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.

A little bit of dirt never killed anyone.  Wash your hands with soap and water.  Back away from the antibacterial hand-washes etc.  Do you really need to have your toilet cleaner kill 99.9% of germs?  What do you intend to do in your toilet that it needs to be that clean?

Someone much wiser than us has said, it is better to turn the other cheek.  However, sometimes you need to turn the other cheek and give them an absolute gobful.

Where you live is not as important as how you live.

One of your life’s ambitions should be to be just a little bit eccentric, quirky, odd.  Life is so much more interesting with eccentricity, quirks and oddity in it.

If you start a course of antibiotics, finish it.  One day someone you love may suffer needlessly from an antibiotic-resistant infection brought about by people not finishing antibiotics.

Sing karaoke.  It is HUGE fun.

You might not believe this, but we do have excellent taste in music.  Just ask us to share our favourites with you.  You might enjoy them.  Or not.

We will always be your advocate, your supporter, your advisor.  Promise. 

Don’t poke snakes, lions or other biting snarly animals.  The same goes for biting snarly humans.
