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.

The ONLY way to get rid of split ends is to cut them off.

No matter how much Tupperware you buy.. there will never be enough lids for  the bottoms.

Bed linen needs to be changed once a week at least. no excuses.

Never buy out of date smallgoods or cheeses.. no matter how good the deal seems.

Don't mistake anxiety for excitement and vise versa.

Don't sniff... seriously... we will slap you.

Buy in season  fruit, veg and flowers .. they will be cheaper and more tasty/beautiful/ bountiful.

There is no such thing as good gluten free bread.

Don't eat the yellow snow.

Do not over-commit to work related deadlines,  family Christmas parties or the amount of courses you can eat  at one sitting.

Allow ( indeed, EXPECT of ) yourself the courtesies, understanding and second chances you would readily give to others.

Always always always have a spare unopened pair of tights/hose in your undies drawer.. in case of the way too frequent "laddering the hose before you even step outside the house" phenomenon. 

If in doubt, ring us.. we will come. Always. Everytime. We promise.
