I've caught up on some study - I took the opportunity of a four hour train trip to Albury and back to read up. I am so pleased that I have chosen autoethnography as a method for my research, as it just fits with the purpose of my blog. I am feeling more confident about my thesis now.
On the train trip to Albury, I sat across from two little girls (aged three and five) and their mum. The girls were gorgeous - auburn hair and dimpled smiles. The youngest girl was very talkative, and she asked me what was on my face. I told her that I was born this way and sometimes it gets sore and that I need cream. She told me that her mum uses cream too, and when she gets "that old", pointing to me, she will need to use cream too. I used my phone to send an email to an academic I'd met at the blogging conference pre drinks two weeks ago. The three year old came over to me, put her chocolatey hands on my knee, and asked "are you sending an email to the Easter Bunny?" So. Cute.
The Easter Bunny left me a packet of Lindt gold bunnies. I ate one with some Gundowring lime icecream. Delicious.
Finally, the last bit of accommodation for my trip has been booked - a hotel in Los Angeles. Not long until I leave now.
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend, and are well rested for the week ahead :)
