There’s a great couple of lines from a 1940s song called ‘It Was Just One of Those Things’ that I tried to keep in mind during my own dating years.
Sorry guys, but I think I win. I worked for a specialist orthodontist as his secretary. The uniform included navy blue shoes. I bought a pair of navy Sandler shoes at David Jones with a 5cm heel. They were the most comfortable shoes I ever wore. The boss’s wife (practice manager) pointed out that the heel slanted towards the front of the shoe instead of being straight up and down. She said they were a trip hazard(?!) and to buy another pair.
I cannot believe it’s taken Australian audiences so long to catch onto the brilliance of British television, especially the crime dramas. We’ve watched almost nothing else for entertainment for at least the last 30 years. If it’s not British, we don’t watch it. Suranne Jones has been a favourite of ours since she played Karen in Coronation Street about 20 years ago. Scott and Bailey was another vehicle for her talents.
If you place expectations on people, you will always be disappointed. And just remember, you are incredibly lucky to be in your position. Hundreds, if not thousands of women will read this who’d sell their very souls to be in your pregnancy bubble, growing a healthy baby.
It seems strange to me that this woman preaches avoiding medication and living a natural life, but she has injections of filler.
Why is it necessary to describe the Jackman children as adopted? Being an adoptee myself and the mother of an adopted son, I can assure you that the Jackmans don’t look at their children any differently from the way other parents look at their biological children. It seems to me hurtful and discriminatory.
This is the precise reason that I won’t read any printed matter or watch or listen to anything that is presented in emotional and passionate language. It’s always been my policy that if you have something to say about a topic that’s sensitive, you should just present it in a calm, factual manner. Obviously, when speaking of a death, it’s going to be emotional, but just stick to the facts, especially if the person is not personally known to you.
@anonymous, you do realise that the Fraser and Abbot governments were conservative governments, don’t you? Also, as someone who voted Labor for more than 50 years, I know for a fact that Roman Catholics, almost entirely, vote Labor. The Catholic Church is a major donor to the Labor Party.
Patty showed his true worth in my view, when he told the Channel 7 interviewer that he was doing it for Australia, as a proud Australian. He didn’t take the opportunity to turn the victory into a political debate.
@judymac, and that’s the very thing most nurses rarely do: care for themselves. I speak from experience.
Stop it! Just stop it! You’re torturing yourself needlessly if your husband is sincere. You have a choice to make: you can keep rehashing this endlessly and ruin the rest of your life and, by extension, the lives of your husband and children if you have them, or you can come to your senses.
Well, comments like Bindi’s are a sure way to bring healing and peace. With her level of privilege, I simply refuse to cast her as a victim. If she chooses to spend time thinking about how terribly she’s been wronged, that’s on her. I’m in complete agreement with the family member who said it’s a private matter. Her only reason for posting that comment, was to put on the victim’s cloak of ‘poor me’.
My parents died within five months of each other. The shock and grief were overwhelming at the time. But I was 62 and a lot more equipped in every way than two teenage girls.
@lizbette, so would you stop travelling in a motor vehicle because people have died in road accidents? Not all men behave badly and those who do are in the minority.
My husband retired far too young at 56 and regretted having done so. However, he found an interest in the Ulysses Club and made new friendships with men with a shared love of motorbikes. I continued working for another 10 years and retired at 66. I’ve now been retired for nine years and we’ve never been as close as we are now. We’ve been married 53 years and life is just so settled and comfortable now. While that may sound boring to some, neither of us are in particularly good health, so it suits us.
@jen89 my husband was incredibly supportive of my studying and career. He did his share of housework and childcare, so they’re not all bad.
There must be something wrong with me.I’ve been through the pasta necklaces, second hand junk from the Mothers’ Day stall at school, the handmade cards, all of that. I loved it! As I was a nurse for most of my son’s childhood, there were many years I was at work, but we made it a great day anyway.
As I understand it the legal position on this is clear. An engagement rings is a gift given in contemplation of marriage. If the marriage doesn’t occur, the woman needs to return the ring. However, if the marriage does occur, the contract has been fulfilled, so the ring belongs to the woman.
I tried this diet and the weight literally fell off! However, I was concerned about the lack of vitamins and minerals in the diet. As a big eater of fruit and vegetables, I missed them and found the diet to be a bit boring after a while.
In no way am I diminishing the beliefs of any religion, but I wish someone could give me a convincing answer as to why this self denial is necessary. I was raised a Christian and from a small child never understood why one Christian religion forbade the eating of meat on Fridays. I knew that it was because they believe Christ was crucified on a Friday, but it didn’t make sense when I was 10, and it makes less sense now, although I believe it’s no longer a thing.
