SO I haven’t blogged in a while, but I have two pieces of amazing news.
First, I have booked my tickets to Adelaide!
The Pinnacle Foundation granted me $750 to go to Adelaide in May for the CBCA Biannual. Among the presenters are some of my favourite authors, include Isobelle Carmody, Eoin Colfer, and Mem Fox!
But that is not all….
My most fantastic news is this. Last week I booked my flights to Europe!!!!! I fly out of Australia on the 29th of July, and arrive back in Australia about 12.30am on the 21st of August. That is a full three weeks, the first in Amsterdam, and the other two in Belgium.
I have also decided on where I intend to stay, although it will be a couple of weeks before I can afford to pay for my accommodation.
Work has been hard, and I almost always have to take some pain meds top get through a shift. It has been taking its toll, which is evident in that I had done almost no walking today, but still my right hip is REALLY bad right now.
But still, I need the work. And just because I now have a job, doesn’t mean that I am going to give up looking for a library job.
