IGEC : Travel
Instagram isn't just a great place to get inspired for your next meal, craft project or photo walk - it's also a perfect cure (or trigger) for itchy feet. So many gorgeous photos of so many far flung destinations.  I'm constantly drooling over all kinds of ...

Two Weeks Away, One Cabin Bag : Summer in the City
A long time ago I shared some tips about packing , the most important being that you don't need to travel with as much stuff as you think you do . Trust me - there is absolutely nothing to love about hauling a large and unruly suitcase from place to place. ...

Death by Doxie : Porch Watch
Outside of eating, the hounds most favourite thing in the world is to sit on the front porch and watch the world go by*. Preferably in the sunshine. And don't they look just adorable doing it?  No really, it's been a pretty rotten week for the world so plea...

On A Year And A Bit of Saying Sure, Why Not?
When we first moved back to Australia eighteen or so months ago I was feeling a bit lost. It was partly the standard dislocation and general weirdness that is a normal part of the repatriation process. But is was also partly something more. Living in Seoul ...
When we first moved back to Australia eighteen or so months ago I was feeling a bit lost. It was partly the standard dislocation and general weirdness that is a normal part of the repatriation process. But is was also partly something more. Living in Seoul I legally wasn't allowed to work.

Done! : Jabulani Challenge
On the Saturday just gone I participated in the Jabulani Challenge by walking 22 kilometres through Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Part of me wants to say it doesn't really mean anything because the 'real' participants ran the whole course, or because the...

Part of me wants to say it doesn't really mean anything because the 'real' participants ran the whole course, or because the 'real' participants did 45 kilometres, ...

Jorpins365 : March Favourites
March. You started in Melbourne and finished in Hong Kong (hurrah!). You were a mixed bag of complete and utter exhaustion and really exciting fun times; lots of opportunities and things to say yes please! too (more on all that in another post, when I'm not...

Three Etsy Things : Clutches
I don't usually travel with a handbag - I prefer to take a backpack so I can carry my laptop, camera, chargers, hard drives and other fun stuff in there. But a backpack doesn't really cut it for a night on the town, so I always throw a clutch in my suitcase...

Jorpins 365 : April Favourites
What a blur April was! It went by so damn quickly for me, I felt like I barely got a grasp on it...was it the same for you? Lots of red last month; unusual for me. But I just can't resist that gorgeous wall ; it's just around the corner from us too. There w...

As much as I love the long sunny days of summer (and living in the sparkling harbour city of Sydney how could I not?), I do get a bit excited when the nights cool and the light softens. I adore autumn. Partly because of the gorgeously coloured leaves and that misty, filtered sunshine.

Death by Doxie : Ferdi's Birthday
It was Ferdi's birthday last month. He turned eight, which is younger than I thought he was so yay! We are may be crazy dog people but we don't go over the top for the dogs birthdays. There's no cake or party or singing. They do normally get a treat - a raw...

My...Morning Routine
The post is a bit tricky for me to write, because the honest truth is I don't have a morning routine. I, we, don't have a routine at all. There's no alarm set at the same time every morning, because every morning is different.  Some mornings we have a full ...
