We have now moved back to Zenas Aunty Gails and Uncle Rogers place in Frenchs Forest. Just 30 minutes walk from where I work, and a bus into the city for Zena. Its real nice of Gail & Roger letting us do this.
Moving back allows us to sort out what we need, and what we don't. Zena has already done a bit of a sort out. I need to sort out my things as well, before I courier back my snowboard bag to the UK with all my spare stuff.. Its going to be a issue though. Ten months away, and you soon accumulate rubbish.
For instance all my books.. What am I going to do with them?? How I am actually sorting this out is with BookCrossing. What is BookCrossing?
bookcrossing n. the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise.
I had gone and bought about 10 fiction titles from Vinnies a couple of months ago. I finsihed them all by Friday. (I know.. I read too quickly.. Some people tell me I never took it all in. Believe me, if I am reading for pleasure then I did...) So I labelled them all up and dropped them all off on benches along Manly Sea-front. Then I went to the shops.... On my way home, I actually watched one kid about 15, read the back of one of my favourite books [Bryce Courtenay - The Power of One], realise its free and then put it in his bag!!
