I bought a racehorse

Friday nights, end of the working week and enjoying a well earned Savvy B with our friends and owners of the pub, the Brougham Arms Hotel in Bendigo. The Broughie is very popular and well renowned for their good food, wine and hospitality. So here we were talking about anything and everything when one of […]

The Pied Piper of Bali

Bali is a wonderful place, the people friendly, weather fantastic and it was fabulous to have time to spend with the aunties, outlaw aunties and nieces. I’ll treasure the memories of this holiday for a long time. So Aunty Verve? In Bali? She’s clever, professional and always tries to do the right thing – see? […]

Game on molls…

Almost 35 years on from its premiere, the girls from ‘Prisoner’ are still breaking records, if not the occasional face. Known to many in Oz as ‘Prisoner’, family in the UK report it was called ‘Cell Block H’. Either way it became a cult classic, because chicks being bad in jail in Australia in the […]

Accidental Rebel

Aunty Verve here. I generally (& genuinely) always try to do the right thing, play by the rules, be the diplomat and peacekeeper but sometimes things happen outside of your control, no matter how hard you try. After scoring tickets into the Makybe Diva marquis for Derby Day at Flemington Racecourse, of course I felt […]

What was I thinking?

So here I am at the airport. It’s 1.31am and my flight leaves at 3.35am. And I’ve got no-one to play with. Figure a drink is in order. I’m flying to Dubai, what fun. However I am reminded of my first trip. What horror. Talk about learning the customs real fast. Picture this: alone, first time […]

Messages of Love

The girls would love to share with you the messages that arrived (some in time, some too late), to screen at ‘Tiddling Tales’. Starting with darling nibling Fagyn and Jordy, to honourary Aunty Walt, Louise and Marita from Bangers (Bangkok), and beautiful cousins Paula and Sarah. Thanks for going to such an effort for The […]

The Sunday After

For the benefit of those you who didn’t attend “Tiddling Tales with The Aunties” this weekend gone, those present were given a clear unambiguous warning about not finding yourself alone with Aunty Lush. Not for any reason! Not for any purpose! Not if you want to maintain your decorum. This is a tale of warning […]

Our Aunty Philomenia

Aunty Phil is a funny thing. She has been known to dance on tables, drink a crowd under the table, and more, just usually not at once. Though no one knew until a visit from nibling Fagyn resulted in these pictures of a woman insanely playing the tin whistle while hula hooping….

Dear Aunty Lovers

Dear Aunty lovers, Salutations. It’s the Valet here, with an irresistible invitation. arcade-card-mack-sennett-comedies-five-women-with-hats-covered-with-straw-1920s at http://chuckman1920sarcadecardbeauties.wordpress.com The girls are requesting the pleasure of your company at what they are calling ‘Tiddling Tales with The Aunties”. Between you and me, we know it’s going to be some frivolous fun, however we all need to get in on […]

I do love food…

How much do I love food, especially when away from home? I can’t think of any better time than to try local produce; it’s fresher, good for the local economy and creates fodder for stories. Our mother had a saying when dining out; ‘don’t order anything from the menu, that you can cook at home’; […]

Mum Sayings

"I wonder what the poor people are doing?"
"Did you see anyone you liked better than yourself?"
"I've had that new coat forever."
"Go on, you deserve it."

Yummy Aunties…
