All right, people. I’m back. I can’ t remember the last time I was handed the reigns for Best and Worst. I think Julia Gillard was the Prime Minister and I’d just started watching Breaking Bad (before giving up in season two …because yo, there’s only so many times that I can watch a high school science teacher turned drug lord hide his money in a nappy bag in the baby’s room).
Best and Worst is still my favourite Mamamia tradition. So, I’ll kick things off.
BEST 1: Watching the finished result of a Kmart video I made for Mamamia with two of my dearest friends Kate Hunter and Amity Dry.
I’ve known Kate since 2008 and we routinely get together for cups of tea and cake in Brisbane. Well, I eat the cake. Kate is one of those people who never snacks between meals. I know. I KNOW.
And Amity? Well, during the two years I lived in Adelaide, Amity was my lifeline. For those of you who watched Am on The Block – she is EXACTLY like that in real life. We spent many a morning in Adelaide solving the world’s problems over her famous coconut and raspberry cake.
Anyway, so when I was offered the chance to shoot a Mamamia video series for Kmart with two of my favourite people in my own home – it was a no-brainer.
From the moment the three of us were together (having our hair and make-up done at my kitchen bench, no less) the conversation took more twists and turns than Gone Girl as we jumped from the Budget to Offspring (we’re divided on Lawrence and Billie) to the best way to make bruschetta to how the hell we each manage to entertain our kids over the school holidays.
