Anh Do - Artist

I didn't realise that the multi-talented Australian comedian and writer Anh Do could also paint.
Here is the portrait of his father he submitted for The Archibald Prize.

A Love Letter

Yesterday when I attended Grandparents' Day at some grandchildren's school I came across this piece of writing that one of them had written. As he had obviously written it in a hurry I will add a transcription of its contents below the image.

I love my grandparents because almost every sleepover they let me go to my favourite restaurant and have my favourite drink.

They let me go down into the library (shed) to get new books.

They entertain me and keep me safe.

We have breakfast in bed.

Isn't that beautiful.

Mr GeniAus found a parcel for me on our doorstep yesterday. As we don't use our front door (only strangers do that) we don't know how long the parcel had been sitting there.

On opening it I found a book and inside was a note from Hachette Books that read "Congratulations, Happy Reading". I guess the book was a prize from some competition I entered!

My surprise
As I'm curious it may jump to the top of my reading list.

Thanks to Hachette Books for this unexpected surprise.

Diary of a Decrapifier

On Facebook earlier this week I announced that I was going to engage in some decrapifying. It is now Friday and I am having trouble remembering what I have ditched already.

Both Mr GeniAus and I are committed to this exercise which we hope to sustain until we set off on  our next holiday.

I am adding this new page to my blog so that I can keep track of what I've ditched and to give myself much needed positive reinforcement..

La Vinotheque

As a former librarian I love visiting bibliotheques when I am travelling however I was tempted to pop into this emprorium when I was holidaying in Bordeaux.

The Impossible Dream - an empty nest

Loved this birthday card that I received from one of my offspring and his family
