Nothing beats being warm and cosy


whilst the rain pitter patters on the iron roof

but alas

twice a day we must walk

our dogs insist

they know what time it is.

So in the rain

despite the floods

A Wandering we go.

In response to the girl  that dreams awake 52 week photo challenge.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  3. Absolutely love rain – the sound of it, the feel of it, the taste of it, the splash of it, and the beauty of trickling down everywhere.

    Our dog has a knack for deciding it’s time to go outside just as the rain starts or let’s loose. You had quite the flooding!
