It's the start of the school hols and we're having a week away with friends at a place called Forster up the coast, about four and a half hours drive from Sydney. This isn't the house we're staying in - although I've heard it's nice. But this outdoor room - yes, that's right, outdoor - has all the elements of a place ideal for rest and relxation: lots of plump cushions, a large lounger on which to lie and rest one's feet, a log fire, and ample, stylish side tables for cups of tea or glasses of wine.
I aim to read Megan Morton's Home Love, finish Lionel Shriver's latest book, So Much for That, sing badly on Singstar, go for long walks, and enjoy time with family and our friends.
And when we get back, we'll get to see progress on the house!
