On the return

Still not quite sure why I left Melbourne... It's been a long-time coming, but reader(s), I'm back! The best way I can sum up my six-month absence is... with a list. Because, deep down, we all know we would read a lot more if everything came in list form. So! Here we go: 1) At the start of this year, I went back home to Melbourne for six weeks 2) Said six weeks was filled with perfect: summer weather, food, booze, friends and family 3) Coming back to the UK post-Beast from the East was difficult 4) Coming back to the UK was made all the more difficult because I knew I had to get... a job 5) BUT I also returned to London to see not one, but TWO manuscripts that I had written published into physical books that I could hold (and NOT sleep with clutched in my hands) 6) I managed to figure out I wanted a job in a bookshop 7) I trawled through countless job websites looking for said job in a bookshop 8) Nando's was also hiring 9) I GOT A JOB IN A BOOKS
