About Melba

Hello and welcome…..I am Melba – wife, mother, friend, writer, reader, thinker, photographer, traveller, camper. You will find me with either a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in my hand – dependent on the time of day.

Partnered with Mr M for almost 20 years we have two awesome teenagers, who are smart, fun and wise.

My Motto
This is my motto for living.


‘Melba Says’ is my place for sharing many of the thoughts that roll around in my head on a daily basis on everything from budgeting to social commentary, staying healthy, cooking, marriage and parenting.

I am never quiet, was always told to stop talking in class and I’m still talking now.  Stubborn and opinionated, I often say the first thing that pops into my mind – much to my regret later on!

I am on a mission to spend less money and to de-clutter our home of things we don’t use anymore as our kids grow older and we start to think about life after they become independent of us.

Life isn’t always perfect and ours certainly has it’s ups and downs – maybe you will find that you’re not alone in your life’s ups and downs.

Love Me
