I haven’t been able to stop and draw breath for the last couple of months, let alone update this site. Chris and I had to unexpectedly move house, and I’ve been working like a dog with LP editing. Actually, considering my dog’s life involves being cuddled, having impromptu songs composed in his honour on the ukulele…

… and licking the dregs out of ice-cream bowls and sniffing butts down at the park, that’s hardly an appropriate analogy.

We’ve moved from Clifton Hill, which is apparently number 2 or so in the ‘Melbourne’s most liveable suburbs’ lists, and is populated mainly with well-off white left-leaning folk (think Cultural Studies lecturers), to Brunswick West, which is about number 135 on the same list, and is decidedly more multicultural and working class. The rent’s a lot cheaper, the take-away pizza is both cheaper and tastier (and available on every street corner), the Mediterranean Wholesalers and Coburg Trash and Treasure are nearby … sounds pretty liveable to me.

I’ll update a bit over the next couple of days, with links to lots of Women of the Gobi review-y goodness. But for now, here I am with the damned donkey.
