Day 3686 - One upon a time ...

The story of a queen and her new castle. 


Once upon a time the queen decided she needed a new castle. Not that there was anything wrong with her old castle. In fact it was one of the most prized castles in the land suburb street lot. She required the new castle because it was her dream to keep the royal family close without falling over their enormous shoes each time she walked from her throne the toilet to the parlour lounge room.

Day 3679 - Total Control

Who watched Australia's newest drama?


Photo borrowed from ABC iView
This year I was lucky to step out of my comfort zone and undertake some extras work in a locally filmed TV series.  Which proves you are never too old to try new things.  #fiftyistotallythenewthirty

Total Control, staring Deborah Mailman and Rachel Griffiths, is a political drama set in Canberra which gave T and I the opportunity to dip our toes in the television waters to become fuzzy blurs in the hallways of Parliament House.

Day 3672 - A Deep Fried Update

What's going on in the land of the Deep Fried?


It seems it's been a while since you've had a Deep Fried Update. While you know about the Deep Fried Festival of 50 adventures you're probably at a bit of a loss as to what has been happening in "the real world".  So here we go, a Deep Fried Update.

Day 3665 - The British Virgin Islands

Have you been to the Caribbean?


As you know I've been having a very big Festival of Fifty which took us to the Caribbean recently. I've promised to write about the British Virgin Islands and give it the attention it deserves.  As I sit here madly blogging on the morn of my 21st wedding anniversary with wringing wet hair and some peak hour traffic to tackle in the next half an hour, I'm still not sure I'm giving the BVI's the attention I had hoped, but at least I can give you a photo album of turquoise splender.

Day 3658 - What are you thoughts on Halloween in Australia?

What does Halloween mean to me?


Choosing pumpkins in Pennsylvania
To be honest, not a lot.  I can take it or leave it.

Day 3651 - The beauty of black and white photos

Let's go grey scale


My cousin challenged me to a black and white photo a day on Facebook.  To show elements of my daily life with the colour stripped away.

I have to be honest - I loved it.

Day 3644 - The Festival of Fifty Big Five Oh

What time is it? DISCO TIME! 


All you're getting from me today is a great big PARTY which relived my childhood and teen years in true disco fashion.

Let's just say the party was exactly as I'd hoped it would be. Colourful, loud and a total throwback to a life many decades ago so that I could fully celebrate and be proud of how far I have come in the last 50 years.

Day 3637 - Festival of Fifty - Universal Studios LA

Capturing the Youthfulness in FIFTY


If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that the Festival of Fifty has included a whole lot of travel that took us to Orlando, Miami, the British Virgin Islands, Pennsylvania, LA and home.

If you've followed me for a while you'll also recall that my word of the year is FIFTY which stands for 

F is for Fabulous 
I is for Inspired 
F is for Fitness
T is for Travel 
Y is for Youthfulness 

Today I take you on a photo tour of Universal Studios in Hollywood where the Y really got a good workout.

Day 3630 - Birthday Festival Postcard

Love and hugs from the British Virgin Islands


As I'm still travelling on the big Five Oh Birthday Festival Tour and want to do the BVI justice, I thought I'd just send you a quick postcard this week and leave the big BVI blog post until I have the time and space to write it properly.

So for the Lovin' Life Linky this week, given my birthday is tomorrow,  I simply give you ME owning my 50 year old self in a very scary and vulnerable way. Albeit with the turquoise beauty of the Caribbean waters in the background.  

I'm doing my best to own my 50 year old physical being which in no way lines up with the 35 year I feel like I am on the inside.  But, there you have it.  With one day to go it's time to accept that the years change us physically, The mindset however is a choice. The rest can be fixed with spanks, make-up, hair dye and chopping off the hail damaged legs by cropping your photos.

What are you lovin' about life this week?
