To my surprise, I've been nominated for our local council Australia Day award. This award is to honour outstanding personal achievement and service to the community.
The librarian who I work with on the community bookgroups nominated me. I don't know if she mentioned any other voluntary work I do (my work at the community centre takes up much more time and energy; being involved in school P&C and uniform shop, being on the preschool committee, are not difficult). It is nice to be acknowledged. And I must say I love running the bookgroups - I'm being useful and using my degree.
There will be a brunch on the day and I invite four guests - my parents have said they'll come. Should be good.
