Sending a side-eye to Brisbane City Council.

In terms of ‘wokeness’, also known in conventional circles as respecting cultural diversity, flying a flag is pretty much level 1 on the Richter Scale. Some institutions fly their flags, say the acknowledgments and wear the pins and are still hopeless. But hey, at least they’re giving it a crack.

The brain fog

Shaping a new normal … up early on a Saturday morning

When my mum was the age I am now, she started going to the gym. She really enjoyed it. Despite already having a physical job – she was a school cleaner – she loved doing weights and cardio. I was in my early twenties and a few times I’d go along with her, but I wasn’t into it – probably too busy with my new boyfriend – and looking back didn’t really support her journey.

My first Tiddas concert

Last night was one of the best nights I’ve had. For the first time – YES! THE FIRST TIME – I saw the Tiddas perform. They performed as part of a special tour with Archie Roach releasing the album … They performed back-up for him for the majority of the concert and were fantastic, and then they did a solo set of Inside My Kitchen and Anthem.

An afternoon of Grace & Style

I grew up with a very practical Mum – loving, caring, hardworking, realistic, no frills. I don’t really remember her as someone who would wear a lot of make-up or jewellery. She was a school cleaner for most of my childhood so she spent most of the time in ‘serviceable’ (her words) clothes.

On needing to be outside …

Often, to function, my brain needs my body to be outside and my feet on grass.
