’tis the silly season…


Most of my readers are running from snow – while we’ve been kicking up sand…

And this year my family and I decided to make this giant Santa-hat to drag around the countryside.

The Santa hat reminds me of a deserted hermit crab shell.

Why you many ask?


Summer is starting and schools are closing in Australia. And like last year, I’m stepping away from the keyboard to recharge my creative batteries and annoy my family for the entire summer. Can’t you just hear them groan?

Yes, it finally rained! Hats off for the rain dance, peoples.

I’d like to thank you all for the amazing encouragement and support you’ve shown me throughout the year. I sincerely wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic new year for 2017.

In case you miss me terribly (not) you might find me on Instagram, twitterfacebook should I get into WiFi range while on our road trip, dragging the Santa-hat, dodging long-awaited summer storms.

So, until next year, enjoy & be safe.

  1. Have a great break Mel! Love the hat 🙂 I’m already missing you terribly – but that’s more down to me just being really terrible at missing people. Looking forward to swapping stories, comments and general nonsense with you through 2017 and beyond – thanks for keeping me entertained on your blog 🙂

  3. It’s been a pleasure Mel – it works both ways. But please don’t let any rumours of “wisdom”start circulating – I have a reputation to uphold 🙂 Have a fantastic break – see you in 2017 🙂
