    My friends in Melbourne constantly thought I was wearing my pyjamas in public because I refused to take off my comfy tracksuit pants that happen to look like pyjamas. I also got an amazing pair of cheap ugg boot knock offs and wore those around. If I'm feeling energetic later, I will take a picture of my stunning outfit for you all.

    FYI, zero f**s were given about the fact it looked like I was wearing pyjamas. I was warm and comfy in their stupidly cold weather!

    So a month or so ago I picked up a free netball stand on the side of the road. Yes it has a sign on it saying please take me, I'm free. The problem is the base is cracked and to be able to make it stable And stop it from tipping over it needs water or something to weigh it down. The cracks meant it couldn't hold water or sand.

    Here is the real bogan bit!

    I had just finished a glass of wine. You know the classy box type(actually it was a more expensive one but still..) and went to get myself another when suddenly it was empty. Oh no! Anyway.. I sat there looking at it and suddenly I had a brainwave! I took the dispenser lid off and stuffed the bladder inside the netball stand base, filled the bladder with water and popped the dispenser lid back on and stuffed it down into the base further. Result? With a couple more classy boxes under my belt we will have a perfectly stable netball stand.
    Pure. Genius.

    I thought so too.

    The funny thing is the more expensive wines in boxes are really hard to get the dispenser off but the cheap ones are much easier to remove so I'm going to have to buy some cheaper box wines to full the base up. Lol

    No. I have never in my life bought fruity lexia!










    Fruity Gordo...





    But generally most dry whites that aren't too sweet are OK in the mid range.

    It's very hard for me to feel like a bogan as I live in one of the most bogan areas in Aus! So if I'm wearing shoes and pants to the shops I'm waaaaayyyyy overdressed!

    But this makes me question - am I not bogan, or is it just that everyone around me is so much more bogan that it makes me seem not bogan? If I lived elsewhere would people be gawking at me and whispering "check out the bogan!" ???


    How do I know if I'm bogan??

    You know. Deep down you know.

    I recently had to go to the podiatrist because my heels were so badly cracked from wearing only Havaianas!
