Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory

We’ve almost been living in Wagga Wagga 12 months, and to our shame we’ve only now made it out to visit the Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory. Licorice making in progress I would make a safe bet that ‘the factory’ would easily be Junee’s number #1 tourist attraction. I don’t think the Correctional Centre really […]

Running

I’m running again, slowly but surely. And not exactly without limitations, but I’m getting there, ever so slowly. I reckon it will be well into spring before I am satisfactorily ‘fit’ again, as long as I stay injury-free. I had forgotten how awful the process of ‘getting fit’ is, and so I have a new […]

Hungry, thirsty and tired

Maisie has a few new favourite expressions that she has learnt to use for great impact. “I’m huuunnngrrry” It’s hard to refuse a toddler pleading for sustenance. Although she gives the game away when she continues to plead for food even though we offer her an assortment of options. It seems she’s not hungry so […]
