Finally unbanned after a month because of a few certain individuals who reported statuses from 2 years ago. Literal sad c#nts because you cant handle the truth. Cheers to Alex Eyers for taking charge of the camp while I was gone. Huge ups on the ricegum callout we made it #4 trending in Australia!! Anyway, Dibbles back on FB! Have a nice day! inb4 perm ban.
NSW RFS warn of "Catastrophic" conditions, Total Fire Bans, statewide record temps, 46 degrees, dry strong winds, fires burning across NSW, yet CSG exemptions means Santos flares at Wilga Park and Bibblewindi burn 24/7.
Santos proposes a 850 well coal seam gas field in eastern Australia’s largest inland Pilliga forest. Each well would drill through a recharge aquifer for the Great Artesian Basin, risking depressurisation of the continent’s largest groundwater source.

There's another cryptic chain letter going around to 'raise awareness' for #breastcancer. As my friend Anna just posted, and with no judgment of those who shared it at all, just get your breasts checked out, ey. Let's not be cryptic about something so important. If you've got boobs, check them for lumps. If you've got a cervix, make sure your pap smears are up to date (which reminds me to do it). Familiarise yourself with the symptoms of ovarian cancer. Get your bowels checked. Get your prostate checked. Get your moles checked. Fuck cancer. Get tested.
For many of you, talking about your depression or anxiety isn't always easy. Sometimes it can feel difficult to explain what’s going on – like you're the only one who understands. Likewise, people often struggle to know what to say to someone who they’re worried about.
Today is #TimetoTalk Day – a day about breaking the silence around mental health. In support of Time to Change, we want to remind you that even a few words – perhaps over a cuppa or during a simple and enjoyable activity – or just ‘being there’, can make a big difference in helping someone feel less alone and more supported.
Whether you’re reaching out yourself or checking in on someone you care about, you don't have to go through this alone. Our Have the Conversation resources include handy tips and real-life conversation examples: beyondblue.org.au/conversations

I woke up this morning excited that Bills coming home today!!
At 6am I had the "I haven't put the bins out again and it's fucking bin day" pangs.
Bolt down the drive way in undies. Shove left over rubbish in neighbours half empty bins. One neighbour sees me, I can tell he's pissed off. Why? I don't know.
Start to make the kids lunches.
Rumi "dinner dinner dinner" hanging off my leg. I'm pretty sure he means breaky
Make Rumi's weatbix for dinner.
It's 7am and Snow had asked me to put some random shoes on her 18 times, they don't fit so they keep coming off. Snow chucks massive fit repeating the only one word she knows over and over "mine mine mine"
Rumi yanked off his nappy and is now trying to hide Nutri Grain pieces in between his bum cheeks.
I nappy him up.
Arlo contests the contents of his lunch box, there isn't enough packets in it for him.
Me- "can you guys get dressed"
Billie-Violet "no, we live the naked life mum"
Me- "brush your teeth kids"
I go for a morning shit to find that the toilet roll holder has been snapped off and is nowhere to be seen.
"Kids who snapped off the toilet holder? Can you just bring it back you won't get in trouble"
Billie-Violet "Arlo was standing on it"
"I take that back, Arlo your in trouble!!! At least tell me where it is so I can ask your dad to fix it 5 hundred times?"
Arlo comes running in crying, "I stepped in dog shit"
Billie-Violet "mum Arlo said shit!"
Me- "well you just said it too"
Snow, points to Billie-Violets lunch box "mine"
Rumi points to his bum "pooooo"
I go to change Rumi's bum, nappy wipes, nappies, kid. Open his nappy.... nothing.... he lied.. he laughs.
Snow comes crying, the shoes have come off again. "Mine"
I need tea. I sit down to drink it, the sound of the kettle boiling is a trigger in my house- they know I'm planning 3 minutes of 'me time' everyone stops ignoring me...
"Mum where's my brush" "Mum where are my socks" "Mum Arlo's mouse is missing"
I locked myself in the bathroom and drank tea and pluck some bikini line ingrowns, which is what I like to call meditating.
3 minutes later 4 turds slam open the door, fully dressed and ready for school.
And just like that, crown is straightened and I'm ready for today. 👑
And the random little turds had me in hysterics on the walk to school 💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗
Carolyn Tate’s anxiety used to stop her going to parties, job interviews and talking to anyone but her mum on the phone. This all changed when she gave her anxiety a name; Clive.
“Clive allowed me to recognise that anxiety is separate from me. It helped me divorce myself from a situation that was overwhelming and consuming, and allows me to see that there is a me with and without anxiety. So now Clive and I have an arrangement. He knows his place. I know he’s there and I don’t battle with him anymore, and he agrees to leave the everyday thinking to me. The stuff that means I am confident in myself, that I can buy milk from the corner shop, meet new people and take the occasional phone call – all without doubting who I am and what I am capable of."
What do you call your anxiety?
