I send my best wishes to all the new girls there in Melbourne for this week's training.

I was in your position last September and learnt so much and have enjoyed the support of all the attendees from last September.. and we all keep in touch through good times and bad.

Being in Tassie it is wonderful  to have advice and support readily available from all over the continent- it cannot be measured. I am sure you, like our group, will make some lasting and wonderful friendships this week.

Hey girls,

some in our group are having a "wee bit of a struggle". How can we best support them? I am sure you can come up with some great ideas.

We think of each other a lot and even though we are scattered across OZ, we are close.

Post some ideas and let's get it happening! If we were nearer we'd deliver meals and help in the home, etc etc., but there must be some ways of letting our girls know we love and care about them.

Ideas please!!!! Mandy xxx
