I have created this page for several reasons.  My family and friends are in Canada and I am in Australia.  My homepage will keep them up to date with what's new and exciting in my life.  The second reason is to have a reference point on the Internet, for long lost friends to hopefully get in touch with me.  In my spare time I will add as much value to this page as I can so that maybe some web surfer's like myself, will be able to find something in here of use to them.  I have included some photos, affirmations and jokes for now.  I will be adding some useful links, emoticons and much more... 

I would love it if you took a minute to sign my Guest book.  When you do, in the comments section let me know what you would like to see on this site and if I can add it I will.  Enjoy!

If you don't find anything of interest on this trip here, put this site in your favourites and come back.  I will be adding stuff all the time.



My name is Joelle.  Some people call me Joey.  My husbands name is Andonis.  Our cheeky dog's name is Skipper. Skip for short.  He's a Jack Russell.  Oh! and I should not forget , Bluey.  He's our little Budgie.

Let me tell you a bit about myself.  I'm a French Canadian girl living in the beautiful and warm land of Oz (Australia).  I've been here for a year and a half and I intend to stay until life takes me elsewhere.

So far life has been very interesting.  My mother often said that I should write a book and call it "The trials and Tribulations of Joelle".  Who knows I might still write it someday? I'm a person who loves to keep busy.  As a result I'm always interested in something new.  By writing this web page I hope to be able to share some of those things with friend, family and anyone else who shares my interests.

At the moment I am an Office Manager for a recruitment firm in Melbourne, Australia.  If you're looking for work or want to hire someone in Australia send me an email at You can also find some information about recruitment in my list of resourceful links.

As I wrote earlier, my husbands name is Andonis. Donny for short.  He's a Greek, Australian artist.  Over the years he's painted many beautiful Mediterranean pieces.  Lately, his energy has been in creating amazing folding screens.  You can view some of his work by clicking on the Art by Andonis link.

Donny and I met about three years ago.  We are what you would call an internet couple.  We discovered each other from opposite sides of the world.  I was in Vancouver, Canada and he was in Melbourne, Australia.  We met on Yahoo chat.  It wasn't long before we began to call each other.  During this time I'm sure we made our local phone companies very happy to have us as customers.  This went on for several months.  It was the most romantic experience of our lives.  Donny sent me letters by post everyday for at least two months, until he bought a plane ticket to come to Canada.  We we're both so excited, but at the same time we we're really nervous.  Luckily for us our first meeting was just as imagined.  We fell in love immediately. A year later we we're married.

We had a wonderful honeymoon in Victoria, BC.  We travelled across Canada from British Columbia to Ontario.   This was a good opportunity for Donny to meet my family in Ottawa and Toronto.  For me it was a time to say bye to everyone before I left for Australia and here we are now!

If your curious to know what we've been up to lately visit our "What's up" link.

This is our first attempt at making a web page.  We will try to do it as best as we can.  Hopefully something in these pages will catch your eye.  If that's the case we'd love to have you sign our guest book.  If you think their is something we can do to make this site better send us an email at and please tell us how.
