Small town, warm welcome

Jan, me and Bob from Foster's Little Bookshop

GW and I had a fantastic time in Foster visiting the wonderful Foster’s Little Bookshop. A very big thank you to Jan and Bob for organising the evening. Graeme from Windy Ridge Winery shared his award winning wines and Catherine cooked up delicious treats.

After the chat Jan and Bob took us to the local Golf Club for dinner with some of the other guests. The conversation ranged across a hundred topics and there was even another bee-keeper there!

The temperature hovered around a ten degrees so it felt like we were back in England, especially when we came home to Litchfield Lodge to find a toasty warm sitting room, a decanter of port and some yummy chocolates.

Saturday morning, Margareta Osborn made the drive from her home town a couple of hours away with her husband and daughter to catch up for a quick chat. I was only sorry we couldn’t stay longer. It’s always such a delight to chat to another author. Margareta is doing the author chat next Friday night – 20th July so if you’re in the area drop in!

Back to work for me today but the warm welcome from Foster will linger. Thank you!

  1. Looks like the big G is getting ready for the life of the husband of a famous author! How lovely and thoughtful of the owner’s of the lodge to provide such a warm welcome home.

    Agnes Falls definitely looks like a beautiful place to kick back with the iPad, appropriate drink on one side, beloved other half on the other and let the words flow. 🙂

  2. It was lovely Catherine and do good to catch up with Margareta as well. The falls were very pretty although I was teetering along in completely inappropriate footwear!
    Will have to go back again and spend more time exploring 🙂

  3. Lol Brenda, I confused quite a few people with that… Sorry… Will be down your way quite soon! I start holidays at the end of the week so I can visit all these wonderful libraries and chat to readers! Looking forward to it!

  4. I made the same error, Brenda. I kept thinking Forster in NSW and then blinked when I read that Margareta only drove a couple of hours to get there. Forster is definitely a bit further than that from Gippsland!

    Sounds like you were very well looked after, Helene. Lovely photos.

  5. Sounds like you had a lovely time Helene! My heart skipped a beat when you mentioned earlier about going to Foster….we have Forster close to us and I thought for a second you’d made a typo 😉

    It’s getting close to when you’ll be here at our library too 🙂 Can’t wait!! I love the photo of Agnes Falls as well, it’s gorgeous!
