Day 1 – Me So this is me 4 years ago the day I married Mr Point Five, 7 months pregnant and happy as  a pig in muck ♥ Day 2 – Breakfast No excuses, I am disgusting I know.

NYE – what’s that again??

This is where I spent New Years Eve seeing in 2007 It is MARQUEE Nightclub in the Big Apple and I was there for three weeks (not at the nightclub, that would be bad, just in NYC) with my best friend (we had both left our prospective husbands at home) doing nothing but eating, sipping cocktails and shopping. On this awesome occasion I drank nothing but the finest French Champagne all night, had our jackets checked in at the door, wore the tiniest hot pink bandaid of a dress with matching killer heels (bought in Soho the day before), perved on celebrity (Jessica...

FML – just for a night.

I would like to take you back to a night about 3 years ago, give or take, when it was just one point five kids and Mr Point Five was working evening shift so it was just me and the G Man aged about 9 months. This evening was my first experience with what to do when your baby poo’s in the bath. RULE 1. don’t freak out and pull out the plug – you will lose sight of the poo once the water has gone as it probably has gotten wedged inside a plastic boat of some description. If there is water,...

You can leave your Hat on.

It was our son’s first birthday over the weekend and hubby and I decided just to have some close friends over with their kids for some drinks and a lunch BBQ with nibbles, salads and of course a birthday cake. Three weeks before I had ordered the champagne online to be delivered and reminded Hubby that he had to get the keg made and on for the blokes who would be there. A week earlier I had the menu written. Four days before I had the shopping list written out and ordered the bread rolls fresh-made to be picked...

My Husband the Chef

My hubby is a gorgeous man – he has a stressful job handling situations that would give the rest of us nightmares. He is a FANTASTIC dad with endless patience for being shot dead by a dinosaur and then coming back to life again with a single kiss (the latest game).  He knows that when I put the pink floral flannelette ankle length nightie on to come to bed to not ask for sex and when he DOES help with the housework, he turns the house inside out to get it done properly (not the slap dash job I do on...

What to buy a One Year Old

Master J will be one next month and as I was browsing through a list of Top Five Toys to get for one year old babies it occurred to me how much a waste of money even the cheapest of these baubles was. This is my list of Top Five things to entertain a 12 month old baby. 1. A box of tampons – guaranteed to keep a baby amused when they are accompanying you to the loo; they are handy and accessible. At least half an hour can be wasted popping the top off the box, pulling tampons out, examining...

Things I Know

I will have been a Wife for four years next month and a Mother for four years in March (yes for those of you who are good at maths, I was 6 months up the duff when we got married :), and these are some of the things I have learnt. 1. It takes one minute to heat up 9 chicken nuggets in the microwave2. It takes 22 seconds to heat a 210ml formula bottle3. It takes 30 seconds to heat a cold cup of tea4. Children have absolutely no concept of the notion of “being quiet”, especially if their younger...

Where to put the tree this year?

Just a little bit excited – our new Disney Christmas Centrepiece just arrived today and I reckon half the joy has been had in the look on G-Man’s face when we turned it on and the little houses lit up, the trains carrying all his favourite Disney characters went round the tracks and the dancing couples pirouetted their way around in the snow. I will pop it away tonight after the kiddies are in bed and it will come out again on December 1st with all the rest of our festive decorations. Anyone would think that Santa threw up at our...
