October is always a mad month for me.
It is my mum and dad’s birthday. I look after them pretty much full time with help from my two elder sisters. It is my birthday.
This year it was my youngest son’s 21st birthday.
Below was how I spent October including flying to Christchurch for my son’s 21st.

Last year I curated October, since it is Connected Educator month. Therefore I was able to anticipate this month a lot better. But it still was busy.
I am also in the final stages of co-authoring a book with Pam Hook and I am really excited. I wrote down a book goal nearly 6 years ago.
