spring sunsets playlist


We’re three weeks into Spring and there have been some subtle sunsets and some rather spectacular sunsets

Here is my playlist for Spring 2016 which I like to listen to at the end of the day sitting on my balcony, sipping a coffee or a drink and of course watching colours in the sky change around sunset

Scroll down to see the colours of a gorgeous sunset from a couple of weeks ago

Also if you live in Perth, two of the artists on the playlist (Gwenno & Cate Le Bon)  will be playing at Mojos in Fremantle in early October






Anatomical illustrations – 15th century


I’ve been browsing the internet lately for information about joint replacements

Whilst browsing the net, I’ve come across a fair share of gory and bloody images (I still wish I hadn’t looked at the hashtag surgery on Instagram)

It was a pleasure to come across this series of anatomical illustrations from the mid 15th century that are both charming and beautiful in their simplicity

They are from a book ‘Pseudo-Galen, Anatomia, in English’ which is held by the Welcome Library. If you would like to look at the entire book, click here

The anatomical images below are from The Public Domain Review. Click here for more information about the illustrations

The gorgeous illuminated manuscripts from the book are sourced from the Welcome Library

do a little dance


Lately I’ve been lacking motivation and energy to do housework, uhh …blog posts and basically anything that needs to be done.

I love 70s/80s funk, soul and disco so I made up a playlist to get me up off the couch

I usually play it when I have to do some housework however most of the time I alternate between doing housework and having a dance (a great way to get some exercise) when it’s on

Put it on before you have to go out on a Friday or Saturday night and I’m sure it will put you in a great mood. Enjoy!
