I don’t think that I have too many Australian readers on here, but for those who are and for those who are not. One of Australia’s most famous “cold cases” in Australia is the “Beaumont Children“. Breaking it down a little, at Glenelg Beach (which is a gorgeous beach) Australia Day in 1966, three siblings went missing Jane Nartare Beaumont (born 10 September 1956), Arnna Kathleen Beaumont (born 11 November 1958), and Grant Ellis Beaumont (born 12 July 1961).
Their bodies have never been found. It was probably “that” case that changed a lot of things in Australia. Adults felt less safe too let their children go anywhere by themselves (the Beaumont children had gone to the beach on their own). Over the years there have been leads and the case is continually brought up over and over again.
So once again it has made it into the spotlight again, but it seems like it could be something that actually opens the case wide open, if it can be verified….Watch this space for more…
So YAY to long weekends! Is there anything better than a long weekend? Unless of course you’re a casual worker like me, where you can be called in every day, so you never really relax. It’s hard to describe to people who have never been a casual worker before. I feel like I have to act like I am going to work the next day, even when I’m not scheduled, because I could still be called in. I do not want to be called into work and be all hung over, or something like that.
The reason for our pubic holidays is to celebrate Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth birthday. Since Australia is apart of the Commonwealth, we get a public holiday, It’s a little odd though. The Queens ACTUAL Birthday is April 21st, but her “official” birthday is always on a Saturday during June, generally the second weekend.
So why the second birthday? (Other than…How cool would that be?!)
Queen Elizabeth is not the first Royal Family member to have a second birthday. The tradition was believed to have started with the Reign of King George II in 1748. The answer really is quiet simple and you can see when you see the reason why it started to become a tradition. George II was born in October but the annual summer military cavalcade became a celebration of the king as well as the armed forces.
In a world of everyone has a opinion and for some reasons more want to talk about their bad opinions on something. It was nice to see an article that just talked about the album and not just what they thought. How the music was inspired and what brought about Sgt Pepper. After all, music means different things to different people. This was definitely one of the definite Beatles albums.
*At the time of this post the Safari will have started…They will have the Fireside Chat at the end of the drive…Which will be at the end of the drive, roughly 2 hours and 45 minutes from now*
If you a regular reader of mine, you may have heard that I am addicted to a live stream feed called “Safari Live” Located at Djuma Game Reserve and Arathusa Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sand Wildtuin. You can watch a live feed of a safari, right from the comfort of your home…TWICE A DAY!
The Queen of all this dominion is the one and only Queen Karula! We have not been able to find her for the past two months, and although she is 13 years old, we still hope every day, but every day a little more hope dwindles. At 13 years old she is probably the most successful Leopardess in the area to have ever existed, successfully raising 10 cubs to full adulthood. The death of one of her last litters was not even her fault…Stupid humans.
As mentioned above she has been missing for roughly about two months and we are not sure what has happened to her. We keep hoping that she is off denning somewhere, but with two young Leopards already to take care of, it seems unlikely. There are variety of things that might have happened to her. From Lions, Hyenas other Leopards, even snake bites.
We ask you to join us on this special safari live edition and to stick with us as we celebrate the Queen of Djuma with a special fireside chat after the drive ❤ (Drives are usually about 3 hours long, with the last 15 minutes for the Fireside Chat).

Also, until Friday please head to TeeSpring and buy this gorgeous Karula, Queen of Djuma top and help Wild Earth!
I’ve been keeping an eye on this post all week, in case things change a lot. Over the past weekend I realised that I know have 500 “followers” and I am stunned! Hence why I’ve been keeping an eye on this post and see if people dropped off…Haha
It is amazing to me that I honestly even have 1 follower, let alone 500…It’s amazing and it literally could not happen without every single one of you. I mean quite literally, it’s thanks to every single one of you. I don’t actually like calling you all “followers”, I personally prefer to call you readers. Followers seems very much like I’m a Goddess or something. Which I don’t mind thinking to stroke my own ego, but this is definitely not what people who read any post on WordPress are, we are readers.
I would like to take this moment to thank each and every single one of you for helping me get there. For those who don’t know when I started this, I started it as a school project and it’s just developed from them. It’s changed over the last couple of years and I’ve Incorporated more and more into the Blog, I’ve got my Twitter account connected.
Too be completely honest, I think I wouldn’t even do the writing I do now if I hadn’t have kept this up. Having the “responsibility” of a Blog means that I’m always thinking, always thinking of topics to talk/write about. It helps me to keep motivated, and that wouldn’t also happen if I didn’t have readers who were reading.
So yes this a standard post that a lot of people will posting about today.
I just wanted to say that I hope all the Mothers have a great time today. By all the Mothers I mean ALL the Mothers. The Mothers, The Grand Mothers, the Aunts, the Step Mama’s, the adoptive Mama, the furbaby Mama’s, the Fosters Mums and of course all of the Mums who lost their bubbas ❤
The thing that I LOVE about the women in my family is the strength that the women in my family have. My Mum and my grandmother are probably the two people I respect and admire the most in the world. They were both the first women I knew that had left their husbands, while still loving them, but knowing it wasn’t working anymore. My Gran is so strong in her beliefs of new age which has come from her family and when we looked back at our family history, it is amazing to see the strong women I’ve had in my family. My Great Grand-Mother lost part of her leg due to polio, but it never stopped her. I actually used her walking stick a year or so ago when I developed sciatica and could barely walk.
This is for all my drawing/artist/creative type readers/Home Business followers…At the moment I have two casual jobs and while I enjoy both of them I am just not making enough money. I’m making enough to “survive” and luckily my partner and my mum charge me rent/bills on a percentage of what I make, rather than a set amount.
As I mentioned before I really do enjoy where I’m working at both places, I am really lucky that all my co-workers are lovely people and even with that one expected customer that’s always causing trouble. The work is good too, not to difficult that I just can’t do it, but keeps me busy and my mind off other things. Some weeks though I just don’t get the shifts, which when you’re a casual means, you get paid…well…nothing.
So this is where all my drawing/artist/creative type readers/Home Business followers come into play. I want to do something from home where I can make money as well. I love doing little crafty things and I would love to make a little business of bits and bobs. However, I have no idea where to start. So I was hoping that someone could give me ideas of any web pages or any sites that are good for people who want to get started, what sites are good to sell on, any legal information I may need. I was thinking of making things like:
Themed candles as well as just random scented
Handmade cards for all occasions
I am writing a couple of stories and am even writing what I call “script ideas” for a tv show for a role playing game that I used to play and I would love to be able to draw. I am a very visual person, but I am honestly also too lazy to learn how to draw properly. I can start and try, but I’d probably never get to the point where I could sell the art. The writing is mainly for myself and I’m not sure that I have to confidence to try and sell the ideas to someone either…It makes me feel kind of sad too at the same time as well. Who doesn’t want to be the next J.K. Rowling?
