Okay, here we go – the weekly rundown or wrap up or whatever you want to call it of the things that made me smile.
I know that the calendar says that it’s supposed to be winter, but we’ve had temperatures in the mid 20’s all week – that’s celcius, for US readers.
Of course. We’ve had some great colour in the sky this week, but missed the best one on Saturday. Thankfully, the rest of Instagram didn’t.
We mixed our morning walk up a tad on Friday and caught the sunrise at Point Cartwright. Same same but different
Although Queensland doesn’t celebrate the Queen’s Birthday until October, my office in Sydney was on holiday on Monday and so was I. I used the morning wisely and went up to the picnic tables at Alex Hill to get some words written.
On Friday our half of the coast was on holiday for Sunshine Coast Show Day. Again, the morning found me up at Alex Hill with my laptop, a thermos of hot water, some tea bags and a mug.
No work on Monday also meant an afternoon beach walk as well as a morning one. Adventure Spaniel was pretty happy with that too.
Eat Street, Northshore
We’ve been meaning to head down to eat Street in Brisbane since we first moved up. Sarah went down with some friends a couple of weeks ago and told us we had to go. At it’s simplest form it’s a heap of food stalls and food trucks in a heap of shipping containers on the waterfront at Hamilton. But it’s so much more than that.
We had problems making decisions so ended up having a bit of this and a bit of that. The live music was great, the vibe was great, the night was mild, and the food was everything you’d want from street food.
I spent Saturday morning with a great bunch of people at a workshop run by Belinda Pollard of Small Blue Dog Publishing. Aside from the fact that it’s always good to meet and talk with people on the same publishing journey as I am, I also learnt some more about distribution channels, action plans and publishing hardcover or photography books – something that will absolutely come in handy for a project I have in mind. #clancyofthecampfire
It was definitely a morning very well spent.
Speaking of writing…
I’m 25,000 words into the re-write of Escape To Curlew Cottage… and it’s coming together very nicely. So nicely that I’ll start to tell you bits and pieces about the location, the characters and the foodie stuff in the next few weeks…
That was my week – how was yours?
