It’s been raining in Sydney on and off all day today so I retreated inside to a job I have been procrastinating about, sorting through some old photographs. I thought sharing these blue skies could be an antidote to the bulging black clouds I can see threatening to spill any minute. After all, it’s almost … More Shaking it off with Vitamin D in Byron Bay
Often it’s easy to overlook what’s on your own doorstep. For me that’s the Blue Mountains. I have been trying to make more of an effort to explore there. One particular Friday morning I popped my gear and tent in the car and once the office day was done I headed for the hills. I … More Exploring on my doorstep
I have been to Byron Bay a number of times and each time I’m at the lighthouse and look across the ocean to see the peak of Mt Warning, I promise myself the next time I’m here I’ll hike up it. Well I learned from my past mistakes and this time organised myself to get … More Will procrastinate another day
In October there was a long weekend so a friend and I headed off to tackle a track in the Blue Mountains over 3 days /2 nights. Although it’s within 90 minutes of Sydney I don’t know the Blue Mountains very well. As is often the case…..what’s on your doorstep doesn’t always hold the same … More What goes down must come up
Hello, amn’t I a blast from the past? Hope you are well. Strange that it can be so easy to fall out of a good habit and almost impossible to get back into one. Over the year I have often thought about writing on this blog and sharing some my photos from my less frequent … More Where did 2015 go?
I learned something recently. I get distracted in company, so much so that I hardly take any photographs at all. I met up with some friends for a hike and I have no photographs to share with you of it. Seems I am far too used to hiking alone and will have to learn how … More Short and sweet
The other weekend I went for the hike. It was the first one in a long time and taking the stairs through the office on Monday morning was telling – my legs were stiff. All worth it though, great to be back in the bush. I headed along to the Royal National Park and hiked … More Back in the bush
Greetings from my kitchen table in Sydney, long time no talk. Hope you are all well. It’s been too long since I wrote anything on this blog so am feeling a little uncomfortable at the keyboard. In recent months I have swapped by blog for presentations and reports and road trips for a daily commute to … More Hello World…… it’s been a while!
It’s my last night on the road. Tomorrow I will arrive back in Sydney. Not altogether sure how I feel about that or what comes next for Niamh on Leave as I will be back at work within a week. Quite incredible really when I think about it. It might sound strange but I haven’t really been … More Last minute thoughts
