Not around here! I’ve just come home from an overnight stay with new Tasmanians Helen and Stewart, with bonus Tansy, Finchy and assorted children, and Amelia as well. So on top of the new friends we’re making here, we’re importing old ones from the mainland – we will steal your peoples for ourselves! Helen and Stewart are living in a lovely spot only 20 minutes away from Tansy, which makes me extraordinarily jealous of the many catch ups for tea they can have *pout* Still, it’s less than a three hour drive, which is a day trip if it has to be, and an easy overnighter for either family, so regular visits will be on the cards!
In other news, we’ve been working hard on unpacking the billions of boxes of *stuff* we’ve accumulated – not going as quickly as we’d like, but we’ll get there! We got the carpet laid in the new room on Friday, and the blinds go in tomorrow, which will see it finished. It looks fantastic, and Master Ten is most happy with his new space. Though it will be a bit longer before he has it to himself, as Miss Seven’s room is still inundated with boxes. Getting there…
Oh, and I have just been approved as the replacement judge for CBCA-Tas for the Book of the Year awards! I did one year (of the two year term) for WA in 2011 (for the 2012 awards) but due to moving and pregnancy, was unable to do the second year. Which has worked out well, as I can now pick that up for Tassie, since THEIR judge has been unable to do HIS second year! Everyone wins 🙂 Got my first box last week, so we’re off and reading.
Over the past week or so I’ve finally managed to get One Small Step and The Bone Chime Song up on Kindle – other online bookshops to follow! And there’s more stuff happening with FableCroft that I’m looking forward to announcing. Soon!
For now though, I really need to go to bed!
