Snobsville Mothers Online

Tiffany Beau Gahn

Hey Snobvillians! So we’re new to the area. Just wondering if there are any recommendations  for travel agents? We’re looking at going to FIJI! Yassssssss…..We live near the Dacey Road shops, so somewhere near there would be great. TIA.

Priscilla de Toff

Um, I don’t mean to be rude or anything, but is Dacey Road actually considered Snobsville? I thought that was the South side, which is a totally different suburb outside the Snobsville border. Which is fine. Just wondering. Curious.

Rebecca Smart

So, you totally can go to Fiji. I mean its a pretty cheap holiday and you don’t have to see your kids much if the kids club is any good. But I’d avoid it if you can. Its actually very third world and kind of dirty. They have cyclones and stuff. I’d choose Hawaii. A bit more expensive for your small holiday (I assume the real overseas holiday is later in the year? I’d recommend Croatia. It’s gorgeous), but Hawaii is sooooo much nicer. And they serve champagne on the flight.

Phillipa Francis

Agree with Rebecca. Croatia is GORGE. You’ll love it. I’ll PM you my travel concierge’s details. She specialises in Europe.

Gemma Smith

Make sure you take some milk of magnesia and  an emergency stash of a good quality macro nutrient vitamin C probiotic. You can’t eat organic in Fiji. I mean, you can, but its a little TOO organic if you know what I mean. Like, grown in actual gardens and sold on the side of the road organic. A coconut we bought still had dirt on it! I’d stick to resort food and stock up on supplements just in case. It’s not like there’s a local Thomas Dux. Maybe Rebecca is right. You should head to Hawaii instead.

Gemma Smith

Oh, and by the way, Priscilla is actually right. I mean, I don’t mind you being here. But that’s not Snobsville. It’s not even in the catchment for Snobsville Public! You pretty much have to go to a Private school from the South side. I mean, I would anyway. I hear South Public is a performance school. That’s not education.

Jennifer Joule

That’s not fair Gemma. I heard South Public is a pretty good school. Not Snobsville good, true, but just think how creative they’d be.

Phillipa Francis

Our House Manager went to South Public and she still managed to achieve an excellent education. For a House manager I mean. Well, she was there until her parents were able to get her into Snobsville Public anyway. Actually, I don’t know much about the public education system. We’ve never had to use it.

Veronica Black

People still go to Fiji? I thought that was last year’s thing. Anyway, DEFINITELY take your own baby food. I mean, if you have a baby.

Tiffany Beau Gahn

Yeah, it’s definitely Fiji. We’d love to afford Hawaii or Europe but its just not in the budget unfortunately. Is there an issue with South Public though? My son starts there next week. Do they have their own page I should join instead? I kind of thought Snobsville was like a generic area, not just one or two towns.

Elizabeth Hartley

Oh Tiffany – does that mean your nanny will be available for a week? Mine is taking a holiday right in the middle of term! Actually, she’s going to Fiji.

Marley Jackson

Fiji is lovely, we just got back last week. I didn’t need to take baby food, although my little one is nearly 2. Just book it online. We used a site called www.fijionline.com.au. Much cheaper. And you should definitely stay on SMO. And Gemma, coconuts grow on trees, not in the ground.

Priscilla de Toff

Well, you get what you pay for. I mean, I could not live without my travel concierge. Could. Not. Live. Without. Her! And if a nanny is able to go…

You could try your luck with planning a holiday yourself – I personally, do not have the time, with all my charity work, and taking care of the house and kids. Its actually a privilege for me, not a chore. That’s why I only hire the very best help. Our cleaners are spectacular. PM me for details.

