Two nights in Sydney

I’ve been to Kings Cross once or twice. I was kinda disappointed because I grew up thinking it was a ‘square’ ala King George Square in Brisbane. After spending two nights here, I’m still not sure where the cross actually is. Apparently it’s a street (I think?) or maybe it’s a suburb?

One quick post (literally) from the plane at Brisbane airport. I’m on my way to Sydney for Connect 2016 – the annual Supply Nation Trade Show and Awards Event.

This week in Sydney and Canberra

Late yesterday afternoon I finally landed back in Brisbane after 8 days away in both Sydney and Canberra. It’s so great to be home. I don’t think I do ‘away from the kids’ very well.

Tools downed

More often than not, I fall off the social media landscape when we go on family trips. Partly it’s a security thing – if the whole family is away, who is at home? But it’s also an environmental thing.

Photo Challenge: 345

If you’re a Facebooker you may have seen this challenge go through your stream. I have been handed, by the fabulous sistah Dr Sandra Phillips, the what I’m calling, 345 Photo Challenge –  that’s 3 photos to be posted each day for 5 days. I then hand the baton onto another person. (345 = 3 for 5 days)

Working remotely. The challenge of being out of the office for a week.

Today I’m working from Sydney, then on Wednesday I’ll be working from Melbourne. I’m away from the office all week and won’t be back in Brisbane until late next Sunday. Working remotely is a challenge that I’m gradually getting used to. I thought I’d share some of my copying strategies, and maybe pick up some tips along the way.

Why I have trouble booking flights more than a few days ahead

I have real problems booking flights too far in advance. If you know me in real life, you already know that I leave it to the last possible minute. Even overseas trips! Anyone would think we were cashed up! Most of the time, short-notice flights cost way more than those booked in advance. But I can’t do it, I always end up leaving it to the absolute last minute possible (a stress-filled mix of price, availability & timing).

WIPC:E in Hawai’i … A look around

We didn’t do a lot of sightseeing, and I really didn’t take a lot of photos. Mostly I think because the landscape was so familiar, it just looks like Cairns – mountains, green, rain, water. I also spent more time just being there, rather than documenting the whole experience. I thought I’d take many more photos and video, but turns out I didn’t want to see the whole conference through lens.
