Full Moon energy....

The past few nights have seen the Moon at her most fullest......which means super high powered energy for all....and not much sleep for many of us hyper sensitive types.

I have painted the kitchen, changed knobs, and now am very happy with our re-vamped look...

have been busy doing that and also lot's of interesting readings for people....i love meeting so many new faces and connecting with them on a spiritual level is a blessing for which i am truly grateful.

My eldest daughter and her son came over yesterday and we went out for lunch which was lovely....Heath is such an old soul and amazes me each time i see him. He turns 3 this Sept although he acts 33!

Peaches has been with us for a week now and has decided that she is an eating machine! by this time next week she will probably be HUGE...haha bless her.

Wednesday love to you,

Sunday cruisy Sunday :)

Sunday's are so good........went out for brekkie this morning with David and my son Jake. After that we headed to Bunning's and bought some white paint, a paint brush, 19 silver knobs, a potted chrysanthemum and a baseball cap with a light built into it ( Jake needed one ;).

Am re-vamping the kitchen cupboards this week with fresh paint and new cupboard knobs...feeling creative and realise that after 5 months here I'm falling in love with this old house.

Sunday love to you,

ºㄥ◯∨モ º☆º ☽

i love the internet!!! seriously, i do.

i would marry it if i was a Mormon, but i am not a Mormon so i can't as i already have one husband that i love a lot and to have another husband would be greedy.

anyhoo, yeah, i loves the internet!....woke up ridiculously early (again) this morning, before the birds had even started their sing-a-thon. David made us green tea and we had a heart to heart about moving again in April..... we decided that we are staying here for another 6 mnths as we do love this old love nest of a home and it is 2 steps away from Oxford St ( Oxford street has over 30 restaurants, cinema, wine bar/pub, cafe's, park, river etc;) so it would be a little stupid of us to shift again to somewhere not as amazing. I think green tea helps clear away brain fog....or maybe dumbness as in our case

All hail the power of an early night and green tea!! :)

The one thing i miss not having in this house is kitchen bench space as we have hardly any work bench to chop and dice and make merry vegetarian food on.

So.....Mr. David the puter man went googling and found a kitchen island bench for $200 that is perfecto for us....not only that BUT the lassy that owns said bench is a couple of streets away from us!!!

hence my LOVE for the internet...(and David of course)


Spiritual stuff.....

Dear Universe,

Thanks for listening to me.....the people that you are sending my way for psychic readings are very interesting...the French lady was so beautiful both physically and energetically speaking. Thanks to my guides for all of your input too....muchly appreciated.

Peaches has fallen in love with my bed and only moves off for meals....bless her

What a wonderful day x

Poem by me for Peaches...

Peaches you are our new cat
My love for you could fill a hat
A hat so big it could hold the world
In a ball fast asleep you lay there curled...

look at you, all soft and cute
may i ask in your dreams do you play the flute?

now as you sleep, i feel i must hurry
as for dinner tonight i am making lentil curry

so into my kitchen i shall now sneak
leaving you here until i come back in and have a peak

to check that you are safe and happy
and if you were my baby you would wear a nappy!

Love Jane

Pussycat Pussycat la la laaaaaaaaaaaa!

I am up zingyily early with the birdies this fine excited about welcoming Peaches into my home tonight...she is going for an op today to be de-sexed as she is only a baby herself and was abandoned with a litter at only 18 months old. I had my first baby at age 19 (years, not months) so I appreciate the shock of being thrown into an adult world at a youthful age.

I have made her a snuggly bed (an old wicker toy basket draped with my picnic rug) in my favourite room of my house and am off out hunting today for cat stuff....bowls and food mainly, oh yeah and a litter tray thingy.

Everyone is snoring just's like a symphony of sleep.

Being me, i jump out of bed at ridiculous hours with my mind whirring and either cook, write or read. This blog thing is going to be fun. Now i can ramble on to you!

I hope your day is full of surprises...much happiness and LOVe x

Roast Pumpkin risotto....

I made roast pumpkin risotto for dinner tonight and it was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good! There were zero left overs as everyone (all 5 of us) ate the lot.

I don't make risotto's very often as there's a fair bit of measuring and ladelling out stock business that you must do or else it sucks.

Taking the time to do it right pays off as even the toasted pine nuts were done to perfection. Even the ridiculously cheap white wine i used was actually really nice ($1.85 a bottle from Dan Murphy's). I forced myself to try a glass of it after i had finished cooking....;)

I am a happy chef tonight....

new family member!!!

Meet 'Peaches'...she's coming to live in our love nest tomorrow night.....was due to be put down as she is only 1 and a half yrs old and was abandoned with her litter.....

her babies have all been found homes but she is in need of some super duper TLC and she will definitely get that from us.....

Cat energy! woo-hoo xxxxxxx

Satay tofu and vegetables (food fit for Angels)


1 cup pineapple juice
2 tbs soy sauce
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp honey (or agave nectar)
350g firm tofu, cut into (1cm) bite size pieces
1 tbs olive oil
½ cup crunchy peanut butter
1 small onion ( i add 1 tsp of chilli jam to mine as i love HOT satay)
1 cup vegetable stock
1 tsp ground cumin
½ cup soy milk
½ tsp mild curry powder
½ cup reserved marinade
1½ tbs lemon juice
1 carrot, peeled and sliced
1 red capsicum, roughly chopped
1 cup snow peas, trimmed
½ cup broccoli florets
Steamed rice, to serve


Combine pineapple juice, soy, garlic and honey in a shallow dish. Add tofu and marinate (30 minutes).

Heat half the oil in a frypan. Add tofu, reserving half a cup of the marinade, cook until golden brown on both sides. Set aside and cover to keep warm.

Whilst sauce is simmering, heat remaining oil in the frypan. Add carrot, capsicum, snow peas and broccoli, stir-fry (2-3 minutes) until tender.

Return tofu to the frypan add satay sauce, toss to combine and warm through. Serve immediately over steamed rice.



You know what...i used to think that i needed so many much stuff.....i always wanted more and more things and this constant wanting and wishing made for little actual happiness.

Now, when i think about those times it makes me smile. I have learned that it is not the things and stuff that we collect on our life's journey that makes us happy. It is disconnecting from the needs and wants and realising that what we have right here, right now is everything.

Knowing that we are loved and have adequate food and shelter, the basic needs of life....if we can meet these then we are truly blessed.

So many people on our planet have so little....why should we complain when the wine we ordered at dinner is not up to scratch or the new car is not the correct colour, when there are people without basic items in their lives...such as water and food.

Go hug a tree and re-connect with Nature and her bounty....turn off the tv and try to see that you do not 'need' the things that you are being told you do.

A kiss from your child, watching butterflies dance around in the Sunlight.....those things are priceless.


Tis day one in the land of my blog and i shall bloggeth about see lot's of things are happening to you, me and everyone right now. Stuff that we can ride on through, ride along with, or we can chose to ignore it and it will bowl us's powerful stuff...Universal ebbs and tides are taking us to places no man/woman/animal has never ventured before.

Kind of like Star Trek but with spirituality thrown in the mix.
