An afternoon of Grace & Style

I grew up with a very practical Mum – loving, caring, hardworking, realistic, no frills. I don’t really remember her as someone who would wear a lot of make-up or jewellery. She was a school cleaner for most of my childhood so she spent most of the time in ‘serviceable’ (her words) clothes.

My first trip to Lamington National Park was a nice adventure and I racked up a bit of a walking milestone – a walk over 15k.

A trip to Adelaide and a walk along the River Torrens

I’ve just returned from a quick trip to Adelaide in South Australia. My first time to Adelaide and my first trip ever to SA. The taxi driver I spoke to was stunned that I’d never been to Adelaide before. “It must not be a good place” if I’d never been before? I tried to explain to him that Australia is very large and it’s common that people do not get to every state in their lifetimes.
