Melbourne was cold and I worked too much and did nothing fun except meet a friend for about 90 minutes at my hotel because I was so tired I could barely keep my eyes open, much less go out.
Last night at the close of the trade show and about 2 hours before my flight, at a reception of 1600 people, they announced I had been awarded “most significant industry newcomer” for the magazine, this month celebrating its one year birthday. Therefore I found myself making an impromptu acceptance speech in front of a whole lot of people, feeling very very uncomfy.
Anyway, home now and very overwhelmed with emails and voicemails and trying to catch up over 4 days of work..
However, my book proof is being sent any day now and I’m so very excited to actually see the real thing. I get giddy thinking about it.
