Melbourne’s Premier Home Stylist?

Dunno why, but I always feel like people are judging me in public. Does everyone feel like this? Like, whatever, I can just stare back at them and make them feel uncomfortable, but I can’t shake the feeling that they… Continue Reading →

Trees, Walks, and I’m Bad at Pruning

You know what? I don’t mind walking. As in, as part of my job. Every day there’s a call for anyone who wants to walk around the grounds, and about half of our residents take up the offer (usually the… Continue Reading →

Plumbing: I Refuse

I HATE PLUMBING. I can do loads of stuff, yeah. I’m really good, in case you hadn’t noticed…like, I can patch a hole in a roof faster than you can say ‘woah, is that a leak?’ I can do repairs… Continue Reading →

I don’t often get stuck to one person for a whole day, but…it’s happened. Hooray. There’s an old Italian lady called Gianna who just talks constantly. And, like, I mean constantly. Literally. She has this weird compulsion to keep talking… Continue Reading →

Perth…A Real Place??

Uh, yeah, so…driving to Perth takes a really long time, I’ve just figured out. I was browsing the web for some gigs we could elbow our way into when one came up in Perth. I’ve never actually been there, so… Continue Reading →

The People Have Spoken: Make Pool Fences?

So now everyone at work is all worked up because the elderly folks are protesting. If you were a newcomer, you wouldn’t be able to tell. Actually, I’m pretty sure the visiting families can’t even tell. I only noticed that… Continue Reading →
