The garden full of cockatoos on Tuesday afternoon.
Despite saying I wouldn’t, I read – and enjoyed – the first two Poldark books this week. Very satisfying, addictive, if imperfect reads, set in Cornwall in the second half of the Georgian era. I’m not sure how far into the series I’ll go, because some not so nice things happen, and series that run too long tend to lose their way a bit.
Is it just me, or has everyone been incredibly rude this week? I’ve had Russian spammers leaving nasty comments on my Pinterest account. I’ve got rude comments on my blog. People type first and think later (or in the case of the spammers, they just never think!).
I’ll be in Sydney (unless something goes wrong!) when this post goes up. We are going to see Les Misérables. We were supposed to go up on Friday and lodge court documents for my grandmother’s estate – can you believe we have to travel 3-4 hours to do that in person! Australia needs to change a few things when the states are so big! – but the papers didn’t arrive in time.
Which means another huge, long interstate trip for us and the expense of a hotel room, which is incredibly unfair. New South Wales is bigger than Texas, and it’s nowhere near our biggest state!
