Farewell until October

This week will be the start of our overseas holiday.
I've been quite sick with bronchitis and started to wonder if I'd be able to go!!  My work is all in hand and today we packed our cases.  The house will be looked after. A little worried we won't be warm enough but we can buy a few things if we have it wrong.
We travel to London via a stopover in Singapore. Then a night in Windsor before driving to wales.  Two weeks in Wales with a couple of side trips across to England.  After Wales we have a few days in Cornwall then fly from Bristol to Venice.  A couple of nights in London before we fly home.  I think this will be a wonderful holiday with family and friends. I will of course miss my family and friends and look forward to catching up with you all on my return.

A busy office

I read with amazement in a national newspaper yesterday, that one of Australia's leading corporations is enforcing a clear desk policy. The list of demands was quite long.   To me it seems this corporation is taking away the individuality of their employees.  Today I looked at my desk, my noticeboard and really appreciated the way our company values the individual.  I love my office and take pride in it but don't feel compelled to clear the desk every night.
I'm so glad I don't work for the giant company.  I imagine the only people who can speak up are those like me.

Cards by Kids

Punchbowl primary produce these lovely cards as a fundraiser.  I sends lots of cards to my Real estate clients and think these are perfect for the job.  All about houses!!

My favourite car in our city

I was sitting next to a couple in a cafe on Friday and the man wore a beret.  I thought to myself"bet he drives a French car"!! This little beauty was sitting outside. I smiled as I strolled to my Citro├źn c3 a modern version.  I'm mad about French cars.

Tasmanias old growth forests

Our state is torn over the proposed pulp mill which I hope and pray never gets off the ground. For me it has always been about both the saving of Tasmanias old growth forests and the effluent which will be dumped on our pristine beaches at Low Head.
