About Me

Want to write about the fun and interesting things you do over the weekend? Why not give it a go!

I always think it is great if you can follow your dreams, do something that makes you happy or even just try something new!  Last year my New Year's resolution was to write.  I am a bit of a proscastinator at times and the man of the house calls me "gonna"  as in "gonna do this" and it never happens but the thought is there and I do though prove him wrong many times, much to his disgust.  

I came across WeekendNotes which I had already subscribed to online. WeekendNotes.com is an online site where writers can write about fun and interesting things to do.   I applied by submitting a short story and to my surprise WeekendNotes accepted my application. 

Over the last 9 months I have been writing about places I have been to, events coming up, even cafes, restaurants and markets that I enjoyed and thought others would too. I've included the first article I wrote: Sharp Park River Bend Country Bush Camping plus a couple of others: Blackboard Coffee Roasters Cafe, and Ferry Reserve Camping at Brunswick Heads.

It has become a nice little hobby of mine and you do get paid for it, which is definitely a bonus. WeekendNotes have sites all over the world, it may be an opportunity for you to write about places you have been to on your travels, explored and enjoyed, places you have stayed at, dined at, fun activities to do or events coming up. It is a fantastic opportunity to take photos and upload them too.

The editors are there to help you and hey if I can do it I am sure you can too and you never know,  it may lead to a whole new writing adventure, a stepping stone to a new career even!
Click on this WeekendNotes Link  select your city and start writing,  I would love to see your articles.

Live laugh and create.  Happy writing.

New Year new beginnings

Last week of holidays before back to work. Here I am procrastinating about what to do. Feeling lazy at the moment as I have heaps of things to do but not sure where to start. I have set my goals this year:

  • Spend more time on my blog 
  • Continue writing for WeekendNotes.com
  • Paint more paintings
  • Fitness- my goal is to enter the Gold Coast Marathon in the 5.7 km or 10 km run event

Well it is raining today, but I did get off my backside this morning and ran up and down the stairs 10 times (17 stairs up my younger son tells me) and that is no easy feat for an incredibly unfit me.

I must admit I am enjoying getting out running and walking each morning, more walking at this stage. My dog is not happy with me though as I sometimes leave her behind. She is a little Moodle and is more into sniffing, weeing and socialising!  I do though try to take her for a walk in the afternoon. 

My youngest has decided he will have a go to but being school holidays and a teenager he doesn't want to get out of bed at dawn!  I have managed to get him and the family to the beach a number of times over the holidays. which has been fantastic.  Best place to swim and chill out. 

It has indeed been a relaxing holiday at home this year and there is nothing better than spending time with family and friends. 

I hope I have inspired you to set your goals. Check out the Gold Coast Marathon website-  there are some great tips and points and hey - you have until July to train.

Would love to hear about your goals too!

Happy New Year to you.
