A funny thing happened on the train today….I was on my way back to Central after attending the first day of the Youth Exchange pre convention meetings at Olympic Park at the 2014 Rotary International Convention in Sydney. The train was full of Rotarians, youthful Rotaractors and exchange students, when a happy bunch came in, saw my name badge and…
I love lists. I love making a list and then crossing off things on my list as they get done. I admit that I will sometimes add things to a list just so that I can have the satisfaction of crossing them off. Is there a word for people who like making lists? I just did a quick search…
Another week, another 50 or words or less to tell the story!
High Tea while riding on the High Country Rail Trail, old trestle bridges, drinks in rustic country pub. Picnic lunch, sunny autumn days.

Worked; blogged; ran; new hairdo!

As a warmup to the main event on Sunday, my daughter and I did the Lake Ginninderra Parkrun this morning. We both did well despite not feeling confident in our running for various reasons. It was my second run at this parkrun and her first time.
This is a picture of the lake as we started out, taken on my iPhone – it definitely wasn’t ‘on the move’ as shown by the reflection of the sky in the water.
The other two photos are of us getting ready to go and then one picture of us on the move, taken by one of the race officials. I think I have covered this week’s prompt!!
