Going fishing with my mates is my favourite thing to do. There’s no doubt about it. Spending time on the open water with my absolute best friends just fills me with joy. It’s like there’s nothing else in the world when we’re all out there together. We just spend time together drinking beers, attempting to catch fish and laughing at the friend who catches the least. It truly is one of the best things in life. Back when we realised our love of fishing was more than just a phase, we all decided to pitch in money so that we could all own our own boat. As such, we all part own a boat and we all spend our weekends[…]

Hello and welcome to the final twenty minutes of the Travelling Car Competition for 2021. I’m Moe Bile, and I’m here this afternoon with my co-host Mike Anic. Mike was feeling a bit out of sorts before the ad break, but after some water and inhaling some car fumes, he’s feeling better than effort. Mmm, yeah I’m feeling really good. Thanks, Moe. Uh, no worries Mike. Anyway, we’ve got a clear frontrunner this afternoon. It looks like Aidan is just moments away from taking out the hardest leg of the Traveling Car Competition. This man is an absolute trooper. I have a feeling people will be asking Aidan to do a sneaky car service in Hobart for cash on the[…]

It’s party season, which means I’ve been wearing heels a lot. They always say that beauty is pain, and I do agree with them, but wow I’m in a lot of pain. It’s just hard because I want to look good when I’m out and I want my legs to be elongated, but it’s actually really coming at the detriment of my feet and ankles.  Seeing as the silly season has just begun, I’ve got at least three more months of wearing heels every weekend. I’ve decided to go to a foot specialist to discuss my options over the next few months because I don’t want to permanently damage my feet, but I also don’t want to be the only[…]

Ever since I started working from home, I’ve been going on runs on my lunch break. This has been fantastic for my fitness, mental health and my productivity at work. It was something that I was never able to do whilst working in the office, for the obvious reasons such as there were no shower facilities and I was wearing heels every day. But now I’m able to dress comfortably, wear my funny-looking runners that fit my adult orthotics, and shower all before lunch ends. It’s been a godsend.  I’m also really lucky to live in Cheltenham which is very close to the beach. I have three regular running routes that I take depending on how busy work is and[…]

I’ve recently been doing an internship with an interior design company. I actually applied for the internship quite a while ago but a spot only just came up and I decided it would be a good way to find out more about the industry before I applied for permanent roles. The internship was four weeks and each week I would spend in a different department. I have just finished my first week with the designer bathroom department, I have been helping design modern practical bathrooms.  I’ve been along to a few sites, mainly checking out the kitchen renovation scene in the Bayside area to see the kind of work the company does. I suppose kitchens aren’t the first thing that[…]

We all have tiny secrets that are better off staying that way. I, as a mother of three, have plenty. They are all harmless and it wouldn’t matter if anyone found out, but it would also just be easier if no one did. One of my harmless secrets for example, is that two years ago when I started bringing my children into the office, I had commercial interior glass tinting done on the room that they’d be spending most of their time in. It was easy to do because I’m the owner of the business and the office. I did it because I didn’t want my employees to see how unruly my kids can be. I have to keep up[…]

Welcome back to the account of my journeying through Ringwood, the town with the friendliest people in Australia. Let’s move onto Thursday. What will I get up to next? Thursday: As I previously mentioned, I wanted to check out the swimming pool, which turned out to be really great. I took the children of the Trish family, who had a fun time. Then I returned to the local shopping centre, where I bought lots of things at a great price. Since I am pretending to be homeless, however, I had to put all the stuff I bought in my car. I can’t see that becoming a problem at all, though. Friday: Well, I got kicked out of the Trish home.[…]

This weekend we had my mother-in-law staying with us because she was having her kitchen renovated. I didn’t like to point out that she did have two other fully functioning kitchens at her house. Denise stayed with us on Friday and Saturday night, mainly as a precaution should her entire plumbing system go down, an extremely unlikely outcome of a simple kitchen renovation. Melbourne summers have not been kind to her skin, and as her years have advanced, Denise has taken to making adjustments to her already very lovely house. Last weekend she had the painters in to fix up the top coat around the door frames, the difference is wholly unnoticeable. Every now and again her penchant for renovations[…]

It’s really frustrating when people question your knowledge of things. My daughter’s car was broken the other day. I came around to fix it but she started saying all this crazy stuff like “You’re not a professionally trained mechanic” and “I need to get a log book service to keep the car’s resale value high”. Like, what are you talking about, woman? I’ve been servicing her car for her for years, ever since I returned from the moon, and never heard a word of complaint about it. When I mentioned this to her, she said that she does complain about it, but I delete her voicemails every time. I’ve never heard anything so preposterous! I tell you, we couldn’t afford[…]

Do you know what my favourite thing about space was? Not having glass break. With low gravity, if you dropped a window it would just slowly float toward the ground and land there safely. On Earth, you get no such mercy. Drop a window and it smashes into a million tiny pieces which will take you an hour to clean up. It’s infuriating. I’ve wasted so much money on glass objects that were destroyed by the gravitational pull of our planet. Maybe I’m just clumsy, sure, but I’m certain I wouldn’t be in this situation if I still lived on the moon. Damn you, BASA, for recalling me from my space mission! Now I’ve got to find a business for[…]
