I'm time-pressed and always counting the pennies as a single-mum writer, so going out has to be worth the lipstick. It's the year of discovering tantalizing Melbourne and, sometimes, a tease of Adelaide's treasures. Join me.

Host a high tea with hope
Family Violence isn't just a hot topic across all media at the moment - it's a complex part of daily life for many women and their children who need support from organisations like McAuley Community Services for Women. Can you be part of breaking the cycle of violence and help them to escape and heal? Jocelyn Bignold, CEO of McAuley, wants you to know that you can provide important life changing support to the 600 women and children who McAuley expect to help this year through their refuges, crisis accommodation and the very real, practical specialist programs that give women their independence away from harm.

The greater community has been known to ask, "Why don't they just leave?" Rather than understanding the complexity of her situation, there is frequently frustration aired when a woman has paid with her life for not doing so. They can leave when there is somewhere secure to go. Seven days a week, 24 hours a day, McAuley Community Support Services for Women is the "somewhere".
