May Gibbs Fellowship
Day 4

Today I chased the sun into the bedroom. I moved the bed and set up a card table (does The Burrow have EVERYTHING?) under the window. Guess I’m used to a sunny study at home and hate to have the light on before I really need to.

I also have a new man in my life. It is the automatic time announcer on my laptop. I call him Mat. Every hour he announces the time. Sometimes I thank him. Sometimes I ignore him. Still, it’s nice to have someone around to ignore. And it does help me keep track of time.

Oh, and I need an explanation of poking on Facebook. Is it friendly or aggressive? And how long should the poking go on for?

Settling in at the Burrow

May Gibbs Fellowship
Day 3

You know you’re feeling comfortable with a place when you organise a major haircut. Or is that just me? So had a Surreal experience then off to Officeworks. Today I worked out that it was going to be cheaper (and much easier) for me to buy a printer than to go down to the local library to print out. A printer for $49 – it’s also a scanner. That’s ridiculous. Of course, its the peripherals that make it worth their while – the extra ink was $36 for an extra large tank of black. Still. Spent the rest of the afternoon printing out and sorting.

Pic One: Time for a major chop.

Pic Two: Tonight I had a lovely dinner with Mary and Ian Wilson (from the May Gibbs Support Group) in their home which is a story in itself. Part of it is listed with the Heritage Trust. They should also be listed as National Treasures. Could have spent many more hours just chatting but they wisely took me home at a reasonable hour. Which means I could blog on time!

Pic Three: Congratulations to Caity for getting her driver’s license today. Not that I ever doubted she would get through. (Is that Marley on the couch now?)

Come first of May

Day One
May Gibbs Fellowship
First pic – an ‘are we there yet?’ moment, I finally reach Border Town, so take a photo to prove it. I was met by the lovely Sally Chance (fantastic name) at the end of the freeway. Sally took me to the Burrow, helped me unload my things, and left me with dinner and breakfast and a chance to settle in. I quickly set up shop with Masterchef as a backdrop and a call to home to see if they are missing me incredibly. They didn’t say so but, hey, I can read between the lines.

Second pic – I’ve set up a pinboard with my Leunig calendar and May Gibbs card from Bernie, Andrew and Ella. May’s calendar message is ‘Have Your Say – Make a Comment’. Rather apt I thought. That’s exactly what I’m here to do.

Have read through the Fellows Journal and Folio and feeling I have some big shoes to fill.
