Lovin' Life is as easy as ABC ...

  1. Lucky you getting to Degas - I'm hopefully sneaking down for Hockney...but will miss Degas...

  2. What a week...and what a wonderful list. Enjoy the ZZZZZ part. And isn't book week the best? I am not saying it's the 'dressing up' part because not all people like that but I do like we get to devote MORE time to BOOKS and READING.

    1. As a parent the whole getting dressed up thing can be a bit of a pain. But I can honestly say that seeing my characters come to life like that is one of the greatest things I've experienced as an author. Sure, I love celebrating books in general, but I really REALLY love that children get to jump inside the books during Book Week and then jump back out again as their favourite characters. Bringing books to life ...

  3. What a great post Leanne...lots to be grateful for there this week. And how good is Melbourne!

    1. Melbourne is lovely. The buildings, the art, the shopping ...

  4. What a week!! I am very jealous!
    Ps- my post isn't what I'm loving but I'm loving that it's actually opened a few minds so I hope it's okay to link up :)

  5. I'm with Amy... Very jealous of your week but I'm particularly glad the author talk went well and loved seeing the Cheer Chick Charlies you shared on Instagram etc.

    1. Thanks Deb. A very exciting week when you get to see so many gorgeous children embracing the series.

  6. Sounds like you have been busy! I have been enjoying quiet time on a farm, oh so relaxing.

  7. The trip to Melb looks good. I could use some time on a high floor looking out over the city.

    1. Yep. It's great to get on top of the world from time to time and see how small and insignificant our daily first world "issues" really are ...

  8. I'm so looking forward to when my children are able to participate in Book Week!

    1. So much fun! Unless you find out at short notice then PANIC!!

  9. Sorry I'm so late this week, Leanne!

    Love your book week ABC!
