The Dog Ate My Blog

The Dog Ate My Blog

Eyes downcast, firmly fixed on shoes. I started a blog. Posted often. For couple of months. Then stuff happened. Some big. Some humdrum. Some painful (literally). Then it seemed too much time had passed to start again.
Aha. Buoyed by lots of digital media seminars – and one this week when 5-year-old child # 1’s artwork was tweeted by Google’s Creative Director. https://twitter.com/tomux (She came to seminar with me and coloured pictures happily on the floor throughout, Tom Uglow said she was his favourite audience member. We gave him a picture. He liked it. We were all happy.)

And you awesome people kept visiting, even after I stopped – from US, Europe, Australia and even India – thanks :))

So time to jump back into the digital world – get back to this blog and work out what it’s for, who it’s for, who likes it and why.
Twice a week. Thanks for coming back. Woof.

My house is clean. I mean spotless. Frypan sitting smugly upturned on the bench. Covered in gumption, (kitchen cleaner) waiting to be reborn as pristine. So what am I avoiding? Enrolling in University apparently. With the two kids. Little one in day care just two days a week. Mmmm. No wonder the house is clean.

1. Check more course info online. 2. Get paperwork ready. 3. Go to campus and register. 4. Buy a chicken. (We still have to eat.)

Mama goes back to school


So a friend of mine asked for some help with dropbox the other day. Easy. After sorting out the mildly techy stuff, we got chatting. Life/ life changes/ whatchya gonna do, kind of stuff. This guy is the best guy at finding what’s available and making it work for you. A large cup of tea later, laptop out, I was scrolling through courses at my local university. Drove home with a seed germinating in my little head. Next day called the uni, spoke to the course director. Next day applied online for a Certifcate in Digital Media + Animation.

With fingers crossed that the timetable will work with little one’s daycare and big one’s school hours, I’ll be a full-time student again in one month. Holy Cow.
