Yes I’m back and not just in the corporeal sense either. I’ve been absent this past week due to a strange confluence of events. My husband and I managed to have a house guest [his father], both of us sick AND the offer of 3 paid freelance writing jobs for me ME all at once.
To top that I was then contacted by the university here in Mackay and asked if I was interested in work as a tutor for the distance education students in second year – 50 next semester and 100 in the one following.
So I was in a flurry of updating CV’s, researching who I would be writing for, spending inordinate time in the toilet and trying to play hostess all at once. This I’m afraid left little time for catching up with everyone online, although I have missed my daily visits here.
My mind is finally firing on all cylinders again [about time] and it seems my inner self has come to a kind of understanding with itself and for the first that I can remember I am actually at rest. The timing couldn’t be better as one of the freelance pieces is with a major publication here in Australia and I will need to be at my best to deliver.
I have been working toward this for a while now but didn’t expect paid jobs to start coming in at an increased rate for at least another six months so as I said to my son I’m caught between seriously excited and wanting to hide under the bed with the cat.
So instead of hiding under the bed I’ve decided to go with excited and pleased without falling over the edge into pure panic [a good choice I believe] and as part of that I’ll be back here each day at Unload and Unwind as a way of taking a step back from everything else that is going on around me. Look forward to seeing you all soon.
