Five towns in Seven years.

  When people first find out my husband is a police officer of of the first questions they generally ask is Ohhhhh, what’s that like?? To be honest I don’t exactly know how to answer them. I don’t know what they want to hear. Stories about handcuffs and drug deals gone bad? We have only ever lived country since Mr Point Five joined up; we have never lived in the city as a police couple. My only experience of being a his Wife was as a country coppers wife as we got married at our first posting 1700km away from...

Ranty Pants – Double Standards on DWTS.

  Hands up who else watches Dancing with the Stars? (the Aussie version I am going to refer to here) Did anyone else witness the utter embarrassment that was Kym Johnson fawning all over Matt Cooper last week? Here is an article if you missed it. I was squirming just watching her gush all over his physique rather than his dancing. And it wasn’t just her. Helen has been known to ogle and make the odd very sexual remarks about the male performers and Edwina backstage (God love her usually) doesn’t see anything wrong with gawking at the male bodies either...

Moving on up….moving on out……

So, if most of you follow me on facebook, you will know that Mr Point Five was made up to Sergeant. Sadly this usually means that in order to gain the promotion you have to move station. So we will have been in our current town for less than 12 months when we move again later this month or early next month (we haven’t got our actual move dates yet, but the transfer is official). How it works is that you get given the official promotion/station transfer. Then you fill in an itinerary of ALL your household items as in...

Ranty Pants Post – and a little editing…..

  This picture above has been doing the facebook rounds for months now. And it totally gives me the shits. I cannot STAND it and I feel like screaming every time someone waxes lyrical about its wisdom. Its BULLSHIT people!!!! As Mothers we are always making the right decisions, because they are right for you and your family; nobody elses. Motherhood is NOT about doing everything wrong, its not. And who has the right to say that to you anyway? And circulate it as truth in a cutesy picture to mask its condemnation and blame? We don’t need forgiveness; we should be proud...

Five things about me – Shhhhhh

I have been tagged by the lovely Jane from Almost Jane to tell you five things about myself that you prolly don’t already know yet. They’re not a secret, I don’t have any of those, they just haven’t come up in one of our conversations yet OK, so here goes. 1. I have a University degree. A Bachelor of Arts in Politics. I never went to my graduation. I had the paperwork framed and it sat on my toilet cistern for many years until it fell off with a violent flush and shattered the glass. It eventually got thrown out...

Coyote Ugly – Bloggers gone Bad

So my blogger bestie Jane from Almost Jane  and I were cyber chatting last night whilst perving on all the photos that were flooding our facebook newsfeed from the Pro Blogger Event happening over on the Gold Coast this weekend (or hashtagpbevent for the twits out there – thats not pb, peanut butter, its pb Pro Blogger – do NOT mix them up. A peanut butter event is a whole lot more sensual and a little risqué) We saw all the familiar faces who had somehow managed to leave their kids behind and travel up the coast from Melbs, Sydney and...

Pawthos in Pictures; 2006-2014

                    Not long after Mr Point Five and I met we were at the shops and there was a sign for a Jack Russell in the window of a pet store. Hubby turned to me and said with these puppy eyes I have always wanted a Jack Russell and I know what I would call him: Pawthos. Needless to say, we came to the shops sans canine and went home with an extra heart on board. Scuse the grainy pics – these were taken on my not so smart phone back in...

#policewifelife

So I have some uber good news to share with you guys. Yesterday Mr Point Five was accepted in the Sergeants Pool for WAPOL (Western Australian Police). I know that term is kinda obtuse so I will explain what it means. How Police promotion works in WAPOL  is that some ranks are time based, such as becoming a First Class Constable after five years of service (hubby’s current rank) and a Senior Constable after nine. After Senior Constable there is the rank of Sergeant.  A First Class Constable or a Senior Constable can apply for Sergeant. This annual promotion is achieved through putting in...

Are you a Good Mum? Yes, you ARE!

 So G Man has made a little friend at school whose name is Sam. Sam lives with his Mum, Dad and three sisters just out of town and has had a few sleep overs here with the boys. Its the first time I have had another child stay with us and I had to laugh when I had his Mum over for a cuppa a few days back and she said how much Sam liked staying here – cos he got a picnic for dinner! I mean, I know G Mans dinners are not quite the norm, but I...

I am not your Mother – #thingsyousaytoyourhusband.

  So Mr Point Five and I have been more than a bit sporadic with the bedroom activity of late, what with him having a bad back, being away for more than a few weeks, then on to arvo shift and whatever else the sex-devil throws at us. We had last Sunday evening scheduled in for some nookie action after this BBQ: (insert facebook status about said BBQ) “The joys of parenthood: going to a police farewell BBQ, the first one I have really relaxed and enjoyed since we moved here and Master J, who has been toilet trained for...
