Bassetts, books & pics

For the past two weeks I have been house sitting .... and I fell in love.

He's a heavy breather, has drool issues and is hard to read.

He's also adorable.



Not so adorable - the snot spray.

I live alone so it was really fun to have some excited to see me every night...if only for food :)   I loved it so much that I am contemplating moving to a place with a yard so I can buy a dog.  I found myself somewhat obsessive - which most people on my twitter feed would recognise.

We said goodbye today.  I couldn't really tell if he was sad as he was too invested in the doggy treat on offer.

Also, I was interviewed by a new online magazine, TENANT, on my place, my suburb and things about me in general.  Ella was lovely and we ended up having a real fun chat.

Right now I am neck deep in Melbourne Writers' Festival preparation.  I am chairing a number of panels (as discussed in this post) and that means there's a number of books to read (or re-read in some cases).

Pictures out and about:


At a recent school day a student asked if I wanted to see his treasure :)

I have a 1-year-old basset and do not regret getting her for a minute. I also have an eight-year-old golden. The drool, hair, and constant upkeep are worth the absolutely unconditional love they provide. They make any bad day better.
