Gosh it sure has been a while between blogs hasn’t it. Life just gets so busy. There is so much I need to catch you up on. Well actually there probably isn’t but, none the less I will let my fingers just tap away.
I have a little spring in my step today because I am heading off, once again, on a little trip away. And I will tell you something for nothing my friends… when you are an extrovert living an introverts life on a remote cattle station these little trips away are really the only thing that keep you sane. They recharge my batteries and make me a better person. A happier wife and a much nicer Mum.
You can tell it is nearing the end of the year because generally around this time on the station moods are a little low and we are all just a little bit over everything. Me included. I feel like my cooking is barely scraping through and the crew haven’t seen dessert for over a week. I basically just trot out the same boring meals week after week. I am going to try and find a cook for next year, so if you know of anyone who is HAPPY, clean and a good basic cooker of delicious old fashioned home cooked meals then please tell me.
Ok, so back to my little trip away. Not sure if you remember or not but I am a finalist in the Bupa Blog Awards…
It is very exciting. I am one of 5 in my category and I can’t even believe it. Don’t care if I win or lose because I am off to Melbourne for the Awards night, which is being held on Thursday, and I reckon I am going to meet some fabulous women there.
I fly down tomorrow, so I was planning on just heading off at sparrows tomorrow but the weather has been a little suspect. So I am out of here today, before I get rained in. This will be my second ever trip to Melbourne and once again it will be a very quick one – just two nights but I can’t wait. On Thursday we all head into Bupa in the City for a meet and greet luncheon with all of the other finalists. I only know a couple of people and when I say “know” I mean I have maybe met them once or twice. I am really looking forward to meeting some new, like minded, people.
Oh it will be so much fun, imagine – people who actually get what I do. Gosh I love meeting new people.
The best thing about going somewhere and not knowing anyone: you just HAVE to spread your wings and meet all the wonderful people. It is so good to step out of your comfort zone.
Anyway, I should probably stop blabbing on and hot foot it over to the kitchen. I need to throw out some old food so no one gets food poisoning while I am away and then leave some devilled sausages in the slow cooker for dinner tonight. Or as I like to call them: Cruella DeVilled Sausages! I have also left a frozen chicken curry and a lasagne so they should be set.
Catch you on the flip side my friends and get ready for a trip to Melbs with me and home via Brisbane where I will take my big boy out for the weekend before heading home.
What has been happening in your world? Please tell me everything. Sorry I have been missing in action.
