What happened to my A+ in Handwriting?

Oh My Goodness, what happened to my handwriting??? It used to be legible! It was my best subject in primary school.

I love nothing more than writing letters. Real ones written by my fingers. I still write a lot and love receiving handwritten notes. They always seem so much more serious and thoughtful. 

Anyway, I'm linking up with the fabulous Eden Riley from Edenland today where others are showcasing their handwriting too. I have no idea what my handwriting says about me. Please just presume the lighting in the caravan was appalling (it is!), the texta was a bad choice of tool and all those years at Uni scribing as fast as I could have played a part in turning my once lovely handwriting into scribble. I actually find it hard to write slowly now. Odd.


  1. There's something special about a handwritten note now, isn't there.
    I think your thong tan (of the foot variety) is absolutely brilliant!
    Power to you continuing as the solo adult in that there van.

  2. LOVE your writing and adore your feet. (Is that odd of me? But I love love love a tan line....)


  3. Just catching up on your blog. I love Esperance. So stunning. I spent a lot of my childhood at Bremer Bay which has those gorgeous silvery white beaches too.

    Good luck with the moving and the rest of your trip.

  4. I know what you mean about the handwriting slipping ... me too!!! But your's is perfect legible, which is more than I can say for half my family, left handers all.

    What did Remy make of air travel?

    1. Remy endured 2 flights in the end (quick stopover in Melbourne) and then a very turbulent flight into Hobart so he was far from impressed by the time he came off the conveyor belt. But as soon as he got home he was very happy. He remembered our place form 2 years ago and was up to his old wallaby-chasing tricks :-D

  5. That is the best thong tan I have ever seen Mel....thank god someone invented thongs hey??? all you need on a roadtrip...

  6. I love your texta writing.

    Usually the texta runs out half way down the page!

  7. That sand and those thong tan lines are gorgeous! Texta on narrow lines is hard!

  8. MEL.

    Beautiful blog, beautiful photos ... and the caravan! Can I borrow it once you are through? I have said for years I will do what you have done. One day I just might.

    Thong tan lines - gold.

    Thank you so much for linking up!

  9. Love the thongy tan lines! Speaks of happy days spent playing in the sun.

    You know my handwriting is do very bad I never graduated from pencil to pen :)

  10. Hello Gorgeous I love your handwriting. You can see mine in my recent post. And my, what a tan line! I have never had one, being the pale-skinned type ☺. J x

  11. That last photo is great - it could easily find its place on the newsagency stand as a post card.

  12. Years of taking notes in university lectures tends to wreck one's handwriting!
