The Arts Centre Melbourne’s new Winter season begins this year on July 26. Running for three weeks, there will be over a dozen events featuring theatre, dance, puppetry, music and digital installations. The theme this year is Arts, science and technology. The Arts Centre chose the theme because: We look to science and technology to [...]
I like mowing the lawn. I get satisfaction from the menial labour it entails – getting the edges straight, the repetitive emptying of clippings and sweeping away the trails of grass. I’m not a neat mower. My mantra is ‘ get the job done’ and ‘avoid wasp nests’ (my brother-in-law and husband have both agitated [...]
The Melbourne Food & Wine Festival kicks off this Friday and to celebrate I’m giving away a double pass to one of the festival highlights Put Victoria On Your Table (PVOYT) Cellar Door and Artisan Market. Held at the Como House and Gardens in South Yarra and sponsored by IGA Victoria, there will be some [...]
Originally conceived in Paris in 2002, White Night or Nuit Blanche is not translation for THERE ARE TOO MANY PEOPLE!! but a dusk ’til dawn showcase of art and culture. Catching a train into an estimated crowd of 100,000 thousand people, only to discover it was closer to 300,000 thousand was a little eye-watering but [...]
Having a mortgage is a lot of fun in Melbourne. Sometimes when you complain about it, people tell you to move further out or stop buying plasma televisions and that’s really helpful. I’ve been trying to devise different ways to entertain my kids for free lately because quite frankly once the mortgage repayment comes out [...]
This Saturday I’ll be attending the Big Day Out in Melbourne and I’m frightened Aunty Em. The last Big Day Out I attended was in 1999 and things were already beginning to change. Fifty-two thousand people is a sold-out show now – that is a lot of bodies – and something tells me we’re not [...]
If blogging gave me nothing but free tickets to art gigs in Melbourne, I’d be a happy clam. I love my home town and its penchant for weird and wonderful and hidden and tasty and hip. The summer series at the Arts Centre is currently home to some great shows. I’ll be stalking checking out [...]
I haven’t always cooked with fennel. Growing up in a Caucasian household, it wasn’t a regular feature at the dinner table but I knew of its existence. It wasn’t until I became friends with an Italian/Australian friend in high school that fennel’s connection with Mediterranean cuisine revealed itself. I’d like to tell you about the [...]
The ProBlogger Training Event kicks off on Friday. My organisation skills have so far extended to trying to hide breath mints from a three year old and deciding whether to take a laptop over an iPad. So far I have the below items and a migraine from working out the logistics of storing a dress [...]
Because I am a stay at home parent, student, wife, cleaner, chef and washing woman – things such as the mail delivery really get me hot. I’ve been known to walk up and down the driveway several times when I’m expecting anything stamped USPS despite visualising the neighbours across the road muttering “get a life” [...]
