Ruby just can't stop travelling. Her latest big adventure
was to Sicily in Italy. Check out some of her photos below. Can you spot her? She loved seeing
the ancient temples, wonderful old towns and the lush countryside. Ruby even
went to the snow on Mount Etna! She met lots of new friends and tasted some
really exciting food. Her taste for adventures all over the world just never
stops. Where in the world is she off to next?
In May 2014 Ruby and I visited the staff and students at St
Therese Primary in Torquay. We had a wonderful day. The students presented me
with a book called "Amazing Animals". The students had filled it with
beautiful drawings and stories of their favourite animals. Such imagination!
Ruby now has lots of good ideas of friends and places to visit on her next
After many attempts, Ruby will finally be having her own stall at the Brunswick Flea market on Sunday the 13th of April. Meet the author and pick up your own signed copy of Ruby for $15. The market will be at 7 Dawson street, Brunswick, 3056. It is directly opposite the Brunswick Baths. Moya will be there doing the occasional coffee runs and so will Barney, our pooch, showing off his very own spot!
On Saturday 21 February I witnessed the amazing efforts
of everyone involved in the annual MS 24 Hour Megaswim at the Fitzroy Pool in
Melbourne. It was a wonderful
event with teams doing laps, children running about and the occasional penguin,
tiger and superhero wandering through hoping to win the best costume prize. I was asked to attend by the organisers to share my
story and express my appreciation to everyone involved. Funds raised support
the MS 'Go for Gold' scholarships. As a winner in 2012 I thought it important
to demonstrate just what all their hard work and swimming produces, and ‘Ruby’
is a tangible outcome. It was a truly uplifting event full of goodwill and a
humbling example of the generosity of all participants. Moy and I also grabbed the opportunity to promote ‘Ruby’
and sold 35 copies! It was terrific to see adults and children alike flipping
through the pages and walking around with a book under their arms! See and hear Sean talking about Ruby on the day. http://youtu.be/ksZ423NJbDY
