Bendigo sunset

Sunset in Bendigo, the weekend of the wool show. They're rebuilding the hospital, hence the cranes.

Australian Tapestry Workshop #curiocity #openhousemelbourne

Australian Tapestry Workshop, visited as part of Open Melbourne. I saw in the ATW newsletter today that this is now complete and the cutting off ceremony looms. Pun not intended but ha.

Gorgeous in any weather

I went to Sydney for work and stayed an extra night to play and catch up with friends.

Well hello there Sydney

This was the view from the kitchen of the flat i stayed in. Not too shabby.

Late meeting this evening means a morning off and a walk by the river after school drop-off.

I bought a Fitbit because i am a gadget junkie. No i'm not really, i'm generally a late adopter, but i need a buddy to make me exercise and i'm antisocial so an electronic buddy motivates me just as well as a walking buddy does. And i can listen to podcasts while i walk by the river on weekends or early mornings ...

La Trobe

... and in my lunch hours. This week i only sat with my knitting once at lunch. Every other day i was out walking around campus.

Knitting up the blue Shibui Staccato

Spring is so close. Little pockets of sunshine pop up here and there and warm breezes whisper. Tantalising.

ten days in Bali

Just what the doctor ordered.

Terraced rice paddies. Lunchtime view.

Full moon ceremony to cleanse the villa. We only got to see it because our flight is 10pm and we have a late checkout.

Final pretty drinks

1000 year old temple turtle with offerings on its head.

Rest day today. Book, sticky black rice with coconut ice cream, pool, bougainvillea blossoms flaunting down on me.
