Moving day is just around the corner! We’re all ready and we’re all excited!
In other exciting news, I wrapped up 10 years with Education on Friday. The time is right for me to embark on a career change which includes studying a Bachelor of Speech Pathology. It’s a pathway I wish I’d always taken so after ‘career advising’ high school students for so long, I sat down and career advised myself. This will be my third degree and I’m looking forward to returning to study – I’ve always loved learning.
Just wanted to share this picture taken by a friend of mine here, Christine, of our beautiful river. Looking at this makes me feel fortunate to live in such a beautiful region of Queensland.
Joke of the week:
Me. I am this week’s joke with my livestream blooper from my son’s football game last Sunday. And by livestream I mean actually into the football Facebook group where other parents were watching. 😂 Thanks to my son who kindly clipped this blooper so that he and his brother could watch it anytime they liked!
The Stella Prize Shortlist:
I’m so pleased that I’ve read half the shortlist long before the titles were even listed. I’ve read Fathoms, Stone Sky Gold Mountain, and The Bass Rock. I enjoyed all three but I have my secret hopes on The Bass Rock. For many reasons, this remains a favourite book of mine and it tells an important story in a clever way.
The birds in my backyard:
It’s cockatoo central station at my place each afternoon but since the rain stopped they’ve stepped it up, so many flocking each afternoon. I love them, despite their noise, they really are such lively characters.
What I’ve been reading:
Until next week… 😊☕📚🏡
