Is it just me - or is this just too weird..?
So, after enjoying a half-strength soy latte and a huge chocolate muffin (couldn’t decide to be healthy or not today) I said goodbye to my friends and headed off to the car park….
….I didn’t expect to trip over a super-long, hairy worm on the way….
On further inspection, it turned out to be about 300 caterpillars!
Caught in weird gravitational pull... Hayley, Mix FM roadie and me.
I know… when I looked back at my blog I could hardly believe it myself…
FIVE months have passed since I last sat down and wrote a post
Where have I been? What on earth could have kept me away from the keyboard of sanity that I had kept within arms reach for so many years?
Had I been abducted? Was I simply being lazy? Or was I trapped under something heavy and desperately trying to reach the laptop…?
Nope, it was just because of one word…
After a month of mayhem, I am finally getting a handle on my new routine. With three children starting different schools; writing unscheduled articles for magazines; filming youtube clips (coming soon to this channel!) and organising other work commitments – my days have been somewhat disorganised…
…and I loathe disorganisation!
But today I felt like I had finally got everything back on an even keel – so this morning I decided to make time to throw on some training shoes and get back into doing some exercise, as it seems my bottom has been widening by the hour.
Today I celebrated my first Australia Day as an Aussie…. and I felt immensely proud to raise up the Australian flag (ok – it was a cheap hand-held one from the Dollar Tree… and it was actually attached to my esky – not raised up high on a pole) BUT the point is, I felt pretty darn ‘true blue’ as I knocked back the amber nectar with my nearest and dearest on the beach.
'Flying the Flag'
Remember a few weeks ago when I was chatting to a local surf lifesaver about rips… while watching my son being battered about by the waves…?
Well, since then a top bloke called Dr. Rob Brander (a surf scientist) has steered me in the direction of his website, called (would you believe) “The Science of the Surf” … (and I thought I was being clever thinking of that blog title)
So please take a look at his fantastic short video, and stay really safe!
“Australians all let us rejoice”
Yep, we certainly did rejoice!
As of last week, our family became Australian Citizens…. and what a fantastic day it was.
The Wealthy Author by Debbie Jenkins and Joe Gregory has been causing a stir
amongst publishers and non-fiction authors because of it’s radical, and undeniably effective, approach to winning at the publishing game.
