so far I've had a lovely nap in this much anticipated cooler weather, enjoyed a generous square of tony's mum's famous jam slice for afternoon tea and a long chat with a good friend in sydney. this weekend we are celebrating the birth of a little boy who entered the world this morning, the first in my friendship group and I can't wait to meet the little guy in sydney in a few weeks time.
tony's dad is visiting this weekend and he has very generously agreed to deliver a special care package for me when he drives home on monday. so tomorrow I will be baking a cake and some bread to be sent along with a big box of local veggies to someone who really needs it.
we might also buy a raised garden kit so we can put in some veggies for autumn!
if you're interested, here are two great podcasts I listened to this week:
- tit for tat - the story of sandra wilson - a fascinating look into the complex life of one of nsw's longest serving female prisoners. sandra was 20 when she shot and murdered a stranger.
- harper high - part two - this two part series was devastatingly good but also heartbreaking. this american life sent three reporters into a chicago high school which had been troubled by gang violence. the series starts here.
