About 3 years ago, when I was living with him and penniless, my Dad Vincie started playing guitar for me. He wouldn't let me pay him, he just wanted to help me get back on my feet. We started in a 50 seater in trades hall at the MICF with my show 'Divorce the Musical' and did well, sold out 22 shows in fact- he still wouldn't take any money. Then we moved into a 150 seater and started touring nationally with 'The Motherload' and did well, sold out about 43 shows- he still wouldn't take any money. Then this year my career kicked up a bit and we were playing 1000+ seaters around the country and again selling out, but still he wouldn't let me pay him. What Vincie didn't know was that every time we did a gig, I put his pay into a bank account because I had a plan. For almost 80 gigs over 3 years I squirrelled the cash away and FINALLY this week, I was able to give him something as thanks for all his support. You see, my Dad is a huge rev head, he loves cars, european ones.. This week I turned up with his dream car and gave it to him: an amg Merc. Look it's a bit older and second hand but it's a beauty. He was pumped to say the least, I thought his heart may burst in his chest! I've always wanted to do this for him, since I was a kid. So thanks for having my back Vincie, drive safely you lunatic!

As well as being very costly, a plebiscite on same-sex marriage has the potential of being extremely divisive. There is legitimate concern that this process will result in harmful and derogatory discourse, causing deep pain to our LGBTI brothers and sisters. Equality for all is essential, but this plebiscite is unnecessary. Allowing our parliamentarians a free vote will resolve this issue without the expense, pain and division a plebiscite will bring.
Reporting back after a day volunteering at Arlo's kindy my friend told me that All the kids were told to line up and count. The first girl was "I'm one" And then "I'm two "I'm three" "I'm four" "I'm five"
And then the awkward silence when they got to my non counting Arlo... Until he responded with
And the teacher happily replied,
"good answer Arlo"
And guess who else is happy? Me. Coz I couldn't give 2 fucks if my 4 year old can't count, but him being happy completes this mum 💗💗💗
