Weekend Traffic Jam Reboot!- May 16

May 17, 2024

Welcome to the Weekend Traffic Jam a weekly link up which I’m delighted to be joining as a co-host in 2024.

Each week, I’ll be joining Marsha, from Marsha in the Middle, Melynda, from Scratch Made Food for Hungry People, and Lisa, from Boondock Ramblings, so please take the time to visit the other co-hosts as well as two or three of those who have linked!

If you would like to be a co-host come join us. It’s a great way to meet other bloggers.

The latest from the WLWA50 blog

Last week, Mike and I enjoyed a wonderful 3 nights at Stanthorpe which is about 3 hours drive from Brisbane. We stayed in a very well appointed cottage on 35 acres and it was so, so quiet! It was the perfect getaway and we certainly packed a lot in without feeling too rushed. It certainly was the R&R we needed and I’ll be writing more about our trip in coming posts.

It’s been two weeks since our short getaway to Stanthorpe so I finally had time to write a post about our visit – 3-night getaway to Stanthorpe & the Granite Belt. We had such a lovely time and since then we have book another short trip for end of July. We are heading up to North Queensland for 6 nights which I’m looking forward to.

The third Thursday and Friday of each month is busy for me with blogging. On the 3rd Thursday it is time for Tell Us About link up. Each month there is a prompt and this month it was Tell Us About…. Musical Influences. Music has been a large part of my life so I’ve written about the music that influenced me growing up and even into my 50s From ABBA to Pink Floyd to AC/DC – Musical Influences .

On the 3rd Friday of each month it is time for What’s On Your Bookshelf? Link up where we share what we have been reading over the last month. Pop over and see what I and others have been reading and maybe leave me a comment with some of your suggestions – What’s On Your Bookshelf? – May 2024.

I’ve linked these posts to this week’s link up so hope you enjoy reading them.

Wishing you a happy and healthy week, it’s now time for the Weekend Traffic Jam Reboot!
