#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...

Ranty Pants – Not ashamed to “try”

  Im sure you have started seeing this video by Colbie Caillat floating around your news feed with many fangirls hailing her for her bravery and her very poignant message that we can all strip off our superficial makeup and that we dont need to “try” to be accepted by our friends and society. I’m calling bullshit.  Colbie Caillat is stunning, with or without makeup. Strip her face bare and she is as refreshing as a no makeup selfie “bravely” posted by Jen Hawkins, Lady Gaga or Ricki-Lee. These are naturally blessed girls who I think you would struggle to...

Integrity Rules

  Dear Carole, Here are my thoughts on why you didn’t win the public vote last night and take home the coveted prize, despite obviously being the most talented couple in the competition. It wasn’t because you and Rusty argued too much. It wasn’t because WA didn’t have the population to support the votes. It wasn’t because of your generation. The reason you lost the public vote is because you lost their respect. I watched every single episode of House Rules and to start with I fell in love with you both; I loved the banter, the jibes, the passion,...

TP5K – On Board the Blog Tour

So I have been dobbed in by Bruce the Almighty (aka my blogger hubby Ray to my Debra from everybody loves Raymond)  from Big Family Little Income to get on board this Blog Tour of sorts. The idea is each blogger answers the same four questions about themselves and their page and then introduces another three of their fave bloggers who then do it and you get introduced to a whole new lot of lovely people who may or may not tickle your fancy. Sort of like a chain letter with no hinky penalties for not following along. Or maybe...

Looking up X in the Yellow Pages…..

  So our copy of the White and Yellow pages was delivered last week. I have left ours on top of the letterbox in anticipation of the recycle bin going out this Wednesday and I can chuck them straight in. I have many memories of the yellow pages; taking them with and using them as a booster seat for G Man at the movies,  as a weight to soak up dog pee on the carpet over some paper towel, to put in the bucket of water with the Christmas Tree to stock it up and stop it from falling over, or to...

Losing my Shit – #allthesobs

  So I have a confession – hubby is home for a few RDO’s tomorrow and the in-laws are arriving the day after for a week. You would think I would be cleaning madly, and I am, well kind of. I have a load in the washing machine and a few more backed up ready to go. I have stripped the guest bed sheets and am thinking about vacuuming and wiping the inside of the microwave out. I have dropped the dog off to the vet, with Master J in tow, and need to go pick him up again soon. Then...

Our whirlwind Hopetoun Holiday

 So for those who don’t know, Mr Point Five is acting up in Hopetoun for three weeks. Acting up is the term used when you relieve another officer who holds a higher position to you. And by relieve I mean do their job whilst they are on holiday; get your minds out of the gutter Hubby is acting up as the OIC and was working 10 days straight so the kids and I used the excuse to get away to see him for the weekend for a mini-holiday just now. Also because Master J was beginning to tell his daycare that...

Offspring – wishing I had a sister, maybe?

 So whilst Mr Point Five has been away I have started watching Offspring, and just finished season one a few nights back. I have some issues. 1. I really don’t like Billie. I am hoping I will warm to her in the next season. I cant stand people who play games like bringing a date along to an event specifically to make an ex-boyfriend jealous; this behaviour doesn’t sit well with me at all. If you want someone back, then tell them. If you don’t, then don’t punish them. Pretty simple. She is mean and horrid and very petulant...
