::: we’ve moved on but not away

We are Donna and Sherry and this is the blog we created in 2010 while teaching kindergarten together in Melbourne Australia. It was an amazing journey, one which lead us to where we are today.

Sherry is teaching Certificate III in Early Childhood Education & Care and Certificate III in Education Support at Park Orchards Community House and Learning Centre.

Along with internationally renowned UK PLAYworker & Children’s PLAY Consultant Marc Armitage I am a director of Malarkey; a training, resource, education and consulting company for those working in the children and young peoples workforce and an enabling body to the PLAY & PLAYwork sectors … It’s an exciting time at Malarkey as we plan for our first National PLAY & PLAYwork Conference to be held in Melbourne on March 4th & 5th 2016.

While Sherry and I may not be here blogging anymore you can always find me over on the Irresistible Ideas Facebook page, the Malarkey Facebook page or the National Play Conference Facebook page AND of course all the Irresistible Ideas blog post … over 1,000 of them still remain right here for all of you. Sherry and I invite you to come, look around, take what you want and make it your own.

Shez and I have moved on but not away … We live just around the corner from each other, have keys to each others front door, are free to drop in unannounced for coffee and a catch up at any time of the day or night, regard each others families as our own and we are still the BEST-OF-FRIENDS!

Life is a journey full of right hand turns but sometimes you just have to go left and see where you end up. It’s been an irresistible and exciting ride so far. May the good times roll …

~ Donna
