Day 2838 - What is everyone thinking about right now?

What's on your mind?

This week is a big week for me.  It's the week I've decided to make stuff happen.

With around 7 major projects on the go that I'm personally managing, from author stuff, to cheerleading, to soccer, to my school reunion, the kids magazine, mumager duties and my daughter's 18th, there's a lot to keep me awake at night.

And I guess the stuff on my mind goes beyond the projects and associated tasks to the big ticket items that require some major decisions.  A complete change in direction.  And it starts with a trip to Sydney today to chat to a publisher and to work out where Miss 17 is going to live.

Day 2837 - What's the one thing you couldn't live without?

Is there one thing you need in your life that helps you to be you?

No doubt in your lifetime you've heard the question: "What is the one thing you'd take with you to a deserted island".  It's a standard question to encourage people to think about what's truly important to them.  In fact, it's listed as one of the best "left of centre" questions to ask at interview, designed to test a person's resourcefulness and imagination.

I'd like to take the question one step further, while putting the whole "deserted island" thing to the side.

What is the one thing you need in your life that helps you be you?

Day 2835 - The Lovin Life Linky - Golden Edition

Happy Golden Wedding Anniversary!

Two parents, an only child and the resulting extension of their union.
This week we celebrated my parent's golden wedding anniversary by hiring a house at Noosa and getting decked out in white and gold.

Day 2834 - Wellness Wednesday - The Noosa Beach to Hell's Gate Walk

Welcome to Part Two of the Scenic Walk Series

For some reason I find coastal getaways very motivating from a health and fitness point of view.  I dream of fresh fruits, sensational salads, yummy yoghurt and wondrous walks.

Day 2833 - Author stuff: Creating characters that come to life

Getting inside somebody else's skin

On Sunday I joined my bloggy pals Deb (Debbish) and Jo (And Anyways) at the "Celebration of Books" in Maleny, Queensland.  Their attendance was intentional and well planned, whereas I crashed their party opportunistically as I just happened to be on the Sunshine Coast on holidays.

We attended the "talking writing" session with authors Michael Robotham, Melissa Ashley and Roanna Gonsalves.

Day 2832 - Getting up close and personal with the animals at Australia Zoo

Have you been to Australia Zoo?

A visit to Australia Zoo is a must for anyone travelling to the Sunshine Coast area of Queensland.  Especially if you have children.

We've done it a few times over the last 10 years and it's wonderful to see its growth and the conservation advances each time we visit.

Day 2828 - The Lovin Life Linky - Escape Edition

We've headed in another direction ...

Every winter we try our best to escape the Canberra cold.  Sometimes we go to the extreme heat (like Vegas or Hawaii) and other times we just head to the south coast or to Queensland.

Day 2827 - Wellness Wednesday - Have you done your boobie check?

Let's talk about breasts

I've been reading Love Your Sister and have spent a good part of my reading in tears. Not because I'm sad, but because I'm touched.
