He is only five….five towns, five houses.

This is our Master J last week. He is Five years old. This is his fifth town and fifth house he has lived in. Sometimes I forget that, and everything it entails. Tonight Mr Point Five and I are relaxing, watching The Americans with a beer and a glass of wine. Master J was up and down like a frog in a sock from bedtime on. “I cant sleep. My foot is itchy. I miss my dummy. I need a glass of #8221; All of these were met with a sigh of exasperation and eventually, an hour and a half after...

The honeymoon is over….

So the holidays are over, school went back today and I am still unemployed. Today has been the first day that I have dropped the boys to school and come home all by myself. I have to say I didn’t like it and I am busting to get back to work. I feel like a bludger being at home and I have no tolerance for housework. Mr Point Five is at a conference in a neighbouring town for the next two days and I am aimlessly wandering around at home. There are crafty things I COULD be doing but I...

I want to win THIS! #enterdontenter

I was recently approached by Flowers for Everyone to help them promote their Valentines Day Love Cave Competition. I thought oh yes, everyone loves a good Valentines Flower competition, I’ll enter it and then spread the joy to my readers so that they can have a shot at winning a bunch of token roses for Valentines Day. But then I clicked on the link. Oh MY!!!! Yep. You get a shot at winning THIS! For TWO freaking nights! I nearly emailed back and said Nah mate, its OK, the less people who enter this baby the better my odds are of...

Because he’s mine, I walk this line.

One of the aspects of Mr Point Fives job that I take very seriously, is the fact that he makes an enormous impact on the lives of others. When his phone goes at 1am I am acutely aware he is leaving us; more than likely to rescue a beaten woman and her children from her enraged and drunk husband, to pull a barely breathing body from a car wreck and start CPR until the ambulance arrives, to stop someone from taking their own life who had called the police in a last ditch effort to save themselves or any other number...

Living starts NOW!

We are here! Due to Master J’s perfectly awful stress hives/bedwetting regression/unsettled behaviour from the past three months of upheaval and uncertainty, the boys and I left Mr Point Five up in our old town to sort out the packers whilst we drove 650km to Perth three days early with a trailer and a screaming cat. Half way down when we stopped for fuel, I received a call on my messagebank from the cattery which was left two hours earlier, wondering what time we were arriving as they were about to close. After a flurry of messages to, and...

Jamberry Giveaway

Helping out a fellow LEO WAG (Police Wife) with this post. I was sent a sheet of Jamberry Wraps to try from my mate before we moved house and I thought, this will be easy, you just need some heat in the form of a hairdryer and presto, instant prettiness for weeks on end in less than 15 minutes; PERFECT for moving house when your polishes and remover will be “in a box” somewhere. But then I realised that my hairdryer is not at the transit house where we are staying and that I wouldnt be able to show you...

I want to get off the Merry-Go-Round.

When I met Mr Point Five he had already been accepted into the Police Academy for their next round of intakes. I wasn’t necessarily bothered or un-bothered about dating a police officer, (although being married to one with whom you have children is an entire other ball-game) and I didn’t really take into account much the public perception of him as a law enforcement officer. He was my boyfriend, a man with one of the best and bravest hearts I know and I knew he would do his job with the utmost of integrity. As the years have gone past and...

The House that keeps on giving – part TWO

Guess what?? We are moving town AGAIN! Yes, this will be our 6th town/7th complete house move in just over 8 years. INSANE. Following my last blog post and a few “well placed emails” last Sunday, and after 5 weeks of suitcase living, within 48 hours we were offered 4 options for our future. One was not really a viable option and the other two involved us doing a complete house move within town, with no option to move back into our beautiful heritage home much before Easter, if at all. The fourth option, after only 12 months of living here, was...
