He put up with his drama Queen wife who calls him in tears having an anxiety attack because she was refused service at a bottle shop for not wearing shoes..
He hasn't even noticed the 8kgs I've put on this year and he wouldn't give 2 fucks if he did.
And when he gets approached by strangers who know more about our relationship/his balls/our sex life then him. He just doesn't get mad, he gets all chuffed.
But this year he has out done himself, when I decided that I was writing this book the twins were making it impossible to concentrate and he said that it was time to put them in daycare, almost defeated I told him that we can't afford daycare and he responded with, "We'll find the money, you need to do this, you have been an amazing writer since before we met and now is your chance" and he did. He found the money and the twins have been in daycare 3 days a week ever since. Bill worked until 11pm last night and will work until 11pm tonight. Because he loves us so much and he believes in me.
And I just love him. Even though all of his work meetings happen to be at a pub and he gives me more shits then 2 week old curry.
I love him. I love you Bill. Please don't ever leave me 👊🏼👑
Treasurer Scott Morrison blocks the sale of S Kidman and Co to a Chinese company
“My preliminary view of the proposal that has been put to me is contrary to the national interest,” Mr Morrison said of the 80 per cent interest in Kidman Dakang wants to acquire.
Nor had a revised sale proposal satisfied his concerns.
The size and significance of the portfolio, combined with the impact the decision may have on broader Australian support for foreign investment in agriculture, must also to be taken into account in this case, the treasurer said.
Australia welcomes foreign investment, however we must be confident that this investment is not contrary to the national interest.”
But Mr Morrison has left the door open to approving the sale of S Kidman and Co after consideration of an external and independent review of the sale process.
While the review found the sale process followed a satisfactory commercial practice that offered opportunity to Australian parties to make an offer, it also found there was significant domestic interest in Kidman.
“I have concerns that the form in which the Kidman portfolio has been offered as a single aggregated asset, has rendered it difficult for Australian bidders to be able to make a competitive bid,” Mr Morrison said
“The size of the asset makes it difficult for any single Australian group to acquire the entire operation.”
Mr Morrison has given Dakang Australia Holdings Pty Ltd until next Tuesday to respond to his concerns.
"I wonder what it’s like being 28 and waking up knowing you’re going to ask her to marry you tonight. I wonder what it’s like being 30 and waking up to her gone for the week on a work trip and having the entire bed to yourself for the first time in ages so you starfish the fuck out of it, but somehow drift over to their side because you already miss them. I wonder what it’s like being 42 and waking up for work content that the same pair of tired eyes as yesterday, and the day before that, and for the past 13 years, still look at you like you have the ability to reverse time and stop the sun from rising any higher, then you could both stay in bed. You blink, smile, and kiss her forehead softly as a reply, silently acknowledging your shared distaste for mornings, but not apologizing for wanting to wake up to those eyes again tomorrow. I wonder what it’s like being 49 and waking up beside someone who still makes you nervous when they look at you that close up in the morning, especially now that you’re nearing 50 and fully aware of the wrinkles you have and the ones on the way. I wonder what it’s like being 61 and waking up at 2pm because you were too sore and sickly to get out of bed that morning, but when you hear her key in the door after coming back from the store with some medicine, your favourite soup and a kiss, it still makes your heart beat fast enough to propel you off the bed and into her healing arms. I wonder what it’s like being 87 and waking up next to an undisturbed pillow and an unwrinkled half of a quilt because she died 2 years ago, peacefully in her sleep. It was just her time to go. I wonder what it’s like to live life in that much love. And when you do, I wonder what it’s like to lose it to something as trivial as your body passing through time. It’s heartbreaking that the body can’t last as long as the love between two people. But it’s also kind of beautiful that love transcends physical nature. All we can do is experience it while it’s here and while it lasts."
Connie does her own coulouring sheets for her kids. We laid them out today. Howzabout a colouring book for villagers, with proceeds to cancer vanquishment? What do you say? Maybe leave a comment if you want one so we know how many to print? What should we charge?
