On Monday I shared a link to a Melina Marchetta interview on KBR. I hope you enjoyed it.
This week has been busy with school, but also with friends and family. I went to the movies with Mr One and now Mr Six is, as I type, sleeping in my bed! He needed to feel special, which of course means a sleepover at M's place. So, I have lots to tell you about that, eventually.
Last Thursday, I mentioned the Professional Development that I was asked to present and the difficulty of finding time in three busy schedules to organise it. We managed a few meetings, although I had a few very stressful nights and a weekend of staring at a blank laptop screen. In the end it all sort of worked out and here we are now. I have to present the PD again next week, and I have a few changes to make before then. But for now, I'm leaving it be.
One of the good things that happened this week was the arrival of my book order!!! Yippee!! I ordered The Ultimate Hitch Hikers' Guide to the Galaxy (all 5 books in one volume) and I couldn't wait to jump into it. But, alas, I have had quite a bit on my "brain plate" for the past week and it has sat patiently on my bedside table since it arrived.
I have been reading a few Steven Herrick books to tide me over. Steven Herrick mostly writes verse novels which are a much easier read, although each poem contributes towards the storyline. I'm always thoroughly entertained by verse novels and intrigued by how it is done. I like to write poems, but I can't make one poem fit with another. I have to admit I haven't really tried that hard, but still.
Anyway, Steven Herrick got me through and he still is. So, Poor Mr Adams will have to wait a little longer. I need the laugh and easy read that comes with Herrick's books. Don't get me wrong Mr Herrick has written very serious verse novels (and regular novels) but I tend to head towards the funny ones.
I don't have much else to say right at the moment, except, Stay Tuned.
