Thanksgiving

In Melbourne there are no pumpkin pies, no strange marshmallow confections masquerading as savoury dishes, no decorative gourds or paper turkeys. But even so, there is a lot to be thankful for:

  1. Nectarines are in season. Thank you, world.
  2. My coffee this morning was really good. Thank you, St Ali. 
  3. Bit by bit, I'm organising my meetings with lovely and generous New York editors. Thank you, lovely and generous New York editors!
  4. Also, today is my birthday, and my partner, Tom, gave me a puffy jacket to wear in New York when it is freezing cold. This means I am really going. You can't have a puffy jacket and not go to New York. It's definitely on. Thank you, Tom.
