Fly Away With David’s Angels

Flew to Sofia, Bulgaria for a Toastmasters weekend.

District 109 was born in Athens in May. I flew as part of the Austrian team, Division  F for the District 109 Executive Officers Meeting  on Friday 7 September, 2018 together with three of my colleagues. Our Team Leader, David, called us his angels, so we called him Charlie.

What a Team! What a meeting! I just got back and work again tomorrow. So I’m uploading my photos and processing the videos. It was a wonderful experience of team building, not only the Division F Austrian level but the whole of District 109 which comprises Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Lichtenstein, FYR Macedonia, San Marina, Switzerland and Vatican City.

I got up early with a few others who came almost straight from the disco, to go to a local spa. We spent an hour in the healing waters full of calcium and magnesium in a traditional Hammam. Well actually, we took an hour, but only spent 20 minutes in the 39 and 42 degrees Celsius hot water pools.

Then it was back to the Toastmasters meeting for the District Council Meeting. A lesson in Parliamentary procedure, some motions and discussions, some photos and it was soon over.

I don’t know who you are. I just know that I have to write what I’m doing. I got home from the airport, late Sunday night and just have to get my photos and videos off my phone so that I can get back to work tomorrow. I ran out of space at the conference because I filmed so many of the presentations. But these will probably not be shared publicly.

And just now I discovered that I am the winner, yes the winner! of the signed book by Diane Fischer Winter.

Have a look at the great blog and YouTube Channel! So inspiring! And buy the book!





It was my day off.  Everybody else had last Wednesday, 15th August, the Feast of the Ascension of Mary off. I was working then. Continue reading

A Year to Clear What is Holding You Back!

I signed up, yes, a year ago and am now at the end where Stephanie Voigt asks us to pay it forward and write a testimony. I did not read my mails every day. I never read all my mails every day. Even though I have a smart phone and can read all my mails on my phone, I mostly wait till I get home, until “when I have time”. But I get home and am tired and hungry, so I make myself something to eat and sit down to watch something. Continue reading

When will I start blogging?

When I have time. When I retire.
Right now, while I am so busy working and doing lots of stuff which some people do not want me to talk or write about, Continue reading

So now I even have an email address at the same domain. Continue reading

Happy Mother’s Day

Mum, you always say you don’t want anything. As a mother of five as well, I could say the same.
You always told me to be grateful. Sometimes I wasn’t, but now I am. Continue reading
