this year has been completely mad since i bought the river house. what looked like being
an uncomplicated year of doing my own printmaking work then the usual busy time
around children's book week (school visits interstate for a couple of weeks) turned into a
nightmare of juggling insurance claims for replacing my flooded floor in a hurry, packing up the whole apartment while the floor was replaced, then painting the walls, putting my place on the market, negotiating finance and dealing with all the contracts and solicitors and conveyancors, termite checks . . . you name it! and three exhibitions to get together as well.
But most of that is over, my apartment's sold and i'm in wagga, visiting schools all week.
the kids are doing their usual wonderful drawings, i never get sick of seeing the fresh and
fantastic images they produce.
brisbane next week, then albury. Then it's packing and moving to the murray and the beginning of a new life :o)
