This time last week…

… I finished reading my book on the red roads of the western desert in W.A.

It took me about 4-5 days to read.

I haven’t read a book cover to cover in 4-5 days since David Beckhams autobiography.

True story.

I think the guys would find it a bit boring, but the girls will lap it up. Ree from The Pioneer Woman has not just written her sappy love-story, but has exposed her search for identity, purpose, and how it all flipped after getting married.

This is a really good read and I recommend it highly.

Packages in the mail

Over the last few weeks, I’ve had a few packages arrive I’m the mail.

Shoes… dresses… shoes…

and now this:

Talk about exciting!

This is the real love story of Pioneer Woman and Marlboro Man – how her life was tipped upside down when she went from a black heel-wearing slick L.A. lawyer to tractor wheels as a farmer’s wife in Oklahoma. If you don’t have a clue who these people are and what I’m talking about, you need to check out her blog.

PW’s love story has been signed to be made into a feature film and Reese Witherspoon has been asked to play Ree. I read the first 40-odd pages back last year which is available on her blog, and I couldn’t put it down. That girl has talent – she will suck you into her world and will have you laughing and crying at the same time.

This is in perfect timing for our Western Australian adventure beginning in the morning.
