I got 87% in my driving test! According to Australian universities, that’s a kick-arse high distinction! Unfortunately, according to the Roads and Traffic Authority, that’s a big fat FAIL. Yup, I was 3% short of passing, dammit, and won’t be able to try again before I go away. Grrr. I have to admit, I was feeling pretty sorry for myself and – even more – guilty for failing for a couple of days before I remembered to dust myself off and breathe and smile. I think the above print from the Wheatfield is a good reminder, don’t you?
Singer Jon Boden has just launched A Folk Song A Day. Every day for one year he “will post a traditional song online to promote the art of ‘social’ (or communal) singing”. The songs are available, free, through itunes – click here to subscribe. How great is that? (via Me and My Big Mouth)
Gorgeous granny square necklaces by Victoria Mason are now on sale. Mmm …
I also really love this necklace by Novella. Why is it that I notice so many pretty things just as soon as I’m on a spending ban?
Reading 52 Suburbs makes me want to go out and explore Sydney as soon as I get back from over the seas.
Happy (warm) weekend, wherever you are!
