Hi All. As you might guess from the heading, I'm from Australia - a little country town in Victoria, which is the southernmost mainland state on the eastern side. I'm a minister, writer and independent publisher, and currently work part time as Funding Manager for a local charity (which means I spend my time writing grant applications.) When I'm not doing any of those things, I like to knit, do cross-stitch, read, swim and cook. I'm also trying (so far unsuccessfully) to turn my brown thumbs into green fingers. I'm just a teeeny weeeny bit addicted to building web sites - 6 currently active, 1 in progress and 2 in planning. My two adult sons live in different states, so I don't get to see them or my five grandchildren (ages 23 down to 12) nearly as often as I would like. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and having some fun on this site.
