When I said 'we're done' I didn't mean for a whole month. But then life tripped me up.
First there was the weekend I was an unorganiser at UnConference Canberra.
Then I started working on the May issue of The tiny Times which, as usual, sucked up my spare time.
And when I rang to let Mum know, she told me that Dad was in hospital. So I made an unexpected trip to New Zealand to help them out.
While I was there I did manage to do some mini-related things with a friend, including a trip to the Blue Star Kiwi stall at the Wellington Underground Markets, and a visit to The Weta Cave, where we did a behind-the-scenes tour of the sets for the new Thunderbirds TV show
(which was quite frustrating as absolutely no photos were allowed. And there was much in the way of miniatures to be drooled over: including the Tracy Island headquarters in 1/12 scale. For a wee look you can check out this sneak peek video).
We also made time to get up to some mischief of the street-art variety...
Then, two days after I got back, I was off again: to The Sydney Miniature and Dollhouse Show.
I have lots of photos to share, but they'll have to wait for another post.
I'm pleased to say there were miniature acquisitions along the way. A friend went on holiday to Japan and returned with a range of miniatures for me:
And I picked up a few things at the Blue Star Kiwi stall, including a Clarice-Cliff-like tea setand some tiny cupcakes iced like sheep: the perfect souvenir.
I'm just hoping life decides to settle down this month. I need time to catch my breath.
