For all my lovely Vesta followers, sorry I have neglected you all.

I have been so caught up with by book, getting better, shopping and preparing for the "I Can Do It" conference in Sydney this weekend, that I have been very neglectful. 

I have had a great week since coming out of hospital last week.  It took a few more days for my tummy to settle, but am feeling back to normal.

These last few days since Monday 13th our home-schooling queen - Sarah, has once more become a regular school student.  She hated the home-schooling challenges, and spoke to her school about returning.  With great courage and maturity, she handled the transition back herself and I was very proud of her.  Her 10 days back at school has been filled with challenges and hard work, but the difference in this young lady is awesome.  Keep it up Sarah.

On a personal note - I have signed off on my book revisions and it is now at the printers - an official book.  I had the JOY of choosing the front cover - what a task and the trepidation of pushing the send button on the final authority. 

I am also heading down to Sydney for 4 days of indulgence with my beautiful friend Michelle and all the inspirational speakers that Hay House has brought together for the "I Can Do It" conference and then on Monday, I am attending a Writer's Workshop and a 'Meet & Greet' afterwards.  It is going to be amazing.

So more news next week, hopefully with tons of photos.

Home Schooling Queen

Sarah started her Brisbane School of Distance Education course today.  It was fascinating to watch her master the technology and overcome all her anxiety about educating herself.

Mondays are going to be a big day for her, as she has 5 online scheduled lessons in a row.  But Fridays are going to be wonderful with only one lesson. Self motivation is a big thing with this sort of learning and I think that Sarah is going to flourish. 

Concentrating very hard

Amazing technology - Sarah working with her Business class online.

Beauty and Brains

Our beautiful daughters have excelled themselves of late. First of all Sarah was granted a photo shoot at Bettina modelling agency and accepted onto their books as a client.  Her photo shoot was stunning beyond anything I ever imagined.  Here are a sample of her photos.

That stunning face!

 And then our equally beautiful and clever Elizabeth graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature (extended major) and Ancient History.

 And of course none of the above would have been at all possible if it has not been for the amazing genetics - both beauty and brains of the two people below.
