  1. I have truly enjoyed following your journey via the blog; your writing is approachable, lucid, light-handed and a pleasure to look forward to each day for the past months. Perhaps we’ll meet sometime in Vic. Cheers and bon voyage!

  2. Not true that the blog is bor-ring. I laughed four times! But perhaps that’s just end of deadline-day giddiness? V.
