Apologies to all who were bored to death by my last post on car insurance. I just thought it was amazing the difference in price. And thanks Epskee for her great comment. My parents had a similar nightmare trying to get a car repaired with elcheapo insurance as well. Given our current financial dire straits our choice was between no comprehensive insurance and the cheap stuff, so I went cheap. I just hope we get through the next year with no mishaps.
Anyhoo. Have spent the day in the company of my wonderful Mother cleaning the house. Yes, she rolled up her sleeves and bravely fished out everything under the kids beds. What a woman. Presently our kitchen smells of new bread and drying basil, the bathrooms smell of eucalyptus oil and the lounge of lavender. And I can walk through the playroom without getting some small and annoying toy embedded in the sole of my foot.
A few things are looking good in the garden right now.
Mini-capsicums nearly ripe - sorry about the quality of the photo, late afternoon sun is most annoying.
And on a final note, I'd like to congratulate my agent on having two of her authors on the long list for the Miles Franklin Literary award. YAY Sophie :)
