Gripped by crisis, mostly of the middle-aged variety

My ex thoughtfully forwarded me an email from yesterday that announced:
The award winning series Avalon Now is back for Season 2.
At the heart of Sydney’s idyllic Northern Beaches lies the sunny suburb of Avalon, where attractive, socially-progressive families cruise through life in four-wheel drives. But beneath the sunny veneer the suburb is gripped by crisis, mostly of the mid-life variety.
 Prosecco or Champagne? How does this Tinder thing work? And what if the year’s biggest social event – The White Party – is a flop?
Sit back, grab a cronut and a kale shake and indulge.

I was quite excited by the email, as Avalon Now is very funny. Also, Avalon itself is my new second home, I’m coming out the other side of a mid-life crisis, I recently tried my first cronut and I quite fancy a prosecco … from the Avalon bottlo, served by my eldest daughter’s school friend’s dad, who is played in Avalon Now by Richard Roxborough because the world is too small.

I also thought the world was a funny old place to have my ex sending me emails about YouTube shows based in my new second home. But cheers!

DD doesn’t think Avalon Now represents Avalon at all … those closest to something usually don’t … fortunately, however, he doesn’t wear a striped shirt, sip kale shakes or have a four-wheel drive. He’s more your hoodie, flat white and beaten up Saab kinda guy.

Gags aside, Avalon is quite gorgeous and not really like the show … other than the residents being overly fond of striped shirts.

I’m starting to think I could quite happily live there if I won the lottery and didn’t have a job and kids’ schools that were 45 minutes away from it.

If I DID win the lottery, I’d quit my job and buy something like this …

Well, it’s actually at Newport, but it’s winter and stock is low.

And there’s still the issue of how the kids would get to school.

Anyways, I’m off to have a giggle at episode 2 of season 2 of Avalon Now.

Have a great day!

  1. My dad lived down at newport for 2 years after we left school… its probably changed a bit, but he luvd the early morning swim b4 work being not even 5 mins from the beach… dont think he was in to sipping anything, tho, even coffee… & it was a little 1 brm flat under a house, so no view…
    Just think what i could have got up to if id had an inclination to go down & stay there when he was home on weekends??
