My mate Muriel in my garden.
This book was small in pages but big in heart ♥️
It is the story of a good, kind man in Ireland who doesn‘t just talk the talk but actually walks the walk. The writing is beautiful, I could see the snow covered town and the yellow lights in the windows.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Thank you @Freespirit for sending me this book as part of our #Aussiesecretsanta swap.

Freespirit Glad you enjoyed it!!! 4w
Rissreads @Soubhiville Yes Muriel is a wild bird that I feed sometimes. She comes when I call her name, but she never gets closer to me than about 1 meter. She is an Australian magpie. She brings me such joy! 4w
Soubhiville I love that! I see crows and think of all the stories I‘ve heard of people becoming friends with them. Tell her hello for me 😁 4w
Reggie Muriel is pretty cool! 4w
Chelsea.Poole Loving Muriel! Great photo 😊 4w

Got some #audiojournaling done today,finally! I only just got my new journals, auspost is really doing a great job lately.Not.😠At least they‘re here now.Do you like my new journal? Special edition with my name on the cover. I love it!Totally worth the extra money. I‘ve been meaning to read the tagged book for years, finally getting to it for the 40th anniversary of the start of the AIDS epidemic.So infuriating and so so sad🏳️‍🌈🫶 #JumpStart2023

julesG 😍😍😍 Love all the supplies. (Post is slow here, too. Seems they went into hibernation on Boxing Day.) 4w
Larkken Your supplies are inspirational! I‘m using the same ones from last couple years until they run out or I can find a place for new ones 😂🤩 4w
Clwojick Ahhhh! I love all the stationary! 😍 I‘ve considered getting my 1817s titled as well, but I haven‘t pulled the trigger yet. After seeing yours, I might have to though! 💖 4w

Lizpixie @julesG thank you! I‘m still waiting on a #jolabokaflodswap & my #aussiesecretsanta packages! 4w
Lizpixie @Larkken I‘m glad to inspirate. I have a huge tub full of more art supplies as well, when I did the #greatlibrarycleanof2022 my daughter went to Kmart & bought me ten 50litre tubs and we spent two weeks sorting everything. Now I have them stacked & labeled in their own spot in my library.👍 (edited) 4w
Lizpixie @Clwojick I‘m so happy with my journal! They brought the Bullet Journal special edition in black & this blush pink this year. Not much of a choice, I would‘ve preferred a yellow but🤷🏻‍♀️Where I bought it had the option of whatever you wanted on it in foil(gold,rose or silver)or colour. I think the rose on the blush pink turned out nice. I was gonna go with Lizpixie!🤓 4w
Clwojick You should have!!!! 💖 4w

Oh Sharni! You are simply the nicest person I‘ve yet to meet. Thank you so much for the replacement package for the #AussieSecretSanta swap. I‘ve been dying to get my hands on a hard copy of Surrender & the #ozfoction book looks very intriguing. The bookmark is gorgeous & I can‘t wait to dig in to that chocolate(unfortunately it‘s still breakfast time here). I‘ll let you know the minute my original package shows up(if it does🤷🏻‍♀️)

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I‘ve still got my fingers crossed that Australia Post comes good on all your missing parcels! Let me know how the chocolate is (hopefully it survived the heat) I‘m so intrigued by that brand and their mission. Enjoy your books 😊 1mo
Lizpixie @thegirlwiththelibrarybag the chocolate is amazing! It‘s very rich, kinda halfway between milk & dark & the pretzel chunks work well👍👍 1mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Lizpixie, that does sound good - I might treat myself to a block next time I‘m in the fruit shop 😋 1mo

Book two from my #aussiesecretsanta package finished ✅. Thanks @Lizpixie . Thought I‘d never heard of this book, but then as I started reading, realised I had either read it or seen the movie years ago…🤔. Beautiful 🥰🙏

Lizpixie Glad you enjoyed it lovely!❤️ 4w

For the last several years, I‘ve started the new year with this book. It is such a celebration of friendship, filled with humor and just a bit of real life situations (rationing, for example). And, inevitably, I‘m always crying by the end. A wonderful book that shows books can connect people, even across oceans. So much like Litsy!! #192025 #1970

MaGoose I've watched the movie (with Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins) a few times (I love it). But I've never read the book. I'll pick up the movie again from the library and put the book on my wish list. 1mo
Librarybelle @MaGoose I really need to see the movie! 1mo
MaGoose @Librarybelle Yes! Watch it. You'll like it, I think. 1mo

Book one from my #aussiesecretsanta haul done ☑️. I‘d been desperate to get my hands on this one. I dove in, quickly adjusting and suspending disbelief. As the cover says, “a vibrant and original novel”. A great holiday read. I loved it 😍. Thank you @Lizpixie 🙏.

CarolynM It‘s a good one🙂 1mo
