I know it had been a while since I blogged last… but now TWICE in one day!
Tomorrow Australia goes to the polls and votes in a new Prime Minister, it should be pretty close…. I wonder who will come out on top? I’m not fond of Julia Gillard for a variety of reasons – one being her voice, well not actually her voice but the way she uses it. I really think anyone who has the desire to be in public life as she does should have elecution classes. She sounds like Kath and Kim…. I can’t stand it.
Tony abbott on the other hand gets teased for wearing Budgie smugglers but I say good on him. They are much more in form as a life saver and in the surf – I think people are just jealous Tony! I’m not too sure about him as prime minister though… he has some very old fashioned ideas… well we will find out tomorrow.
Now Miranda Kerr was until yesterday the face of David Jones but they dumped her due to rumours of pregnancy – which have been confirmed. Congratulations Miranda and Orlando… As the face of David Jones Miranda did a great job, I thought so anyway. Now wouldn’t you think that they could have a pregnant representative? They do actually sell everything from high fashion to baby furnishings… wouldn’t it make sence to keep her as the face?
Well I’ve said my piece – good luck voting tomorrow – hope you don’t get mobbed as you walk in the gate, do the right thing and purchase the cake from the school cake stall.

Long Time No See
Boy have I been busy… 52 000 words down in the novel I am writing about 50 000 to go. I started it in last November,s Nanowrimo. If ever you need inspiration and motivation to start something (Like a novel) Nanowrimo is the way to go. Although the challenge they give you is 1167 words a day for the month on November which will leave you with 50 000 words on the 30th;for the most of the month I managed to keep up… then life and migraine took over. BUT. I decided that I need to finish what I started. I have been over my 52 000 words and made them the BEST 50 000 words I could put down and now I will finish the story. I have given my self a dead line for my first draft.
I also have been busy painting. The above piece is titles ‘Home Time’ and is now for sale with other work in the Underart Gallery Cairns. A piece is underway for the cairns Art Awards and for the Bundaberg Art Awards both of which are coming up soon.
Last Tuesday I was fortunate enough to attend the opening of the Hinchinbrook Art Awards… I won first prize in one of the sections for an artist book Yay.
I should get back to both my easle and novel… lucky I have a short attention span.
