It’s been a lovely couple of days and I am feeling heaps better! The steroids and antibiotics have helped my skin and I finally got a good, full night’s sleep last night. I’m still not yet 100 percent Carly, but I will be soon 🙂 I feel a bit behind on reading blogs and replying to emails and texts, and of course, writing, so I hope this weekend allows me to catch up.
We both really liked it – it’s a science fiction romantic chase about chance and predetermined paths. We also did a spot of shopping – Hayley got some clothes and cushions and I picked up a super cheap lace blazer from Temt for a costume party and a ball – both coming up in the next two weeks – and also a doona cover from Ikea.
I love the material of the doona cover so much I’d like it to be made into a dress. If any of my readers are seamstresses and could sew me a dress, please let me know. I’d like to commission you to sew me something 🙂
Yesterday I went to Canberra on a bit of a whirlwind day trip for work. It was a nice day too especially meeting interstate colleagues. I went to lunch at an International Women’s Day event and the keynote speaker was Princess Kasine Zulu from Zambia. She spoke about her challenging life – walking five hours each way to get medication for her dying mother only to return after her mother died, raising her family after her mother had died, being diagnosed with HIV age 21, and realising she has to do more for women living in poverty. She also spoke of the importance of education and women in the workforce. Empowering and inspirational stuff. I bought her book and met her when she signed it.
I love taking pictures from the plane – the light is always so interesting.
