Tuesday 12 August. A pretty normal Tuesday. I was at home.

1 of 12 – Morning coffee in the first cup I bought from ceramic artist Kim (aka Frogpondsrock).

4 of 12 – I’m going to see the musical Wicked next month. I love the Wizard of Oz, and the book Wicked (which the muscial is based on) by Gregory Maguire is one of my favourites. I’m not familiar with the musical at all, so I borrowed the CD from the library and have listened to it a couple of times* so I’ll know what to expect when I see it. I like to know musicals really well before I see them.

5 of 12 – And now for a tour of some of the local public buildings. First up the Police Station and Service Tasmania Shop, where I had a government transaction to do. I could have done it online, but I wanted to get out for a walk.

6 of 12 – The library. I had some books to return and some to pick up.

8 of 12 – Not a public building. This is the beginnings of the new supermarket on what used to be Willow Court oval.

9 of 12 – Meanwhile, this corner of the main street has been empty for several years, ever since the 100 year old building that was here burnt down.

10 of 12 – More construction. This is Laskey’s Car Park, where they are building a new bus stop.

12 of 12 – I recently bought a Midori Traveler’s Notebook. These are beautiful refillable leather notebooks that have something of a cult following. I’ve been playing about with different inserts and trying to set it up just perfectly. Also actually using it rather than having another gorgeous book that I never make a mark in because I’m scared my writing isn’t “good enough” for the book. But that’s a post for another day.

* Might be something of an underestimate.
