I've got a headache, courtesy of running around like a mad thing as husband is schmoozing with his Irish clients for a couple of weeks (read trying to recover from jetlag and tonsillitis in a bar or two in downtown Dublin! I'm not sure if I'm jealous or not...). Anyway, I'm just back from taking darling daughter to her swimming lesson and can report that my little 'bridge' book has been accepted for the inaugural East Gippsland Gallery artists' book awards. Hooray! You can take a look at the book again if you want to here.
The extra-observant among you (I know you're all observant really) might notice that I've succumbed to a new technical trend: TinyURL. WHAT????! Yup, I'm a Luddite when it comes to technology (I like printing presses designed 100's of years ago and I still think mobile phones are a nuisance except for vehicle-related emergencies). However I have cottoned on to Twitter because I'm informed it's a great way to get people interested in your blog/Etsy shop/life and I'm having difficulty pruning my witticisms down to the necessary 140 characters. Hence TinyURL which is a magic little utility that condenses enormously long website addresses into tiny little ones that don't deplete Twitter's 140 characters too much in the telling.
