Bag Standard

Dressing for corporate galas is a real challenge. I mean, you’re at the office all day in your sharp suit and power bun, and then you’re expected to somehow magically transform into black tie mode at the drop of a hat. I don’t know why it’s even called that – black tie – when women …

My Precious?

You can’t go through life being too precious about things. That’s my philosophy, anyway. Well, actually, it’s more my grandma’s philosophy, but I’ve adopted it as my own because it seems to work pretty well. I mean, if it saw her through the Great Depression, a world war and immigrating to the other side of …

Fired Up

What are your preferred ways of keeping warm over winter? For me, it’s cuddling dogs, sporting a ski onesie, and excessive cups of tea. If I ever achieve my dream of having a home sauna, that’ll probably top the list. As it stands, I have to go to the local pool for that, and I …

Dad Daze

June worries way too much, and it’s starting to get kind of annoying. Ever since I got that speeding ticket, she’s had me filed as the delinquent sibling. For the love of god, it was one time, and it was only because Jeffrey was screaming his head off in the back seat about needing to …

ATAR Angst

My younger sister, Angela, is obsessed with getting into a particular uni course. The thing is, she’s only in year 8. I have to wonder if it’s healthy for a teenager to be so intensely committed to a five-year plan, but there’s no shutting her up about it. I probably wouldn’t mind if she wasn’t …

Ever Changing Spaces

You know, I think I’ve had quite enough of modern kitchen design for one lifetime, and that lifetime has currently been on the go for four-hundred years and counting. The royal family only kept me on the payroll because I was so very good at transfiguration spells, and they wanted stuff done every single day. …

Now, Conveyancing Lawyers

The balustrading was nice. People do seem to be happy. Next, I’m considering having S-Type Android E/N, codename ‘Sandrine’, announce that we are all moving to a new office, and that she needs recommendations for the best conveyancing firm Highett has to offer. Getting people on your side is more than simply giving them what …

Too Many Yachts

Since everyone is sharing the last words of their dear departed on Tweeter with the hashtag #famlastwords, I might as well share mine. This was my great-uncle four times removed, who I was slightly closer to than usual since he would always send me yachts on my birthday. Like, every year. I’d have to go …

Too Much Tint

Anyway, the maximum amount of tint was too much indeed, because we had to have the lights on all day, every day. I appreciate the work of the various commercial tinting companies Melbourne has in its domain, but I’m honestly not sure why some of them even offer that ultra-ultra-dark option. I just can’t really see what …

Merry Car Troubles

It was pretty difficult for some of them, let me tell you! Poor Niall couldn’t remember a single thing about driving after operating his miniature scouting submarine for so long. The show followed his trials and tribulations as he tried to book in for car mechanic services. Northcote, where he used to live, was completely alien …
