And the name says it all… just completed for Pittsworth District Alliance, The Pittsworth Pulse and Pain Half Marathon promotions.
A great event for this town, people will come from far and wide as various Tri Clubs, Fitness Freaks, once-a-year runners and their families spend the day in Pittsworth. If you know the area, its not flat. Copps Hill will sort the best of them out. I’m always up for a challenge, so I’ll be on a water station with the girls, and also on the end of the long lens of my camera, recording some action.
Amazing Prizes, not only for the fit but for the funny too, with prizes for best dressed. After the event families will be able to relax in the grounds of the Historical Society, with food, drink and award presentations. See you there? I’ll pass you some water…! Have a happy and productive day… Natxx

Ciao for now. Nat
Recently the Goondiwindi Rotary Club along with the Rotary Club of Surfers Sunrise undertook a project to design and assemble a house for The Children’s House of Hope in Samoa. Members traveled to Samoa and built the house to accommodate 30 children. A wonderful project. To decorate the house on completion, the Goondiwindi Club engaged me to design and supply a canvas of various Australian images. We decided it would travel overseas best if it was rolled up in a tube, then when the Club members arrived in Samoa, they would knock up a frame to stretch it over. So we made it really big and packed it off. According to stories and legends told by the group, it arrived ok and was mounted on a frame then onto the wall of one of the communal rooms.
Im hoping for a photo of it in the House, but haven’t had one sent as yet. Still…so happy to help on a great, life changing project, even if it is in the tiniest most insignificant way. Love your life. Natxx
So it goes a bit like this:
It is one of Australia’s toughest & most challenging races. Not for the faint hearted it is a 2KM Swim, 80 KM Bike Ride, 20 KM Run in the freezing waters of the Macintyre River and the blazing heat of the Goondiwindi summer!
This weekend past was the Goondiwindi Hell of the West, and dispite the floods in our part of the world..the event went on, only as they do in Australia!
Well done to the 600 odd competitors. Here is their new website we completed only a week or so ago. Perfect timing!
Till next time, Nat

I have just finished a lovely clean and fresh website for Bonorang Orchard .
This is in preparedness for next season when their delicious oranges will be available to buy online. Yes, you will still be able to head out there with the kids for an afternoon picking the fruit, but when you can’t, or if you live far away, you can have them delivered right to your front door. (Australia only…sorry folks).
Yummo, delish, fresh juice from tree ripened oranges.
I did some family portraits earlier in the year with this lovely family in the orchard.
What a gorgeous place. Till next time Nat
Love Goondiwindi ~ The Official Visitors Guide, is an A5 magazine distributed out to Visitors Information Centres up and down our east coast promoting Goondiwindi and the region. With the design and much of the photography by Vigour Graphics, it is a gorgeous 24 pages, all glossy, informative read. Published by the Border Rivers Chamber of Commerce, the first issue was received so well, that we had to do a new run earlier than expected. I love this cover, (despite it being by accident), as these 2 vibrant, charming ladies reflect the wonderful place we come from.
Hope you are happy and well. Nat xx
Residents from Goondiwindi and surrounds had the opportunity to one-on-one meetings with state ministers when the Newman government’s fifth community cabinet came to town recently. Locals met with ministers to discuss infrastructure funding, support for the agriculture sector, government services and the cost of living, as well as other important issues.
Above is a collage artwork that I was commissioned to create for the Goondiwindi Regional Council, reflecting on our floods, our landmarks and Gunsynd. Quite a large piece, it was presented to Mr Newman from the town of Goondiwindi. I named it “Reflections of Goondiwindi”
Be happy and productive. Nat xx
