|On The Move|
My sister in law is visiting from Canada and I'm meeting her in Sydney and we're going to hang out once she gets over her jet lag a bit.
While she recovers I hope to visit a couple of book shops I didn't get to last visit, eat some lovely Chinese food in Chinatown, get to the markets and generally relax a bit without a household a dogs and cats and people.
Then on Sunday we'll come back to Tassie and she'll enjoy our sights here for a month. It's going to be a busy time. We don't get many relatives visiting from North America so it's always lovely when they do come this far.
On the book front I am still reading Pride and Prejudice. I'm almost finished and hope to read on the plane. I have my ear plugs ready for the noise of a small squeally child that I know will sit somewhere close to me.
I am still enjoying the book but do find it slower going. I have gotten used to the language (pretty much) and I love the people in it and their little dilemmas. I find myself re-reading passages because I like the sound of them so much. It is a complete escape from modern life in this, our year of 2015 with all the media coverage of the awful things in life.
I wouldn't mind being in a horse and carriage going down back roads on the way to balls and all of the gossip that occurs at them.
I will be back before you know it.
