After five weekends of consecutive drinking, Harriet Saunders has had enough.
Rolling from back-to-back hens weekends into charging full tilt at a 30th birthday at Betoota Races, Harriet’s decided it’s time to straighten up and start taking better care of herself.
Perched on the couch, mainlining three episodes of Heartbreak High whilst scrolling her Instagram feed, Harriet’s believed to have found the perfect inspiration to kick off ‘Operation Get Life Together’, in the form of an ad for some cute new homewares.
“Ooooh they do them in blush pink too!” Harriet yelled from the couch to her housemate Sarah, who was busy cooking a Lentil Curry in the kitchen.
“Or do we get bone white ones to match the splash-back?”
Determined to take a break from drinking, and instead nourish her body with some meals that don’t get delivered by a uni student riding an e-bike, Harriet told The Advocate her renewed energy for life wouldn’t just stop at replacing her soap dispenser.
“No more takeaway, no more frozen meals!,” Harriet told our reporter.
“I’m thinking I might start a membership with those DIY meal delivery services, do you know any good ones?”
Scrolling through her bank account to assess her current financial stability, Harriet was blindsided by the fact that she’d struggle to afford a weekly meal drop, thanks to her recent run of winery bus trips and bottomless brunches in the French Quarter.
“Fuck I can’t afford $120 a week to have to cook the stir fries myself when I could just find a Pad Thai for $12 instead.”
“Maybe I’ll go and chill out at Mum and Dad’s for a few weeks, that should straighten me out.”
