Furnishings for the Big Expo

Good grief, sometimes it feels like this golfing expo is never going to arrive. We’ve been planning it for…gosh, it can’t be more than a year, or the expo would’ve been over and done with. Feels like years though. Not that I mind having something to do, mind you. Ever since Harold went off to […]

Conveyancing, Serious Business

More people need to understand that property conveyancing is no laughing matter. I won’t have those smug estate agents telling us we’re not a necessary part of the whole property exchange experience, especially when our industry is growing as fast as theirs. Mouthy people, for real. Just because they get to wear colourful blazers, travel around […]

Learning from the Common Folk

It wasn’t what I was expecting from the event, but I enjoyed myself immensely all the same. Australia has very few old, rich families, but I’m proudly one of them. We made our living in the 1800s, building ships that would transport the rabble back and forth across the great oceans. My greatest regret is […]

The Sultry Sound of Needles

I didn’t exactly choose the easiest career, but I feel like it’s one of the most rewarding in the end. Every single day brings new challenges as a custom scenario music producer, but the reward is in the finished product. It’s why I learned to play 27 instruments in the first place: there is never […]

Design Disasters, But…Not Really?

I really hope this TV show pans out. I just went and changed my name for it and everything, so you can’t say I’m not committed. Two hours sitting in Centrelink, just so I could hand a form to a lady who gave me the most judgemental look as she made a small note on […]

A Property Conveyancer No More

Is it really right to force a person to take over the family business? I mean, it’s the twenty first century, I should rights. There are many more careers than there used to be, and with the way education is, you can pretty much have your pick of the bunch. It’s not the 1800’s, when […]

Talkin’ Bout Hair

It has been said that I’m not the girliest of girls. Like, I’m not manly either, so I guess that just makes me…a girl. A regular girl. Woman, even. Actually, the release of Wondrous Female has got me thinking a lot about femininity and all the people getting up in arms on one side of […]

Play Centre Visits Are Tiring ME Out

Having children means making sacrifices. That’s what the manual said, and I always read the manual before I do anything. This one was conveniently titled Children: Making Sacrifices, and it went on at length about how when you have a baby, suddenly your life is not your own and all your efforts have to be […]

Mass flushing causes blocked sewers in Melbourne

An epidemic of children flushing their toothbrushes has gripped Melbourne due to a popular children’s television show. To date there have been thirty reports of blocked sewers. Melbourne parents have taken to Facebook to express anger at the network for airing the episode. The mass flushing occurred following the airing of a television show in […]

My Forward-Thinking Thoughts on Pests

Right now, there’s a complex internet war raging over an incredibly important subject. No, it’s not that new American president…that pales in comparison to the magnitude of this issue. Melbourne is currently dealing with two major schools of thought: that of pest controllers and homeowners, and the views of the Melbourne Society for the Prevention […]
