Interesting Reading - Pay it Forward

I always find the glass half full, so that will explain this paragraph of Pay It Forward which is something I enjoyed reading about and taking part in. I first heard about it HERE and Suspended Coffees and their facebook page. I've always thought of why it isnt in Australia and how I can be a part of this movement.

Today i found this floating on my Facebook wall, 542 Eatery Hamilton ON Canada.
A local one to me that we can participate in as well Brisbane Period Project

I have also found that when I am feeling down I gravitate towards helping someone else or phoning someone I know to see how they are doing, it usually makes me feel so much happy and no longer down in the dumps. I saw this online as well, we actually have an organisation R U Okay and on Sep 8th it is called R U OKAY Day where you call someone up to see if they okay. I called 2 people up that day but unfortunately they weren't home. One did respond via email 3 weeks later and I finally was able to phone the other one this week. Better late than never.

I  love this obituary from Emily Phillips

10 places to visit before they're lost to climate change

I've always wondered what will happen in the future generations when letter writing goes out of style and post offices are no longer needed. World Post Day October 9th has a competition to write to ones 45 year old self for the younger generation. Well I've passed that age so I'll write about my 45 year old self and share it one day if I can remember what I did a decade ago lol.

My dream is to live on the road and visit the whole of Australia, here is an article about Aussie couples living on the road. Rebelonarainbow  Johnny & Jess dustybootsVanlife,


50 most beautiful places in the world, such exquisite places. Without the internet I would never have known the wonders of the world.

Cappadocia, Turkey 

Cappadocia, an area in Turkey where entire cities have been carved into rock, is pretty incredible on its own. But whenever hot-air balloons pepper the sky, its beauty level simply skyrockets.


Salar de Uyuni: Daniel Campos, Bolivia

The reflective surface of the world's largest salt mine is like something from the imagination of Salvador Dali—although we're happy it actually exists in real life.

Mù Cang Chải: Vietnam

Mù Cang Chải manages to be one of the most breathtaking spots in Vietnam, with terraced rice fields and mountainous landscapes.

Benagil Sea Cave: Algarve, Portugal

The southern coast of Portugal is lined with exquisite beaches and caves, including the famous Benagil Sea Cave (skylight included).

Snæfellsjökull: Iceland

Iceland's Snæfellsjökull glacier, complete with ice caves and craters, has appeared in Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth and the film Batman Begins.

Palawan Island: The Philippines

With its limestone cliffs and pristine lagoons, it's easy to see why Palawan was votedthe best island in the world by our readers.

Ashikaga Flower Park: Ashikaga, Japan

Ashikaga's wisteria trees bloom brilliantly for a few weeks every spring, turning the park into a vision of pastel pinks and purples.

Brecon Beacons National Park: Wales

Brecon Beacons offers access to rolling hills, Medieval castles, and romantic waterfalls. Plus it's arguably the best place to stargaze in the UK.

Namib Desert: Namibia

Red sand dunes and skeletal trees make Namibia the closest thing we have to Mars on Earth. The Namib Desert was also the filming location for Mad Max: Fury Road.

Milford Sound: New Zealand
New Zealand is no stranger to breathtaking landscapes. Case in point: Milford Sound, a mountainous fjord where you can live out all of your Lord of the Rings fantasies.

Kolukkumalai Tea Estate: Munnar, India

Situated more than 8,000 feet above sea level, Kolukkumalai is the highest tea estate in the world—and easily the most beautiful.

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque: Abu Dhabi, UAE

Although the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque has only been around for less than a decade, its regal architecture has already made it the crown jewel of Abu Dhabi—and one of the largest mosques in the world.

Bryce Canyon: Bryce, Utah

Bryce Canyon's layered red and orange rock pillars, known as hoodoos, make it a can't-miss destination for campers and shutterbugs alike.

Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

You might know them better as the Cliffs of Insanity from The Princess Bride, but this seaside wonder is actually located just south of Galway. Inconceivable!

You get the idea!! Go and check out the glorious photos yourself!!

World Post Day


Today is World Post Day

Last year Australia Post put out those wonderful solar system stamps that I made envelopes for that were very popular amongst my recipients

National Awareness Days


There is also a Letter Writing Competition for young people, I wonder what generation will do this! It will be sad to see letter writing completely disappear to texting and emails.

So I was surprised to find how young these winners were and how articulate their
writing was and very interesting. I cant wait to read the 2016 winning letters

I've always wondered what will happen in the future generations when letter writing goes out of style and post offices are no longer needed. World Post Day October 9th has a competition to write to ones 45 year old self for the younger generation. Well I've passed that age so I'll write about my 45 year old self and share it one day if I can remember what I did a decade ago lol.

WOYWW 383


Very busy desk, Wedding invitations finally finished which is the top left hand corner or in the photo below, boxed and ready to go. Decorating envelopes ready for Christmas mail. Some of you shamed me into starting something for Christmas hahahaha.


Another week has gone, my mobile phone is almost dying so I get to upgrade to the IPHONE 7 with all the bells and whistles much to hubby's frustration because he is the gadget man and would love the newest technology. I did offer for him to have my Iphone 7 and I'd take his Iphone 6Splus.

I had to raid the piggy bank to pay for this phone...hahahaha....yes the piggy bank had $1000 in it. It is the tin I have mangled in the photo that looks like a $50 note.

Joining up with Julia's Stamping Ground for more desk peeks.
