I love creative folk. There is just something about them that makes me smile. Is it their passion? Probably. Is it their eye for the finest of details? Totally. Is it their drive to get themselves out there to share what they love. Absolutely. But first and foremost, they inspire me to grow and see the world in more colour than ever before.

Kids these days freak me out, especially when it comes to technology. E’s two year old niece has understood how an iPhone works since before she was walking, most tweens are more technologically advanced than the next twenty something and there is always some form of new tech on the market (I still don’t understand how an Apple Watch works)! Back in my day (now I sound old) my siblings and I weren’t allowed mobile phones until we were working weekend jobs to pay for our own credit, we had one computer in our house that we had to take turns on if we wanted to play on or browse the dial up Internet, and video game consoles were just that, consoles to play on.

Cabaret, theatre, visual arts, comedy, burlesque and much much more, Perth City and beyond sparkles for a month of quirk, with something for everyone. I’m a huge Fringe fan and at the point of publishing this blog post I’ve already attended three Fringe events and have a whole bunch more up my sleeve. It truly is my favourite time of the year.

Plus it’s so much fun!
