As of last week, I became the new owner of a second hand BMW and it is a dream come true. Ever since I was a young boy, I’ve dreamed of owning a European car, and by my mid twenties, I have successfully saved up enough money to make that dream a reality. I now …

Comforting Gas Heater

When my eldest daughter was in grade five, my family and I uprooted our life in Melbourne to move to Canberra for my husband’s new job. Moving four daughters, two dogs and ourselves to another state was a mammoth and at times, sad task, but we did it and have lived in Canberra ever since. …

Despise My Job

I’ve worked the same job for the past thirty years. It’s been an absolute slog and I have probably enjoyed about a day’s worth of work in total. To say I hate my job is an understatement. I get absolutely no pleasure from my work and I don’t see the point of the job I …
