I’d like to say it’s been a week of swings and roundabouts for me. But that wouldn’t be a remotely accurate description of how I’ve been feeling because I’m a Canberran – which means I bloody love a roundabout.
So, let’s just say that I’ve had a less than divine week: with illness in the family and romantic (or not-so-romantic to be precise) turmoil. I have come out the other side with one lesson well and truly learned and it is this: always surround yourself with fabulous women and then the crappy stuff will seem a whole lot less, well, crappy.
Speaking of fabulous women – I’m lucky enough to work with a whole lot of them, including our new group of Mamamia and iVillage Australia interns. After 3 weeks, they are well and truly settling in – knowing which kitchen cupboard the mugs are in, remembering the optimum image sizes for the website and learning that the love of the editorial team can be shamelessly bought with cupcakes.
We even took a couple of our interns, Megan and Sophia on a ‘school excursion’ on Friday, as we headed over to Darling Harbour to watch Mia host Ecco Shoes World’s Longest Catwalk event. Here’s a peek at what has been happening in the Mamamia offices, the amazing World’s Longest Catwalk and some of our highlights from the internet and social media:

You’ll be hearing a little more from our interns in the coming weeks, as they join our new team of Community Moderators. As the Mamamia community grows and the site receives more and more comments, we’ve asked some of our interns and a few of the regulars on the site to help us out in moderating comments and being around to answer your queries.
So keep an eye out for Phoodie, Amelia, OopsyBoopsy and Sarah in the comments and please make them feel welcome.
That’s enough from me. What’s been happening in your world?
