Sweetheart, he definitely has NOT been your best friend. I hope things work out for you the way you want but this man has betrayed you over and over again. Leopards rarely change their spots.

Sorry, but in my opinion, parents and their kids are not meant to be ‘best friends’.

I've always had a soft spot for Sophie and I'm glad she's found her One and Only. She looked gorgeous in her wedding dress and I'm really happy for her and Joshua,   but PLEASE do not make it sound as though there were only the celebrant and the couple there. If that were the case, then they are definitely not legally married. You must have two witnesses at any wedding who will hear the couple exchange their vows and sign the legal documents afterwards. Perhaps they had the photographer and another service person perform as their witnesses, but this isn't made clear. Some people might think it's okay to get married without any witnesses and it's not. I've had my fair share of couples who get stroppy when I tell them that what they say they want isn't legal just because they "saw it on TV" or "read about it in a magazine".

"...after watching eight couples tie the knot". Please stop perpetuating the myth that these couples are married. They are not.

I have had many, many skin cancers due to nobody knowing how dangerous the sun can be while I was growing up. For the past 20 years I have applied SPF 50+ not only on my face but also on my ears, back of my neck, on my throat and down onto my chest. I do this rain, hail or shine 365 days a year.

I've worn Bali Barely There high-cut seamless microfiber briefs for about 15  years now even though I have to buy them from overseas.  They come in so many different colours and some have patterns woven into the fabric, some have lace or you can get get them perfectly plain. They are without a doubt the most comfortable knickers I've ever worn. You can often buy them greatly discounted if you buy 3 pairs.

Eddie Maguire (🤮🤮🤮) is obviously incapable of redeeming himself as he spouts disgraceful comments over and over again despite being hauled over the coals publicly each and every time. Eddie, please GO AWAY - you give Aussie men (the majority of whom are honourable, decent human beings) a terrible name.

If Lisa only had herself, her husband-to-be, the celebrant and their dog at the ceremony then they aren't legally married. They have to have two witnesses as well. If they did, then technically there 6 there if you count the dog!

I read somewhere else this morning that a doctor expressed his concern about Pete Evans' mental health. He's always been 'out there' but has recently shown signs of really losing the plot and seems to be in danger of becoming genuinely sick.

When I moved to Sydney it was a particularly hot and humid summer and I was dying in my dresses and tops with sleeves. I was bemoaning this one day with my son, who asked me why I didn't wear something sleeveless. When I told him I was too old, that women over a certain age don't do sleeveless, his response was to 'get over it or stop complaining'. He also asked me what made me think that anyone was looking at me and judging anyway. I realised that it was pretty silly in the grand scheme of things and have proudly gone without sleeves whenever it's hot since. Yes, my upper arms are flabby and wrinkly - but you know what, I don't care! At least I'm not purple in the face and dripping with sweat like I used to be.

Just wondering how it's possible for a Californian judge to marry someone in France? Over there, only a civil ceremony that takes place at the Town Hall and is performed by the mayor or his legally authorised representative is legally binding. Perhaps the US judge just performed a celebratory ceremony but if that's the case, why did they need a marriage licence from California? Confusing - does anyone know how this works? I'm an authorised marriage celebrant in Australia and it is illegal for us to marry anyone outside of Australia - not even inside a foreign embassy here in Oz that is classified as foreign soil.

Enid Blyton's Noddy books were banned because a saying in them was "Noddy felt a little queer". I laughed until I was almost sick when I heard that the books were to be banned - such nonsense to take offence at these words. Clearly those who made the complaints don't have a proper understanding of our language. "Queer" in this context is an adjective, i.e. it is describing how Noddy felt, not that he was "feeling up" a gay person. Anyone who interprets it that way has a dirty mind. My guess is that the complainants were not read to as children or they would understand that there are different interpretations possible between language written years ago and today. I do hope that common sense has prevailed and these books are back in print. Does anyone know?
