I’ve been silent here this week- unusually so. What’s more unusual about this silence is that with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Gemini, silence is a little hard to come by. Here in Sydney, the Writers Festival is on…and I’ve been to a few events. Yesterday I spent the whole of a miserable, […]
So there I was trying to fix the garage door- it had blown open in the wind. But where was the masking tape? The string? Duct tape even? Our garage is a pig sty (naturally I blame my husband…) so I couldn’t find any occy straps (sorry, octopus straps). Hence the masking tape- which I’m […]
