Tonight is my last night in the May Gibbs apartment here in Adelaide. I’ve had a wonderful time, with the mix of writing, visiting and socially.

I’m thrilled that I managed to complete the second draft of my novel while I was here . I finished this morning and will now let it sit for a little while before looking again.

I’m packing up books and clothes and will leave in the morning. I’m very keen to get home to my boys but am also sad that this time is at an end.

Thank you May Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust. To Nan, Jo, Janeen, Ian and Mary.
