5 AM

OFF TO CHINA today.  it's 5 a.m. and i want to roll over and go back to sleep.

Yesterday i drove from the grampians to melbourne, no hurry.  i left a day earlier than i'd
planned and took my time, such a good idea.

i love these round haystacks, everything is looking gorgeous in the wimmera, they've had a great
year for the wheat crops.

poor little house in 
stawell with beautiful
belladonna lilies 
coming up in front

I called in the see the Anns at Books Illustrated, we'll all be in beijing
 together,  above - their very funny dog whose name is escaping me :0\

In the evening with Isobelle Carmody and editor of some of my first books Helen Chamberlin - great to catch up with them at Madame Sousou

i'm here at my friends' Chris and Ian's, after a lovely night having dinner out under the stars on a warm and balmy night.  time to get up and ready to go.
