Looking to buy

Well, the day has come. I am officially so sick of relying on my parents to give me lifts. They say they don’t mind doing it but honestly, every single time they drive me there is always some sort of drama. On the drive home from cricket training, my dad made a sarcastic comment and …

Steel and Seinfeld

In my spare time, I really get a kick out of building things out of steel. I used to get steel scraps and use them to build random figurines and statues. I remember I once made a life-sized steel statue of Jerry. I called it ‘Jerry Steelfield’. I know, the pun is terrible. This statue …

Painting it solo

I get funny looks when I say that I’m a single mum by choice. Some people feel sorry for me and think I’ve had a man walk out on me and some think I’m a widower while other times I’m met with judgy looks. I’ve even been scolded before by a woman who believed that …

Girl dramas

One thing I always could not wait for as a teenager was to move out of my parents’ house and move into a large house with all my friends. It was great for the first few months as it was a ‘girls only’ house with no parental rules, and no stinky little brothers. It was …

Beach caused fungus

I am one of those people who get really squeamish when there’s a foot near me. I don’t know why I find feet so repulsive. We all have them and most of the time we’re always in socks or shoes. So what is it that makes feet so gross? I think it might be because …

There are so many mechanics around. I actually can’t believe how many mechanics there are local to me. Not all of them are the same quality, however. Some have studied cars and automobile work for decades, some are very talented apprentices with a love for cars, others have just given themselves the title of mechanic …

Symbolic Earrings

I called my grandma last night and told her about the sun moon earrings that I lost. I told her how much I love them and how upset I am that they’re gone, and she sounded pretty upset too. She said that they were the first pair of earrings she ever made for me and …

Dynamic Duo

There’s never a dull moment here at Cafe Mint. If it’s not Benny Brewster spilling his coffee all over the floor in a bout of over-enthusiastic gossiping, it’s Candice Merriman’s labrador sneaking several cream buns out of the display cabinet. Then, of course, there’s the Brewster twins, who leave a trail of chaos wherever they …

Mornington Tyre Explosion

I’m obsessed with the beach. Every day over thirty I call into work sick and drive down to Cambridge for the day. No one at work has ever commented on this, so I think I’m flying under the radar for now. I plan on doing this for many many years, and so I hope that …

Yay, Invisalign Braces!

I want to start a modelling career once I turn eighteen. I’ve been told by countless people that I have stunning features and the height to go along with it, but the only problem is that my teeth really aren’t very nice. This really detracts from my entire face, and I want to have my …
