Short & Sweet - week beginning May 21st

The week is greeted with sadness for many with the news that Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb has passed away following a long battle with cancer. Queensland & New South Wales NRL fans (and once-a-year football fans) are gearing up for game one of the 2012 Origin series on Wednesday, and The Australian is reporting that our New Zealand neighbours are packing their bags for Australia in record amounts with the number of annual departures sitting at 53,462.

Let's catch up: After a whirlwind week inclusive of Mrs. Satchel's last-minute departure for Cambodia, Brooke & I spent this morning resting up; yesterday was spent photographing a lovely home-style garden wedding (the weather was perfect and I'm so excited to get into the editing), while Saturday involved exploring an artist's studio to share with you later this week.
This week's agenda: Plenty of photo processing, editing and compiling to be done, as well as a trip to Brisbane for The Mummy Exhibition (stay tuned), and ending with the best-friend's Hen's Night for myself, and Florence & The Machine's Brisbane show at the Riverstage for Brooke!
The Word for the Week: "I am the vine; you are the branches..." John 15:5
Quote for the Week: "Failures are fingerposts on the road to achievement." C.S. Lewis word of the week: Gambit \ GAM-bit \ noun;
1. A remark made to open or redirect conversation
2. Chess. An opening in which a player seeks to obtain some advantage by sacrificing a pawn or piece.
3. Any manoeuvre by which one seeks to gain an advantage.
"Despite having the opposition hot on his heels, he took a last-minute dive and placed the ball over the line, scoring a try. The gambit secured a win for the team."
