a short absence from the Now and Then desk

Just a quick note to regular readers that I’m going to be away from this blog for a little while as I travel west on a long road trip across the Australian continent.

I’ve been busy composing and scheduling short and sweet posts to appear on a reasonably regular basis until my return to the desk at the end of September. Please enjoy them in my absence.

If you’re interested in hearing how the road trip is going, pop over here to Sentio where (internet coverage allowing) I hope to be writing and posting as and when I can.

Taking the housework with you on holidays

Caravan traveling as a recreational pursuit in Australia is documented in this post from the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.

The Australian Women’s Weekly – 1 May 1937 – do you think that’s a special holiday apron?
