The two week break is over and I’m back home after what was a wonderful couple of weeks in tropical far north Queensland (north eastern tip of Australia). We spent a week in Port Douglas and just under a week in Palm Cove.
While we did catch the end of the rainy season and saw some rain each day the overall vibe of the time was very relaxed. It was around 30 degrees Celsius most days and the humidity was 97% because of the rain.
A lot of the break was spent beside the pool reading and swimming but we also got out for a day of touring the Daintree rain forest and took a tour of the Great Barrier Reef where we got to do some suba diving (stunning stuff).
Now it’s back to reality though in my home city of Melbourne where the weather has turned and we’re on the way to what looks to be a pretty cold winter. Luckily we’ve got lots to keep us distracted this year with the arrival of Mini-Rowse expected in just 10 weeks. I spent the last 24 hours assembling cots, changing tables, strollers etc. I get the feeling life is about to change in a pretty significant way!
Thanks to my guest bloggers and case study writers who kept ProBlogger ticking over while I was away. I hope readers found the two weeks helpful. I’d love to hear your feedback on the case study experiment. Were they worthwhile? Would you like to see more of them scattered throughout my future posting (perhaps one per week with a little of my own analysis thrown in)?
Please excuse me if I’m a little distracted over the next few days but I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. The inbox is full (5000 unread emails), the News Aggregator is overflowing (close to 10,000 unread), there’s heaps to catch up on with b5media (which has had some great developments behind the scenes while I was away) and I’m halfway through writing a new resource which I’d like to be able to release in the coming weeks. I’ll definitely be busily keeping ProBlogger going but may be a little distracted for a day or two until I get on top of things. Also – if you sent me an email in the last two weeks please don’t be offended if I havn’t gotten back to you. It might be worth resending it in a few days time in order for it to ge my full attention as I’m scanning a lot of emails right now.
Lastly – here’s a little picture of me taken out on the reef – hopefully it will help me extend the feeling of the holiday for a few days longer.
