I am off to Canberra as a keynote/guest speaker to talk with our Politicians

Next Monday 14 July 2014 PGARD (Parliamentary Group on Asbestos Related Diseases) have organised a luncheon at Parliament House, Canberra for various party politicians to be present.   Also ASEA (Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency) are also supporting this important event to raising awareness about the dangers of asbestos.  I have been invited to be a keynote/guest speaker.  It is an honour to have been asked and I am looking forward to this event.

I will be flying up on Sunday afternoon and staying with good friends for the night rather than an early flight on the Monday morning that could leave me feeling exhausted and a bit short of breath.

Our winter weather has well and truly set in today.  We were lucky to get above 4 degrees celcius.  Charlie is feeling the cold and goes from one lap to another or ducking under a doona to keep warm!
We went into Gisborne - our local village today to buy Charlie his staple diet of free range chicken or BBQ chicken and caught up with Keith's daughter (my step daughter) Karin for a coffee/chat in a warm cafe then braved the cold winds to the car.

Today on the Gold Coast was my friend Zoe's funeral - I was not able to attend however in a couple of weeks will attend the ceremony of her ashes into the Brunswick River.  Miss Zoe RIP - we love you.
