Matters Of The Heart

This week is all about the heart & lots of it. I'd love to say it was the romantic heart that I'll be preoccupied with, but sadly it's the anatomical & physiological heart that will have my full attention. It's the Cardiac Society of Aust. & N.Z.'s Annual Scientific Meeting all week & for once, I don't need to get on a plane to attend, as this year it's Adelaide's turn to play host. All the big bosses + my lovely colleagues are flying in from everywhere today & it's full on from this morning. So there'll be very long days working hard in the Trade Display, lots of didactic & live sessions to attend & some very late nights out drinking, eating & partying early nights tucked up in bed to ensure I'm at my best each day. Thursday I have a 7a.m. breakfast symposium for 130 to conduct with my best client, which means a 4.30a.m. start to get to the Convention Centre by 6.30a.m. - yikes!!! So I'll say goodbye now & if my exhausted state allows, I'll make an appearance on Friday.



  1. It must be the week for conferences in Adelaide. My hubby is heading there for a meeting. He timed it well as he will be able to attend his Phys-ed School reunion (Underdale) while he's there.(yep, thought I was marrying a jock and somewhere over the last 20 odd years he morphed into a Mathematics Academic,go figure).
    Hope you have a stimulating week!

  2. This sounds like a terrific time and I hope that there is PLENTY of 'balance' in the program so that you,[alias The Wonders of the Modern Age] can top up your 'fun' as well as 'cognitive' accounts.

  3. Have a wonderful week Millie, and not too much partying now.
    Also love all your pretty camellias ~ we must be later here, I have just got white buds coming out.


  4. Oh Thursday is early! I find it impossible to get out of bed before 7am and I have two little boys who like to wake early! Must be cold in the Hills that early too. Have a good week. Letitia

  5. it will be a jam packed week

  6. Hey Millie, I hope you have a great week with your collegues/fellow party people. So fitting that you're involved with cardiology...you've got so much extra heart to give, I'm sure you must be a good luck charm. Meredy xo.

  8. All the best Millie, I hope it all goes well.

  9. "late nights out drinking, eating & partying" (WINK WINK) You cracked me up. SO needed that tonight. Hope it goes well over all. I have to say that I DO love that red heart...I think it would look lovlier hanging on one of my door knobs here. HAHAHAHA

    Hugs! :) xo

  11. Sounds Exhausting..Whew! Who's a Busy Girl Huh...Hope it's a Good One.

  12. Well, Mill's,
    If you are anything like Mr. Home, you will retire to your bed with a photograph of MOTH at 10.p.m. at the latest !! That's what Mr. Home tells me he does when he goes away on business....well, not a photograph of MOTH but one of me and the children !!! Yeah, right !!
    Have a successful week, Mill's and try and fit in just a little bit of pertying !!
    See you Friday. XXXX

  13. Your week sounds like lots of work and maybe some fun. Enjoy!

  14. Well, bless your heart;)! Hope you are surviving, and entertaining the bosses!

  15. Hope you're surviving the hectic week Millie!

  16. well i'm glad we've turned on some fabulous weather for the conference, sub zero temps and rain - I hope you are making it up and back the hill every day safely.


And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
