Somewhat late in arrival…. here is the July List. I do apologise for not posting this little collection of reading and links earlier, but things have been rather hectic here recently with Tim and I moving around like like ships in the night, travelling to and from Sydney for farmers markets and around the countryside for work.
I’m just back from a night in Mudgee (see above) where I caught up with a few farmers for my book. Speaking of which…. the manuscript is due in just a few weeks and time is hurtling along, so I’ll sign off for now and get back to my writing. Happy reading! Sophiex
