Too Sick to Plan
I was invited to talk about Co-housing for women at the Relaxation Centre on Augut 3rd, but in the previous weeks I was very sick with a “cold”. Too miserable to prepare my talk. I was even concerned that I would not be able to do it. While I was probably almost recovered, a cough lingered, especially when I talked!
In the last few days it all came together, and on the last morning I set up my computer and data projector and happily ran the presentation successfully. Sadly, for reasons I don’t know, it didn’t work at the Relaxation Centre!
Talk on Co-housing for Women
Well, at least not by me. I was not sure that I’d make it there! But in the end, it didn’t matter as the room was filled with folk who had read the publicity by the Relaxation Centre. I was so thrilled to see so many people interested in my topic. It was the first time I had done this presentation. There were some 30 ladies and one guy! (I learned later that he was a tiny house supporter!)
I was able to tell a little about the Older Women’s Co-Housing in London, the New Ground project that I visited early in 2018.
Our group is enthusiastically pushing forward in an effort to create a project for senior solo women in Queensland. It’s going to be a big challenge. We have a meeting coming up with our group, to advance! We have had to change our name, as we became incorporated.
The work ahead is huge – and I can only hope that we can successfuly create a model for quality, safe, forever homes for a small group of wonderful Australian women.
