@guest2  Ooh “Behbeh”.... up that place without a paddle... or even a wig!! 😝

@rush Yup! That one had me LOLing too. Epic 😂😂

Yeah, nah. I will not subject myself to such pain. Waxing my eyebrows was bad enough and the redness and pimples afterwards stayed longer than I ever expected. I have extremely wiry coarse head hair so don’t get me started on the lower “afro circus”!! Pluck the brows, scissor-trim the bush and stuff anyone else who has a problem with that! 😇

I watched and enjoyed Bridgerton too and aside from thinking we must be more spontaneous, my husband’s touch still gives me shivers even after 25 years of marriage.  Fortunately for me, I found my Duke many years ago. And now even he wants to check out the show everyone’s talking about.... especially episode five! 😉

Filth and laziness. Pure and simple.

“Simply The Best!”  I haven’t enjoyed a TV show for such a long time (and actually waited weeks to watch the final two episodes because I didn’t want it to end). The characters, the costumes, the script, the delivery - outstanding entertainment. Schitt’s Creek absolutely deserved every accolade.

Great article, and best of luck Isabelle. Due to family history (all the great ailments run in my genes 🙄), I’ve gone for a colonoscopy every 5 years since I was 35. Appreciate the reminder as I’m due again next year! 

I’d rather deal with the gag-worthy prep and they find little to nothing than deal with a cancer diagnosis.... or worse. Not forgetting it’s the best sleep ever!

Thank goodness for the detective taking this matter seriously. Hopefully it sets a precedent for how these concerning matters are dealt with from this day forward. An update on how the legal proceedings go would would be awesome!

All I know is that anyone who can whip up restaurant quality meals from a mystery box of random ingredients with cameras and judges in their face and space should be praised. I hadn’t watched Masterchef for years but am really enjoying this season. Kudos to them! Keep negativity away from entertainment and obvious talent. “There’s things you may think, but you shouldn’t say out loud”. 🤐

Gosh! I pay $400 once a year to chemically straighten my afro-coarse frizz (regrowth) - sitting for about 5 hours each time. And in between get two haircuts for $65. Gotta love country life, minimal greys and a zfg attitude 😂😂

Great point! And what happens if you do catch it and do quarantine yourself and your family for 14 days.... but then you’re around someone else known to have it? We could be in lockdown for possibly months!! There are so many questions, and no one seems to have answers.

People, in general, are sheep. “If someone is doing something, I think I should be doing the same.” Do you know the guilt and shame to put a single pack of loo paper in your trolley at the moment?! Fellow shoppers look at you with judgement, then look into your trolley to see what else you’ve got because maybe they need the same! There is definitely a sense of “fear of the unknown”, because most of us have never experienced this kind of thing.

That’s true. But from what I remember of the last series of FWAW, they were choosing plastic city girls for farmers who live in remote rural areas! Recipe for heartbreak right there.

Surely by now most of Australia knows it’s watched purely for the trashy drama. This really isn’t a show looking to pair two people searching for “one true love”. It’s just a reality soap opera - like “Home and Away”..... scripted but without the talent. The premise was interesting, but the outcome disappointing. I fear “Farmer Wants a Wife” is going to be more of the same. 😔

Wow. Like I tell my son, “there are things we think, but we don’t say out loud.”
