365 Days – Round 2 by Samantha Goode! Day 4 –  Friday 27th March 2015

Beauty on a Friday.


Today, I had a glorious morning with a beautiful friend who travelled from Sydney to see me. This beautiful bunch of gorgeous smelling roses are from her. How lucky I am. 

I made some (freshly picked from the garden) lemongrass tea and we sipped that from china teacups before we headed to a beautiful local cafe that overlooks the beach. 

I had for breakfast, a beautiful granola and vanilla bean yoghurt dish with a fruit salad on the side. So refreshing! Not to mention the delicious much needed coffee I had with it. 

We then headed to the beach with my little one, who played in the water with his bucket and spade.  I also welcomed the opportunity to dive under a couple of waves. So invigorating! 

Perfect Friday! 


Hello everyone,

i have been missing for a while…needed a break! Since I was last on here, a lot of things have happened, so I thought I would you fill you in. As those of you who follwed me on my 365 project know, I had a miscarriage in 2012 and I lost my way for a little while, hence me stoping my posts on here.  I needed time out.

After an incredible, much needed holiday in Fiji, I was able to recharge my batteries and find myself again. On Chrsitmas Day 2012, my partner of 7 and a half years proposed to me, so I am now engaged! 

I am also very pleased to announce that I am expecting again! :-)

Oh and some more good news….I am going to have my first solo exhibition, which will be for 3 months in Sydney! 

I hope all of my followers are keeping well. I plan on adding some new photographs here shortly. X


Day 351 Wednesday 14th March 2012


Allow me to Introduce

Today, something rather exciting happened, I bought myself a scooter, to get me from a to b, to enable me to take more photographs, to give me independence.

I am incredibly happy.

I have called her Bella, as she is an Italian beauty.

Natures Offerings

With such a busy day and with even more rain, I am afraid this is the best photograph I could take for today. It’s an offering from one of our trees and they (the offerings) are at the moment, covering our driveway, which is driving my partner insane because as soon as he sweeps them up, they start falling again, so it’s a never ending job. it doesn’t help that cockatoos land in the tree, eat part of the seeds and then just drop them. I find it rather amusing, because, cooking/cleaning is a never ending job too….welcome to my world :)

2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Perfect Start to a New Week

I mentioned over the weekend, how we went to view a property – that we’ve had our eyes on…well….we’ve put an offer in! :) Scary bananas!! Fingers crossed they’re going to accept it and we don’t get guzumped.

It will mean saying farewell to living in Sydney, however, we’ll both still work in Sydney and will commute – about an hour every day – or just over that. At the moment, it takes me 2 hours to get home usually – commuting and that’s living in and working in Sydney, so it should be a really positive move for us and we will finally have somewhere here that we can call our own. I have to keep telling myself, that if it doesn’t happen, then it’s just not meant to be and that there is somewhere else better out there. Everything happens for a reason and all that jazz.

What a rollercoaster of a year this has been so far. I am so glad that I have been documenting it in this project – it’s a year of my life that I will never forget and I like to think that I have made some good friends via this blog – people who have decided to follow my journey – my photography.

This photo was taken this morning, again before I started my journey to work. It was the perfect start to the week. Last week was awful, in so many ways – I am determined to make this week a good one and I hope those who are reading this, will have a good week too.

Sunshine smiles :D

The Spice of Life

Chilli flakes, coriander seeds and paprika….exotic spices. Thought I’d try something different today, Note to self, next time I touch chilli flakes remember to wash fingers afterwards ;)
