All well and good- but WHAT can we actually do about this as the public? If these are the people leading our country and ultimately voting on behalf of us everyday people then how do we go about changing this? And I’m not talking about long term down the track voting I’m taking right now, let’s throw this decision back to parliament to re vote, to re look at. They are supposed to represent us, so start listening to us. Help us by giving us some things we can do to create change.

You can rent snoo’s on Facebook marketplace if people are interested. But we did without and didn’t have an issue. Also second the suits with zips and stretchy swaddles but i couldn’t express or breast feed despite trying so hard so not everyone would find that relevant and maybe worth saving your money until you have bubbs to figure out what’s going to work for you. And babydink is just as good as konny wrap and Australian made.

I’m not angry anymore I’m just tired, so very tired of the constant cycle we’re in. The thought that this will never end, I totally understand the politicians are doing the right thing and we need to look out for one another but when do we draw the line? The line that looks after small businesses in the beauty, hospitality and health industries, the line that looks after mental health. How can we aim for 70% vaccination with the rate our vaccines are being produced and supplied? It can’t keep going on like this because by lockdown 6.0 I am just so very tired.

Do yourself a favour and watch ‘The Serpent’ and ‘Unbelievable’ they were FANTASTIC

Aaahhh I so relate to the feeling of comparing my body to mums with newborns when my baby is older or having the pram nearby so people don’t judge me. Sad but reality we put too much pressure on weight loss and looking ‘fit’ rather then acknowledging what our amazing bodies have just done.

What’s with the sleeves being pushed up?! If your going to wear a jacket it’s usually because it’s cold... just makes me wonder why you’d bother buying it if you didn’t actually know what it looked like

I was under the impression from friends going from 0 to 1 was harder then going from 1 to 2 but found that was not the case personally. 1 to 2 was sooooo much harder and I wondered everyday for the first few months if I had made the right decision to have another. Thankfully I got into my groove around the 5-6 month mark and learnt to relax as well. All I can say is forgive yourself and don’t hold yourself to impossible standards.

Far out good on her for standing up and posting this. Such a shame there are so many trolls out there and the irony is they’re probably ‘fat’ themselves sitting and judging people without knowing the story behind the body.

He didn’t kill those members but the way he treated them in their final moments is how I hope he is treated in his. Our justice system is absolutely disgraceful- the 8 months were for his driving offences and only 2 months were for the way he behaved when four human beings were dying in front of him. I hope he looks in the mirror everyday and sees what a worthless human being he is.

I loved this series of MasterChef with the new judges and returning contestants and Laura was one of my favourites. I find it sad we have to make drama in all series these days, why can’t we focus on what they’re about like talent in the kitchen or building/renovating etc. If you want to be a troll or see something with ‘drama’ go watch series like married at first sight which has devolved into absolute c**p.

People need to stop watching this s**t. The more people watch it the more likely the producers will pull this c**p for ratings so do the right thing and TURN IT OFF. It’s 2021 for gods sake why do we watch a show that makes people rank based on looks. Pathetic.

I’ve asked for natural makeup a number of times, just means you want to stick to more nude tones and not be over done. Also, try not blinking when a stranger comes at you with an eye pencil and mascara - literally your bodies natural reaction to blink lol

As a parent I don’t mind sacrificing some work to spend that quality time with my kids, I am lucky my husband can work to support us and I want to be a part of they’re lives growing up. I do agree with one thing being that companies should continue to contribute to our superannuation whilst on maternity leave.

I find a majority of people who are against changing or abolition of the date are against it without being properly educated as to the background. This is the fault of our education system not teaching proper Australian history. Makes me sad that a meaningful gesture so small such as moving a date can divide a country so much.

Uhh the one about extreme rudeness- it is absolutely important to research the company and your job role when going for an interview, don’t know why you’d go in blind about a job you want, although I’m not inferring they weren’t rude it might be something they thought was important when interviewing for the role.

Thanks goodness for some positive spin on this. So sick of hearing the negative self entitled drivel of some of the other players when everyday people have been struggling through this pandemic causing serious mental health issues and affecting thousands of working Australians. Glad some players see the logical side to their isolation regardless of how hard it may be.

There’s no data on long term side affects of both covid-19 or it’s vaccine which makes the decision on whether to take it harder. I’m not an anti-vaxxer by any means but the rate in which it has been rolled out is concerning when considering you and your children’s future should you take it.

Why do we always hear the sob story of the criminal who committed the crime. What about the victim who’s life was cut short? Who never got to hold the child she carried? Sometimes I think Australia should have the death penalty for extreme cases such as this, I don’t feel sorry for her execution I feel sorry for the 16 year old girl who never got to meet her mother.

100% rape. The problem is that in today’s society, a jury of 12 peers might not agree ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’. Essentially it’s his word against yours and unfortunately going through our current justice system revictimises the victim with an inevitably unfavourable outcome. And now victims don’t even get a name.

My best friend is like this. It’s like everything revolves around her and what’s going on in her life, I barely get asked how I am before she launches into another story about what’s happening with her work/relationships/family etc. I’ve gotten over it so slowly ghosting her and maybe she’ll figure it out or not but I dont care anymore.
