more book goodness  
from the library today
+ books by sabrina ward harrison, in particular messy thrilling life and spilling open, which i have wanted to read but thought i would have to order from overseas;
+ books on candlemaking
+ another book on papercrafts
+ vogue magazines - in perfect condition too, i might add. which is surprising for a library copy of a magazine
+ feburary 2005 issue of australian house & garden magazine

and from the bookstore yesterday,
+ the career break book - of which finding made me almost squeal out aloud with excitement, for could anything be more perfect right now? all the other books i've been reading about working holidays & traveling overseas have been aimed at school-leavers - "gap years", or people studying at uni. this one is absolutely perfect - taking time out from working full time, the benefits & repercussions of doing so. it's only new this month, i hadn't even heard of it or seen it on the website, so it absolutely made my day to find that copy on the shelves.

happiness found in pages. inspiration found in pictures, euphoria found in words, hope found between cardstock covers & laminate. when i go back to the uk, i better find a place somewhere near a library or a bookstore. i mean it.

i am so in love with this song right now; it's so beautiful, it steals my breath away.

also, i've finished filling zine orders from this week {thankyou so much, lovelies}; i'll be posting out the last few tomorrow but most went out today or friday. so if you would still like to order {please ?}, find the info here ? i can send it out straight away since i'm all up to date.

tomorrow at work i will be a good girl and do nothing BUT work. i think i'm dreadfully behind and john comes back from leave on tuesday, and i was meant to keep him up to date. whoops. i WILL be good. really.

i wish i had a zoom on this digicam so that you could see the flakes. this is the view from my balcony - those specks off in the distance are geese feeding on who knows what. silly birds don't seem to realize it's long past time to fly south for the winter. just beyond them is the lake that i mentioned in my first letter to you!!

have a wonderful week! <3

I was wondering if you got my letter that I wrote a while ago, I mentioned there that I'd be interested in your zine? (it was before you finished your second one, now I'd like them both) I hope the letter didn't get lost on the way. My address has changed, now, as well - should I e-mail it to you?
