Hi Dee,
I'm sorry that I wasn't able to spend more time in Newcastle, but at least we can stay connected virtually. I'm looking forward to it!

Hi Dee,
That sounds fine. I'm busy Monday arvo and Tuesday but am around for the rest of the time and my kids are at their grandparents so give me a call and drop down for a coffee. I've got a few ideas re the network as well.

Hi Dee,
Great to see you on the Fiery Spirits. I've just started an Oceania group if you feel inclined to join and add some thoughts/ideas/discussion threads. I reckon its a great way to connect the ABCD Asia Pacific Network with the wider world.
Talk soon
