It’s that time of year again where my fam­ily insists I be locked up. Not that I’ve done any­thing wrong yet —it’s just that they know some­thing embar­rass­ing is immi­nent. It’s the annual or bi-annual coun­cil pick up, you see. That time of year when dis­tract­ing piles of junk—no let me rephrase—someone else’s trea­sure lies on the curb for all to see. The very innards of their soul lie naked for pub­lic perusal.

It’s Brisbane's annual or bi-annual council pick up—that time of year when someone else’s treasure lies on the curb for all to see.

'Aussie, Actually' is now on Audible. The book is an honest and humorous account of Lois Nicholls' new life on foreign soil – battling through endless Brisbane summers, the struggles to make new friends, coming to terms with leaving her family behind and understanding the quirks of living in Australia.

Written by Lois Nicholls, narrated by Jane Prior.

I took my dog for a walk this morn­ing. I snuck out the back way, through the bush and along the fire track. I was rather hop­ing to avoid Slater. Slater is the neigh­bour­hood vagabond ...

Don’t cause a scene.  These were the unspo­ken words I grew up with. Cul­tured women don’t lose their deco­rum and tell shop keep­ers what they think of them. They main­tain their dig­nity and they leave. They remain in con­trol.  Not this time.
