Why, hello again Friday…
Bo and I are in Perth this cold wintery Friday. We’ve had a fun week (with no more school work!) and I’m finding my groove more and more. I’ve made some final decisions about my relationship (I know, I know) and taken the necessary steps to move forwards. I’ve applied for an actual job, whihc is pretty intense, seeing as I’ve been working solely for myself for the past five years… but I’m looking for reasons to put down roots, and I was forwarded an interesting job by a psychiatrist (the world works in mysterious ways) so I’m applying. It’s a job that actually uses my training and education, which is a bit weird for me, because whilst I use what I’ve learned in my every day life I have never, not once, been employed in my industry of choice. We’ll see. I’ve put it out there and I’m just seeing where the world takes us.
In the past week a whole lot of things have turned around. One of my articles was published on a very popular national website here in Australia so that’s brought a bit of new interest and some lovely new readers to the blog, which is always fun. New people bring new inspiration and new conversations and opinions, which is all fabulous for all of us.
We have an exciting overseas adventure coming up that was offered by my beautiful grandfather out of the blue. So a seemingly empty rest-of-the-year has now been filled with work conferences and potential jobs and overseas adventures and lots and lots of good stuff. I’m excited. What do you have planned for the rest of 2013? Are you as shocked as I am that we are HALF WAY THROUGH THE YEAR ALREADY?
I’m working on the very beginnings of what I’m hoping is going to be a really exciting collaborative project. But to get it off the ground I need YOUR help. Do you know someone who is living a less than ordinary life? Something out of the box? Is it you?! Is it a blog you read? Is it your next door neighbour? I’d love it if you know (or know of) someone who is living an uncommon life to nominate them to be a part of an exciting project. The basis of the project is to celebrate life out-of-the-box… Do you know someone who fits the bill? You can comment here and let me know or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next week the blog might be down for a day or two as I install a whole new design which I’ve very excited about. So if you come to find us and we aren’t here… don’t worry, we’ll be back! Hopefully the install and changes will be made quickly and most of you won’t even know it is happening.
The winner of the winter warmer give-away has been announced. Go and check out that post to see if it was you! Happy weekend friends! Hope yours is as full of love and laughter and family (and sisters!) as mine will be.
