Walkabout Had such a lovely day today.

Took Zoe to the Australian Ballet School for their summer school program. She had a terrific time, made new friends and learnt new things. She was so mature in the way she handled the challenges.

I went walking through the city and Botanic Gardens. Met some nice women in a city cafe, both crafty types. One had the cutest pink felt pig she had made, and the other the most gorgeous dolls. She sells them on Etsy and through her blog, arabellacucumber. The dolls are absolutely divine.

Had lunch with Leonie in Brunswick Street - well, breakfast actually. Lovely to catch up! Have offered to make Tom a peg apron in "manly" fabric. Should be a fun project!

Greg finished "The Kite Runner" yesterday. He doesn't think it is particularly well written but the story is such a strong one that it is a very impressive novel. He thinks the film might be too confronting to watch, although I think that the film makers won't need to make it too explicit. After all, they are using child actors - it can't be too confronting, surely? He will be teaching the novel in Year 12 English this year. It will be quite challenging for many of the students in terms of its content, but a novel worth the effort.

Zoe and I made a cool bag together. You can see the picture. It's reversible: white denim on one side and a cute red and white print on the other.
