The Mother Tongue
I’ve been busy setting up the website and fiddling behind the scenes for The Mother Tongue, an event by Digital Parents birth momma Brenda (who seem to have some sort of ADHD because she can’t stop creating new events for bloggers). I was supposed to be one of the speakers but I had to pull out because we’re moving houses again. I think it’s going to be an awesome night, so buy your tickets now!
Logitech boom box
Mother’s day came early this year! Logitech’s UE Boombox is a great Mother’s Day gift for the gadget mums out there like me. It’s a fantastic lightweight Bluetooth speaker that lets you use your smartphone or tablet to play and control music from up to 50 feet away. Great solid sound, so much so that hubby’s been hogging it since it arrived (RRP $299.95).
Bosisto’s Eucalyptus oil saves my table
I had no idea that the Bosisto’s Eucalyptus oil has the power to erase the paint on my daughter’s play table that I haven’t had the power to clean up in years. I tried nail polish remover but it almost took out the white paint! See the before and after photos yourself. I needed to clean it up so I can repaint it. Now I can!
Pixar short films
Pixar’s latest short films are on DVD and they are absolutely awesome. I had no idea they had several of these things. I only saw La Luna before the Brave screening ages ago and that one was really good too especially on 3D. My favourite in this DVD is the Day and Night out, brilliant concept. It’s worth watching and getting.
I’m about to finish my online course at the Australian Writers’ Centre. Even after how many years in the industry, I still got heaps of information from the Magazine and Newspaper writing course. I’m definitely doing the second course later this year. Valerie Khoo and Allison Tait are really helpful. I’ve never done an online course before but this one is easy to do and very interactive. One thing I do want to tell anyone thinking of doing the course is that they should maximise the QnA section. Ask the teacher! That’s what it’s like in a real classroom so make the most of it!
The Giveaway insanity
I know you’ve seen the giveaway overdrive here and I’m so glad you continue to support it. I committed to several projects before DPCON13 and I’ve been trying to have them all done after the craziness of the conference. I have more to come though so keep watching this space!
