 I've had a quiet little Sunday reading Maggie Alderson's Everything Changes but You and I am luffing it sick.
 Here I am am with Maggie if you need a visual.
It's taking my mind off the storm that's raging outside. If we lose power, I will be very sad. Fingers and Toes there's not going to be any Hail.
Uh oh, I can hear Hail. Dammit. My PLANTS!


  1. Jealous. Of you reading / meeting Maggie.
    I LOVE her! And am gutted every week when I rediscover that she no longer does a 'style notes' column for The Age here in Melbourne.
    Have you read 'shoe money' or 'handbag heaven'? Her best work I reckon.

    1. Hi Elise, know what you mean re Maggies column in The Age but you can catch up with her latest offerings on a UK site called High50. She does a column once a week generally under the Style section. It is great. Her column is generally published on a Tuesday.
      Cheers Cindy.

    2. Hi again Elise - just thought of more info for you re Maggie's old Age column - did you know that it is now printed in the M magazine section of the Age on a Sunday? Can you tell that I am a bit of a Maggie stalker??

  2. That storm was sure something, lucky no hail here.Hope all ok on your side of town.
    Must check out if Maggie Alderson's book can be downloaded to a kindle. Love her books, and loving my kindle!

  3. Hope the plants survive, keep safe. I've just been watching the news, dreadful storms.

  4. Dear FF I hope you and the Fuschiadome and all who dwell in her are weathering the storm okay. The pictures look terrible on the ABC news tonight. I love Maggie Alderson. It was through her weekly article in the Sunday Age that I came to your blog. How good was that? thinking of you, LJD

  5. Are you still in one piece? sounds ferocious up there in the Sunshine state

  6. Dear FF,
    I love Maggie and love sick that you have met her.
    Fingers and toes are crossed here that civility maintains and you are spared any major issues.
    Mother Nature can be very ferocious cant she.
    I'm a big scaredy cat in bad weather. And don't get me started on lightening. I am spooked senseless.
    I'm sending all my best wishes for the FF family and home being safe.

  7. Dear FF

    Hope all is well with you and yours - and the garden! It looked very scary on the news!

    Met Maggie when she gave her book launch in Canberra recently (she was wearing same dress but different necklace). Such a nice woman and so interesting and generous in her discussion of how she weaves her characters and stories. For struggling writers it was a brilliant talk - her methods are worth adopting. Also bought her latest but haven't had time yet - I'm reading two on the trot (one for a book club next week). Glad you're enjoying it so much - look forward to starting soon. Best wishes, Pamela

  8. I really want to read that book - being an expat and all - but it's not available here (on anyway). May have to put it on my Christmas list for the family.

    Hopefully the FF garden survived the hail and wind. I heard the lightning was unprecedented (and that's from my nearly 75 year old dad).


  9. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. Thank
