Hi! I’m Susan…

I live in an apartment in beautiful Perth, Western Australia, with my wonderful husband and mischievous puppy 🙂

I decided to start this blog as I’ve had an urge to write for a while – about ‘this and that’.

It’s a bit tricky to sum yourself up in a blurb, but my interests include (in no particular order):  family, friends, animals, travelling, reading, films, antiques, art, nature, music, simple living, bargain hunting in charity shops and garage sales, luxurious frugality, investment, spirituality and exploring where life takes me!

My main focus on the blog is on self nurture and giving myself a break.  Life is not a race or a competition, and being kind to ourselves is paramount in this crazy world.  If I can help anyone else feel calmed and soothed in this little corner of cyber-space, all the better.

I also like plants, but this (*above) is the extent of my balcony garden right now!

Please comment as I LOVE to hear from people all over the planet and to feel I’m not just talking to myself  🙂
