Whilst out for a walk on a new beach recently, we came across these wooden stumps jutting out of the water. I love the texture, the shadows, the reflections and of course another beautiful warm sunny day in Tassie.
The image of Queen Elizabeth II is prolific, present in large numbers, in our everyday lives, on our coins and stamps.
As the Queen hosts the Commonwealth Summit in London this week, we appreciate her influence on a global scale. “Fifty three countries are members of the Commonwealth, home to 2.4 billion people. Our countries span Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe and the Pacific and are diverse – they are amongst the world’s largest, smallest, richest and poorest countries.”
Happy birthday Ma’am.
God bless the Queen.
I’m a week into a new job, a temporary position for a few months, doing Accounts Payable at a school. I have lots of questions, about the system, their procedure. New names and faces to remember, a large school campus to navigate.
It’s a long time since I’ve put myself under this much pressure, pushed myself this much out of my comfort zone. But it is getting easier each day. I have revisited a couple of text books from my studies last year, which help. Everyone is very friendly and supportive.
I’m sure I’ll soon get on top of the workload and it will feel less hectic. In the meantime, roll on the weekend!
There are a couple of local cafes that use unmatched cups and saucers. What a lovely way to repurpose.
Rather than “waking from sleep or renewal” as depicted by springtime, I am choosing the definition, “moment of awareness”.
Here in Tasmania, we share our beautiful island with lots of wildlife. This tag, on a local sculpture, reminds everyone to be aware of their driving speed. Slow down. Tasmania has the highest level of road kill in the world.
This is the Convict Brick Trail in Campbell Town, Tasmania. The bricks are dedicated to some of the convicts who were transported to Australia from 1788, for almost one hundred years.
The trail was a privately organised project, with bricks purchased and details provided by individuals or descendants of the convicts identified on the brick.
Each brick states the name and age of the person, the ship they arrived on, their crime and sentence. Also, some other piece of information, perhaps where they were from, who they married, where they died, their achievements (or otherwise) in their new land.
Even James Bond gets a mention!?!
