‘Braking’ the rules

It’s tough being a parent sometimes. You raise these people and then eventually they get to a certain age and they just don’t need you anymore. My son is twenty-one now and he’s working full-time and has his license. He hasn’t bought his own car just yet but that’s partly our influence as we have …

I Hate Fishing

Fishing… it seems to be the pastime of choice for hundreds of thousands of Australians.

Ballerina Feet

Ballet is one of the most difficult and beautiful sports known to man. The physical strength and exertion ballet requires means it’s not for the faint hearted. I have been a ballet dancer for the past fifteen years and it has taken a serious toll on my body. As an adolescent, I was obviously going …

Fourth Wheeling

This morning I woke up and got ready for the day ahead. It was going to be a big one, as I had an appointment at the local mechanic, followed by a big date at my favourite restaurant. I put on my best jeans, hopped into my four-wheel drive and began my adventure of the …

Your New Pool Fence

Stained glass is due for a comeback – I’m pretty darned sure of it, and I’m rarely wrong on this sort of thing. More to the point, though, it’s about to blow up in the realm of pool fencing. See, pool fences have traditionally been a utilitarian thing, and not something to be whimsical about. …
