clarebowditch I've been thinking a bit about basic human goodness, thanks to a conversation with a mate. Here I am in an early morning airport taxi... or is it a divvy van? Too sleepy to mind, really - at least it's warm. And on mornings like this I am suddenly startled to contemplate the sheer amount of people who slept rough, in the cold, last night. Wondering how many brave schools there are out there who talk to their students about homelessness, and get them involved in helping? Because I remember being a school-kid and thinking I could help, and getting involved at school, and doing something (anything), and how powerful that felt. And how thy feeling starts to wax and wane as we get older. Why do we doubt our basic goodness? How can we remind each other? What better use of social media or work or play could there be? Love to hear your stories. Thanks. Xx 2d

  •   greg.armstrong @melanievaz My world changed forever in 2005 when I first heard @clarebowditch version of Fall At Your Feet. Amazing rendition that took Neil Finn's stellar song beyond superb! I was totally hooked after 20 seconds and still am totally am with CB. As far as I'm concerned, Clare's a national treasure! 2d

  •   melanievaz @greg.armstrong haha whatta fan. If I was her, I would be stoked with that. :) 2d
  •   jemmaleee @greg.armstrong folks like CB, the finn boys and a few other crew around...not many...I think are tapping into kinda a true world music.

It's like this one little riv...You know what I mean :-) 2d

clarebowditch This dog is an exception in Bali - he had his own hair-dressers. His name was Momo. He was the guardian at our accommodation. He ate my god-daughters undies and swallowed them whole. He rammed like a wombat. He stank like a fish. We loved that dog. One week home from #bali and we're missing him. X 6d

  •   clarebowditch @greg.armstrong my sons talk fondly and often of you Greg. They ask questions like "Does Greg like Flyying colours too?". It's like they think there's only one person in music-appreciation, and it's you! So cute! 6d
  •   greg.armstrong @clarebowditch Aww that sounds nuts, but so lovely. Please tell those amazing boys that I do like Flyying Colours too and I've seen them play a couple of times, but my absolute I favourite is their mum! Oh and Paul McCartney and George Harrison (Wish I could see him play :-( ) 6d

clarebowditch Last night a possum broke into our house and half-are both these fruits. Second time this week. I'm calling the sheriff. 1w
  •   outsidelisa This happened to us once! First night did exactly this. Second night, walked right down the hallway, turned and looked at me holding my newborn on the couch, then headed straight into my bedroom! My brother in law caught him with a fishing net and relocated him. It was an exciting night to say the least! 1w
  •   travelling_philbury Rather a possum than a rat! I was house sitting once and woke up to half eaten fruit in the kitchen....thought it was the dog at first, took another few days to get the real culprit! Shudder.... 1w
  •   zoe.dee Nowhere near as bad as the time a bird flew down our bedroom ornamental fireplace and then wreaked havoc for the next 9 hours.... #shiteverywhere #birdgate 1w
  •   petreener Probably a mad scientist possum trying to make a hybrid fruit-the peapple @clarebowditch 1w
  •   cheriede Aww Clare how cute! Though you may want to start charging board? Food? Hehe 1w
  •   andrewnewman1010 I fear that the possum is not acting alone. Obviously a pear of them. 1w
  •   lanamilton Fruit often gives possums eczema (apparently), so that possum's doing him/herself no good!! 1w

clarebowditch Cool @bigheartedbusiness story; apparently Ms Kate Middleton is wearing innersoles designed by my cousin Rachel Bowditch, and named after our grandmother. They are handmade and the story has caused such a fuss (appearing in Vanity Fair just now) that they are now shopping 200 orders a day all over the WORLD! Go Alice Bow! So fantastic! It's the "Gotye runaway success story" of innersoles! So proud! Xxx 2w
  •   pipandpolly I always feel for Kate knowing she'd be expected to wear heels but yay to your cousin - love it when good things happen to good people who've worked hard 2w
  •   pantsoptionalgypsy I NEED!!! Heels and I are not friends. xx 2w
  •   calypsodesigns Amazing! Alice Bow has a new fan 2w
