A truly beautiful Minxy mix of charm, inspiration, practical advice, and pretty projects to simplify and beautify your life and home. - Jane Brocket, The Gentle Art of Domesticity
Winter holiday, I can taste you
Cramming novel writing in around promoting the new book and spending time with a boisterous 4-year old lately. Very conscious that she starts school next year, but feeling psyched about where she’ll be going. Kids didn’t have iPad minis to work from in my day. And I’m all for this Humanist approach educators seem to be opting for. School camp, learning to read, drama classes… she’s gonna love it.
James and I are about to take two weeks off in Sydney. We’re staying local this winter, putting Olive in for a couple of extra days’ care to hang out together and work our way through the Good Food Guide. Can’t. Wait. Been training hard to combat the influx of food and drink, and have a few races coming up where I can put my new skillz from Balance to good use.
What else-ski? Had a fab event with the lovely Monica Trapaga last night for City of Sydney and met Claire from Ariel, whose mum made her this book bag from Brownie badges. So cool. I’m thinking similar projects to make with Olive’s old gear. Nostalgic, me? Just a little.
