo of him in his favourite chair, sharing and spinnin...

14. A Little Poetic Licence and Larceny
A Little Poetic Licence and Larceny
Most times we go to the Kitchen to cook. Sometimes the mind can drift away whilst the hands are busy with the mundane preparation of yet another soup, yet another curry - or cake, or tray of Anzac biscuits to make. Some of us really DO love cooking - BUT - the imagination is a fickle thing with ...

15. 'Hanging Out' with My Wall Hangings
'Hanging Out' with My Wall Hangings
Raggedy Ann and Andy insisted on being first...what can I say? (I'm basically a 'pushover' for kids...and words...I really had little choice)...and they are extremely cute in their personal wall-hanging. Since our grand-daughter was very small, she has loved chanting its message - 'ABC...1.2.3.....

16. Ooroo the Kangaroo
Ooroo the Kangaroo
On first sight, Ooroo was a less than 'awe-inspiring' specimen of a kangaroo. I felt certain we would part company in short order - hence his name, Ooroo (which means 'Goodbye' in Australia). He was a sparsely furred and terribly stressed joey (the name for a baby kangaroo). His tiny, wizened fac...

17. The Wordsmith who Loved Horses
The Wordsmith who Loved Horses
He was one of Australia's best-loved 'sons'...the only Australian poet to have a Tablet and a Bust placed in the Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey, London. As far from 'Average' as you could imagine, especially if you read his poetry, and consider his passion for all things Australian. Followin...

18. My Life in 'Interesting' Times
My Life in 'Interesting' Times
When I was born, many people assumed I was an accident. Over the years, many more have come to the same conclusion, but for different reasons. The initial judgement was made because my siblings were all a decade and more older than me. Myself, I believe my parents were just saving up for a rainy ...

19. A Gentle Gypsy Stole my Heart
A Gentle Gypsy Stole my Heart
My hands were the first and last Gypsy knew. Holding her with the greatest love - at her birth - and at her death, 17 years later. The first time I saw her, she was still in her umbilical sac. I had to clear her mouth and tickle her nose with a dry stalk of grass to make her sneeze and take her ...

20. Helmets & Hats - and Snuggly Scarves
Helmets & Hats - and Snuggly Scarves
If you're looking for warmth, softness, and prettiness - here is something special. Like all of my creations it is unique - a 'one-off' - never to be repeated exactly the same. As the designer and creator, I can certainly guarantee these claims. This aviator helmet and scarf were handknitted us...

21. Calendar Recyclers of the World Unite!
Calendar Recyclers of the World Unite!
There are clever, creative people out there who are performing visionary-type recycling miracles daily - EVEN with used calendars. They are making transformations like calendar envelopes; new calendars from old; templates, coasters. Their inventiveness knows no boundaries, no limitations, it wo...

22. Candy - A Honey of a Dog
Candy - A Honey of a Dog
Many life happenings conspired to create the 10 year gap from when my sweet Kim died until I was able to get a puppy again. First Mum and Dad and myself moved to a new home, and they didn't want another dog. Then I married, and our early years were in rental properties in two Australian States th...

Beauty and the Bead...Knitting, Actually.
...and so my 'Beaded Knitting' AND 'Bead Knitting' journey began - and hasn't stopped...yet! Uh-oh, here's the first problem - what is the difference between bead and beaded knitting, I hear you ask? Well-ll perhaps it will help to tell you that the pictured Aqua creation is bead knitting, or kni...

24. It's Eternal...It's Infinite...It's a Scarf!
It's Eternal...It's Infinite...It's a Scarf!
"Around and around and around she goes... And where she stops - nobody knows!" ...or so the Showmen have cried out from time immemorial, as they spun the countless versions of the 'Wheel of Fortune' - wheels for raffles and wheels for roulette, and serious gambling. But this time, the adage appl...

25. Kangaroo R&R - Rescue and Rebirth
Kangaroo R&R - Rescue and Rebirth
The last of the ten kangaroos they shot that night was a gentle grey doe, her soft stricken eyes staring in confusion and terror at the alien spotlight. The perfect target. After she had fallen, we could all see movement still continuing in her pouch. I felt overwhelming sickness as one of the m...

26. It's Great Mate ... The Aussie Beer Shed
It's Great Mate ... The Aussie Beer Shed
'Aussie Beers are the Best'. Well-ll-ll, who am I to argue? I certainly wouldn't pick a fight with someone her size. Some larrikin must have been as game as Ned Kelly to give this upstanding Lady an armful of tinnies to hold - AND wrap a stubby holder around her arm. This is just one of the cr...

27. Taffy Was An Aussie
Taffy Was An Aussie
But the famed 'Taffy' was a Welshman - and the old-time rhyme goes a bit like this - 'Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a thief, Taffy came to my house and stole a leg of beef! I went to Taffy's house, But Taffy wasn't home.... All that was left was a large beef bone!' Ahh-hh-hh, what can I say.....

28. Farmers? Are You Serious?
Farmers?  Are You Serious?
At last we had really done it! Moved out of the rat-race, out of the smog. No more rush hours and never-ending traffic jams. No more 'weekends' (as we had known them), nor public holidays, nor that phenomenon known variously as 'RDO's' or 'flex-off' days. (To be honest - we go back SO far, these ...

29. My Father's Day is Every Day...In My Heart
It was St. Patrick's Day once again, and all around the world there was the 'wearing of the Green', and just a few celebrations, and in some places, even Green Beer was served. The average U.S. workingman was earning less than $15 per week, working from 54 to 60 hours, In 1910, Harry Houdini, t...

30. The Primary Pooch
The Primary Pooch
Kim was an Airedale, crossed with something (maybe several 'somethings') and so his features were softer than the usual sharp angles of his breed.What I do know for sure, was that he was the first in a line of great and treasured canine characters that have shared my life. There are some people ...

31. Ponchos with Panache and Stunning Shawls
As my craft journey continued, and staying true to my wish to create unique and individual designs, I began my love affair with shawls and ponchos. I experimented with all manner of sizes and shapes of shawls, and in the process discovered many and varied ways they can be worn. I really like this...

32. The Farmer Needs A Wife...AND The Law of Attraction
...A Partner, A Dog's-body, A 24/7 Worker, etc., etc. But wait...there's SO much more! Some years ago an exceptionally experienced Farmer's wife/Author wrote a Job Specification for exactly what is required of such a Superwoman. And it should be noted...only the most strong-hearted (and muscled)...

33. Three Little Lambs Were Lost One Day
Babes in the Bush. Off to have the adventure of their short little lives - the last they would ever have. Their tragic journey began on 30th June 1867 and ended on an unknown date, some 13 kms (or nearly 8 miles) away. They became lost, and their tiny bodies would not be found until almost thre...
