I don’t keep a record of the distances I travel but in 2012, I must surely have broken all my previous records.
I’ve seen my share of towns in the Victorian Goldfields, been as far west as Port Fairy, wound my way through the Dandenongs and north into NSW. I’ve visited festivals, schools, kindergartens, childcare centres, libraries, bookshops, parks, a child’s party and the outdoor furniture department of Bunnings! I’ve been a guest in Catholic, Jewish, Islamic, Christian and Secular schools and been privileged to enjoy the hospitality of some awesome teachers, childcare workers and librarians.
I’ve met extraordinary individuals working their hearts out to give our children the very best care and education they can. It’s been a fabulous year of storytelling!
As the year winds down, the storytelling bookings slowly fade away - there will be one last surge just before Christmas and then I'll pack the story box away for a well-earned break. Whew!
