Ahab and the whale become good friends

      Little did I realise that in 2011, when I tentatively purchased my first Kindle, that it would change the way I read and consume books. My hoarding tendencies and love of books meant that I adored buying books in hardcopy. Whether it was to read once or many times, I had a […]

catch up day

Today was a catch up day. I folded three weeks worth of clean washing. I now have clothes in the cupboard again. This means that I don’t have to rat through piles of laundry every morning looking for something to wear. I also caught up on getting food into the house. Yes, I bought groceries. […]

Have piano seat will travel

Posted by Wendy Davis on June 22, 2014 and filed under blogjuneculturefilmsmusicUncategorized

Last night I decided to take my own adjustable piano stool to play at our choir concert. At our rehearsal on Thursday evening the seat with the piano in the hall annoyed me no end. It was too low and not adjustable. As a pianist it is rare that you ever perform on the instrument […]

caught up in a swirl of sound

Since I moved back to Bundaberg I’ve been involved with the Bundaberg Orpheus Singers. I was excited to join a choral group singing in 4 part harmony. Believe it or not – not all regional centres have adult singing groups. I was happy to sing with the altos for the first few years. I liked […]

On not breaking the chain

Posted by Wendy Davis on June 20, 2014 and filed under bloggingblogjunelife

For anyone who follows me on instagram and twitter you will know I am doing the fmsphotoaday challenge. I was inspired by @jobeaz’s daily photos last year and decided to give it go myself for 2014. I am determined not to miss a day and I don’t think I have so far. I’m never going […]

the saddest thing today

Posted by Wendy Davis on June 19, 2014 and filed under blogjuneletterslife

I spent another morning at the legal firm this morning learning about records management in the safe custody section. People put lots of different things in safe custody. The saddest thing today was a handwritten last will and testament and suicide note that we had to make a record.  Now it’s in a packet with […]

am I a chick lit chick?

This post is about books and reading and stuff so I must be a librarian in training after all? Is that how it works? (Jokes. Never a good start to a post.) At the recommendation of @rachwray I’ve been reading some Freya North. I didn’t really know where to start so I was guided by […]

And that is life

Three great things happened today. 1. I went to the supermarket. I never have a huge amount of stuff but I’ve always avoided the self serve checkout machines. I tried them a few times when they first appeared but I found them stressful. They beeped when I didn’t remove my bagged items in a timely […]

a slight chill in the air

Exciting times in the ‘berg today as there is a slight chill in the air. That’s right people. Winter is here. I just checked the weather forecast and this is what it looks like. Yes that’s correct. Your eyes do not deceive you. We have made it past midday without reaching 20 degrees. But look […]
