New year. New format. New me???? (Well maybe not new me)

I am loving having a cable internet connection, it is SO fast.

It is hot outside, so what better thing to do than explore the WordPress options. Have you had a browse through them lately? The number of theme options is mind-boggling. I am a Pisces and one of their characteristics is indecision, procrastination, inability to make up my mind…

 I have travelled and been blogging for over 3 years now and thought it was time for a change, a new look, a new direction. What better time to start than at the beginning of a new year. Well over an hour later this is what I decided on.

For the next 3-4 months I will be at home. It is too hot for me to travel and stay in Matilda. That will not stop me exploring, as this area of Australia is a tourist hot-spot. So I will venture out, camera in hand, and show you some of the beauty and interesting things in the South-east corner of Queensland.

The new header is the beach I call home, Burleigh Beach on the Goldcoast. In the distance is Burleigh Heads National Park.

In the coming days I will take you for a walk around this cool, shady and historical bush area in the very centre of Burleigh.

    • Hi good to hear from you. The cable connection is just fantastic. We are with Telstra because they are the only ones that operate the cable link.

    • So many to chose from, very hard to make a decision. This is the same theme as my other blog but I “tweaked” it. May go and play with the memories blog next….

  4. Love the new look. I’m a Taurus so I’m too stubborn to change the look on my blog (and lazy). Enjoy your time at home.

  10. you two gave me a nice chuckle tonight; it’s 11:30, and I’ve been painting and am about to go to sleep. i’ve been reading about the high temperatures over there, and the fires (?)…

    I envy your fast connection, though I know that you’ve paid your dues and have earned that luxury; therefore you cherish it as well!

    i look forward to having you as a tour guide.

    • Thanks Lisa, I love getting your comments. Do you take your computer to bed with you? How are you getting on with your internet connection at the moment? I notice when there is a gap in your posts and think “Oh the internet is playing up over there!!!”

      • hey
        si, the internet connection is frustrating, but i’ve been dealing with that for a dozen years, so most of the time i adaptp. if i upload images, i select the task and the upload begins. then i walk away and cook lunch or something!

        this morning i tried watching a short video clip of a guy who is in rehabilitation from a broken spine. amazing story.. it took about two hours to load the short video and finally play it. it was worth it.

        late at night the connection is faster. yesterday i had painted most of the day but stopped to play catchup on wordpress. thanks so much! z

        • Before the cable connection I also found late at night or early morning to be the best times for getting the connection. I used to get frustrated visiting the blogs I follow as they took so long to load then would drop out….
          You are so patient and go with the flow

  11. Your new header shows my favourite beach.
    I am also a Pisces but do not have problems,
    like indecision or procrastination,
    may be because I do not believe in astrology.
