Deb’s World Friday Feature
Winners & Losers #11
Welcome to Week 11 of my Friday roundup, where I share some of the good, the bad and the ugly ‘stuff’ I’ve taken note of during the week. I’m really enjoying this collection of bits and pieces and love getting your responses – thanks so much to everyone who reads, comments and shares. You are very welcome to join me in this quest each week by leaving me a comment with your own winners and losers. You can also leave me a link to your favourite post from the week and I’ll be happy to share.
Musings on a Monday quote 🙂
Have you discovered the Good Place on Netflix? It’s a quirky show that really appeals to me with its often hilarious discussions on life, morality and being good vs bad. This quote made complete sense to me in the episode, so I thought I’d share it with you, hoping it makes sense in today’s real world too. It may be complicated but there are lots of good people in the world working hard to make it a better place.
Did you know I share a new quote each Monday on Instagram? Are you following me on Insta yet – click here to join in the fun!
If you read my post last week, you’ll get this one!!
Political cake stall sign 🙂
I laughed at this cake stall sign which was doing the rounds of Facebook over the weekend – at least it put a smile on a few faces 🙂 Only Aussies will get these references but believe me it was very clever!!
The Federal Election here was ugly, cringeworthy at times and not a pleasant time for many – thanks goodness it’s all over now!
My sister and brother visited last weekend, and we managed to get a photo of us together and sent it to mum for Mother’s Day.
No matter how old you get that cartoon is still true!!! It made me laugh 🙂
The list below is also very fitting given my inclusion of siblings this week – FYI I’m December which apparently means I’m the Bossiest 🙂 I don’t agree with that! What about you??? Please share just for some fun.
You can’t ask that!
This is a great show on ABC TV where real people get asked real questions that would normally be off limits – hence the name of the show. This week was about surviving a disaster and I know all about that.
Although my own disaster was 41 years ago, I only wrote about it, for the first time in any detail, last year. You can read it here, if you haven’t read it before:
So the show brought back many memories for me as you can imagine. I found I related to so many of the answers given and felt their emotions very clearly. Always an interesting and thought provoking show, full of honesty!
When can I borrow a baby and try this? 🙂
Surprisingly my daughter won’t let me borrow her baby!!
Baby wombats are high on the cute list this week 🙂
Did you know a group of wombats was called a wisdom? Just one of the many things I learnt this week!
Eurovision and Australia??
I admit to watching the voting this year, it was a great distraction and much more fun, than watching the election results!
Do you know why Australia is even in the Eurovision contest, when we are obviously so far away from Europe? I wondered too – read on…..
Australia has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest five times since their debut at the 2015 contest in Vienna. The country’s best result in the contest is a second-place finish for Dami Im in 2016. Australia also finished in the top ten in three of its other appearances in the contest, with Guy Sebastian finishing fifth in 2015, and both Isaiah Firebrace and Kate Miller-Heidke finishing ninth in 2017 and 2019.
Australia’s participation in the 2015 contest was set to be a one-off event, the plan being only to perform again the following year had they won, but it was confirmed in November 2015 by SVT that they would participate in the 2016 contest.
Australia is the first country from the Oceania region (and the third country outside Europe, after Morocco and Israel) in the Eurovision Song Contest to participate in the contest.Source
Today is my eldest daughter’s birthday and this time last year I was with her, as I was 6 years ago for her big 30 – being on the opposite side of the world is hard at special times but she’s in our thoughts and we will speak with her.
Years ago I wrote a post about each of my daughters, comparing our lives at the same age. It was a lovely experience looking at the differences, and similarities, of our lives at a certain age. You can read it here:

You may have noticed that I’ve been much quieter on the blog than usual this week, but that’s a good thing!
