When reading our bedtime stories tonight, I noticed the above inscription on the title page of the book we were reading. This book belonged to me when I was a child. Given to me by my maternal grandparents, who were fondly known as ‘Franny’ and ‘Frappa’ to all of their grandchildren (named by yours truly as the oldest grandchild who could not say Granny and Grandpa properly when learning to speak).
I heard the author of this book, Juanita Phillips, being interviewed on ABC radio by Richard Stubbs yesterday and it sounded very interesting. She was trying to do it all and ended up having a very public breakdown while reading the news one night and made drastic changes to simplify her lifestyle.
