|View of a cold 13 degree day from the stairs at the conference Hotel|
|My Hotel looking deceptively bright but blowing a freezing gale!|
|An improvement on Saturday|
|The Pavilion, Venue in The Veale Gardens|
|Strolled through the beautiful Rose garden|
|Lots of ducks & ducklings I was trying to take a photo like the one below when they all got up and headed towards me |
The first Workshop was called Getting on the floor: Mother and infant Psychotherapy by Dr Amanda Jones from UK. It was not really about engaging with the baby at all, in fact talking to but not handling the baby. However the cases she deals with are all appalling and I am glad i am not in that field. She is a great presenter though so lots of thoughtful ideas and things to contemplate. Well worth the early rise. Luckily I did not get caught like Megan and Campbell did the next day. Their 7am flight was delayed and hour and a half!! and they arrive din the middle of the first presentation atht Campbell was to chair!
I was back in Glenelg by 445pm and met Jo at the hotel. She was down in Adelaide to do come parental caring and needed a break! She came with me to register and had a few drinks at the Reception then we had dinner.
I realised when she left in the morning (or rather I left for the conference) that I hadn't taken a photo But here is one. She doesn't look much different. I have let my hair go .
We had a great evening of catch up and endless chat, comparing family notes, and she even gave me a professional foot massage for my plantar fasciaitis, my left foot becoming a major problem!
