Welcome to Monday ~ 19 November 2012

Welcome to Monday dear feminausts. MsElouise and I spent a glorious weekend at the YWCA Australia National Convention in Wodonga. It was so amazing catching up with friends from YWCA World Council and getting a recommendation unanimously adopted to help strengthen the YWCA’s commitment to young women’s leadership. And all in a day and half!

Welcome to Monday is going to be short and sweet this week as I have spent the last 3 weekends out of 4 away from home, and am very tired! Hopefully I’ve found some good stuff to get your week started.
