The Woman Who Works 22 Hours A Day

The election is happening TOMORROW - and 3.5 million Australians have already voted. This has never happened before and no-one really knows why. So is this a generational shift away from ‘event’ voting and towards convenience?  It’s going to completely change the way politicians campaign next time and also means it’s likely we won’t get a result on Saturday and Holly has some very strong feelings about it.

Jessie went to an engagement party over the weekend and didn’t bring a gift because the invitation said not to bring a gift. But when she got there? Yep, you guessed it. Gifts. And lots of them. So is she a bad person or did she do the right thing?

Plus, how many hours a day do you work? 71-year-old American author Danielle Steel says she works 22 hours a day. And, she’s written 178 books. She’s  listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having a book on the New York Times best-seller list for the most consecutive weeks of any author. But is this a life really worth living?
