Sending a huge thank you to Virgin Australia, BPW Geelong, Network Central

OK so it’s not always smooth sailing in my world… which is why I need to say thank you to everyone who manages to keep me on track!  So I firstly need to thank Virgin Australia for coming to the rescue on Tuesday night when Ethan and I found ourselves stranded in Melbourne.  Long story short we’d been caught in transit to the airport and missed our flight… and when the other airline had us on a 4 hour wait for a 10pm arrival into Sydney on the “next available flight” (no fun for a 2 year old and even less fun for his mum!) I was hugely, hugely relieved and grateful that Virgin found us a spot, not just any spot but we found ourselves in their new Premium Economy seating.

This is Ethan enjoying his Premium seating – thanks again Virgin, you’ve won my heart!!

Thank you also to BPW Geelong for inviting me to speak at their Equal Pay Day lunch on Friday, and especially Terry for making all the arrangements and taking good care of me.

Finally, thank you to Kim at Network Central for inviting me to the fabulous breakfast last month with guest speaker Christine Nixon who spoke about her career journey and new book Fair Cop.  Not having much knowledge of Christine’s career, I was in awe with what she has achieved (and overcome, in the way of prejudice and discrimination).  I’m very much looking forward to attending the next Network Central breakfast with guest speaker Wendy Machin, President of NRMA who will share Five lessons from a country girl.

Would you like to join me at next week’s breakfast event with Wendy? It’s on Wednesday 21st September and you can receive the special GOLD MEMBER rate (25% off the booking price) by quoting SPHINXX when you book here.

Shout out to the magnificent men at Manly Cycles (in Manly, of course!) who helped me out today. No, I haven't returned to my youth and bought a bicycle (though I did have a lot of fun on that bike like that time I cycled half way to Adelaide and back during the school holidays because - well - just because. And that time I cycled to the next town over to collect a new pet rabbit, who looked a little horrified when she realised she was to be the cargo transported on the parcel rack).
No, after the bicycle being my mode of transport to and from school for most of my primary and high school years, I don't care if I never ride another bicycle in my life.
But... the horse needed some bike tubes for his tie up post. So the men at Manly Cycles sorted that out for me, with a smile, and wouldn't even let me buy them a coffee in thanks. Big thumbs up!
