This week I have been
- my novel!
- school reports…
- Swimming with the yawkyawk
- Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell (til very late one night I might add)
- The Wonderling by Mira Bartok
ATTENDING the announcement of some local literary awards. I didn’t win but was long-listed for the Memoir prize and short-listed for the Poetry prize. Max’s reaction – “Mum! Next time write a better poem!”

MAKING Halloween costumes at school out of paper and cardboard for a mini-STEAM project
