Fussy Customers

Uh oh. I just looked at my appointment calendar, and I’ve got Candice Merriman’s labrador written in for after lunch. I’d forgotten about that. I now remember pencilling it in last Thursday, with some reluctance. After our last session, I vowed I’d think hard about working with Candice again, and secretly hoped the whole thing would fizzle out. But then she called me while I was having a tense moment

Moving to Mornington

I packed up my life six years ago and moved Cambridge, Tasmania. I never looked back. I left a stressful life for one of leisure and it truly was the best decision I’ve ever made. I used to work in the city doing a stressful job that was supposed to be 9am-5pm but ended up being more like 7am-10pm every day. I was working myself into an early grave and

Holiday House Painters

I’m staying at my holiday house for the next month. Every January my family and I spend our summer holidays in Phillip Island. It was easy when us kids were all at school and uni, because we all had January off. It got more complicated when we started our careers because a lot of us had to be in the office, but due to a recent change of events, working

Midland Car Legacy

My late grandfather grew up in Midland, Western Australia, and went on to live there his whole life. He could have moved to somewhere closer to the city or closer to the beach, but he loved the suburb he grew up in and didn’t want to leave. I really admire that about him and that loyalty is something that I’ll always hold close to my heart.  I haven’t been back

Broken Air Conditioning

I love my holiday house. My parents and I have gone to the house every summer for at least ten years whilst I’m on school holidays and it’s the best. I spend all my time swimming in the pool and hanging out in the gardens. The house is massive and really old but beautiful, and I feel like some sort of French princess when I’m living there.  Sometimes it gets

Car Safety Software

My friends and I have this software installed on our phone that lets us see where each other are at all times. It sounds creepy but we’re all happy to show each other our locations because we’re best friends and we know everything about each other. It’s especially great on a night out when we’re not hanging out together but are close by. It helps us meet up and hang

Doggy Business

A lot of people come to me for advice on why their four-legged friend is acting up. It’s not my area of expertise, exactly, but as a pet wedding celebrant I’m more attuned to subtle behavioural cues than most. To keep it simple, let’s say the enquiry is about a dog. The first thing I’ll suggest is that the dog may not have everything it needs to feel like part

Pets and Humans

I’ve been wondering if I should branch out and become a real marriage celebrant, rather than just a pet one. My parents always told me that conducting pet weddings and giving pet marriage counselling didn’t count as a real job. For the most part, I ignored them. I’ve been making a fine living with my little niche, and I do love it. But the other day I went to the

Wedding Tinting

I’ve planned some strange pet weddings, but I think this one takes the cake. For starters, I’ve never married a conure to a bulldog before. How did these two animals even fall in love? It’s just strange. But then there’s the theme of the wedding, too. Window tinting? That’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard. Of course, I’ll get it done, because this couple deserves to have the wedding they’ve

Dream Bathroom Renovation

I have the tendency to fall asleep on the couch just minutes after sitting down. This could be after I’ve just woken up in the morning or after eating dinner. No matter what the circumstances are, I’ll end up falling asleep. This is obviously quite a problem because I keep losing time to sleep, but I also somewhat enjoy it as well. Whenever I fall asleep during the day I
