I have been unlucky with technology this year. To be honest I've probably been very lucky in the past. I've had no back up system and have lost very little. That has all changed though and after some big hits... Continue reading

I can see it now - a packet if Tim tams with a warning label - one biscuit = 1kilometre run! I too love the idea of daylight saving though it doesnt seem like thats ever going to be likely. I stayed on Tassie and was shocked at how light it was till so late. It would certainly allow us to make the most of our beautiful beaches. Thanks for your comments. Tamar

Thanks Paul - hopefully the Queensland plan will help develop a way forward for those two areas of health and education. They are the areas that touch every person and can make the biggest difference. Thanks for your input Ill be sure to include your comments. Tamar

I hear you Suzan. I have noticed there is a number of conflicting stories in the papers and on current affairs programs about wait times and services available. I think the true indicators are individual stories. Its only from people sharing them that we can truly assess how we are traveling. Working in education I know too well the frustration for families and students who dont fit the mould. Some schools and teachers are better at finding answers than others. Thanks for giving your views I will ensure they are added to my response Tamar x

Hi Denise :) How lovely LSL. It's always kind of hard to go back though isn't it afterwards. Schools have a way (I guess like all workplaces) of sucking you back in but it can be so rewarding too. I just find now the weekend isn't quite long enough to rejuvenate. Enjoy the rest of your leave xx
