I'm going to make it to the Aussie Bloggers Conference!!!
I'm very excited about this very first ever Aussie Bloggers event.
At first I didn't think I'd make it.
I looked at my budget and my heart sank faster than a lump of concrete thrown into the ocean.
I did a little figuring. Tried a bit of the "rob Peter to pay Paul" type of thing.
Checked the calendar for future incoming bills, like gas, electricity.
Uh-Oh, two of each due between now and March.
Damn. Bugger. Oh Dear.
Then I remembered my last resort option. If I could manage half of the cost, maybe R (brother) could help with the rest?
We don't stay in touch as much as we could, both of us being shy, and having spent much of our childhood apart, we don't really know each other.
Add to that, he lives in WA, and he is away from home a lot, working in remote areas.
I emailed him, crossed my fingers and hoped he would read his emails.
He answered this morning. Oh joy!! He can help!
I'll be at the conference.
I'm looking forward to meeting my internet friends.
I'll be the quiet, shy one sitting in a corner.
