Monday summer sunset in Canberra.

Another hot week, which has made watching the Winter Olympics an odd experience!

The National Multicultural Festival is on here in Canberra at the moment, and we braved the heat and the crowds yesterday afternoon to pay a visit. Should have worn something traditionally Ukrainian!

The Middle Eastern/Gulf section was very strategically organised this year, including the Palestinian part, which has Trump to thank for the slightly awkward Jerusalem billboards. Also notable: Qatar was nowhere near countries like the United Arab Emirates.

We finished it all off with drinks at a Hawaiian bar.

Diaper Duty Vampire (Vampires of Amber Heights Book 1) by R E Mullins

Recommended Olympic-themed read.

I was going through my “favourites’ shelf on Goodreads the other day, in search of a book recommendation for someone, and came across a book I read years ago that I remember I enjoyed.

Set in New Zealand, and with a winter sport theme, this is a good one if you’re in the Winter Olympic spirit (go Korea! I used to live there, and am dying to go back for a visit soon).

Natalie Anderson is an author I binged on a while ago. She has such a great tone when she writes, and always feels really contemporary and easy to relate to.

Walk on the Wild Side (One Hot Fling #2) by Natalie Anderson

A fling with sinfully hot champion snowboarder Jack Greene isn’t Kelsi Reid’s normal behaviour…but one glimpse of his wicked eyes has Kelsi throwing caution to the deep blue sea (along with her clothes!). After all, who better to go crazy with than a man who deserves a gold medal for his prowess on the slopes and in the bedroom…?
Then Kelsi crashes down with a terrifying bump—of the baby kind. They couldn’t be worse matched—Jack is Mr. Right-Now, while Kelsi craves stability. But it’s hard to keep your feet on the ground once you’ve met the man who turns your world upside down….
