Lately I’ve Been…

Blogging With Pip e-course

So glad I signed up for this course. It was friendly, chatty environment, full of great, clear, helpful information to start (or in my case, kick start) your blog.

Cannot recommend it highly enough. You won’t regret it. Not a minute.

Gobbling up books at every opportunity:

Hhhh by Laurent Binet (Complex, but engrossing non-fiction)

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak (Liked it. Didn’t love it)

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt (Never wanted it to end)

Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (Better late than never)

Stop Press by Rachel Buchanan (Excellent book (by a friend) about the decline of newspapers)

Picnic At Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay (Second time around and I was absorbed by every word)

A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth Ozeki (Bitter sweet)

Updating my book reviewing blog, Slightly Foxed

Making a little reading space on our balcony (also used for cloud & star watching).

Making a Strawberry Sponge cake with butter cream frosting. Delish!


Worring about the bushfires that burned 8ks away from my sister’s farm, but was very proud of my nephew for helping the CFA fight them.

Swimming with hairy less and goggles. I barrelled into those wave and felt free. I love that underwater sound, that garbled blur of colour and movement.

Movies, movies, movies:

Putting a baby picture of my later Mother in a gorgeous silver frame.

Looking for jobs (& getting a little sad)

Getting obsessed with Pinterest and created, ahem, over 80 boards. I know, but the world is so interesting.
