Yes! I’m still alive and kicking!


Thanks to my followers for being in touch and asking me how I’m going. I find it hard to believe that it’s been a couple of months since my last post here!

I forget that not everyone has Facebook to keep up with the news as I post it.

I’m here in Darwin still, but had a quick trip to Brisbane to catch up with my godparents (Allen & Rose Jagger) when they were in Australia. It was wonderful to be able to spend almost a week together – been so, so many years since we did that. In fact, I think it was when I was at Rishworth!

Not enough time to catch up with friends, but I hope to get back that way in May and catch up with all friends then.

On the home front, I still keep busy with the gardening – never ending trips to the dump with all the palm fronds. They might seem exotic trees to others and look like low maintenance, but they are a pain!  On the plus side, Molly and Janie are always up for a trip and love going out there for a drive.

Really exciting news is that two of the books I’ve been working on with clients are published. One has hit the best seller list in its category. I do enjoy editing, as it combines my love of reading and English skills. Who would have thought that it would lead to this?

Sasha and I have just finished working on the edits of a biography for an Australian client. It was nice to collaborate together and the book is currently doing the round of publishers. Once again, because of confidentiality, I am unable to reveal titles or authors.

The Dry Season is finally arriving, so walking around Darwin is once more very pleasant, as opposed to the hot, sticky humidity that’s been greeting me for the last 6 months!

Given I’ve got so many overseas followers, I’m going to start a regular weekly update to inroduce you all a little more to Australia, and I’ll be starting with Darwin.

That’s all for now folks. It’s girls night so Sasha and I are about to kick back and relax with the latest Season of Game of Thrones!
