A final review for the year

Christmas at Grandad’s Farm featured on Mornings with Fiona Parker today. Thanks to Fiona and to Sarah Mayor Cox who is the other half of this regular chat about children’s books. They reviewed ‘Seadog’ earlier in the year, and recently ‘Big Red Kangaroo’. 

Apart from my obvious appreciation of them reviewing my books, I’ve enjoyed listening to their reviews of other children’s books.

Tea?

I mentioned I’d recently enjoyed an al fresco lunch in the country, but I may not have mentioned that there was a dress code. I raided our dress up collection and found this set of quick change ‘tails’, complete with pockets in the tails of the jacket. (quick change coz it’s from a stage play where the actor had to transform into … hmm can’t remember what … but it had to happen quickly). Fortunately the weather was mild and I didn’t swelter.

I hope I haven’t set the bar too high – what will I wear next year?

In the last few days …

I’ve spotted this enormous magnolia flower …

travelled to Gippsland in the rain …

shared an al fresco luncheon in Central Victoria …

inhabited a renovation-in-progress that was also ‘home’ to a wet-plaster scotty dog …

enjoyed lace and leaves …

marvelled at the durability of old words …

 and played with ruin. That is all.
