Panic and Plumbing
Three more sleeps til I'm out of here. I'm waking every morning with images of lists of things to do floating in my head. Running away is overated.....so much to do not to mention packing and plumbing disasters to boot. Fun fun fun.
I'm sure once we are on that plane to wonderful, wonderful New Zealand it will all be like a pleasant blur....
I am a print and digital journalist who has written for a wide range of publications including The Sun-Herald and The Sunday Telegraph.
For the last six years I've worked as a senior journalist for CHOICE, focussing on consumer affairs where I've investigated issues from chemical regulation to cosmetic surgery.
Of late I can be found doing TV and radio on behalf of CHOICE or in my alter ego The Guilty Mum on the ABC's show The Checkout.
My last job before starting at CHOICE was a stint in the Bolivian jungle working with monkeys and walking a tantrum prone Ocelot, which was excellent training in how to wrangle my kids at the supermarket.
