Has food replaced sex in my life?

  Last night I had this dream.  I was sitting at a candlelit table for two with a gorgeous man and he was massaging my foot under the table.  But I was paying no attention to him – I was salivating over a plate of moreton bay bugs with a side of aioli and kipfler…

Do I Look Like ‘The Maid’?

  I must have been born with a dishcloth in one hand and a shopping trolley in the other! As all I seem to do in my place of abode is wipe the kitchen benches down, clean up spills/crumbs/sauces and duck down to the local Supermarket to get some more milk/fruit/bread! I am almost certain…

Living in the Seventies

Musically it all happened for me in 1974. I was 17 and about to finish school and go out into the workforce as an office clerk. I was listening to Stevie Wright sing Evie on the radio and I was wanting to be that girl:  “Evie let your hair hang down” and : “You’ve got…

Living in Cougar Town!

  I occasionally go on girl’s nights out with my girlfriends which usually consists of a nice dinner out at a restaurant or a quiet drink somewhere (with lots of incessant chatter!)   Increasingly we see women, particularly in bars, dressed up to the nines in their push-up bras and sexy little mini-skirts flirtatiously parading around…

Living the Byron Bay Lifestyle

  Having just returned from a week away in our caravan at a pretty little spot near Byron Bay called Broken Head, I got to thinking how I love the laidback lifestyle of this coastal area in Northern NSW.  It is simply like stepping back in time to the 1970’s when the flower people and…
