An unusual Noosa day.

Not one glimpse of blue.

During the day not a drop of rain.

Cooler and blowy. Great relief.

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.

  2. Seems you welcome the clouds, but we are longing to see some blue here in the Pacific North West! Not that I’m wishing my life away…

    • No I understand that. We so seldom seem to have grey clouds as most of our rain seems to happen overnight. Normally I would not be so pleased but it has been incredibly hot of late. With you weather grey would seem so dismal. Spring will be with you soon (not that I am wishing your life away either).

    We were to get blue sky but the melting snow created fog and I never did see it!
