Apologies for the delaying in updating. "Open Day" (evening) at school ending up swamping everything including my weekend time. I brought home an instrument to get it working properly, and the only thing I couldn't do was get the settings right for one particular meter. Everything else - fine. The "one particular meter" must have an order of entering the codes, and the instructions are a little feeble here. NEVER MIND - I'll crack it.
The rest of the week was cleaning up from Open Day (true) and trying to overcome deathly tiredness. After a quiet Saturday, today is MUCH better.
I'm back onto the writing again after a few distractions, and working hard on "The Isthmus." I WILL nail that first draft this week and hammer out the second/third ASAP. Then it's back to "The Max Murdoch Series" and the real start of Book 2 (exciting!) plus sketch out another unrelated story and work a little on a short story for August.
Has someone invented stretchable time? :)
Bird news: the return of the RBFs (red-browed finches) is a welcome sight to any bushwalk PLUS they're in next door's butterfly bush. They are sweet little birds. The usual rabble has been at the summmit, although it lower numbers due to the dry weather - although we did have one good rain last weekend. Nothing like the eastern states though, with their serious flooding, or the west with its fires. A country of contradictions! And speaking of fires, the hills and southern regions nearly suffocated in the smoke from a controlled burn in VICTORIA - our neighbouring state. Not really appreciated, thanks.
One year on, and I remember those in Japan who lost their lives in the tsunamis. Rest in peace, dear neighbours.
PS Today's pics: Smoke from the burn-off interstate, MtB summit, Calostemma purpureum...native garland lily - what a sight!
