How To Be A Man

I was in an airport lounge the other day flicking through the fancy glossy quarterlies, eating heaps of yummy stuff, having a wine etc.. in fact it was reminiscent of that episode of Kath & Kim where Kath and Kel miss their flight and […]

Dr Doolittle

So you know how I can talk to animals….. Oh – haven’t I told you about that? Yeah, I can communicate with animals. No really, I can. Especially dogs but most animals actually – although fish are tricky and frogs for the obvious […]

Modern Day Castaway

In keeping with the usual calamity that is my life, the other night I locked myself out of my house. Without my phone. Or wallet. Just the running gear I was wearing. As it turns out, there are no public phone boxes […]

Kerbside (& Relationship) Clean Up

It’s true that Old Adage “One woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure” which is why I suspect it’s an Old Adage. This is clearly demonstrated by the annual Kerbside Clean Up currently happening in my suburb. There is nothing like watching impoverished Uni students […]

I See Red!

I saw a story recently on that hunky Dr Andrew Rochford’s son being bullied because he has red hair. This is a problem as old as time itself, and I’ve seen it firsthand – as I’ve said previously in this column Dear Reader […]

Aliens Have Landed

I notice that movie ‘Arrival’ with Amy Adams (LOVE HER!) has just been released on DVD (or on iTunes or Foxtel store whatever it is now – SIDEBAR: I am the only person left with a DVD player?) It’s about these giant octopus-like creatures […]

Potato Torment

Two really awful things happened to me last week. I had to go to Canberra, and There was a potato shortage there. You may remember Dear Readers, how last year I was sent into a sheer panic at the mere suggestion of […]

Soar Like An Emu

Happy New Year Dear Readers! How was your break? Mine was exhausting. I need a holiday after my “holiday”. A couple of highlights for you (in no particular order). Dad putting Dynamic Lifter on the lawn before the afternoon storms hit, yet again sending the […]

Reindeer Games

So I was in Toowong Village with four hundred thousand other people trying to do all my last minute shopping on Sunday and I heard the glorious vocals stylings of one of the great local choirs they get have over the Festive Season. Delightful! […]

Wake In Fright

I’ve just found out some absolutely appalling news – I have something in common with Donald Trump. No, I don’t have a mandarin-hued fake tan and nor is my hair verging on the comical. Turns out The Donald and I both only exist on […]

Slip, Slop, Slap(per)!

How do you feel about Pete Evans? You know him – the Aussie chef  who is a world authority on everything and is on one of the 15 cooking shows on TV? He recently brought back some very traumatic memories for me. […]

School’s Out!

Last week I drove my Goddaughter and some of her friends to Schoolies Week on the Gold Coast. I was crapping myself. She’s so smart and beautiful (and like most of her friend’s) looks NOTHING like I did at her age – […]

Technology Love

My Frusband has named his Sat Nav after me. I wondered if it’s because they always have those smooth, sexy voices but it turns out that’s not the reason. Frusband: “She’s called Alex because she bosses me around, never stops talking and […]
