Thank you to my writing friends Teresa Ashby and Rosemary Gemmell for the Stylish and Versatile Blogger Awards. Here are seven things about myself that I hope you find interesting:
I love the beach and getting out there on my body board. I get a lot of smiles and waves from the shore and wonder whether it's admiration or a thank you for the humorous sight of seeing a 47 year old carrying on like a big kid.
I enjoy the seclusion, excitement and adventure of camping; nothing beats cooking outdoors, the sights and sounds of the wild life and the sense of freedom. I love Australia!
I worked in a law firm for ten years - started out as a junior and worked my way up to a para-legal. I learned a lot about people, patience and organisational skills which has served me well in life.
I love chocolate - Cadbury - Yummy!
I adore my kids. My Mum was spot on when she said no matter how old your kids are you always worry about them. I have a 25, 21 and a 4 year old.
I struggled with my personal identity for a long time. I am a first generation Australian. My parents were born in Malta. It was tough growing up and having to deal with racism. On the upside it instilled in me the importance of being empathetic towards others and celebrating the multi-culturalism of my country and home - Australia. Writing is something that gives me a sense of self - of who I am and what I am about.
I strive to one day be remembered and respected for writing something that impacts on people's lives in an uplifting and positive way.
I am going to take the easy way out here and pass on awards to anyone who hasn't received one yet. Please post your name in this post so we can all wander over and learn seven things about you. Thank you for taking the time to read my post and learn a little more about me. It's your turn now. I would very much like to learn more about you!
