Baby Break

As of November 1st 2015 I will be taking a three month maternity leave. Our second boy is due to arrive on November 27th – we couldn’t be more thrilled.

I will return to work February 2016 to announce my new Training Workshops for 2016. I will not be scheduling any more sessions this year.

Thank you for your understanding and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Al my best – Janine de Muinck / InterACT WA

Shh...Shoot!

What’s your favorite curse word?
See, I really used to like ‘Shit’. A fairly innocent word, in the wide range of curse words available, that you can easily change to ‘Shoot’ should there be little ears listening.
So when I bumped my knee at the corner of my desk,  forgot my credit card after ordering a coffee or received another speeding ticket: There was my favorite word.
"SHIT!"
But I write ‘was’, because recently a new curse word has entered my vocabulary.  And it’s a lot worse than ‘Shit’.
It’s the F word...
Now when I bump my knee at the corner of my desk, forget my credit card after ordering coffee or when I get another speeding ticket: There I go. The F word just effortlessly leaves my mouth.
Want to know where I'm going with this?

Well, you should know that ever since I’ve moved to Perth I’ve been surrounded by people who are dedicated F Sayers. And now, a few months later I unconsciously copied that behavior.
So what changed?

It is just what we humans do...…
