@dp I'm ok with every second day or so but I was surprised about how big some of the gaps were.

Agree with the bit about the situation overseas. As someone who had to follow that news and was part of an international organisation which has lost people in every office except for Australia and NZ, I'm more than happy to wear a mask, stay inside, vaccinate, etc if it means reducing the spread and avoiding what's happened in other countries.

The so-called "freedom fighters" I know are white, upper middle class and well educated. I worry that singling out ethnicity as a reason for marching is another case of  "lumping people together in one group". We're already very much a community divided atm, it would be great to hear more stories from people from a variety of backgrounds who have been working to bring the community together

Five letters. One word

@rush I know how you feel. I drove past my supermarket today and people were lined up out the door. Unfortunately it really has bought out the worst in some people

Don't assume 'flexible' means anything. I worked in an all female team with a manager who refused to even consider women with kids, despite the fact that the company promoted flexible hours

Frozen veg and pesto or scrambled eggs on toast!

As someone who has been cheated on this was very hard to read. There is no such thing as an innocent naked bath between friends (I have male friends and that is def crossing a line). Do better. Be better. Talk to a therapist. Cheating with these guys shows a lack of respect for their partners and you. Their partners deserve more than a liar and a cheater, and believe it or not, you deserve more than being a bit on the side

@cat thanks for the heads up. I was going to check it out but won't now

@simple simon always awkward to watch!

@rosiecat they had a dog that they themselves said was actively trying to move itself out of the way of a child that was grabbing and prodding it. This is irresponsible parenting and dog ownership. Teach a child to respect an animal's space. If they're too young to understand, don't put the child and dog in the same space. Their pet of 9 years has paid the price for their laziness

Change is possible but it's really important to stress that's not the case for a lot of couples and the promises of change and temporary alteration in behaviour is what sucks a lot of women into staying. It's great that Robert was able to recognise his actions for what they were, and to hold himself accountable because that's the only way lasting change can occur.

I think what is really important to mention too is how important it is to have someone who listens to your concerns. I stayed in a relationship for far longer than I should have because the person I voiced concerns to told me it was in my head. Those early warning signs are so critical

Tbh I'm seeing this with work too. Remote learning may be a part if it but I think a lot is a year of massive upheaval and uncertainty for many. Mental health issues are at an all time high

I keep wondering about the stuff that has died/expired in the backs of these cupboards

@m.b.20 I felt that way about Glen - excused it due to binging it! Loved the show though

@fzmclaren this is victim blaming. She said no. We should be questioning why he thought it was ok to ignore the bourdaries. I do believe for her own health and well-being she needs to get out.

mamamia-user-893622181 March 23, 2021

Thank you. I stopped watching this show a couple of seasons ago for the same reasons. They need to be calling out unhealthy behaviours instead of letting them continue unchecked

@rush nope the good old snappy kind! We had to trial a few to make sure it was a quick, clean death (one rat dragged a gentler drop 12m and back). You only need a few drops of the linseed. I literally dip a bit of wire in and dab it on the trap. Keep it in glass as they'll eat through plastic!
