My wonderful super computer won’t boot up. I turned it off the other evening and now it refuses to operate.
It’s rather difficult to blog and podcast without a computer. Actually, it’s impossible. That’s why I didn’t have a new podcast episode to post yesterday. But today I found a way around my computer problem and I do have something to publish.
This afternoon, I recorded this week’s episode with my little Zoom H1 recorder. Then my daughter Sophie lent me her computer so I could do a quick bit of editing before uploading the file to Podbean. The audio quality isn’t as good as usual, but at least I was able to make a podcast.
In this week’s episode, I talk about the importance of family and what we can do to strengthen family bonds. (My children helped me make a list of things that encourage close-knit families and I include some of their ideas.)
Last week my husband Andy, our four youngest girls and I worked on our family bonds. We spent some special time together while we were on a 3 day holiday. I tell a few stories of our time in the Blue Mountains, sharing some Australian history along the way. (I hope I get the facts right!) I also reveal how silly the Elvises are and why being silly is quite okay.
There aren’t any podcast notes this week, but I do plan to share some resources on the theme of Australian history very soon: some books, DVD series, websites… Please watch out for the post!
