Heritage Park

Just thought I’d share a sign with you.

There is an old farm lot in Coomera which has been knocked down for an aquatic centre. While I never attended the farm itself, I was always intrigued by the rustic sign at the entrance front.

Podcasts: Gold Coast Women of the Year and Reef 2050

So, what’s been happening since we spoke last?

Well, two podcasts that I had been producing got officially launched.

Gold Coast Women of the Year.

Hosted by Brooke Stoddart, this five episode podcast series focused on successful business women who have a strong connection with the Gold Coast. You can download the series here via iTunes or stream via Spotify.

Reef 2050 Water Quality Improvement Plan.

An eight episode series hosted by Vanessa Barratt interviewing farmers, scientists, and and many others in the field of agriculture, conservation and government departments about the future of water quality and farming. You can download the series here.

Feel free to share the love!

Podcast completion and Jive Beans Promo

Why, hello there!

Today, I recorded the last podcast for the season for the Gold Coast Women Of The Year by The Gold Coast Bulletin. Over the next few days I’ll be adding the finishing touches and launch it into the world.

My creative writing class I did at TAFE was thoroughly entertaining and learnt a fair bit. Expect to see some more confident writing from me in the future.

Over the last week, I’ve helped energize a small business on social media by creating more content to help promote their business. You’ll see it here at Jive Beans Mobile Cafe. Here’s an example of a video promo I created, that cost ZERO $. *No secrets revealed!*

 

I have more ideas up my sleeve. Stay tuned.

Diary Entry Eight

Wow. So much for doing daily entries. I think I had too much time on my hands when I did previous entries.

A fair bit has happened since my last entry (Entry Seven, obviously), so here’s a brief update.

Since late 2018, I’ve been engineering a podcast series for the Gold Coast Bulletin based on their “Women Of The Year” feature. The first episode was launched today, which you can find on iTunes and Spotify.

I enrolled at TAFE earlier in the year to do a weekend course in Creative Writing. I did the first class last Saturday. I enjoyed it. This Saturday, I’ll be doing the final class. I’m looking forward to it.

Now, I’m up to date.

Dear Diary Seven

Whoops! I accidentally let this lapse. I was going to write an entry yesterday, but I couldn’t get around to it. I then thought I will publish an entry in the evening, but same thing – couldn’t get around to it.

Yesterday – Tuesday 4th December, we had Russell Ingall come in and co-host breakfast.

A new streaming service from Ch 10 / CBS is now available and I naturally got excited. But for some reason my ISP at home does not work for access, which sucks – as I was going to do a review. I’m now in two minds whether to write one up… I’ll think about it.

Last night, I watched an episode of Michael Palin’s travel series where he travels to North Korea. Which reminded me to write this diary entry.

The last few days I have been listening to old Martin/Molloy episodes and feeling inspired on classic sketches and station imaging.

Today, Galey is filling in for breakfast co-host.

14 days until holiday break!

Have a great one.

Diary Entry Six

So, I missed out on an entry on Sunday 2nd December. But with good reason.

Actually, I don’t have a good reason. I got lazy. It was my day off.

It was hot weather all day. I surfed the interwebs. Did grocery shopping. On Saturday evening we made gingerbread houses. Sunday – munch time.

Today – Monday 3rd December, I’m at work, preparing for the Christmas / Holiday imaging session. Madeleine West is sitting in on the breakfast show.

It was hot at 6am this morning. About 27 degrees. I’m regretting wearing jeans. Already feeling warm.

I’ve knocked down an espresso and had a sugar rush by munching on some gingerbread.

Let’s see how today goes!

Diary Entry Five

Wasn’t sure if I was going to write an entry today – especially on a weekend. But I found a small bit of time to do so.

This is my second attempt at writing this entry, and my laptop battery is low. So I’ll make this quick.

It’s Saturday – bought candies and decorations to put on our gingerbread houses while sipping eggnog. It’s the 1st December and already enjoying the festivities!

Relaxed and played Red Dead Redemption 2 on the PS4. Two hours of just walking around on a digital map. I don’t know how people “game” or take it seriously. The game really makes you slow down and appreciate game-playing. Maybe it’s just me being impatient.

Scorching hot outside – couldn’t take the dog for a walk.

Tomorrow, another day of R&R as next week is a busy week with production, which I am looking forward to hitting head on and making some of the best imagery I can churn out. Currently listening to another station’s playlist to get some music ideas. Have noted a few down on my list.

Bring it.
