Links and Literature

24Nov08

First of all, some very good news is that I finally have a flat to move into – in Petersham – and can soon stop working out of my mother’s spare room! We (my partner K and I) will be moving in next weekend and the flat is big enough for me to set up a little home office in the sunroom (which faces west so it might live up to its name a little too well this Summer) and store some books and maybe grow some plants.

It has been a long time since I’ve had a proper home. It was about 20 months ago that we moved out of our place in Marrickville, although there were a couple of temporary homes in the Nove Mesto or New Town district of Prague and then the New Town/Stockbridge area of Edinburgh, neither of which were particularly new and both of which were extremely lovely – it is a shame we won’t be continuing this theme and living in Newtown, Sydney! But Petersham will have to do. It has the distinct advantage of having Portuguese custard tarts in abundance.

Other good news is that I have started writing more seriously – I have embarked upon my literature review / paper / research proposal.
