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…

Ageing Graciously vs Cosmetic Surgery

  We have all seen them.  Those women of a certain age with their pumped up breasts sitting very perkily on their leathery skinned chests!  Women who have lips so full of dermal filler that they resemble Daffy Duck or a big trout !  They have the bulging fat on their thighs and stomach lipo-sucked…

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…

Why are Women so Bitchy?

We all know that we can’t get on with everyone due to personality traits and cultural or religious differences.  But what I can’t understand is why women burn one another so viciously and without conscious?  Aren’t we letting down the sisterhood on some level? Shouldn’t we all be banding together for the better good of…

WAS I EVER ME?

My mum said to me the other day that during her early married life with my father she was trying to be someone she wasn’t. When I asked her what she was trying to be, she replied “like your Dad’s sisters”, (my four paternal aunts).  In other words, a fabulous cook, housewife and mother who was immaculately groomed…

The Invisible Age

    My girlfriends and I very often feel like we are invisible, undesirable objects who have no further use to society. Have you ever tried to get a decent job after the age of 50, particularly when you have spent the last 20 years juggling the demands of being a wife and mother and…
