My mum is my hero. She’s always been the person I look up to, setting the bar for how I want to be in the world. Sadly I know not everyone can relate to having such a loving, easy relationship w their parents / parent, but my mum (Helen/ Helly Keighery) has made it easy. She’s there when I need guidance but lets me walk my own path. She is the one who instilled and encouraged my creativity from day one. Her voice saying ‘go Ell, you can do it’ no matter how big, weird or wild the dream, has made it - made me - so that I’ve able to and dive in and take by the horns the rich crazy & rewarding life that I so enjoy today. She’s pulled me into line when I’ve floated away from my core or my ethics, though again she’s really done that by leading by example. She’s who I get my ‘amazing’ style from (evidenced by our green bag / Aldi bag coordinated outfits) She is loved by many, not just me & our fam, as she’s been an important player in so many lives. As a drama teacher, social worker, friend, sister, daughter, artist and activist, her reach is far and she always sticks up for what is right. She works hard, Loves a drop, loves a sing, has a deviously twisted sense of humour and is pretty much the funnest, kindest person I know. Emotional intelligence personified, lifting others up is her game, especially little kids and anyone travelling outside of societies ‘easy lane’. I will be bloody thrilled if I can turn out to be half the woman she is. She is also - as I am in many ways - very private. So I haven’t shared on here about a very personal and challenging journey she’s been on with breast cancer over the last few months. It’s been full on, as you can imagine. When your favourite person on earth is going through shit, you feel it. Not to mention fear it. But, she’s given me the green light to partake in this show, a coming together of women, to share a little bit of our story, and to raise awareness (and an eyebrow or two) The show is ‘Ladies Night’ and it involves this clutch of amazing, brave bishes (said with love) learning and hopefully nailing a dance routine which MAY or may not involve us getting our kit off at the end! Yikes. (cont. in comments) ...

Last night @pubchoir was tooooooooooooo much fun. I don’t even care that I woke up sick as a doge.. I can’t wait to share this ‘sweet sweet content’ with you. I don’t know if I should say this, but, historically, I don’t really like choirs. 🤭 I just find the *usual* take on choir very stiff. Even those groovy middle upper class red resin earring hipster ones too. But something about Pub Choir was very right. It was boisterous, but they nailed the parts. It was inclusive, but didn’t whiff of tokenism. It was just reallly fun. If you’re looking for a good time with a spicy repertoire and an amazing choir leader who could double as a stand up comic, this is your choir. Also, wine. (that’s probably the real reason I felt so at home, right? Eeeeep!) Thanks for having me Astrid & co. #weir #unkillingheidi #pubchoir #redresinearrings vs #rocknroll

Thanks my lovely @laurabinks for accompanying and last minute editing in the green room! I might put my talk on fb. When I have a sec. Runnin HOT atm. Many things. All good things. But all at once. As always.  See you on the other side! Xx #tmnt #raph #badboys #badturtles #badturtles #whatyagonnado #literature #auslit #poetry #crush

Look, yes, it’s out of focus but I love this pic from @gaytimesfestival - because - for once it has my darling friend and longest collaborator aside from Jesse, @madsdavey in it! Due to her mammoth Nord keyboard she often gets stage bumped into the shadows and cropped out of live shots! But there! Tharrr she is! Rocking that ginormous Nord like a legend. Love you, Madzies. Check out her bewitching krauty synth band @warplane_band - they’re playing tomorrow night at @thegasometer I believe! So. Tough. So. Good.  #stagesister #musicalmagical  #mygirlgang pic: @ameliastclair
