One day not too long ago..2 Australian mamas were sitting on a back deck, sipping wine.. and talking up all the oxygen available.. when the conversation turned to life lessons.. and what they thought were the ones that certainly and without doubt needed to be learned. The two teenage daughters of the 2 mamas were, in turn, amazed, amused, and repulsed, by the words of wisdom tumbling forth from the mamas' mouths. These are, in no particular order, those words.

Never grocery shop on an empty stomach.

Try not to cry when you are unspeakably angry with someone, it just makes you even more angry and then you cry some more.

Whoever cooks, does not have to wash up.  Unless you are alone.

Throwing clothes on the floor takes just as much energy as putting them in the dirty clothes basket.

As life-limiting as it sounds, separate your colours before you wash them.  Whites, Pale colours, dark colours..

In winter, you only have to iron the collar and cuffs of shirts, as long as you are wearing a jumper, and you are not peri- menopausal.

A good structured jacket hides a lot of sins. Go for: black or red leather, or a burberry print, cashmere or a non itchy camel coloured wool. Dont go for: pleather, real fur, plastic  or waist length.

When shaving your legs, beware nicking the skin on your shins or tendons on the sides of your ankles.  They hurt like nothing else (except perhaps paper cuts).
