My amazing life thanks to the beauty salon

I’m married to a wealthy stockbroker, my darling Kyle, who is my love and life. His well paying job also means that I can spend my days relaxing, rather than work all the time like most people are forced to do. But don’t get me wrong, I’m not a slacker. I ...

How I overcame the nightmare at my feet

A structural problem to my toes that developed when I was a 23 year old flared and fluctuated through the years. In my early thirties, this became unbearable. I found out through visiting a specialist that I had a condition, in which my toes were subject ...

Probably the worst thing about working at the docks are the pirates. No, not actual, criminal pirates...I'm talking about the cosplayers. I don't really know how they have so much time on their hands- must be arts students or something- but anyway, the ...

My retiring parents are putting clean energy first

“Mum, seriously, the smartest thing you can do if we are going to talk about energy bills is to get solar panels up there. As in, yesterday.” Mum looks at me like I’ve caught mixo. For someone who used to be a bit of an environmental mover and shaker, ...
