Aim for the Stars, Changing Faces and cheese.

It's been a funny week. After a four day weekend, I spent a short amount of time at work on Monday and then on Monday I went to hospital to get my sore foot looked at. The pain was excruciating. And so after a five and a half hour wait in emergency, a one hour consultation with a VERY NICE emergency doctor and a foot dressing, with instruction to return to the dermatologist the next morning. I had four days off work this week with couch rest. Last night I realised I hadn't had any human contact until someone knocked on my door at 9.30 pm alerting me to a car with its lights on. My foot is healing slowly and I can finally walk on it without wincing.

So today I went to work - it was good to see humans again. I stocked up on yummy foods from my green grocer and this for dinner.

Tasmanian cheese and salmon, hummus, tomato, fig, strawberries and grissini. I also made a cocktail of peach juice, ginger beer and white wine.

I also have some really exciting news... last week I got a call from surfer Layne Beachley who told me I have been successful in receiving a grant through her Aim for the Stars Foundation. I want to start the Australian branch of Changing Faces and proposed this idea in my Aim for the Stars application. The grants have been formally announced now so I wanted to tell you all here. Tonight I have a skype interview with the CEO of Changing Faces, and on Monday I meet with the Centre of Appearance Research who are here in Melbourne for a visit to discuss how I can work with them. I am so excited about all these opportunities coming to me!

  4. Congrats! Sounds like a very exciting opportunity. Also, your dinner looks absolutely fabulous. Much better than the bran cereal I'm eating halfway around the world.
