How time flies! 25 days ago, we welcomed into the world our baby girl. What a whirlwind it has been since her arrival; lots of sleepless nights (as expected!) but also plenty of milk drunk cuddles and cheeky smiles. I haven't picked up a book or written any reviews in the past few weeks, but… Continue reading Baby and reading update
So it's been some time since I chatted about anything but books on my blog, and even that has been rather sparse!

On the weekend I loaded up my car along with hubby and our furry son Buddy and we headed out west to Mudgee, a four hour drive from South-West Sydney. The moment we were beyond Richmond and entered the countryside, I felt the working week's tension drain from my body. Ah, I love being in… Continue reading 2013 Mudgee Reader’s Festival Wrap-Up
