About Me

My place:

postcardOur BnB amongst the trees in Baranduda,  ‘Gallery Cottage‘, has views across the Kiewa Valley and is a great place to stay, relax and recharge.

You can make a booking and get more details about the cottage from our website.

Alex and I would be happy to discuss with you the attractions of the area, where to go and what to see.

My thoughts and reflections:

The Baranduda Blog is where I keep some thoughts, interesting snippets and other travel related posts. Since the blog was created it has undergone some changes in design, in purpose and in branding. This is as it should be in a dynamic personal space that reflects the changes and growth of its writer.

I write my blog entries whilst in my home office in Baranduda – hence the title of the blog. I’m happy with the title and will continue to refer to it as my Baranduda Blog. New pages may appear from time to time as I realise the potential and opportunities afforded in this wordpress domain.

I live in Baranduda in North East Victoria, Australia and I have been involved in education throughout my working life. My career began as a secondary school teacher, then as a lecturer and coordinator in TAFE (community colleges), then as an instructional designer, flexible learning manager and finally senior project officer for TAFE frontiers in Melbourne. In 2005 I began my e-learning consultancy and worked closely with colleagues in TAFEs throughout Victoria and some in other states of Australia. During 2006 I began project work with Community Centres here in my local area of Hume and during 2007-2008 I expanded my professional services to project based  events for the national bodies of the Australian Flexible Learning Framework.

Toastmasters:

I am now retired from Macro Dimensions in my capacity as E-learning consultant. I now focus on providing services and support for Toastmasters in my districts through the various components of CoachCarole.net

I am a member of three ‘bricks and mortar’ clubs and one ‘online’ club. My highest achievements in the Toastmasters International education program include: Advanced Communicator Gold and Advanced Leader Bronze. My goal is to achieve my Advanced Leader Silver certificate soon.

Creative Writing:

My passion is now in learning to be a creative writer and I am practising my fictional pieces and sharing family history stories in another of my blogs: The Celtic FamilyHistory

I am enrolled in an online course for Creative Writing and I am a member of several genealogy groups and associations.

Digital Identities:

I am a wife, mother, grandmother and friend – the essential bits that define my life.
