Once upon a time, a very long time ago, a young country girl took on an apprenticeship in cookery with the full intention of travelling far and wide. She dreamt of cobbled streets and unfamiliar faces, she hoped for untethered experiences and a passport full of foreign stamps.
This young county girl took her first step out of the nest towards her dreams of sky voyaging and moved one step closer to Tullamarine, even though it was to Canberra, it was still three hours closer to an Australian international airport.
The Canberra winter nipped at her bones and the long hot summer creeped in to test her strength. She was gaining more work experience to take with her on her travels and THEN she did something that changed the course of her life forever.
She didn’t get off at the earlier station and came right back home six months pregnant with a beautiful baby boy.
That was exactly 20 years ago on the first day of winter 1997.
This August 2017 I will be FINALLY taking my first overseas trip!
It has been a long time coming and I am so excited!
I once had a vivid dream that I was in a shop in Indonesia and I was in white buying a statue to bring home, I have feeling my dream is about to come true.
Until I write again for our September Secret Goddess Business newsletter, wish me luck.
Love and Blessings Annie
