April 15. Day 106. The Logies
I never planned to be a university lecturer (but a friend of a friend invited me to tutor when I was on maternity leave. Next thing I knew I was full time and the Masters on Children and TV News was being submitted).
I never planned to be the editor of a parenting magazine (but an internal transfer came up and the job was closer to home and more convenient than being a chief of staff).
I never planned to be a radio regular taking about all things family (but one guest spot led to another, led to a 10- year association with the ABC in Brisbane).
And all of these things I didn't plan have led to tonight, an event I would never have dreamed I could plan.
This year I am a Logies expert judge in the children's TV category and that means I was at the awards ceremony tonight.
How good is that? Phoneswere banned. No-one cared.
Here's what I saw.
