Another month has zoomed past us, and the footy season is now over!

The weather has suddenly got warmer and I am pleased to see a few plants that I thought were dead, awaken from their winter slumber!

Hay fever has arrived early, and has made me stock up on Telfast for when the sneezing and itchy eyes get too much…

And our suburb seems to be full of “For Sale” signs as the auction season begins in earnest…I am so glad we are now settled…I never want to go through trying to buy a house ever again!

Which means it’s time for a Monthly Rewind…here are some of the things I wrote about in September!


The month started with a bang as we went to the Queen and Adam Lambert concert at Rod Laver….it was brilliant from start to finish! And I was amazed to see my review sent all over the world…mostly through Twitter!
