Here are my two mums - one biological and the other has been around since the day I was born, who I've always seen as my second mum. Jo (mother of the bride) Congratulations! My mum and Jo met when they lived in the same street over 30 years ago and were both pregnant. They became best friends and gave birth to Jazmin and I 3 months apart. Jaz and I then grew up with our stay at home mums and we literally spent everyday together for .... well... our whole childhood! You are like a sister to me - We have the same mutual friends now, we've lived together on the Gold Coast and you were at the birth of my first child. Congratulations on your wedding Jazzy and I know we both feel beyond lucky to have been raised in conjunction by our beautiful mums. Cheers to you amazing ladies! Don't forget our deal last night Jo, I want you doing the obituary of my childhood if I die because my mum will be too shy to speak in public
That moment when you haven't seen a close friend for over 3 years because they've been overseas (and you have no idea they will be at the same event) and you see them and burst into tears of happiness, I literally had tears rolling down my face and i'm not a cryer! Ingrid @ingyy87 you've made my bloody day woman! God I've missed you x
Happy 3rd Birthday to my littlest boy, Brodie! After three children, people thought I was crazy wanting another - but I knew that something was still missing in my life and Brodie you were that something. You have completed me and transformed our family in every way possible - you tied it all together perfectly. You make me laugh and smile every single day and i adore you for that. Thank you for being the most chilled out, funny little guy to spend all my days with. You constantly have me amazed at how genetics work... You look like me, you act like me, we like the same foods, sports - we have the same sense of humour and you are shy around people you don't know and the loudest in the room with people you love and are comfortable with - so basically your a mini me in every way and for that I'm sorry It is a pleasure watching you grow into the beautiful little boy you are - I love you so much Brodie xxxxx
It's our baby boy's first day of daycare today . I've been so lucky to have him as my little sidekick everyday for the past 3 years - I love that little boy beyond words. I feel pathetic but I dropped him off, drove around the corner and called Rachel to have a cry. Today is going to be tough.... #firstdayofdaycare#brodiematthew#mybaby#missyoualready#isitwinetimeyet
LGBTI Australians and our families are yet again disappointed. I've had lots of people text me who don't understand the situation at hand... The government keeps pushing for a plebiscite or postal vote. No other Act has required this process, ever. It's an amendment to an Act of parliament which doesn't require a vote by the people. I find it offensive that my human rights should be determined by a popularity vote.
The government have stated that it would be a "non binding plebiscite" anyway, meaning that even if the majority of people voted in favour, the government still don't have to make any changes, so what's the point? The postal vote would also not be compulsory, and unless an issue directly effects someone - they probably won't bother voting. These processes aren't fair.
We don't have a plebiscite on any other government decision making, why should the issue of marriage equality be any different? We live in a representational democracy, we elect people to represent us and vote on our behalf.
In 2004 when Howard changed the marriage Act to be defined as "a marriage is between a man and a woman", where was the plebiscite then? That amendment was made by a free and fast vote in parliament. Changes to the marriage Act do not require a plebiscite, so why do we need one to reverse those changes?
Had the tunes cranking while cooking dinner tonight and the kids had a dance off. They crack me up. I missed out on filming Blake brake dancing on the floor, but managed to capture this half robot style dance. God I love my boy #cracksmeup#helovestodance#blakethomas#dancing#familytime
History could be made today at 4pm. The liberal party have the opportunity to allow a FREE vote (not a plebiscite) for Australian marriage equality. If this legislation is passed, marriage within Australia will be defined as a union between two people, finally allowing those who identify as part of the LGBTI community, the right to marry who they love.
It's time for the government to stop their intolerance and direct violations against the principals of liberty, democracy and respect for human rights.
Ahh what I wouldn't give to be lying by the pool, cocktail in hand, tunes cranking, talking shit and laughing with Kim again.... Adjusting to life again after having a week of total relaxation, daily massages, sleep ins, amazing food and cocktails, no kids and summer heat everyday has been harder then expected! #throwbackthursday#whereidratherbe#takemeback#myfavepic#shesastunner
OMG and WTF?! As a qualified journalist, I hang my head in shame that this article made it to print. How on earth in this day and age did an editor for a major Australian newspaper approve this for print?! Being gay is not a health threat, nor is it comparable to smoking, morbid obesity, illicit drug use or excess drinking! This is unacceptable, sensationalist "journalism" and as a member of the LGBTI community, I want to reassure every young teen that read this that they are perfect, exactly as they are. The Daily Telegraph should be ashamed of themselves.
