A Postcard From Broome


Dear Everyone ,

I have left the Territory ! Not for good , rest easy Ill be back ( yes that’s a threat AND a promise !).

I am currently on a working holiday in Broome , Western Australia which is , according to the brochure in font of me , 2,389 km north of Perth and 1,859 km south west of Darwin NT. I am working at the Roebuck Hotel as a skimpy barmaid 4 hrs a day , 6 days a week and the rest of the time I am shopping , exploring and lying around this place ….

I have to say the accommodation this venue gives it’s workers makes every other place I have traveled to for work look like prison camps ! We get our own hotel room which is serviced daily and one free restaurant meal a day usually valued around $40. The last time I worked away I was given a room above the pub which in order to go to the toilet I had to walk down two corridors and unlock several doors .. then there was a storm and the roof caved in above my room. The meals were whatever was left at 9pm in the bain maree of the pub next door – usually something nice and cold ;). So needless to say this time round I am in heaven !!

I never did explain to everyone exactly what my blog title is about – well the skimpy style part anyway .. Now seems an appropriate time to do this. I fly to mining towns around Australia and work for two weeks behind the bar of the local pub , usually dressed something like this …

In some places , every hour a girl will walk around the bar with a jug and collect money then all the skimpys will change into a bikini or lingerie for half an hour while working. I made $5000 in one week doing this ! This particular hotel does not make you do jugs ( pun intended hahaha ) which I like because I hate doing them although the extra money would of been handy. Even without the extra tips I still stand to make $2000 in 2 weeks working bugger all hours so gotta be happy with that !

This Sunday we are being taken on a tour by the locals we have met so I will have more to report on Broome after the weekend. Ill leave you with a few more happy snaps and another apology for being so sporadic with my posts , I am literally all over the place at the moment !!

Cheers ! Kel Xx

Bless Her Little Fluffy Socks .. What Was She Thinking ?????


I love summer – it’s one of the main reasons I love the Top End of Australia so much.

There are some things I love about winter though – yummy comfort food like roast lamb dinners and hot chocolate , snuggling under my doona ( Duvet for all you non Aussies !) and rugging up in my comfiest winter PJ’s complete with fluffy bed socks .

The other day I was reminded of my love of fluffy socks when I passed a bargain bin in Woolworths containing not one but TWO pairs of fluffy socks for $3 ! Talk about a bargain ! Down south you are lucky to get one pair for under $7 so I snapped them up straight away like the clever girl that I am … So clever I didn’t stop to think why Woolworths were selling them at that awesome price .

I have since worked out that the reason fluffy socks are so cheap up here is because we don’t actually have a winter. We had our coldest April night in 40 years over the weekend , it was all over the news and locals could not stop complaining about how freezing it was. The temperature was 18 degrees. Not minus 18 degrees ,18 above zero my friends and that ,apparently, isΒ  ridiculously cold. I’m not at that stage yet ….

Any way I have no idea what I’m going to use these socks for. Cleaning comes to mind , they do look like they would come in handy when i need to dust the furniture ( yeah like that happens often !).

I searched google and came up with a few inspirational ideas …

If Chaos was smaller I could use them as little doggy jackets ..
