Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Celebrating life - and shaping it with Bumpy the Wombat

IN my last blog I talked about lives, now lost, that mattered to me. So today it is fitting to celebrate life once more and what better way to do this then by going to a seven year old's birthday party. This was truly such a wonderful afternoon, not only because the kids enjoyed it, but the adults did too. And it was all thanks to www.geckoeswildlife.com.au. So this is a bit of a plug for them, but also to mums and dads who make the right choices for their children and celebrate their milestones by making them caring and informed individuals. The kids loved the show of wild animals, complete with turtles, baby possums small enough to curl up in your palm, bearded lizards and friendly snakes. There was a beautiful barking owl and a blue tongued skink. But the best was left for last and this was without doubt the gentle appearance of Bumpy the Wombat. She sat in her keepers lap, with the aplomb of a princess and loved the attention and the cuddles that every gave her.

Just look at those claws and the vestigial thumb.

And a bearded Lizard on your cuff. 

So next time you want to celebrate life - think about sharing it with some wildlife. It is truly the perfect match.
