I just had the final inspection on my rental property yesterday and it totally sucked. Prior to moving into the bloody place, I hadn't rented for a long, long time. I hope - after yesterday - that I never have to rent again. The rental chick met me at the house and proceeded to go... Continue Reading →
Ever felt like this in the morning?
It took me an eternity to get dressed for work yesterday. Everything I tried on looked TERRIBLE and was discarded into a growing heap on my bed.

You know you’ve lost the plot when …
... You drive the car to work in driving rain and park in a two-hour metre zone and feed the parking metre an exhorbitant pile of gold coins because you are worried about the puppy and want to check on him at lunchtime.

My week: I can hear violins starting to play
Last week was manic and a little overwhelming. I'm not sure I could live like an A-lister - Tourism NSW are promoting the ACCTA Awards next week and sent me on a whole lot of celebrity-style adventures - unless I had a whole staff to keep the mundane bits of life running while I swanned...

Diagnosis: TMB Syndrome
It's funny how guilty I've felt about living like an A-lister this week. Every time I post something on Instagram or the blog or Facebook I get all squirmy and uncomfortable. Bloody show-off. I wonder if that's how ACTUAL A-listers feel? But on with the show ... and yesterday was yet another crazily surreal one.... Continue Reading →
Why does everyone look so worried?
