Married? Spa is always
greener on the other side
I'd be an idiot to suggest that
singledom is better than married
life (my beautiful wife reads this).
But imagine for a moment that
I'm Kristen. Saturday arvo wines
at the Civic Pub morph into a blur
at the Knightsbridge Penthouse in
Braddon before "somehow" you
Crace. Awesome! By the way, this
is an actual account of a night
described to me by Kristen. The
spa had colour-changing LED
lighting under the water. You can't
make up this stuff!
Imagine you "somehow" woke
up on the deck of a beach house
at Potato Point near Batemans
Bay even though you initially
went out for a quiet dinner in
Dickson. These aren't stories told
by the married guy. These are the
adventures that form the tapestry
of our single lives.
Fortunately for the institution
of marriage, these adventures are
all just a by-product of the search
for love. Sure, marriages fall over
when the thrill of the chase
becomes more desirable than the
actual goal -- love.
But before my wife looks
disapprovingly at me over the top
of this page, I have some advice
for the married: live vicariously
through the fun, single friend in
your life. Just remember, they
wish they were you.
The proof is below.
FASH 'N' TREASURE AT EPIC
Izabelle and Jenny McLeish, Arietta Black and
Angelia McLeish, of Banks.
Sally Anne Kahl, of Latham, Karan Day Kahl, of
Holder, and Simone Vecchi, of Hughes.
Lyn Regan, of Chisholm, and Christine Eden, of
Sandra Smith, of Holt, with Melanie and Zoey Smith,
Sarah Samsara, of Waramanga, and Rebekah Biggs, of Aranda.
Katherine Harper, of Dickson, Samantha
Brancatisano, of Melbourne, Elina Kozlovski,
of Sydney, and Brenton Dart, of Sydney.
Fash 'n' Treasure at EPIC was another big
success on the weekend as attendees
showcased their wares.
The spectacle is Canberra's one and only
fashion event bringing together local
wardrobes, fashion designers, fashion shops,
milliners and stylists.
Canberrans come each month to indulge in
a day of shopping for clothes, shoes, bags,
hats, accessories and more. Photos: Daniel
As a single gal, married life
seems like the bee's knees.
From the outside, it looks
exactly like a pile of puppies.
I can only see positives. Who
needs an electric blanket when
you have a plus one? Canberra
winters look super cosy when
you have a hunk-o-spunk to
keep you warm.
No more kids' tables at
weddings for me -- a partner
gives you the golden ticket to
an upgrade. It's interesting
being sat between great Aunt
Myrtle and her moustache and
little 7-year-old Sonny, who
loves putting his chicken
nuggets in your wine. However,
my hand is unashamedly up for
the move up the ladder. When
married, I'll have a captive
audience to hear me whinge
and automatically have
someone on Team Kristen,
right? Even if, at times, my
perspective may be slightly
Finally, a permanent car-
karaoke partner sounds
amazing. He could be Sonny to
my Cher. John to my Yoko, Ike
to my Tina. Oh wait, maybe not
that last one.
So if you're single, fabulous
and also looking to upgrade to
the grown-ups table at
weddings, please apply.*
