It's amazing that you get to wake up every day to do a job that you love. It's also amazing that your family has supported this journey and that everyone was involved in the decision making. Of course, it's not easy and of course, you were going to question what this was going to do to your family life and your partnership. But, you're an amazing role model to your kids and a true partner to your husband (as he clearly is to you). As you said, you're giving it your best shot and that's what counts. You found a solution that works for all of you AND you get to do a job that you love. Respect.
This is a good piece. Logical, informative, factual, and with context and perspective. It's a good example of why independent and good journalism is so vital to our communities, despite the negative fallout that much of the media sector has faced in recent years. I'm sorry that you can't do your job without having to deal with abuse. Thank you for what you're doing, and helping us understand the big picture. As an Australian who has lived abroad for years, and now settled permanently in Europe, it's still important for me to know what's happening in my first home, what people are thinking and the zeitgeist of the moment. Watching the pandemic and the vaccination rollout unfold has been particularly mind-blowing...so much to say, but this is not the place for it. Thanks, Gemma. I'll keep an eye out on your work.
