Aunty for love.

The other day I was digging about, pretending to spring clean. I found these glorious images drawn by my friend’s little girl. Let’s call the friend Tamara, and let’s call her little girl Davida. The drawings were done when she was five. So she was little then, and she is always likely to be little […]

Race Bombing

I am now considered somewhat of a phantom owner in the racing fraternity. I don’t own a horse, nor do I lease one but my friends do and I love going to watch.  It’s perfect – no fees, no trainer stories, no bets (not mandatory ones anyway) and all the fun. My friends are very […]

I want a puppy…

I’ve been saying this for years, and no doubt, I’ll be saying it for a few more…but how can one resist? Just look at some of my favorite furry friends. Monty who loves yoga …Gigi, a pretty girl who loves to dress up and Lilly, oh don’t be fooled that little sweety is not napping […]

Creating my own moments.

Aunty Darling here. I am at the local outdoor pool at the ungodly* hour of 8.00am. Thanks to the pool’s digital display of time and temperature, I know it is 9 oC but I do believe the wind chill factor has taken it down to -5 oC. My only company are two fat ducks. I’m […]

Aunty London

One day I was meeting Aunty London for lunch, great friend of The Aunties and an aunty in her own right. It was bloody freezing, so I left my woollies on. Red bobbly cardy, purple striped woolen hat. You get the look. Unloved and really couldn’t care. And then a vision entered the Harvest cafe! […]

Frock Race

I regularly peruse the Salvo’s shop in North Melbourne, just to kill some time before meeting a couple of gal-pals. Anyway, just before one of Melbourne’s fabulous racing seasons, I was in the above mentioned shop and happened across a cool looking, vintage, navy blue, crepe frock, with a David Jones label. “Great frock for […]

Second Adulthood

Aunty Verve here. I think I am feeling younger. I’m sure of it! Sure at times more tired and a bit slower to recover, but definitely FEELING younger and with an enthusiasm to match.  A second adulthood.  Is that what happens once you are in your prime? I always dreamt of living in the city […]

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? […]

The Incident

We had a little incident over the Christmas break. Stephen’s nephew, his wife and 4 children came for a visit.  They came for dinner and as it was rather hot, Stephen thought it would be a good idea for the littlies to have a swim. Sounds great doesn’t it? However the incident showed that NONE […]

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."
