The Cool Bride

I have always dreamed of getting married in Canberra. I spent the summers of my youth playing along the wonderful beaches, on and off Dad’s yacht and begging for one more ice cream from my favourite little beachside vendor. Life in the city always seemed so fast and stressful compared to the dreamscape of Canberra. …

View to Renovations

Talk about a loo with a view. My bathroom window is really something else, and I do my best to avoid taking it for granted. Each day, I make sure to take in the vista and remind myself that everyone has such an outlook from their porcelain throne. In the course of doing this, however, …

My Own Cruiser

Today I was thinking so very hard on the train that I almost spilled my coffee over the person next to me. I think I just went so deep into thought that I lost motor control, looked down and I was this close to just pouring it onto their lap. They were giving me a …

Finally Reunited

See, my Dad LOVES Christmas, everything about it, from Santa to the elves and everything in between. One time my sister and I thought it’d be fun to replace the words to ‘Angels We Have Heard on High’ with ones of our own creation: ‘Angles we have seen on high, 3.14 equals Pi’. Dad became …

Need New Salon

Like, for real, Vicki is the-actual-worst. You actually have no idea, and she has no idea, and it’s just like a sad little circle where everyone needs to look at themselves in the mirror, for once. But like, if Vicki ever look at herself in the mirror she’d probably turn to stone, so yeah…maybe skip …

Great Life, Derrick

There’s one thing that makes the work day go faster, and that’s Christmas music. Not trashy stuff you hear in shopping centres, though. I mean choirs singing in a cathedral, or kids from some prestigious academy. That’s the only thing that really make the hours tick by at this stage, because it’s way too close …

Just Christmas Gluttony

But there’s another big problem, and that’s that it’s Christmas, and that is a time for very large meals. I only have one option, and that’s to eat less. HA. A little Christmas humour. No, I’m buying a portable oxygen chamber. Melbourne seems to be at the forefront of this small medical miracle.  In short, I …

Bathing Bliss

If there’s one thing I love, it’s the feeling of stepping into a really beautiful bathroom. Call me crazy, but when all the right elements come together, the result can be like a soothing cocoon of tranquillity, cooling and harmonious to all the sense. On the flip side, entering a badly designed bathroom can be …

Me and the Warehouse

Working for the work supplies repository is a lot more like guarding Aladdin’s cave than I thought it’d be. I know some people come here to either rent equipment or (more often) store it for the months when it’s not in use, but it’s incredibly quiet when someone isn’t doing that. I’m sitting here at …
