Some good reading...
I always enjoy visiting my favourite bookshop at Newtown, Better Read than Dead, before each school holiday, to buy a "holiday reading" book. I was pleased to find the sequel to Salvation Creek by Susan Duncan - The House at Salvation Creek. A former magazine editor, she writes beautifully about her fascinating, sometimes sad, often joyful life. Her descriptions of her beautiful water-access only community paint vivid pictures in my mind.
My holidays have finished before I have finished the book, but I've recharged my batteries and done enough planning to make the term a downhill run to Christmas. I'm going to implement the "1 - 2 - 3 - Magic" program - I'll let you know how that goes!
