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...

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...
