About and Legal Stuff

Welcome to “My Adagio Life” and thank you for visiting. I have used that term ‘adagio’ because I hope the portrait of that part of my life that I will show in this blog is something akin to the adagio music tempo, at least compared to the life I lead professionally – the latter of course occupying a great proportion of my existence.


My name is Catherine. I need to say at the outset that I am very new to blogging and to be honest I don’t even read blogs regularly.  However, I’m aiming to be more creative and to find my own voice. I want to push my creative thinking, conquer new horizons, broaden my outlook, and – well, basically have some fun and enjoyment.  I figure I may as well start here, or at least, build on what I started here some years ago.

I’m a mum to three teenagers, a business owner and lawyer. I’m also ‘mum’ to four dogs, three horses, four geese, a parrot, a budgie, a cat and at this stage five chooks. I live in an absolutely gorgeous part of regional Queensland in Australia.  Because of the busy, focussed and intense nature of my professional life, I relish and treasure my home life (that ‘adagio life’), all that it is comprised of, and what I get up to in that life.


What exactly do I get up to? Well, aside from keeping the animal life happy and healthy (including the human animals!) I garden, I read, I play my piano and I craft, and sometimes I just sit and think. This corner of the www is about those activities and any new ones I want to introduce.  This blog is also for those like me needing a break from pressured life and seeking a peaceful, easy feeling, even if it’s just for a few moments every now and then.


Although this blog doesn’t take comments, there is a Facebook headquarters where connection can be made  – just follow the link at the bottom of each post. One last thing – the anecdotes related on this blog while true may feature people whose names have been changed to protect identities.
