A little Nigerian take on love

There are some really great Nigerian writers and speakers. One I have found recently is Elnathan John who writes over on that “other” platform on the interwebz that doesn’t have a re-blog button to automatically share. This is my attempt at a manual approximation. HOW TO SHOW NIGERIAN LOVE To quote D’Banj, “love is a beautiful […]

Quick health update (following on from Friday)

On Friday I wrote about being in pain again. I’m sharing these little ups and downs so others on this journey can see what may happen, even after diagnosis! Today is Tuesday and I have just got back from the GP. I got home from work walking stooped over. Everything from my waist down is […]

Manicures and glitter nail polish

Now for something COMPLETELY different! A break from politics and health matters. I’ve always like manicured nails, but used to do them myself. When I was unwell last year, I broke a couple of nails and went to get a couple of tips put on. Don’t ask me how, but I ended up with some […]

Open Letter to Sussan Ley on Medicare changes

Dear Sussan, I am glad common sense prevailed today and you called a halt to the changes that were to take effect on Monday. I see this as a reprieve, but not a victory. You have made it very clear you are intent on making changes. I am disappointed you place the emphasis on consulting […]

What is this premature performance costing the taxpayer?

There is something decidedly unwise about pushing ahead with the Medicare Rebate changes supposedly still scheduled to start on Monday, January 19th when those changes are still subject to a Senate vote. As several news outlets reported today, including The Sydney Morning Herald and the ABC News, when the Senate resumes in February it is […]
