A few of my favorite things – The local library


Another of my favorite places is my local library. No matter what my first love will always be books and reading. I love that I can escape into a world so far from my own. My daughter was even named after my favorite book.

I love the diversity. Any age, sex, religion, culture can enjoy being under the same roof with a common bond of books.


A few of my favorite things – The Kitchen Table Cafe

Over the next little while, I want to share some of my favorite places and favorite things in my little town. Here goes

Sitting in my favorite cafe. “the kitchen table cafe”.


I don’t know where to start. It’s an amazing place. Spectacular, coffee and food. It’s a photography/art gallery/cafe in one. The owners Kath and Shayne are incredible, so very welcoming and friendly. You never know what you’re going to get when you walk it. It really is a place for anyone and everyone


From homeless, to business men and women. Photographers, artists, breast feeding mums. The have a piano set up in the corner, Mixed matched tables and chairs. Couches, books inspiration. They have different exhibitions from new talent, to experienced artists and photographers.


. It’s one place that I just feel at home. Right now I’m writing this one my laptop, enjoying my coffee, surrounded with comfort of music and it feels like home. From free cooking classes and Wednesday morning knitting group. It’s just magical feel.


I need your ideas please – URGENT :)

As per the title I really need some help and ideas. In a few days I meet with my support worker and therapist for a celebration coffee and catch up since I’m signed off mental health. They have been by my side in different roles for close to two years.

I want to get them both a small but thoughtful gift as a thank you for going above and beyond. Given their role in my life I know I have to be careful as I can only assume gifts maybe considered a no-no. But I’m doing it anyway lol. They both deserve been regonised. After all they helped save my life.

But that’s were your help comes in. I’m going to get a card printed with one of my photos and either a poem or something of that nature. But I’m unsure of the actual gift. I don’t want to just do chocolates or flowers etc. I need it to be something with meaning. Oh n I should mention I have a budget of $10 each.

So please darling wise followers please help out with ideas x

Oh crap its finally happened….

Oh crap its finally happened. Its something I was told would happen. I’ve … I’ve … Become one of those … God I don’t know If I can say it. Its taken me just over 30 years to become a …. Gr .. Gr .. Damn I’ve just got to say it. Here goes ‘I Kelzbelz have become a grown up’. Yip a real adult. Well in the financial sense. I pay my bills, not on time but early. The debt I’ve avoided for a few years a getting paid little by little. But still the will be paid off. Birthdays and Christmas are done. My kids and I can some times get little treats. And man it feels good 🙂
