The Spring real estate market is well and truly underway and these houses in Lower Plenty have both caught my eye.  One is a grand old dame and a bit of a classic at 53 – 55 Rosehill Road while the other one at 37 Panorama Avenue has been modernised and styled by someone with a great eye.  Lower Plenty is a bit of a hidden secret in Banyule – country meets city and if you’re someone who likes being surrounded by a sea of green, then it may be the place for you.  As much as I like it, it’s not close to public transport or shops but I suspect that’s the reason many people do like it – for its relative remoteness, privacy and seclusion on big blocks of land.

It’s been a long week for me organising and promoting both my Rudd on the PM Years book launch next Wednesday night at The Sofitel and the Bold Thinking Series Is democracy broken? event next Thursday night at the State Library Theatrette.  You’re about to see a whole lot of mainstream publicity for the Rudd event but I suspect it’s had an impact on my other event the following night.  An ex-Prime Minister is a hard act to follow!  Either way, I’m looking forward to both events for different reasons.

I’ve got a number of people I know getting married before the end of the year and sadly, weddings are now the only events I have where there is dancing!  While my clubbing days may be behind me (’90s house music still rocks), Boogie Nights Dance adult dance classes in Carlton has caught my eye – what a fabulous excuse to go out and get on down for those of us no longer in our late teens and early twenties.  Nothing like tearing it up on the dance floor…have a great weekend.
