My First Post

Well here I go, embarking on a brand new blog.

In this blog I am planning to make my main focus my efforts at getting the manuscript of my first novel “Veiled in Shadows” published.

Along the way I will probably also talk about other stuff that interests me.

I might talk about stuff including, in no particular order (except the first, which should come first):

My Family

History (in general, but in particular military history with a focus on WWII)

Bush Walking (I think those from much of the rest of the world call this pursuit Hiking)

Photography (I take a lot of photos, some of which come out, but most are very bad)

Wildlife (a lot of my photos are of this)

Here is an example;

This little fellow is a Gang Gang cockatoo that I photographed in southern NSW.

Archaeology (my other half complained that I came back from Europe with 100s of photos of what she disparagingly calls rocks and hardly any of people).

Like this one of Mile Castle 37 on Hadrian’s wall

Yes they might be rocks. But I think they are nice ones!

Travel (when I can afford it) see above

Reading (I read a lot, almost anything but mostly history, biology or a wide range of fiction).

My latest read is:

I just Wish Wish Wish I had more time to read

So that is what I aim to do with my blog.

But then again, knowing me, I am just as likely to ramble about anything that comes to mind.

Thank you for commenting on my blog! It does look like we have some common interests. I have my bachelor's degree in history and always wanted to be an archaeologist. And I love photography too. You have a great blog! I'm looking forward to your future posts :)
