Punked by Mr Point Five

 For those of you who follow me on facebook, you may have noticed a status a few months back about how I got well and truly punked by by my Mister. I had a more than a few inquisitive comments and even a nosey PM about what happened so as the steam from my ears made typing extremely difficult at the time, a few months after the crime, I thought I would share. If you happened to see my home tour video before it was not so ceremoniously yanked from the interwebs (#videogate), you would have seen that upstairs...

Officers in blue bleed red too.

  My husband leaves for work each day and sometimes the only confirmation I have that he is still alive during those 8 hours is the news page I have on my desktop background to tell me if there is any breaking news that he may have been involved in. No news is good news eh? He responds to callouts at 2am to jobs where the only details he has is “shots fired” or “domestic with a knife”. He puts on his blue uniform and leaves his family to do his job; protect the public. He has responded to calls where...

Bits and Pieces

So, we are back from our little 2 week holiday; arriving home to 46C and no power was a sheer JOY I can tell you! Our house LOOKS like it would be cool, but bake those limestone blocks in 40+ temps for over two weeks with no inside cooling and it was a veritable oven!! The walls literally radiated heat from the inside. Mr Point Five is back at work and the boys have started school again for 2015 which means I am also back at work; no rest for the wicked. Hiccup did a runner on us whilst we were...

Ranty Pants – Be Someone who saves a Life.

I have seen a lot of blog posts in light of Rosie Batty winning “Australian of the Year” for this year. One author in particular admitting to being in knowledge of a domestic silence situation involving a child and doing nothing about it; not even the simple act of picking up the phone. I felt sick reading that admission. That phone call could have turned someone’s life around; prevented years of further abuse. A PHONE CALL PEOPLE. It’s the absolute definition of cowardice to not do it. Whilst I certainly wouldn’t recommend going door knocking, it costs nothing to pick up...

Love my Friends

This picture is so true. Except I cant do stuff with my friends cos they all live 650km plus away. And making a new friend in a town with less than 300 people is really, REALLY hard. The chances of me meeting a like-minded, age appropriate, quirky mannered, non-PC, and time available person is pretty much zippo. I think I am pretty much destined to spend the next 2-3 years here simply “socialising” without actually bonding with “the one”, you know? Not that there is anything wrong with socialising, I am surviving on that at the moment. The people...

Why I DON’T want my sons to see me naked….

So I have seen many posts along these lines of late. Posts that advocate letting your children see you naked, embracing your body in front on them. Letting them know that its OK to not have the perfect home for your soul. (I can only write this from a perspective of a Mother of sons. I am sure I might feel differently if I had daughters as the entire dynamics would be different.) The writer in the linked Kidspot article above states that “I want them (her sons) to see what a real female body looks like. Because if...

Merry Christmas from Me

*waves excitedly* With a few nips and tucks (read: EDITS), my little old blog is back in its entirety. As Basil Fawlty said about the War, just don’t mention videogate #allthesqueeees For those of you following along on facebook, you will know that our Christmas Day did NOT go to plan. As I have mentioned before, being a Police Wife and Mum, you need to be adaptable. In face if I could choose only one quality that a police wife needs to possess, it would be adaptability. Mr Point Five finished his shift Christmas Eve at 4pm. He was...

A branch from my Family Tree

I love local history. Mr Point Five is fascinated with Ancient History and can watch hours of Roman/Medieval documentaries, but me, as soon as we moved here I was instantly into the Shire Office to suss out our towns past. I wanted to know how our town came to be and see the faces of the people who built it with their bare hands. I love seeing the old homes/businesses that are still standing and I LOVE living in one of the original town historical buildings which is over 120 years old. I love wandering around our house and...

Uberkate Cuff – Giveaway

I have to say even though I have a tendency to pull the total piss out of anything that is “trendy” or a “must have” item such as mason jars used as drinking jars with stripy paper straws, pineapple mantle displays and matching wall decals, not to mention the faux deer head mounted on walls, there is ONE thing that a lot of the uber successful bloggers have that I have been secretly jealous of. A piece of Uberkate Jewellery. I would watch my Facebook news feed pop up with random selfies with what was obviously a design by Uberkate...

The Final Push 2014.

I cannot believe we are finally here! This time last fortnight we were two days away from prepack, mentally preparing for 10 days of hell. Monday  10th November we had the packers in our house packing everything we owned into boxes. The trick is to be one step ahead of them and make sure you have 2 suitcases on your bed which are sacred. In these you pack the TV remotes, Fist Aid supplies, kids stuff for 10 days, your stuff for 10 days, 2 coffee cups, a teaspoon, 2 forks, knives and plates, sugar and a jar of instant coffee. Ask...
