Today I’m quite pleased with myself, and I don’t see anything wrong with announcing it!
- I attending my niece’s cooking demonstration at her school. It was called ‘Cafe for a Day’, and the girls got into pairs and cooked lunch with dessert for the parent that could make it, or parent-substitute (that was me). Spaghetti with a tomato and basil sauce, parmesan crisps and coffee tiramisu, at a bench set with table cloth and all. Very nice!
- I then paid a visit to the President of the Ku-Ring-Gai Orchid Society to show him how to update the website I set up for them a couple of years ago. Have a look in a few days and see how he’s going – www.kuringaiorchidsociety.org.au. It’s the best time to visit such an exceptional orchid grower, with so many orchids in flower!
- I then finished, yes finished, the client research and report that has been hanging around for months. My illness and lack of knowledge of, and access to, Queensland records, got in the way, and I sat down yesterday and systematically went through all the digitised records that are now available on Ancestry, World Vital Records, the Queensland State Archives, the State Library of Queensland, and Judy Webster’s website and wrote a list. Actually more of a worksheet. As a result of all this research I had a breakthrough.
A good day.
Tomorrow, back to the essay.
