Finding my calling

I really don’t like my job. And it’s not that I don’t like where I work, or the repetitiveness of it all, or I hate my boss or anything like that. It’s that I genuinely, truly, deep down in my soul, hate my chosen career. I messed up, okay? I was a kid, they said […]

A gradual leap of faith

I’m going to be honest here. Really honest. Probably more honest with myself than I have been in a long, long time. The truth of the matter is, I really don’t know what I’m doing. People that know me would probably laugh at that. I know I look like I’ve got it all figured out. […]

Ballarat’s Laser Hair Removal, Now Available!

So I just got back from a trip to the USA, and you know what? You know what?? None of them knew where Ballarat was. They all had a good giggle at our Australian names- I had to point out several times that ‘Ballarat’ is extremely tame compared to some place names we have around […]

A study voucher

It’s been ten years since I graduated high school. I had a massive party for my twenty-eighth and ended up passed out naked at the front door two days later. Dad stepped out at eight am to go to work in the Tuesday morning and found me there. He said, ‘Bobby, you’ve spent the last […]

The party planner

You learn a lot of strange things about parents when you plan birthday parties for a living. Of course, mine are a lot more elaborate than ‘cake and party bags’. Parents hire me because I can give their kids a real experience, like ropes courses and extreme dodgeball. But then you get the weird requests, […]

Learning to be an arborist

A famous musician once sang, ‘Take a walk on the wild side’. I’ve taken this message to heart and integrated it into my life’s ethos. Everything from daily living to my career is imbued with this notion. That’s why I’ve chosen a career in arboriculture. Something about danger is very appealing. What is life without […]

Help Out the Party Help

I really need to drink some more water. After all, my job gets pretty stressful around the peak times, and we’re coming into winter. Oh, you think cleaning up after parties is more of a summer thing? Nope, winter just means they all stay inside and make all their mess there. Which makes it easier […]

Learning That Green Thumb

I wonder, can a person learn to grow flowers? I suppose that’s a silly question, because otherwise the profession of gardening would be a total ‘you got it or you don’t!’ type thing, and therefore just a little bit elitist. They probably let people do gardening who might not be totally up with the right […]

My new flower friend

I made an unlikely friend this week. His name is Donald, he is 75 and widowed. We met on a flower course. As a wedding planner dealing with flowers is kind of an occupational hazard for me and my clients always assume I have a strong knowledge of flowers. Well I do know! The course […]

Learning to Help in the Home

I’m not saying I’m feminist, or men-ist, or anything-ist, but…I don’t like it when my wife does all the DIY around the house. Not that I’m scared for her safety, because she grew up with a father who was an aircraft pilot and a mother who still works on a farm, so she knows how […]
