Swallows and a Tin/Ten Anniversary
a) I'm missing Indonesia, but the swallows gathering on the wires out the front window are quite comforting.
b) I started blogging exactly 10 years ago, on 17 Sept. 2006. If my blog and I were married, this would be our tin anniversary. That's what wikipedia says, any way, though I wonder if there's just a misspelling of ten.
c) I see my first students as an official RLF Fellow at Dundee University on Monday - wish us luck!

September - New Prize, New Job, New Memories
5 September was announcement day - 3 novels were shortlisted for the very first Scottish Teenage Book Prize - and Silver Skin was one of the them! So exciting! Find out more here - and if you live in Scotland and are aged 12-16, why not take part?
9 September was back to school - the first day of my new job as a Royal Literary Fund Fellow, as part of the Student Services at Dundee University. I start seeing students soon - looking forward to it!
And 6 September was the day I got back from Indonesia (I'd like to say it was also the day my suitcase got back from Indonesia, but at least it's arrived now!) My head is nowhere near being able to get any of the swirl of sights and sounds and smells and tastes and people into any kind of order, so I'll just bung up some photos ...
There will be more - you have been warned!
