Belly walking: Weekly Smile


This is the first week of Trent’s new weekly smile. The purpose and guidelines can be read here but briefly the aim is to make at least one other person smile. It can be in any form you wish. So here is mine.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

    That is pretty funny. What is it, an extreme show of submission while simultaneously showing defiance by “walking” away? Well deserving of a smile πŸ™‚

  4. That’s Bundy on his (her?) belly, right? Probably the first time in weeks he’s been the center of attention, unless Muffin’s nips must count. Or maybe he just wanted to stay for second dessert. Please give him a smooch for me – the performance deserves at least that much.

    Ouch! Unless of course this is a way to scratch said parts! It certainly does make one smile though πŸ€—
