Ah blogging. You funny beast. While I have been away you have trundled on without me. As you do. As is the nature of the online animal. But when I was not here (and let’s face it, it wasn’t exactly an extended holiday) there has been time to think. Lots.
Here’s just a random selection of thoughts, fleeting or otherwise from the past week.
Work started again for another year. New kids, new staff, new ideas. There is a good tired at the end of each day.
I have been running again. Lots. It feels good, physically and mentally.
We are still an organised house. Who knew that could happen?
I watched the first Q and A last night. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. It’s an election year, please get it right Q and A people. I know you’re the ABC and you need to show impartiality. But I am fairly sure you can do that and still ask the really good questions of politicians.
Actually, even when the really good questions are asked, perhaps some more pushing for the actual answers would be good. It is Question and Answer, not Question and Avoid.
I have some things almost ready to say. But I think for now they are still works in progress, and this year I have decided to take my time, slow and steady.
So, while I mull over them a little more, bake a cake for afternoon tea and a little homework incentive, here’s a song that I just can’t get out of my head. It is more than just words. And I wish, actually, that this was the kind of heart we got from politicians.
I may be a dreamer. But words they are powerful. Say it like you mean it politicians. Then I may actually believe you.
