Best and worst of the week (9th March)


Welcome to the end of the week and another round of Best and Worst. It’s your chance to come together and talk about the highs and the lows of your week, as well as anything else that’s on your mind.

You might have noticed that for the last few weeks, we’ve handed Best and Worst over to you. It’s our way of thanking you for being a part of this great tradition.

(Remember that you can have a chance to host – just email [email protected] with your full name, headshot and a short bio (include any links to your blog/Twitter etc), and we’ll take it from there.)


Now – introducing Jo. She writes:

Worst: I was a celebrant for a friend’s brother who asked me to go past her home, and pick up a spare jacket, bra and heels for her as a last minute change in outfit because the weather had changed.  There was no spare key – so all frocked up in my highest heels and hair and make-up done, my friend asked if it would be okay to just prop myself up on a chair and break into her bedroom window.  In pouring rain, I dragged the chair along, pried open the window, stuck a high heeled leg in, only to see two intruders sleeping in my friend’s bed. It turns out the “intruders” were my friend’s new housemates – who had decided to throw a secret house party instead of going away like they told my friend! The moral of this story is – don’t agree to be an intruder, even for a fashion emergency; don’t have a secret house party, you will always be sprung, and always keep a pant suit in the car, as it’s far easier to break into homes in.

The best: It was little things this week. Three girlfriends and I got together for a Veuve night. Easy rules – come along with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, be prepared to talk love and loss and everything in between and then get your kitchen karaoke and dancing on. I finally found time to do some exercise and went on some lovely strolls around my area. I met lots of new couples and re connected with others and talked fabulous wedding ceremonies. I found that I have the ability to really belly laugh about the predicaments I sometimes find myself in (N.B – my intruding efforts). And finally, I married two people so clearly in love that had a beautiful and passionate reading that really touched everyone, including me, and believe me, these readings can sometimes be very hard to come by!

Jo is a young and smiley celebrant in the Geelong/Melbourne region. You can find her blog here, her Twitter here and her Facebook here.
