Tired and wired

Attending the 2020 Australian Drinks Awards virtually from my living room yesterday wasn't quite as glamorous as swanning around a ballroom last year. For a start, I was wearing ugg boots this time around. And one of the dogs started violently retching and vomiting behind me during the ceremony. Fortunately I had a glass of... Continue Reading →

Love hurts

I thought I was heading back to the vet yesterday because Bilbo wouldn't stop shaking. I was worried he was in pain, but I’m pretty sure it was just anxiety over the builders' nail gun. I don't blame him, it's been intense on the noise front. I had the shaking dog on my lap for... Continue Reading →

Not the day for it

Mumbrella’s Tim Burrowes has written a scathing assessment... Continue Reading →

So fickle

I was trying to have a video call with my boss yesterday when the builders (Elvis was joined by Tom, which gave him with someone to swear loudly at again) both knocked on my door twice, once each to use the bathroom and once each to use the microwave to heat leftovers up for their...

Big bangs

Elvis returned to the building yesterday to continue working on my deck and didn't swear at all ... I think it was a combination of not having any builder mates to swear with plus the realization there were young children gamboling in the garden next door. It must have taken a lot of restraint for... Continue Reading →
