I've had a busy start to the school term once again, but this time in a good way.  I completed my Visitor Services volunteer training with Heide Museum of Modern Art in Bulleen yesterday so you will soon see me there once a fortnight if you're ever visiting.  It's been fantastic to meet a community of like-minded people who've come from all over Melbourne, and who are united in their love of Heide and its story and I'm looking forward to being somewhere so inspiring on a regular basis.

I've also picked up some work with a second client who will be launching their online business in the coming months - that's also been a lot of fun and I will reveal all once their website is officially launched on 1 June.

We're now more than halfway through Autumn with winter on its way and you may be spending a bit more time indoors.  The Spanish Film Festival starts today in Melbourne and one of the participating cinemas is the Westgarth in Northcote.  If you love all things Spanish, there is a second Casa Iberica Spanish delicatessen in Fulham Road, Alphington.  Speaking of Alphington, it's a shame that Seven Seeds is no longer looking at a cafe location there as their application for a coffee roastery was recently knocked back.

On a final note, the Banyule Homestead at 60 Buckingham Drive is once again listed for sale and it is a great pity that it's no longer in the hands of the state government or able to be turned into a satellite art gallery or museum.  It's in a tricky location as well surrounded by residential real estate, but I am hoping someone with a vision and deep pockets buys it, restores it in keeping with its heritage, and opens it to the public to enjoy in some capacity.  It's being auctioned on 16 May and if you are heading up Beverley Road, watch out for the ducks!  I had to stop for them the other day, along with a number of other drivers, and wait for them to cross the road.  I've also seen foxes at night and a poor dead kangaroo on the nature strip in front of the Billabong@Banyule cafe over the summer.
