Pinned toot

Updated to reflect job change... I’m a Greens member of the Legislative Assembly from Canberra, Australia. Here for progressive policy-making, environment, inequality issues. Also into roller derby and other sports. If I post lots about baking, I’m probably stressed. If I post lots about my dog, I’m probably happy.

We have reached the stage of needing to hire staff. Which is pretty amusing, given the result is not even officially declared yet.

Today’s badge. I took it off for the second lot of cameras this morning.

The dog has expressed his disapproval of my work hours today by pissing on the kitchen table while my back was turned. I clearly am going to have to arrange a dog-walking roster for the kids. He does this stuff when he doesn’t get enough playtime with his humans, and I’m his main human.

Taking my wheels to work in case I have to pop between Assembly and party offices during the day.

Made it to the bus stop on time! Today will be a good day :)

Good morning! I am going to catch the bus to work for my new job today 😊

I have two family members awaiting restrictions lifting so they can get health treatment. One lives in VIC and cannot start chemo in NSW for a very serious cancer. The other lives in NSW and is in constant pain until it is possible to travel to Melbourne for surgery.

Campaign to bring back curly cables. Sign my petition. Boost if you agree.

I should probably go home now. Got a few unanswered phone calls from yesterday.

It’s good out here in Spring. The grass grows and if you don’t look too close you can’t even see the cracked earth underneath.

Billy buttons everywhere yesterday. We called them tennis ball plant when I was a kid.

Yesterday’s walk was good. Went to the other Murrumbidgee.

Packing a bag for a nice long walk tomorrow. Can’t bloody wait. No people and no phones.

Him: we need ice cream to go with that chocolate pudding

Me: I can’t go to the shops in my PJ pants and slippers, I’m an MLA now.

Him: yeah you can and I’m gonna livestream it!

Me: …

Ahem. Good morning fedi. I got home at 4:30am, up again at 7am and now watching the 16yr old at footy training.

It will shock no one that I have woken up stupidly early today after a night of strange dreams. Oh well. I’ll get up soon and start Election Day.

We are reaching that time of night where I should put the bulldog to bed, but first I have to rub aloe vera on his exczema. Yes, dogs can get allergic rashes... which is ironic, because his first owners had to rehome him when they realised they broke out in hives every time he touched them.

It is finally TGIF for me and I can’t believe I made it here so early in Election Eve.
