Academia, science communication.. Much the same story. Even shorter contracts in science communication. Before my current role I had ten jobs in ten years! Now I have a baby and my partner's contract finished unexpectedly, so we're living the issues in this article.

Some interesting ideas here.. But sometimes I wake early (lark) and sometimes struggle (night owl). So how does that fit with genetics? A mixture?

Might have to try some of the "waking up early" techniques to see if they help my owl-side.

Really good article about the (often unconscious) segregation of our children. Bring back multicoloured toys for everyone!

Although the post is four years old, this advice from Lisa Bloom is still good:

Try this the next time you meet a little girl. She may be surprised and unsure at first, because few ask her about her mind, but be patient and stick with it. Ask her what she’s reading. What does she like and dislike, and why? There are no wrong answers. You’re just generating an intelligent conversation that respects her brain.

For older girls, ask her about current events issues: pollution, wars, school budgets slashed. What bothers her out there in the world? How would she fix it if she had a magic wand? You may get some intriguing answers. Tell her about your ideas and accomplishments and your favorite books. Model for her what a thinking woman says and does.

Mum's been on a plane for the day, I've been shopping... She's done more steps! Go +Ann Mason​! #Fitbit-wars

None of these components will make you into a super hero.. There must be more. ;-)

Definitely reading them, Mum. And even reading them out to B so he doesn't miss out (he doesn't check it like I do).

We both had a chuckle at the comment about esky size.. can just imagine!

Rock and roll sounds like fun. And presumably a little closer than Kyneton? they'll have you dancing on one of the Easter floats before too long! :-)

Easter sounds like fun - I saw the "no chocolate egg hunt" on fb. Looks like fun. Especially the painting afterwards.

Right, work time!

Some good advice here (thanks for sharing on FB, +Charles Broughton)
I wouldn't say they were 'Harsh Truths" but some good advice. Posting so I can find it in the future.
