A star team will always beat a team of stars

I wonder how Matt Giteau and James O’Connor feel right now. It’s no secret I’m not (and never have been) Quade Cooper’s biggest fan. As a matter of fact I’m right at the top of the list of people who think he’s the most overrated player around. And I can guarantee after the last few …

Do young women really need botox?

I’ve been catching up on all the Brownlow medal information. A bit late, I know. What can I say except I don’t follow AFL and I don’t live in Melbourne. My major interest – as with a lot of women I’m sure – is what all the WAGs are wearing. The big surprise this year …

We’re turning into grey nomads – and it’s not a bad thing

Finally, we’ve had one of those hot, still days you get in the outback. So, like all sensible people, we spent a couple of lazy hours by the pool at the Normanton caravan park. And it was good!

Who you meet on the road less travelled

Travelling off the beaten track there are a few different types of people you meet. All equally as interesting. First there’s those I expected to meet. The “bushies”. Like the couple we met the other night and shared their campfire. They travel a lot and have done so for years.

Ocean kayaking – a true show of love

If you want a true test of a relationship, try ocean kayaking together. In a double kayak. It sounded as if it would be a good idea. Kayaking around Cape Tribulation, getting a close view of the marine life. I’ve been kayaking before. With my children along the Noosa River. It’s beautiful. You take your …

It doesn’t take much to pack up a roof top tent

I’m sitting under the palm trees in the caravan park in Cairns, laptop plugged straight into the power outlet, catching up on some emails while I wait for everybody to pack up.

The worst winter in Cairns for years … no jacket required

We’ve arrived in Cairns during the coldest winter they’ve had for years. So cold in fact that last night I nearly had to put a jacket on. I would have put one on except I was wearing a new top and had to show it off.  The back is a big embroidered butterfly with cut …

On waxing and feminism

I have a Brazilian. And I’m a feminist Not an easy admission to make (the Brazilian, not the feminist bit) on the internet when it could go out to millions of people (god I hope my children don’t read this!),  but one brought about by reading yet another ‘feminist’ article on why Brazilian waxing is …

It’s winter and I’m cold

I’m living with the heater nazi. Doc, as I’m my partner will henceforth be known in this blog, doesn’t feel the cold, so doesn’t think anybody else should either. Everytime I put the heater on he gives me “that” look. The one where he’s desperately trying not to roll his eyes. Though sometimes he can’t …

Snatch straps and other things that aren’t as dirty as they sound

We’re preparing for our next big trip away. So today we’ve been out shopping – browsing 4WD and camping shops. And e-bay of course. Now, I’m a novice when it comes to 4WDing and camping. My type of shopping is usually very different. Last week my sister was in town, so we went for a …
