It may sound trite, but what are we without our families? The family unit is why we go to work, take on a mortgage, and join the local school council or sporting club; we want our kids to thrive under our watch.

I love the writing game. It gets me bouncing out of bed, and dragging my feet at night when I have to finish up for the day. I started at The Bendigo Advertiser as the Creative Services Coordinator, and after many changes, I have ended up with a great 12 years with ACM (love that long service leave too as my secret gardens need tending sometimes). Working from home is tops and I hope I have many more productive times ahead.
