Last minute rushing around

One more working day to go!  But I think I'm under control!  I spent today rushing around loading up the car with things to take down to the venue for New Year's Eve.  This makes life a lot easier for me on the day and saves me doing it all in the predicted 40 degree …

So much to do!

There are only four more sleeps until I head off to my first Romance Writers of Australia conference.  I am beyond excited but between now and when I leave on Thursday I have soooo much to do. So let's kill two birds with one stone shall we - a chance to get things down in a list doubles up …

Pinterest saves the day – YAY!

So it's Miss A's first birthday on Thursday. Can you even believe it!?? Yesterday I realised that I really needed to get my skates on so that I can get organised for the party that I have invited many many people to this Sunday! One of the things that I've realised now that I have two …

Feeling all the feelings

Yep, this shit is getting real!  All day I've been oscillating between excitement and sadness as I count down the days in this last week.  I've been doing a little bit of policy writing over the past three weeks which has been motivating and exciting (well, as much as policy writing can ever be exciting).  But …

Well, they do say that time flies when you're having fun and I have to confess, it's been a fun ride so far.  And whilst I'm still finding …

Fail to plan, plan to fail

As you may have already noticed, unlike Winston Churchill, I’m not much of a planner nor have I ever been one for setting goals and so far, I've not had any major regrets.  But, whilst there is no question that I subscribe to the just wing it approach to life, I also concede that this year is different. …

The gap between intent and action

EEK! What started as an idea to talk about my colourful new blog title header and how it came to be, has now got the potential to become a PhD thesis!  So I'm going to make a concerted effort to rein in my thoughts on this one... if that is at all possible!  I had intended …
