*roars* You know it’s going to be one of those days when this sums up your mindset perfectly. *more roaring*
Not five minutes ago I totally demolished a large fruit-filled hot cross bun. It had been lightly toasted in the oven and then slathered generously with butter which melted into a gooey pool of goodness, dripping down my fingers as I stuffed it into my gob. Oh my God. So good. Along with a giant coffee, this has only begun to slake the beginnings of my mercurial mood. I am ALL about the carbs today. In a ‘gimme, gimme, get out of the way’ sort of style. This hormone-flooded body will not be trifled with when it comes to feeding the menstrual swing and after almost 36 years of dealing with it, now I don’t even bother. I’d have better luck stopping my breathing, I reckon.
Last week I attended the Digital Parents Conference in the very posh surrounds of Curzon Hall in Sydney. First time I’ve ever been to DPCon and it definitely didn’t disappoint. There were two very busy days filled with various informative panels with entertaining and powerful speakers. They made us laugh and they made us cry. AND by God, they made us appreciate! And be thankful. We have some incredible writing talent here in Australia and I am awed by their bravery and generosity in telling their stories.
There were also plenty of opportunities to meet new and old friends, which in my view is one of the BEST things about going to conferences like these. It is beyond cool to meet the real person behind the blog and sharing a conversation with them is always a huge highlight for me.
There was one other highlight as well. I won a door prize, much to my surprise and delight! Let me take this chance to send my grateful thanks to one of the sponsors, the fabulous people at Red Balloon. Guys, you have NO IDEA how perfect this prize was for me – currently a hormonal, PMS-suffering cranky-pants woman – I mean, who wouldn’t love a large box filled with delectable Max Brenner chocolates? Yummmmm. Instant mood lifter, right there.
Timing is so often everything and today that chocolate has been my SALVATION. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
So how’s your mental state today? New York? Empire? Or perhaps more of a Sunday Snooze?
