Getting to Know You: The Best and Worst.

Getting to know you by answering the following questions:

1. What's the best place you ever lived? the worst?
Kew, inner Melbourne, for the closeness to the City and public transport. The shops were fantastic too. I am however very biased to Cheltenham - I grew up here, and loved it for proximity to the beach, city and shops. Oh how I dream of being back at Cheltenham. I do not think I have disliked anywhere I have lived.

2. What's the best place you ever visited on holiday/vacation? the worst?
My fondest memories are on holiday at Eden, NSW. It is a coastal/fishing spot where one can be so close to nature, relax anywhere, and not too far from the hustle/bustle of a town. We nearly purchased a house at Eden, with the intention to relocate there, however it was sold before we could organize finances. Just not meant to be. Ah, but we can still visit there for holidays. I don’t think I have had a horribly holiday – any holiday is a bonus for me because they are so scarce.

3. What's the best job you ever had? the worst?
I have enjoyed all my roles in HR (Human Resources). I find it very challenging and enjoy the people contact. The worst position I had was a Sales Rep whereby we were basically told anything goes to get a sale (before EEO and AA legislation); it was a very small business and the owner was ….(sorry can’t describe what I thought of him here).

4. What's your best talent or ability? your worst?
Definitely time management/organizational skills. I am always punctual, on time and reliable. My worst ability is I am gullible and believe everything everyone tells me!

5. What's the best decision you ever made? the worst?
The best decision was to have children (I have four). Whilst it’s not an easy role and doesn’t come with training, when they give you a kiss or a hug it makes it all worthwhile. I don’t think I have made a “worst” decision because I don’t dwell on that, I use the outcome as part of life’s learning curve.

Bonus (so we can end on a positive note!): What's one good thing about you that isn't covered in the questions above, but that you'd like to share with the world?
I love making new friends – will you be my new friend?

I love your gullible answer! I totally could have used that one too! I actually (really, truly) won most gullible in my high school class (way back in the day)...

Mike told me last night that his radio wouldn't work because the air waves were frozen... can you believe I bought it!?
