About Me

photo-on-8-11-16-at-8-35-amHello. My name is Margaret. You can call me Marg. My kids call me Goose ( mother goose) and my grand children call me “grandma”. I am a modern day grandmother who has been blessed with 10 wonderful grand children and 1 step grandson.  As a part time teacher, writer and Christian woman I long to share the ups and downs of this exciting grand mothering experience. As a resident of beautiful Mapleton on the Blackall Ranges in Queensland, I like gardening, cooking, children’s picture books, art, op shop browsing and travelling.


How do I manage being a grandma?  What is romancing with grandma like! Can I pass on tips about the roller coaster ride of loving, caring for, teaching and enjoying the little ones?  I would love to share with you some of the happenings in my life? Those moments of inspiration, celebration , frustration and truth.

I am determined and organised, firm yet fun to be around. A woman who likes kisses, cuddles and the tender connections that children offer. I love romantic poetry and feeling loved. I love the sparkle and shine of children’s literature; creativity, new words from the mouth of babes. I hope you enjoy reading my blog.

  1. Hi Margaret,
    Thanks for your wonderfully informative blog post about Common Dreams 2016. I live in Ledbury, Herefordshire, UK and participate on the Progressive Christian Network website and forum. As we are hoping to join Adrian Alker online to discuss his book, I have posted a link and short extract from your blog, as it will be of great interest to those in the UK. Hope this is OK and that you (and others) can join us online, as we discuss ‘Is Radical Church Possible’.
    Best wishes,
    (Logos Ledbury)

  2. Greetings Margaret! We met outside the Louvre. We were just looking at the fun picture of we three “girls” in front of the pyramid. Thank you for taking that. All the best,
    Tannys, Tori, and Lekszi


      1. We hope you and Bill are having a lovely Christmas! Cold and snowy here — I wished for the snow — and family is here so we’ll have a great time catching up. 🎄🇨🇦
