Get the Picture!

Get the Picture!

What a joy to discover that close to where we are staying there is a new exhibition featuring 8 amazing Children’s Book Illustrators – many of these folks I have met! And it is close – only 2 1/2 hours away so guess what we did today? The driving experience wasn’t too bad, as I was a passenger […]

It’s Done

It’s Done

And so this being our last afternoon and evening in Salisbury for this trip we took a little stroll around town (well our part of the neighbourhood) on the way to dinner, before returning to complete the packing of the bags. We spied some beautiful houses and a few even more stunning flowers. I have been […]

Break Part 2 …

Break Part 2 …

Have car will drive and that is what we did. Saturday was a day for driving. A leisurely breakfast and then out onto the roads – and I am even driving on the USA side of the roads too! We stopped by the cute town of Berlin and checked out many of the antique stores, picking up a […]

Bini was snaffled into deep conversation with a […]

Christmas in NEW YORK

We are here … and as usual it has been a long long trip to get here but we just love coming back to New York. As we were so tuckered out (Bini’s phrase) we took it a little quieter on the first few days than we normally would, circulating at mid-morning and then strolling […]

A Night with the Salisbury Seagulls

A Night with the Salisbury Seagulls

Thank you Ernie Bond – Professor at Salisbury University (children’s literature and Chair of the Teacher Education Department at Salisbury University) for arranging me to chit chat with some of the pre-service teachers at the university. What fun! He asked me to talk about my favourite subject – ME! How hard is that? I spoke to […]

Cathedral and Museums

Cathedral and Museums

We often try and stay a few days in DC when we are here in the US … awesome fun. Lots of catching up with beautiful friends but also bit of touristy activity as well. This year a high priority was a visit to the National Cathedral. This is still under restoration from the earthquake so we […]
