#1 A New Year

Just for fun 🙂 This is a personal blog where I hope to write about various things that interest me throughout the year. I have no specific content plans, I just want to see what unfolds as the days go by. Carnet, is French for notebook. 365 is the number of days in the year…

2022 Week 10 Peace please…

University has well and truly begun and that is keeping me busier than usual. I’ve almost finished my first assignment and the online lectures and tutorials are fun and interesting. My family is well and happy and I’m grateful for that. I think about the people of Ukraine every day and also of the Russian…

2022 Week 9 New Reality?

Where I live is now seeing more than 2000 cases of CoVid19 a day. This is a stark contrast to the numbers we have had over the past two years. So it’s very different. Then there is the invasion of Ukraine. I don’t understand it. My heart breaks for the Ukrainian people and for their…

2022 Week 8 ?

I don’t know what to say. I can’t really believe what I am seeing. Thursday was a sad day for the world. I wish all people peace. xo

2022 Week 7 Noise & Peace

Tomorrow is Day One of University for me. I’m fully prepared and have everything ready. I’m an online part-time student so delivery of the course is quite flexible. I attended Orientation Week events in the past week and met other students and lecturers. It was a great experience and I’m glad I attended. I’m still…

2022 Week 6 O Week!

It’s almost Orientation Week for university and I am pretty excited. I’m going to two events. One is a general event and one is specific to my course. I’m looking forward to meeting some of the students and I will be picking up my student card too. I ordered my books a few weeks ago…

2022 Week 5 What is even going on?

A more appropriate question to be might be what isn’t going on? In my local area of Perth, Western Australia we are actually experiencing seeing a rising number of COVID19 cases for the first time during the pandemic. Well, except for at the very beginning in 2020. We are highly vaccinated and I guess as…

2022 Week 4 Half a century

This week I celebrated my 50th birthday. I spent the day with my family and a group of us went on an Op shopping spree to four Op shops in one area. I found one great book and four lovely tops so it was a fruitful trip. There was a bushfire very close by and…

2022 Week 3 Keep Calm

2022 has started out as a ‘made you look!’ kind of year already. What with the Omicron variant, the volcanic eruption and tsunami in Tonga and also the situation with Russia and the Ukraine, hopefully diplomacy will ensue. I forgot the flooding in the Eastern states of Australia. There are some food shortages due to…

2022 Week 2 Diary & Projects

I’m having fun using my new diary which is great. However, I feel compelled to say that it doesn’t feel like a new year to me, not yet anyway. 2021 didn’t feel like a new year either. It’s like 2020 never actually ended. Things feel quite strange at the moment. Different parts of Australia are…

2022 Week 1 Where to begin?

I’m beginning right here. It’s the first Sunday of the New Year. This blog will continue to be various ramblings of whatever for the next year, on a weekly basis. I’m starting university in February so that might feature and who knows what else 🙂 Currently in Australia we are experiencing the reality of the…
