Scored a carton of John Boston pale ale to review for Social Soup just in time for Australia Day! I’m told it went down really well on the hotter than expected day we had.

Have you heard about the AIME Mentoring project? AIME provides a dynamic educational Program that gives Indigenous high school students the skills, opportunities, belief and confidence to finish school at the same rate as their peers. AIME has proven to dramatically improve the chances of Indigenous kids finishing school. AIME also connects students with post Year 12 opportunities, including further education and employment.

And so we bought the tshirts!

Canberra's Handmade Christmas Market

Ventured out to the Handmade Markets this morning, to have a wander and get some Xmas shopping done!

Hot day – wouldn’t want to be in the shed later this afternoon. Ugh. Got a yummy cold chai from the Real Chai stand free when I bought some tea from them, that cooled me off and kept me going a while longer!

Handmade Markets

Ran into Jen from Red Instead (recently relaunched to focus on her passions for print, web design and photography)…running around helping here and there. Also saw (or was seen by) Julia helping at another friends stall. Also was able to scab a lift home from a workmate and her family (I walked there this morning!)

Chin Chilla Creations
Created for You (I think I’m going to end up with a very large collection of button earrings if I keep visiting her stall!)
Real Chai
Wombat Heights Orchard
