Posting Drought - On My Mind

Well the drought looks to be about to break and hopefully next week will mark the getting back to it all and writing some decent posts.

After a a germ attack I have been back to full health but busy busy busy.
So what have I been up to that has kept me away from my blog?

Well to cut a long story short about 12 months ago a large number of locals were asked a few simple questions about the community/district in which we live.
What do you like about it?
What don't you like about it?
What do you want to change?
What do you want to keep?

From this public meetings were held and the ideas were grouped and sub committees formed to work on these ideas.

I was nominated the leader of my group and we set to work looking at what our community wanted and one of the things they wanted was events to attract visitors to the town.

 So for the last 6 months my group have been working towards putting on a classic car and motorbike show, and this Sunday is the big day.  The Inaugural Kilcoy Classics on Wheels.

We have joined in the with the annual Wood Wine and Art Festival which enables us to attract a much wider audience and also takes away some of the issues around public liability and insurance.

Now that was not such a short story but hopefully next week I will be able to post some photos of  how it all went but till then I have my fingers crossed for fine weather.


  1. That role should keep you busy. Hope Sunday's show goes well for you.

  2. Hope it all goes well for you Fiona. Who knows, we may even go for a drive on Sunday!? cheers Wendy

  3. It sounds like it should be a lot of fun on the weekend. I'm sure it will go really well.
    It must be a real buzz working with people in your community on a project like this.
    Can't wait to read about how it all goes.
    Have fun.

  4. We are battling a broken bore (again). The cattle are sick of being in the same paddock and I am terrified. The outlook here is not so good. But I won't panic (not just yet and not after I've managed bobcat driving). Just trying to breathe deeply.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
