Initially I was a little nervous on receiving Darcy’s tweet informing me I’d been tagged … but on reflection, I decided to honoured my last year’s New Year’s resolution to take on all challenges and think ‘Yes’ before ‘No’. So, here goes:

1. I love stationery … piles of blank pads, sharpened pencils, packets of postits, boxes of pens bring a special feeling of well-being.

2. I loved primary school but disengaged in Year 7 and majored in truancy in Year 11 and 12 and Teacher’s College.

3. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to work with a visionary principal at an independent girls’ school in Sydney (1988 – 1998 ) .. she gave me the challenges and opportunities to really develop as an educator.

4. I am torn … I feel like a traitor leaving the public school system and yet, know I wouldn’t be where I am if I hadn’t joined the private school system. Now happy to be working in public schools again!

5. I love my two Border Collies.

6. I am into surf and turf i.e. love my morning beach walks as well as my time up on our 5 acre rural retreat .. life is indeed good!

7. I fractured my ankle in October 2008 and need to get back to being fit and active again … and losing the 3.5 kg I put on while sitting on my backside for 8 weeks!
