I also write articles in the print media from time to time and do regular guest spots on ABC Radio 774 Victoria and Radio National Australia. And, of course, I appear regularly at gigs and events around town. That will do, hey?

Urban Retreat




Dotty and Smudgy Rabbit are brother and sister. They are approx. 3 years old and they need a new home. They are not desexed so they live in separate bunny houses. They are free and so are the houses.  You can take one or both rabbits. They live out side and have been handled a little.

Wrapping Paper Donations

If you have any spare/used wrapping paper that's been cluttering up a cupboard too long, I'd be happy to take it off your hands. Used wrapping paper would be great as I'd like to reduce the environmental impact of a project I am working on, otherwise if your kids have outgrown the roll of cutesy paper you bought last year, or you don't want to use the same christmas wrapping paper, feel free to pass that on. 
Thanks in advance Asha.
Please drop it off to Mel's house 29 Peterson Ave North Coburg.
