November 4 : Awesome night at @ausoftheyear for NSW, hosted by @wendy_harmer, here with the team from @abcsydney. Such a lovely pic of three awesome women I work with.
November 6 : In the old days, when a family member or friend underwent surgery in a faraway distance, you could never be sure how things were going. These days, you can get a photograph shortly after surgery. Very reassuring to get a thumbs up!
November 6 : Noticed that The Exchange is under renovation. Hopefully they’ll go 90s style and make you walk through the men’s toilets to get to the dance floor again.
November 8 : Yup!
November 9 : Thirty years today (9/11/89) since the fall of the Berlin Wall. This was me, along with Louise, Amanda and Mrs Kearney six years earlier, in May 1983.
November 9 : There is a garbage bin within a few metres of this location on Crown Street, #SurryHills and yet a bunch of local or visiting #knobs think it’s appropriate to leave their garbage on a piece of public art.
November 9 : Birthday Boy
November 15 : It’s #ausmusic t-shirt day, where you wear a t-shirt from your favourite Australian band. I’ve gone with Combat Wombat, a band comprising DJ Wasabi, son of Kate. https://www.abc.net.au/…/m…/aus-music-tshirt-day-2019/115680
November 15 : At today’s Elevate Reconciliation Action Plan launch at the ABC a whole bunch of people discovered Loren Ryan from ABC New England (Tamworth) is not only a terrific reporter, but an awesome singer too!!

November 21 : Hey Sydneysiders, last year Kate and I went to this, and it was FANTASTIC! We’re going again this year. So if you’re anywhere near Sydney Opera House this weekend, I’d highly recommend it. https://www.sydneyoperahouse.com/festivals/dance-rites.html A CELEBRATION OF FIRST NATIONS DANCE Witness the powerful coming together of traditional customs, language and contemporary culture, with hundreds of First Nations dancers from all around Australia and performers from around the world. Join us on the Forecourt, as we celebrate the UN International Year of Indigenous Languages and share in this free festival of live dance, music and community.
November 22 : Last night Sue and I went to see Nikki Britton at The Comedy Store. Neither of us had heard of her before, but she was fantastic: bloody funny, biting, personal, political, feminist humour. Will keep an eye out for again. Apparently she’s on TV on a show called “How To Stay Married”.
November 23 : Though I live in the inner city area of Sydney, there’s still plenty of birdlife, as you’ll hear from my balcony this morning.
November 23 : Lovely day down by Circular Quay
November 23 : Santa has arrived early in Sydney
November 24 : In my apartment communal bin room. I thought the point of the new shopping bags was to reuse them. Thicker, more sturdy bins in landfill now.
November 24 : Terrific day at Sydney Opera House, attending Dance Rites.
November 25 :The curse of having a common name/email address.
November 26 : Nanne Grönvall är tillbaka! #melodifestivalen (Benny from ABBA’s daughter-in-law is competing again in the Swedish finals for Eurovision). She was robbed in 2005!
November 27 : In the audience for Gruen.
November 29 : Have just seen a fantastic show called Sam I Am about being gay and deaf at East Sydney Community Arts Centre.
November 29 :Very funny. Gang-nam style meets Drag-queen style.
November 30 : Terrific piece of public art in #surryhills which name checks @ABCClassic
