Perth, Australia. Population: 2.0 million. Fourth-largest city in the country.

Hello. Welcome. My name is Trish. Please come in to my living room.

Husband Lyle

Trish: “Smell it. I like that one. That’s really nice.”
Lyle: “That’s not too bad.”

I make my soap. And the reason why I make my own soap is because I like to use cosmetics and products on my skin because they are more natural. And a lot of stuff you buy in the shops is just full of chemicals and they’re not what they say on the labels.

Identical Twins Melissa and Jasim

My living room is my life. It’s about what I treasure. It’s got photos of my family, my friends — I like just having things that I love around me.

I have a tendency to leave the back door open. And they walk in — bluetongue lizards.

Wedding cake decoration

These are a few of my special pieces that I keep in my cabinet here. This was a glass-blown wishing well that I got made up for our wedding cake.

And these were the flowers, and these were actually handmade, these little roses, but as the years have gone by, they’ve become discolored, unfortunately. But that’s still original.

I’d like to say good-bye from myself and my husband and from Perth, Western Australia. It’s been an absolute pleasure having you here. You’re welcome anytime.

Thank you. Bye.
