About Carol

Carol’s radio career has spanned 20 years around Australia working for both commercial broadcasters, and since 2001 the ABC. Carol is a Walkley Award-winning journalist, was the inaugural winner of the NSW Cancer Council award for Excellence in Reporting, and awarded the 2007 Premier’s Public Sector Awards medal. She is married to a research physicist, mother of two children, and has a keen interest in medical research, particularly pertaining to congenital heart disease.

Carol is a member of the Hunter Medical Research Institute Foundation. She also likes smelly cheeses, has a deep and abiding love for crunchy whitebait, has a very bad potty-mouth and thoroughly enjoys being over-connected. She considers her three hours on air at the ABC each day to be therapy. Of a sort. Carol does, however, believe in using her evil powers for good.

moments

Oh there are many ... and sometimes we don't really absorb them in the rush. But one of my favourite, heartsquishing moments with Mr 7 is at night when he climbs into bed with me (with his assorted 'buds' - written about previously but which now number FOUR) ... and as he drops off to sleep he reaches out his warm soft little hand and strokes me. He does this so unselfconsciously as a parent strokes an infant.

My heart turns to goo and I realise what a wonderful man he is going to become.

Even though sometimes he tries to kill his brother.

Hi Bern,

I'm glad I went and I'll be trying to make sure I see her on her now monthly visits to Sydney.

My boys are pretty good, they know stuff.

If you want to make Dainere's day, go write on her blog! Just don't teach her any new words, K? ;P

Last night it was the enormous old car stereo his dad just replaced.

Nothing weird about that, right?
