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.

Understand that when someone serves you food they have cooked, it is safe to assume they have not laced it with arsenic, so DO NOT approach it with suspicion.  Just eat it and be grateful.  (And then wash up).

You cannot eat nachos every night for the rest of your life, so stop asking.

Find a fashion icon closer to home: your mum, her friend (Hi Liz), someone you work with, your best friend?  Style icons do not have to be found in fashion magazines.

Mobile phones are excellent for texts and emergency or BRIEF calls.  The rest of the world does not find your conversations about your STD nearly as riveting as you think they do.

Back away from excessive eye liner.

Do NOT, we repeat, do NOT bring your dog to someone’s home, uninvited and then let them wee on their rug, frolic and generally trash their house.  And then do a large poo in their back yard**.  

**The same applies to your children, spouse and good self.
