Not enough rain to do any good in the paddocks, just to stop me driving.Thank goodness for our neighbours, to the south, who are also owned by the same company we work for.I don’t think I have been to Canberra since our year 6 excursion circa 1990.Now getting to Canberra isn’t the easiest thing to do when you live way up here.Rain doesn’t mix well with our 165km of dirt road that we have to travel over just to get to the highway.I just need to mention that we are in a pretty bad way up here and things are very dry, very very dry, we are still waiting for the wet season from January 2018 to come, but it seems every time I want to drive out of here there is a tiny bit of rain that puts a stop to it.First stop Brisbane and then I finally arrived in Canberra to my friend Shelly around 5pm. My gorgeous Sister-In-Law – Caroline – had told me about a wonderful Japanese restaurant that they had been to – Akiba. We arrived a little early so went across the mall to a bar called Kokomo’s – we were told they would take care of us and make great cocktails. We were there faster than you can say “we will have a Cosmopolitan please”. Wendy is from a station outside of Camooweal (our local) and is also the Federal President of ICPA (Isolated Children’s Parents Association) so spends a lot of time in Canberra. Gosh it was good, I can’t speak highly enough about that restaurant and the fabulous service.I was open to all suggestions because I didn’t have a clue where we were going to eat. Wendy is amazing and does so much to better the lives of remote families. Caroline was right telling us to book because that place was packed – always a good sign.
Wild Spark is all about connecting rural, regional and remote women, helping them be the best they can be no matter where they live.I have always wanted to attend one of the many Business Chicks events, but it is just so hard because they are all held in Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne and it is just unaccessible and too expensive for a quick trip down there. There is now larger data packages that you can select and the connection is much faster and very reliable. It still blows my mind that I can be out here in the middle of nowhere and connect with people all over the world.
