Hi it's me! Oh gosh! Totally gone AWOL there. Sorry about that. What a hectic start to the year it's been.
You know, I miss writing here, I really do. Sometimes, when I go about my day, words and stories are swirling around in my head just crying out to be written down here. But I've been working, a lot. Which is great because they are fantastic fun projects with great people. And while working full time takes the pressure off financially, it leaves little time for creativity, writing and gardening, and I miss that. It's a dilemma isn't it? How to balance work with creativity. How do you manage it?
Two things I wanted to tell you about, firstly about a fantastic campaign our local council have launched to celebrate the people, produce and places of the Huon Valley called, well, The Huon. I was thrilled to be invited to part of the campaign and you can see the gorgeous short film they made below.
Check it out...
And the second thing is that I'm heading to the Tamar Valley Writers Festival this weekend. It's an incredible program with some truly inspiring writers. I'm feeling nervously excited!
I'll be on two panels, one with Peter Cundall, and one with Tino Carnevale. That's a life goal unlocked right there.
Next week, I am going to try and write more here, stories about the plums, and apples, the cakes and Rayburn, because that's what I like. See you then! x
