Calmkoala and the Exceptional Bears!
Much has been said by many about this shiny new week, of this shiny new year and the possibilities which lie ahead for a whole NEW DECADE 😊
Mostly, I threw myself over the start line of 2020 back into WA with a huge sigh of relief that the past relentlessly stressful 24 months were over!
Much of it has been spent supporting friends and family with health issues and I have loved being able to spend more time than I would normally with people that I care about.
Much time was spent in long conversations learning fascinating facts about past family members I had never heard of before.
Another challenge presented itself when I found myself having to create a new mode of income after damaging my knee at work and being ‘medically retired’.
Well, that had certainly not been on my radar!
After continually rummaging in my toolkit of employable skills, I kept coming back with the notion that this should be seen as an opportunity…not a difficulty.
Now, here was my chance to prove myself with all the time that I had spent learning at WA… and it has to be said, ‘faffing around’ trying to be confident enough to put it into practice.
Now I had no choice… bills to pay and food to buy!
So, sitting down asking myself, who am I, what can I do?
A mum with a son who bought her the domain name ‘Calmkoala’ because he said, she’s ‘mostly cuddly, but with claws when needed’!
So… meet CALMKOALA and the EXCEPTIONAL BEARS!
After building a rudimentary website for them, these exceptional bears have seen us through the past few months.
Now I have time to return the favour by coming back to WA and continuing with my learning to give them a website where they can be proud to belong!
I am so happy for them to be part of the WA family with me, in a work environment which helps me to be constantly curious and makes me smile all day!
Have a peaceful, positive and productive start to 2020, to all who knew me from previously and all who I hope to come to know from here… Sue