Anabelle Wina

Oh my God this happened to me too! I was searching for a parking spot EVERYWHERE. NOTHING. The kids were whining and I was all out of fermented snacks. I really needed to get to the bottle shop – house manager forgot to stock up on Prosecco. Anyway, I saw this woman parking in the VERY LAST SPOT. I was annoyed at myself for not sending house manager to do it herself. And then I noticed, she had older kids – AND SHE WAS PARKED IN A PARKING WITH PRAMS SPOT!!!! No prams, not even car seats! I mean, how selfish can people be? This was an absolute emergency! I pulled over and waited patiently. I was going to take her spot when she left and give her a good serve when I did. I was FUMING!!!! Anyway, she came out of the chemist carrying what looked like a blue puffa. Not the clothing type, the medicine. Like Ventolin or something? And then I realised she hadn’t even taken her kids in! She’d left them in the car! What if the chemist had burned down? What if someone had stolen the car with her kids in it? I should have keyed her car and let down her tires. Never got a spot. I’m being forced to drink cider tonight. House Manager is sooooooo fired.

Oh wait, wrong post. Sorry! Definitely Hawaii.

Also, I need a new House Manager – any recs?

Priscilla de Toff

Anabelle, how horrible! I’m so sorry you had to go through that. Makes our conversation about Fiji vs Europe seem quite trite really. Not that there’s any comparison anyway.

Gemma Smith

I wonder if blue puffas will come back into fashion this season. I might get my teal one dry cleaned just in case.

Marley Jackson

There’s no law against leaving kids in the car, and there’s no legal reason that people can’t park in a PWP spot. Its just a courtesy.

Anabelle Wina

Totally beside the point Marley. It’s just selfish! As if her puffa thingy was so much more important than my errand. And to not respect how difficult it is to get things done with little kids! I mean, I assume she’s done it herself given she had two older kids. She was far too mature to be a nanny.

Marley Jackson

You could have always left the kids in the car if you were in such a rush.

Anabelle Wina

Wow Marley. Just. WOW.

Veronica Black

Priscilla I would LOVE that recommendation for a cleaner. Ours are useless. They’re not even Korean. Are your cleaners Korean? We had Korean Cleaners called Jenny and John years ago. Is it Jenny and John? Don’t know their last name.

Sorry about your terrible day Anabelle. Some people are so selfish. And we should really all be supporting each other on this group. Why do women like to tear each other down? If you can’t say something nice Marley…

Erica Smalls

Oh, um, awkward, but that was me. Sorry I took the last PWP spot. My son and I were on our way home from hospital after having a severe asthma attack. He’s supposed to take it easy, so I left him in the car with his 12 year old sister. He’s 10. He used up all his ventolin while waiting for the ambulance the other day.

Anabelle Wina

Oh. Well, thanks for apologising. It’s okay, hubby got some prosecco on his way home from work. A little late, but alls well that ends well. Boy did I need it after getting the kids to bed so late! You know, after waiting for a parking spot for ages and all.

Tiffany Beau Gahn

Thanks Marley. I’ll try that site. Sorry, we don’t have a nanny Elizabeth.

Anabelle Wina

I have to say I’m feeling very bullied here. I mean, common courtesy is not too much to ask. Surely I’m allowed to point that out without being attacked!

SMO Admin

Ladies, be nice to each other please.

Tiffany Beau Gahn

Good news ladies! I got a package deal for Fiji. All booked and ready to go! Thanks for all the suggestions. I love this group!

Elizabeth Hartley

Speaking of blue puffas, do Aldi still have them on sale? Not for me of course. I’m fully stocked. For the kids.

No nanny? Wow, you’re brave.

Priscilla de Toff

ALDI? Well, like I said above, you get what you pay for….

Anabelle Wina

You cannot buy your puffawear from Aldi. I mean, even for the kids! Is there even an Aldi in Snobsville, or are we back to South Side?

Phillipa Francis

Oh my God. No. Just No.

Gemma Smith

Oh, no, they are probably all made in China from completely unnatural materials. Mine are always made from organic fabrics. The Down puffa I own is my favourite.

Marley Jackson

Gemma, you do know what down is made from?

Gemma Smith

Well, no, but its completely organic. And its certainly NOT ALDI!

Elizabeth Hartley

Um, okay, now I feel bullied. Admin?

SMO Admin

Ladies, you were warned. This post has become too controversial. I’m turning off comments.
