Four Chicks in Byron Bay

I don't know about you, but quite often I might be sitting around with the Trophy Wives of Lindfield when someone might say something like... "Did you now that there is a new Yoga Studio opening up? Let's all start doing yoga together!" And everyone thinks that it is the most brilliant idea since screw top wine so we all talk about how wonderful … [Read more...]

What Women Want

  There appears to be a bit of a glut of my friends going through separations and divorces. And I totally get it. Marriage is bloody hard work at times, and mid-life crises are a true thing! Some are amicable splits, but most are not. Most are due to someone unable to keep it in their pants. Mr Woog and I have an insurance policy in … [Read more...]

How to avoid marinating in ones own filth

Greetings from Thailand, where the atmosphere is humid and conditions are perfect for dugonging around a lake-like resort pool. It is so large and lagoon like, that if one was to fall and hit ones head, I suspect that it might take weeks to find your body. I am travelling with a school mum mate and her daughter, who happens to be one of Jack's … [Read more...]

The WoogsWorld Holiday Itinerary for 2018 is OUT!

YOU'VE SEEN THEM SIPPING ON SANGRIA ON INSTAGRAM! YOU HAVE FOLLOWED THEIR ADVENTURES TO DESERTED ISLANDS AND YOU HAVE WATCHED THEM GORGE ON EXOTIC CUISINES ON PRISTINE BEACHES. YOU HAVE SILENTLY JUDGED THEM FOR TAKING WINE WITH LUNCH AND YOU HAVE PROMISED YOURSELF THAT IN 2018 YOU WILL COME ALONG TO ONE OF THE WOOGSWORLD ESCAPES... Ladies. It's … [Read more...]

A girl’s weekend in Noosa

The weather was perfect. Sunny yet not too hot. The water was a sparkling turquoise which beckoned me. I stripped off my clothes and stood there in my swimmers, on the sand, taking in deep breaths of the salty air. "Jesus woman.... FLAP! FLAP!" my friend hissed at me. So it would seem that one part of my anatomy was keener than the rest of me … [Read more...]

How to leave your family

My recent decision to leave my family to their own devices for a week and travel overseas raised more concerns from others, than myself. “How can you do that?” one acquaintance asked… “Won’t you worry?” So of course I started to worry about why I wasn’t worried. This was not a foreign thing for me to do. I have travelled regularly by myself … [Read more...]

Packing for Panwa

My personal mantra is that you always need something to look forward to. It doesn't have to be big! Like after I finish writing this post I am planning to make a coffee and go and sit in this glorious sunshine with a copy of the Herald. I am also looking forward to no alarms going off in the morning for the next two weeks. I am not a winter person … [Read more...]

How to pack for Cambodia

About six months ago, Mum asked me whether I would like to chaperone her during a trip to Cambodia and Vietnam. I take this sort of responsibility very seriously and agreed. Because I am a good daughter like that. And ten days away from the circus was appealing. Last time I went overseas, I packed at the very last-minute and took far too much … [Read more...]

Going to my happy place.

I was chatting to a mate this morning about how we were both coming back from a minor bout of the blues. And she was blaming social media, where she was watching people living these amazing lives, doing incredible things and comparing herself to them. Comparison is the total asshole thief of joy. This I know 100% to be true. Another mate in the … [Read more...]
