Weekend reading

I'm looking forward to a seeing Shane and Alex this weekend. We'll be looking after Jamie too so having the two boys here together will be wonderful. I hope you're doing something you love over the next few days.

My simple living masterclass at the Brisbane Writers' Festival is booked out now, it's on next Friday. If you read my blog and have booked a place, please introduce yourself when you're there. I'm also doing a panel discussion about simple life with Antonia Kidman on Sunday 8 September from 10am till 11 am. Tickets are $12 - $16 and you can book online here. I hope to see you there.

  9. Hi Rhonda,

    Watched the Productive Garden video with Alan Titchmarsh. Was an enjoyable half hour. Alan has a huge fanbase here in the UK, especially among the more mature lady ;-)

    I've been digging over the garden preparing it for grass seed (long story) but I'm taking it easy todayand just going for a wander around the local garden centre looking for inspiration.

    Have a great weekend with the family!
