Gratuitous dawn shot

Just another picture from Paradise that you could see every morning if you worked here...

Long time no blog - blame it on the dog!

One of the reasons that I have not been blogging is seen above - my personal trainer Monty who must be taken for a walk on the beach daily! Lots of things have been happening in my little neck of the woods, and I have been too busy to do justice to it thru this blog! However, blogging is an easy habit to acquire, and also to lose - if you don't use it you lose it - so against my impulse to produce the "perfect" posting I am going for the theory that any posting is better than none.

To summarize: After much fiddle faddling we have finally advertised our Youth Librarian position . Essentially this is equivalent to a full-time professional job, time and salary wise. The reason it is temporary is because it is a new position, to be reviewed for the 05/06 budget. Obviously we would like it to continue but there are of course no guarantees. So think about it, particularly new grads. Six months in paradise in one of the friendliest towns IN THE WORLD couldn't be so bad!! Fresh air, clean water, great fresh food from the farmers' markets, reasonably cheap cost of living, beaches, national parks, big regional town 1/2 hour away, easy access by air (also usually cheap) to Brisbane...great bunch of staff to work with...fantastic experience in an innovative environment...If you're interested follow up the ALIA listing, contact Council direct, or email me here. Closes 28 November.
