Here’s a collection of books I’m trying to get through. I love reading but don’t get a lot of time. This weekend, however, I’ve been able to relax and get through most of ‘Bones of the lost’ by Kathy Reichs.

I also try to participate in the fmsphotoaday challenge on a blog by Fatmumslim, an Aussie blogger whose participants are from all over the world.


Fat Mum Slim’s Photo a Day


Each month I have great intentions of taking the photo of the day. Normally I lose interest after the first week or at about the half way point of each month. I decided to share the photos I took during the first week. I try to think outside the box but sometimes that can be a little difficult.

January 1. Today (Every New Year’s Day I go to a nursery to buy some plants for my garden)

January 2. Something new (iphone app fridge magnets. A Christmas present from a friend)

January 3. Heart (this was chosen as a photo idea to support a heart charity. Bearing this in mind I decided to find a recipe to cook that night from the Heart Foundation website)

January 4. The view from here (this was an extremely hot day in Melbourne so the only view I got was of my desk then my darkened lounge room. I decided to share a picture of some ice cream I ate at work that day)

January 5. Movement (fans walking to AAMI Park to watch Melbourne Victory)

January 6. Mine (some of the memorabilia I collected after the Swans AFL Grand Final win in September)

January 7. Street (my very quiet street, devoid of any playing children)

Full details of the challenge can be found at If you would like to join you can post your photos in your blog, on the FMS Facebook page or on twitter using the tag #FMSphotoaday.
