The Zombie Apocalypse – Tree change or not?

This little rant started on a group page discussing why so many people talk about being desperate to go off grid, go country, go simpler in life…but when an offer is made to assist them, or possible places that are available are noted, suddenly they have a lot of reasons why they can’t.  It’s too […]

Green fingers

Some days are just too funny.   Yesterday was pretty sad for one reason, but also delightfully, embarrassingly, funny.   Around 2 am son arrived home with about 15 orphaned tomato plants, all about 2 1/2 feet high – the car was a sea of leafy greens waving around his head. There were capsicum and […]

Spring 2015…Unsprung in the Snowy Mountains. Ditto 2016

I joined in on the Spring is Here along with everyone else! A week of beeeea-ooo-t-i-ful days. I ordered a stack of seeds online.  I bought some potting mix to plant them in.  I ordered two round bales of silage hay to mulch the place into the next year. And then the Cold Snap.  Yes, […]

Lighting the house up…without emptying your pockets.

Wow! I’m so over the electricity bills. And yet we don’t have the money to move over entirely to solar panels. We’re in an area where the temperatures are high and dry in summer – mid to occasional high 30’s and dry as. In winter, though…..-10C is normal, with occasional -14C. Whilst solar companies sweep […]

What competing does for me?

I rather like to know that I’m up to standard at whatever I’m doing. I like to know that everyone is not kilometres ahead of me. Other than that, I’m just not a competitive person. I find competing with others all the time annoying. Depressing even. If I win hands down, then ok, I’m good […]

#Say with me: Hatred and Nastiness has no place here.

I’m saddened by the news this morning of two hostages dying when the seige was ended this morning.   We don’t know who they were, or anything about their families.  Nor should we. That part is none of our business.  Let their families grieve in peace.   The people who were involved for 16 hours […]

3 Drunks and a Bandicoot

People I know, are talking about products, anything with odd names.  And what they like or more, don’t like.   And someone said Wine with funny names, they don’t like that.  I have to disagree with that one.  I absolutely love wine with funny names. Even in my price range, or maybe especially in my […]

Stuck here, in Whoop Whoop

Yes, another Lovely Treechange post.   Or possibly not. Today I have the miseries.   Before you ask.  No, I do not have thoughts of self harm, or dark and gloomy thoughts of most sorts. I’m just bluddy over everything.  It’s all too hard.  It’s all too expensive.  It’s all too far away.  It’s all […]
