I like cycling through Clive Palmer’s Coolum Resort on the way to weekend brekkie. It really is a beautiful spot and at least us cyclists can appreciate the loveliness of the forsaken resort as we pass through. And so I did on Sunday with my son JP (home for the weekend) and his fiancée Jodi. We delighted in seeing groups of chicks—ducklings, young waterfowl and the like—strutting their stuff in the dappled autumn sunshine. I’m not sure that Clive welcomes cyclists and that just adds to the pleasure. I feel cheeky like a kid.

Boogie boarding. Is that what you call it these days—not sure! What fun I had with my friend Sheryl when we decided to break out the boards (her boards) and hit the surf.
I haven’t been surfing surfing for years and was excited. It was 7am Saturday morning as I pulled into Tickle Park at Coolum. A guy waxing his board at the back of his car gave me a nod. Wow, I’m in. There were surfers everywhere, unloading boards, waxing boards, reloading boards. As I looked around I was surprised by the number of sun etched faces shadowed by grey hair—was this where the more mature surfies hang out on Saturday mornings? I admit I felt at home.

Yikes! What have I done!
I felt as though I needed a bit of an update. You know, something to give me a lift, something to brighten me up—an image booster.
I know I have written about presentation before (Go for Gold) and how a couple of props (hair cut, lipstick) help me to feel comfortable with my ageing visage. Just putting on my red lippy helps me to go forth more confidently. And confidence is something I need a lot of right now. I’m struggling with the promotion side of developing my editing business and have been giving myself pep talks about being brave and yes, bold. I figured new glasses would help me in this quest.