She's back, ladies and gentlemen! Great to see her going gangbusters again. Very proud. xsam

Last night Rob Mills was on the show. If you missed it then you didn't hear me acknowledge the incredible thing he did for me a few years ago. I was at absolute rock bottom, my marriage had ended, I'd lost my job on radio and I'd had to move back in with my parents. So yes, I was a 34 year old, unemployed, single Mother of 2, living with her parents.. As you can imagine that KILLED on tinder! One weekend the girls were with their Dad so I found myself at a loose end wandering around St Kilda, my Dad had phoned to tell my a childhood pal's Mother had died and I was terribly upset. I realised I was near Rob's place so I tried to call him to see if he was home, I attempted to dial him but quickly released that the phone had been barred from making calls. Because I didn't pay the bill. I took a chance and walked to Rob's house, only to find it empty and so I lay down on the ground out the front of it and sobbed. About ten minutes later he pulled up and without saying a word carried me inside and tried to console me. I confessed everything to him, that I was a failure as a human and a Mother, that I was wretchedly depressed and that I was in terrible debt. He listened patiently and then asked me to show him everything that I owed, I did and he then proceeded to pay EVERY SINGLE BILL I had. Without question. With a smile on his face. Sixteen thousand dollars worth. I protested, many times over. But he looked at me and said "Em things are going to turn around for you, you're too talented for them not to. I see you as an investment! It's only money, I can fix this for you. I want to." So I did and he did and things certainly did turn around for me after that. Sometimes you just need another person to believe in you when you've lost the faith, I am so glad I had Rob to be that person. The podcast is up now if you want to hear it in full. Bless that glorious man. P.S I have paid him back, every cent!
"Today in one of our classes I introduced the children to two apples (the children didn't know this, but before the class I had repeatedly dropped one of the apples on the floor, you couldn't tell, both apples looked perfect). We talked about the apples and the children described how both apples looked the same; both were red, were of similar size and looked juicy enough to eat.
I picked up the apple I'd dropped on the floor and started to tell the children how I disliked this apple, that I thought it was disgusting, it was a horrible colour and the stem was just too short. I told them that because I didn't like it, I didn't want them to like it either, so they should call it names too.
Some children looked at me like I was insane, but we passed the apple around the circle calling it names, 'you're a smelly apple', 'I don't even know why you exist', 'you've probably got worms inside you' etc.
We really pulled this poor apple apart. I actually started to feel sorry for the little guy.
We then passed another apple around and started to say kind words to it, 'You're a lovely apple', 'Your skin is beautiful', 'What a beautiful colour you are' etc.
I then held up both apples, and again, we talked about the similarities and differences, there was no change, both apples still looked the same.
I then cut the apples open. The apple we'd been kind to was clear, fresh and juicy inside.
The apple we'd said unkind words to was bruised and all mushy inside.
I think there was a lightbulb moment for the children immediately. They really got it, what we saw inside that apple, the bruises, the mush and the broken bits is what is happening inside every one of us when someone mistreats us with their words or actions. When people are bullied, especially children, they feel horrible inside and sometimes don't show or tell others how they are feeling. If we hadn't have cut that apple open, we would never have known how much pain we had caused it.
I shared my own experience of suffering someone's unkind words last week. On the outside I looked OK, I was still smiling. But, on the inside someone had caused me a lot of pain with their words and I was hurting.
Unlike an apple, we have the ability to stop this from happening. We can teach children that it's not ok to say unkind things to each other and discuss how it makes others feel. We can teach our children to stand up for each other and to stop any form of bullying, just as one little girl did today when she refused to say unkind words to the apple.
More and more hurt and damage happens inside if nobody does anything to stop the bullying. Let's create a generation of kind, caring children.
The tongue has no bones, but is strong enough to break a heart. So be careful with your words."
I was walking along Flinders Street today when I saw this young guy offering a homeless man some stuff out of a bag. Of course I had to ask him what was going on!
"What are you doing?"
"I have been in Melbourne for 6 months and I fly back to France at 11 tonight. I had all this stuff that I can't take with me so instead of just throwing it away I thought I'd offer it to people who need it. Melbourne has given me so much in my visit and this is what I can do to give back before I leave."
"That's amazing mate, will you ever come back to Melbourne?"
"As soon as I possibly can. I love this city!"
These little acts of kindness and thoughtfulness make the world such a better place. Thanks for making Melbourne a better place before you left Flo.
