Time to get up-to-date: I have been given 60 days to vacate #60, which came as a bit of a shock.
I started to read ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ but put it down as it was too dreary when I was worried about the move. Moved on to ‘You gotta have balls’ by Lily Brett, read a couple of chapters & then put that down. Feeling depressed as there was nothing much in the way of rental properties in Yanchep, not at a price I could afford! Then on Monday when I had some good news (I am able to rent a place just up the road) I was able to get on & read 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' It was a rather tough read all set in
I am now reading ‘The Secret’ by Elizabeth Gill (not very well written). On Saturday I went to the Joondalup Festival & bought a hard cover copy of ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ by C.S.Lewis. It cost $20 & I am really looking forward to reading it.
For the last few days I have been sorting out ‘STUFF”, have to throw, sell or give away some. I move in a couple of weeks so there is still time. Most of the postcards are down & put away in my bank of drawers. Getting help tomorrow with potting up some of the plants I put in some weeks ago. Most of my postcards are now off the wall. Ebony getting a bit worried.

The evening with Liz Byrski at Wanneroo was most enjoyable & I look forward to reading her new book ‘Trip of a Lifetime’. At the moment I am in the middle of the 2nd epic novel by Jean Auel. ‘The Valley of Horses’ leads on from ‘The Clan of the Cave Bear’ following Ayla as she leaves the Clan. The other book news is that Barbara Yates Rothwell’s short stories will be here soon, more on that later.
Weather report: rain at last yesterday, just when I had to deliver artwork to the blender gallery in Joondalup. It had eased by the afternoon so all was well. Very strong winds last night & this morning, no one swimming either day. The rest of today has been perfect.
