One Foot In Front Of The Other

My sons finish school on Wednesday and tomorrow they are having a picnic day at Camp Elim near Forster. I am going as a parent helper and am expecting a huge day of canoeing and games.

On Wednesday I will be talking on ABC radio in Tamworth as part of a 'Keeping Christmas Simple' forum and will then go to the annual prize giving ceremony for the school.

On Saturday I am doing a Christmas Workshop for all the people who come to our classes throughout the year. This means a whole day of teaching with a catered lunch for 25 people in the middle. Exhausting but hugely rewarding!

Saturday night we are having a Christmas Party with friends where I may just have to test my friend's Singstar to see how Abba sounds - must practice those dance moves! Then Sunday we go out to Dubbo to see my Grandmother for a couple of days. I am really looking forward to that. It is a 5 hour drive through country NSW and the scenery is really beautiful. I guess the trip will be longer because we stop to take so many photos. I will be sure to post some of them here for you to enjoy.

We have to slot a trip to Sydney in as well before all our guests start arriving, about the 23rd of December. Then we will fall into Christmas mode. Lots of swimming, eating prawns, water skiing, drink beer and yummy mangoes!

So as you can see, when I lay it all out there is so much to be done and so much to prepare. When I look at it like that I could easily get swamped. So I will look down at my feet with my blinkers on and put one foot in front of the other. Plod. Plod. Plod. I will enjoy each event and be in the present.
So now, to focus only on tomorrow...... sunscreen, water bottles, hat, joggers, Dencorub, valium, scotch. That should get me through the day! lol

Enjoy an action packed week. How did you get on the radio? Did they contact you, or was it a bit of self promotion?

Yes it does sound like a busy week doesn't it!

Gavin, I called in to a talk back programme about two months ago to talk about the Stop Food Waste campaign on the local ABC. They then contacted me last week to come on air to talk about another topic such as Christmas. It just happened to co-incide with my 7 steps to a simple Christmas post so I just talked about that. ABC Lismore must have heard it because they then asked for a similar discussion on their brekfast show. ABC Tamworth called today, apparently they heard the local programme. On Wednesday the forum will include a CWA woman, a woman with a lot of children and little ol' me. - should be fun!

Have fun. I will be sure to listen in tomorrow. We usually head over to Wellington around this time of year for pre-Christmas celebrations and what I notice about the trip is the heat.
