My blog is about cooking, travelling, reading and other fun adventures I now undertake in my retirement. After many years in the Public Service, I am now ever so happily retired and embarking on many adventures along the way. I am super-busy and raring to go! I am still happily married after way too many years to count, and am really enjoying the next chapter in my life. I live in sunny Brisbane Australia, along with my husband Mr Pickings and lots of wild birds that come for regular handouts.
