but all of them cause happiness.
1. Earworm of the fortnight has been The Captain & Tennielle's 'Love will keep us together', so much so that I was compelled to download it from the iTunes Shop and learn the lyrics whilst lying in my boarding school dorm in Mittagong last week. I've now moved past the lyrics (which are great for bellowing in the shower) and am listening keenly to the background harmonies, some of which have Carpenter-like qualities and others are just darn fruity.
2. Browsing in a bookshop on Saturday, I was thinking that I'll be in another reading lull once I've finished my latest book (Diana Wynne-Jones' The Pinhoe Egg), and wondering if there was an author out there in whose writing I can submerse myself for a while, you know, read everything in their backlist. I found a book that I'd read a review about that day: Kate Cole-Adams' Walking to the Moon, and noticed it was published by Text. I didn't buy it then (I'll go to my local Co-op bookshop and get my member's discount) but I realised that I've read a lot of Text books and they've all been fabulous. So I made a decision there and then that over the next 12 months or so I'll catch up on the Text backlist. And that decision makes me very happy and excited.

4. And printing. My ink is behaving itself today. That makes me very happy.
I'm still getting my Sturt photos together. Not long now.
