So life got in the way, my health went in a downwards spiral and work got crazy, so my giggle plan got put on the backburner.
Now though, I have something new to giggle about.
I’m halfway through the process of coming out.
Yep, I told my mum and I’ve told a lot more people in my life, and if feels good.
Mum didn’t take it as well as I’d have liked, to be honest she asked if it was her fault but I guess it took my years to come to terms with being gay, so I should award her the same.
Next in the line is dad, which is going to be the hard one. Can anyone say homophobe? Cause he probably wouldn’t, not if it meant acknowledging gay people exist.
Wish me luck!
This one isn’t a giggle post, it’s a thankful post.
Today I realised how truly thankful I am for all my family and friends. I seriously have the most amazing group of people in my life. I’m more lucky than I ever thought I could be.
They make me laugh all the time, even when I don’t want to, which makes this the best giggle post ever.

Today was one of those days that wasn’t very funny. It was all work and no play, so I went looking for something to make me laugh.
I didn’t have to look far.
I watch Friends every night, without fail, because it relaxes me and makes me happy when I go to sleep, which is important.

Sunday! Today I worked Community Cabinet for work and spent the day chasing ministers and the Premier.
Giggle of the day:
Premier Campbell Newman v bunch of skittish cattle. He jumped a mile.

Well it’s the Saturday after. Last night I got to see (and drink!) with all my amazing friends.
Honestly we all laughed so hard and so much that I couldn’t possibly tell you about it, but today I drove back to Emerald with Zac, who is living here now! Yay! Also – Zac is my best mate, for anyone who doesn’t know.
He was given a box of chocolates as a going away gift, but left them on the seat and they all melted. We’d probably driven about two hours when he decided he wanted one. When I opened up the box I realised they were all melted and literally liquid held together with the wrapper. So Zac, in his infinite wisdom, decided to DRINK the chocolate.
It went everywhere.
Road trips with best mates can’t be topped

I’m a bit late posting this one! Sorry!
I’m back on the Sunny Coast this weekend with all of my amazing friends and last night we all went out to a local bar to have a few drinks and catch up.
I can’t pinpoint exactly one giggling occasion but I can tell you I didn’t stop laughing the entire night.
I love my friends and I miss them more than anything, but having them so far away makes it that much more sweeter when I get to see them in the flesh
So I’m currently sitting in Emerald airport waiting to board my flight to Brisbane (yay!).
A little girl just broke free of her mum and came running over to ask me why I had purple on my shirt. I looked down, not comprehending because my shirt is orange and she was just pointing at it going “purple purple purple!”
Then I realised I was wearing my Pink tour shirt and she meant Pink.

Also, this kid is adorable and I have since learnt her name is Eva, she’s 3 and her little brother’s name is Ethan.
It may be 7:30 in the morning, but today’s giggle is over and done with.
At 4am I fell out of bed, whacked my shoulder into my bedside table, got my finger caught in my iPhone charger cord and landed, hip first, on the charger.
At 21 years of age I fell out of bed, and boy do I have the bruises to show it!
But I sat on my floor in the pitch black, with my injured body parts screaming, laughing my head off remembering all the times I fell out of bed when I was a kid.
The shock, the pain and the confusion floods your still-sleeping brain all at once.
So I sat there, and I laughed.
Then I went and got some ice for my shoulder.

Day three already, wow!
Today was full of laughter. I was lucky enough to attend the official opening of KME, a mine nearly Emerald, where I live in regional/rural Queensland.
I got to go on an underground tour of the mine, which I’d never done before and I was super excited (and a bit nervous).
I was the only girl in the group of journos and every one of the guys seemed to become ridiculously worried about my wellbeing.
Every time we stepped over some water or rocks or had to duck under something at least one would ask “you okay, Kel?” or “you good there Kel?”.
It was equally endearing and hilarious, I laughed at them, telling them my footing was probably better than theirs!
I had a great time though, exploring the mine and how it all works, it’s beautiful down there.

Sometimes as a journalist giggles are hard to come by, and today was one of those days. A fatal car accident and a whole load of other very serious stories.
But I am the giggler and today I got a serious case of the giggles when I tripped over my own foot this morning, fell over and landed face-first on the tiles.
That bit wasn’t funny, but me looking over and seeing my watch which I’ve been searching for for weeks sitting under the couch made me laugh, a lot.
Also knowing how ridiculous I would have looked to anyone seeing me laughing my arse off despite crashing into the tiles at 5am.
I may have bruises on my wrist and a banged-up knee, but I have my watch back!
