'til Kitsch do us part…

Is anyone else here a hoarder?  I am and so is Mr Point Five. This is NOT a good combination as neither one of us can bear to throw stuff out. His excuse is that it may be “useful” one day; things like decorative tins, those cloths that wipe your sunglasses, DVD cases, ANY piece of paper that looks official…….he says “keep it, it could come in handy one day”.   This tub of electrical cables is a prime example of what MAY be useful at some point and we lug it from house to house with every move…....

How I met my husband – shh, its a secret.

Mr Point Five will fall through the floor when he reads this post – all of his friends and family think we met at a “karaoke” night which is essentially the truth if you go definitively by the word “met”. So he tells people this when we are asked and I wink and motion to a select few that I will tell my version of this truth when he is out of earshot. He gets so embarrassed by the words ONLINE DATING so shhhhh – mums the word OK? I had just moved back to Perth from living with my now...

Housework won't kill you – but why take the chance?

This sign should be on my front door. I have a love-hate relationship about being a SAHM. I love that I get to witness all the little milestones that my kidlets achieve and I love that I get to cuddle and kiss them whenever I want. I love all the little giggles that I witness and cause, and I love the convenience of being at home with all my things about me. I hate the fact that being a SAHM is not just that. It is also being a SAHC, a Stay At Home Cleaner, which I never really...

Sexting is NOT OK.

I have a confession. Its a bad one and I feel guilty. Very guilty. Imagine this. You’re in bed with your lover. You are having a kiss and a cuddle and seeing “where it leads” (or in my case most of the time you fall asleep) But in this case the hubby was on a promise so….. Your receive a text. Things weren’t yet beyond the point of no return.  What do you do??? Do you ignore it? If you do, do you wonder about who it may be throughout the whole lovemaking process? Does it bother you that you don’t know who...

Linky Blog – Choose Five

The Thing I’d Tell You has asked this question…..In a fantasy world, forget about spouses and loves, if you could fall in love with {or be best friends with, I don’t think it should all be about who you’d shag , so lets have some from both categories } a movie or tv character, name 5 you would choose. Not the actors but the movie characters. You have to tell us is my answer Number 1. Westley – The Princess Bride Oh My how I swooned as a teenage girl watching this!  Westley is dashing, heroic, totally gorgeous, leaps tall cliffs...

The best perk of Kindy

I have to admit, I am so very nervous about G Man starting Kindy next month. He has never spent a single day in day care and I have been witness to all his milestones, big and small, thus far. I am already envious of his teacher who will probably get to see him form his first letters and hear him say so many new words for the first time, except she won’t know him and won’t know they are new. I don’t want to even THINK about all the little milestones that will go unnoticed full-stop due to so many kids achieving at the...

Linky Blog – Advice to My Sons.

This blog is written with inspiration from The Things I Could Tell You Blog – cheers Melissa for taking me on a different tangent and making me think about the kind of boys I want to raise This week’s prompt: “If you could only give your children one piece of advice, what would it be?” Source:  via Melissa on Pinterest The quality that made me fall in love with my husband is his steadfast integrity, in his profession, his relationships with his peers and foes and also with his loved ones. Integrity makes a man. Without it, you will never succeed, not fully,  in...

Piffle to Trifle

I was watching an episode (or two) of “Everybody Loves Raymond” on New Years Eve (by myself with a bottle of wine as you do with two kidlets and a working hubby) – you know the one where Deborah tries to recreate Ray’s favourite dish that Marie makes, her famous MEATBALLS. If you havent seen this episode I wont give away the ending but let me just use the word “sabotage” and remind the cooking hopefuls that tarragon is NOT a classic meatball ingredient, no matter what the label says.  Anyway, I digress. My gorgeous mother-in-law is nothing like...
