I thought I’d just say a quick hello. I’ve missed you!
The last month has been a madly busy time of packing; condensing our belongings from a generously Australian-sized four bedroom house to a London-proportioned, two bedroom house; preparing for a Masters exam (the big day is tomorrow); writing an assignment; and, oh yes, running a business. As you can imagine, I’m exhausted.

The perfect excuse for a break and a treat and this morning my dear friends Catherine and Steven took me for coffee and cake by the Potting Shed, to the newly planted Sydney Park Wetlands and then to my favourite of all, Cat Alley in Surry Hills. Wow! What a place this is. I need to move there at some point in my life. A total oasis in the city.
I’ll write it up soon, but here’s a picture to give you a taste in the meantime. The entire street, covered in plants from top to bottom, left to right. And the plants are just part of the attraction. It is a ‘beaut’, as they say!
