It's funny how much deeper a compliment feels when it's not about your looks. We always tell each other how great we look, it's so natural, "hey Babe!!! How are you? You look hot!!"
But yesterday I bumped into a friend who hugged me and said, "hey Con!!!! You are so fantastic!!!" As she squeezed me tight.
It felt like the richest compliment I'd ever heard. And took me back to a time where my aunty walked into my house, looked straight at me and instead of saying my new hair looked good or asking me if I'd lost weight she said "Constance? .... you are amazing"
And I felt it. So much so that for the rest of the day I was Amazing Constance.
So stay amazing Queens. Coz you are. More then your weight, your loosely curled sea salty hair and your contoured cheek bones.

A batch of illegal fireworks led to the tragic death of this therapy horse in country Victoria. And with New Years Eve rapidly approaching, his loss is serving as an important reminder of the dangers of fireworks to pets of all sizes…
Police believe that Bobby, a horse that had previously helped owner Hannah Shiels through depression, was spooked when an entire box of crackers exploded on a farm in Kangaroo Ground, Victoria. The noise sadly led Bobby to run into a fence and fall over. The local vet was then forced to put Bobby to sleep due to a combination of the shock and the physical injuries he had suffered. A tragic end for a horse who devoted his life to helping others.
With a little over 24 hours to go until the official New Years Eve fireworks begin, the hope is that Bobby’s loss will show us that those bangs and booms that our pets find so frightening can occur at any time on the night, not just midnight. I’ll be posting my top tips to keep your pets fireworks safe shortly…

***Thunderstorm Asthma Warning – South Australians urged to take extra care***
" National Asthma Council Australia is warning South Australians who experience wheezing and sneezing to take extra care, ahead of predicted thunderstorms over the Christmas period.
The forecasted thunderstorm conditions, together with current high pollen counts, can lead to breathing problems being experienced not only by people with asthma but those who experience significant hay fever. People who wheeze and sneeze with hay fever from pollens during spring are most likely to be affected, even if they do not have pre-existing asthma.
Dr Jonathan Burdon AM, Chair of the National Asthma Council Australia and respiratory physician, said with the increasing incidence of asthma triggered by unusual weather conditions, it important to take preventative steps.
“As we have seen with the recent events in Melbourne any serious asthma attack can be life-threatening and have tragic consequences.
“Act quickly if you start to have symptoms such as shortness of breath or wheezing.
“The best way to treat thunderstorm asthma is to avoid it happening by making sure your asthma is under control and following your written asthma action plan. If you haven’t previously had a diagnosis of asthma and are experiencing regular symptoms, book in to have a review with your doctor. You may benefit from preventer medication and having an action plan for emergencies.”
National Asthma Council Australia issued the following advice for thunderstorm asthma:
What to do if a thunderstorm is forecast - Always carry your blue reliever puffer with you - Make sure you take your regular daily preventer, if you have been prescribed one - Know the signs of worsening asthma and the asthma first aid steps - If you start developing any signs of asthma, follow your personal asthma action plan, if you have one, or the asthma first aid steps - If your asthma symptoms are rapidly worsening, call 000 and say you are having an asthma attack. - If you know you are sensitive to pollen, it might help to stay inside on high pollen and windy days, and just before, during and after a thunderstorm, but stay alert for asthma symptoms.
'Thunderstorm asthma’ is a potent mix of pollen and weather conditions that can trigger severe asthma symptoms. It occurs when a storm strikes on a hot and windy day during pollen season when there are high levels of pollen in the air. When the storm front hits, the pollen grains absorb the moisture and burst into tiny particles. The thunderstorm outflow winds blow these particles down to ground level, where they can then get inhaled deep inside the lungs and trigger a serious asthma attack.
In Australia, one in 10 adults and children have asthma. Around 4 out of 5 people with asthma also have allergies, such as pollen-related hay fever."
