I'm in a hotel room bathroom crying my eyes out on the floor. They are so puffy that I can barely see through them. Bill and I are in a really shitty place, I packed my bags and the kids up yesterday and left. I don't know if we will pull through this time, we just can't stop fighting. My heart is literally stomped on.
Then all of this happened with the Nic Naitinui business and I really didn't have the energy for it. I was advised that once it became national news I had to comment, I was asked for my comment from various media outlets and it couldn't have come at a worse time.
I'm sorry to all of the Queens that my opinion has offended.
I didn't think I was shaming her at all, I clearly stated that I don't believe she is racist at all, she has a beautiful son with a great hero. I just don't think we should paint our kids in blackface if it offends and hurts people.
Now I have never received so much abuse in my life. I am being called a cunt from her family, I have received death threats, I ban them and they start new accounts, they are relentless. I have been called every name under the sun, called a fake, told that I am too big for my boots over and over again.
I thought I had my anxiety under control but I feel like I can't breath.
The kids have seen me cry more then ever in the last 24 hours and I don't have my husband to remind me that it's all going to be ok.
I am so sorry that I have offended so many people, I never meant to. I was raised to be very culturally sensitive, taken to aboriginal rights protests and spending my holidays in the communities with family that were teachers, that is part of who I am.
Please stop sending me these horrible messages and writing these things on my wall, I am feeling really broken and alone right now and I don't have the strength for this.
A lot of Queens have messaged me this week to ask what exactly this book is about, so here is a small snippet of what you will find inside.
Childbirth, having your baby sliced out of tummy on more drugs then you had in your 20s and the disappointment you'll feel that none of them even slightly compare to the shittest E you've ever had. Or the natural and graceful act of getting un-enjoyably fisted by your #hotdoctor and then shitting all over yourself in front of everyone.
Anxiety, how to go from hiding in your house to embracing your anxiety to being a diva about it "Queen Down mother fuckers get me a paper bag pronto"
Relationships, how tough it is for men and how understanding we must be when the arse fuckery of let downs sinks in and your realise that you actually married a spare dick. Of course there are some pearls of wisdom to help you clear the smoke and remind yourself that... "Yeah I could tap that again." And the heart breaking story of when Bill and I were unfaithful 😔 and how we came back to eventually being stronger then ever. 👊🏼
Body image, how I went from being a bulimic teenager and an adult with the belief system that everything would be ok if I could just lose 5 kilos, to me a Queen who struts her muffin top and knows deep down that numbers on scales are nothing, I am hot as fuck. 👊🏼
Kids, how to stay calm when one is pissing on your pillow another just screamed that she hates you and another just shat in the eski.
Queens. Some of us swap slow cooker recipes and others roll each other massive spliffs to get through. But we all get through and our differences unites us.
And so much more.

What a hard fought race. So close on the line. Gave it my all and so proud to win the bronze medal in the Keirin. My 6th Olympic medal in 4 games. I didn't know in winning this id become * Australia's most successful Olympic track cyclist * The only woman in the world to medal in all 4 sprint events at the Olympic Games * The only Australian athlete to medal individually at four consecutive games with this being my 5th individual medal Thanks Amy McCann for the stats! Big thanks to the many people involved Sprint starts tomorrow
The fact that Australians can enjoy their weekends without fear of getting shot is "probably" because our government decided to strip us of our God-given right to own projectile weaponry capable of shooting down helicopters.
Every year the Salvo's host a huge Christmas lunch for 2,000 people in our community who would otherwise not be feasting tomorrow. And every year we show our support by giving them a truckload of fresh food. It's a wonderful event and we're so proud to be a part of it. Hope it's a cracking lunch tomorrow @salvosau !
At the beach today.. I saw heavily pregnant women pulling herself out of her car. 2 kids following, they were doing the usual, being drainers, fighting, winging, dobbing, complaining.
I remember being pregnant with the second and third... It's so fucked, you don't have anywhere near the energy levels you require to deal with that shit 24/7. But this majestic chick was different.. She had no shoes on... She was on the phone, laughing at something hilarious... She was totally tuned out to the drainingness that is pregnant mothering...... Until one started the relentless tugging at her arm... and what does this legend do? She doesn't yell, doesn't snap, doesn't even look at him... Reached into her bag, grabbed 10er and handed it to the kid. They both shut up immediately and ran to kiosk to buy an ice-cream while the legendary barefoot laughing pregnant goddess parked her arse under a tree and basked in the winter sun.
Finished her phone call, kids return revelling in their ice creams, she kissed them and they all went on enjoying their time.
Dear barefoot pregnant lady laughing on the phone. I love you.
Some days we all just have pick our battles, give into the little shits so that we can enjoy our time with them in the sun.
Felt like a creep asking her for a photo. So here is selfie of me appreciating her.
