#BREAKING: Tanya Plibersek and I have given notice to the Parliament that we intend to introduce a private member's bill to make marriage equality a reality - without an expensive & divisive plebiscite.
UPDATE: The Pet Census is now closed. Thank you so much to the 100,000 people that completed it. The results will be available soon!
Sure it's Census time, but something doesn't seem quite right. It appears they've forgotten someone; our pets. With not a single question about the furry family, it's surely impossible to plan for an Australia where pets are included.
So tonight, I'm launching Australia's first ever #PetCensus. And you might even enjoy this one. This census is simple...with just 8 questions and best of all, no personal details! Armed with this insight into our pet population, I'll be talking to government over the next month to ensure we Keep Australia Pet Friendly. Thanks for your help!
We had more babies because we loved our first one so much.
We got so busy loving our babies we forgot to love each other.
Nothing was fun.
We fought because he was going to work and working harder and I was staying home and working harder and neither of us believed the other was working as hard as themselves.
We stopped making each other laugh.
We spent less time together, I noticed his trips to the shops taking all day, I felt like he would do anything to get away from me. He argued that, claiming he was just very busy.
We competed on who's life was harder.
We were no longer friends.
We said horrible things to each other, we couldn't believe the words that were coming out of our mouths.
We had become each other's enemy.
We were defeated.
We missed each other.
We knew, there was only one way back... to remember who we were in the beginning. Who we fell in love with before we let life turn us against each other, people we actually respected. Because it wasn't us that we hated it was outrageous work loads.

I used to be obsessed with my weight. I thought skinny was beautiful.
My least favourite part of being a mum was losing the baby weight.
Then a few years ago I had a cancer scare, I found a lump on my breast. I was so scared that I wouldn't be granted the privilege to raise these perfect children of mine. That week, I couldn't eat yet my weight was the furthest thing from my mind. When the doctor told me it was a cyst and not cancer I was flooded with relief. I grabbed my kids so tightly and we all went out for a huge lunch with loads of food and hugs and laughter.. I was embarrassed for placing so much importance on my weight for so many years.
Now I realise that not losing your baby weight isn't a sign of letting go, it's a sign that this Queen has evolved, she's realised that life is not about a number on a scale, happiness is about gratitude and love and the privilege that is life.
You work 24 hours a day and get asked why you don't work....
Your toddler actually ate dog shit yesterday yet won't even try a meal that you slaved away to make him....
Your never ever alone yet you always feel a bit lonely..
You haven't enjoyed a meal in years but your gaining wait from eating scraps....
You're always busy and always bored...
You feel resentful and exhausted and hard done by while head over heels in love....
You stare at your sleeping child and the most romantic man you know, the one you chose to spend your life with appears scratching his nuts while telling you 'now is a good time for a root'
Everyone is uploading photos of themselves and their new families frolicking and holding hands in fields while you're locking bathroom door drinking beer in the shower loathing the reflection of your dread locking pubes in the foggy mirror..
You spend your whole day wanting some space from the very people that you never want to leave...
It's so confusing because you wouldn't change a single thing. 💗👑
