721 Hi!!! Thankyou Brenda & Michael:) Yes I have been rather busy with lots of things so sorry for my absence. Hope everyone is well!
I've just had my French "family" stay with me and spend 9 days in Vic before heading to Perth. Was so lovely to show them some fantastic sights around Bendigo/Melb and get down to Apollo Bay and see the 12 Apostles for the first time, even treated them with a helicopter flight was amazing!! Back to work on Mon after 3 weeks off so not so keen about that! Hope everyone has a great w/end!! xx

Hi Krista, welcome! You must include Melina Marchetta in your Aussie books, she's brilliant!! I've been lucky enough to have met Shaun Tan in my hometown & he is amazing!! Hope you enjoy your time here!

Hi to all the new members!!

Thanks very much KL good to be back, anything exciting happen whilst I was away??
721 Hi everyone I'm back after a hiatus from Goodreads. I've been on holidays & then once returning to work got a nasty cold.
But I must apologise to those in Adelaide who I hoped I could catch up with whilst I was on holidays, unfortunately as things turned out it would have been difficult to arrange as I did a bit of house hopping whilst there including spending a few days in Victor. I promise next time I'm in Adelaide I'll organise a get together!!
Those who are in Adelaide may of seen footage on the news (2 weeks ago) taken by a local in Victor of a Southern Right whale coming up to the pier at Granite Is. Well that was my sister & it's me she was talking to, slightly embarrassed about it but it was a memorable sighting I'll never forget!
I hope everyone has been well & enjoying their reading. I finally got an Sony e-reader which I haven't yet loaded any books on but plan to when I have time, very excited to get this as a gift from my girls:)
Hi to all the new members that I've missed hope you enjoy your time here!
