My Awesome Plan

Oh, I love how deviously evil I am. Flying monkey attack! What will I come up with next? That’s right, Dr Dark McBane is behind the monkeys plaguing Melbourne streets at the moment. Although I stole the idea from some random person’s blog, it was only my genius mind that could make it come to …

Bandit Captured

The Glass Smashing Bandit sat beside me, his arms bound with rope. Thankfully he was starting to wake up. Ahead of us, the strange fanatics gathered around in a circle. There were six of them all up. They made space in the centre, and a broad figure in a dark cloak walked forward. “What do …

Soup-erior Recipe?

Lou-Ellen’s soup night was the talk of the town again. It’s getting to the point where I can’t very well keep up the facade that I’m not curious, but it’s essential that I don’t let on. I mean, I don’t want anyone thinking I’m desperate for an invite because I’m really not. Still, from what …

The Sabotaged Car

It was the end of a long day at the office when I got the call. A shrill voice met my ear as I put the phone up against it. I recognised the caller immediately. Mrs Avery. She was convinced that her husband had been murdered two weeks ago, in what was supposedly a car …

Travelling Green

People sure do get over things quickly in this city. I guess they have a lot going on, but since no one yet knows who the Night Valkyrie is, you would think that it’d still be big news. Last night she busted a huge drug smuggling operation by herself, piston-punching the criminals into submission for …

Spook-tique Hotel

I just got back from a trip to Bulgaria, where I stayed in the eeriest place I’ve been in. It was an old castle converted into an avant garde ‘experience hotel’, complete with complimentary vials of oddly luminescent liquid delivered to the room each evening – I assumed it was some kind of local hooch, …

Everyone’s A Designer

Everyone thinks they know what interior design is about… it’s just avant-garde lamps, cushions and throw rugs, right? Wrong. That’s interior decoration, and even within that realm it’s a bit of a reductive imagining of what’s involved. No, interior design is concerned with everything from the basic bones of a room – its built structure …

Aurora Bore-ealis

Public service announcement: cold is not a competition. What I mean is, having lived somewhere closer to one of Earth’s poles than Melbourne does not make you superior. Many people find winter here to be a challenge, and whether or not you’ve ‘experienced worse’ doesn’t have a shred of bearing on that.   Here’s the thing: …

Renovation Situation

It’s about time these renovations got underway – we’ve been planning them long enough! I really want to get this cabin looking ship-shape by summer, by which I mean ready to host the influx of assorted friends and family members that are bound to start streaming in by November. I love having them over and …

Unstoppably Outlandish

Being the mother of twins is strange. Artemis and Athena started out so similar, and in many ways they still are very much alike. But they also diverged somewhere along the line. From memory, it started when Athena’s competitive choir audition was rejected, while Artemis was allowed in, despite their singing voices being virtually indistinguishable.  …
