The one about the suitcase….

 Any “Everybody Loves Raymond” fans out there?? This episode is pure GOLD and perfectly sums up a VERY common problem in our household. Who unpacks the suitcase??? Debra and Ray go away and the suitcase stays on the staircase landing for three weeks whilst each waits for the other to unpack it. Its a battle of the wills until Ray needs to use it to go away for a work trip. Totally hilarious and if you have time, click and enjoy.         Mr Point Five and I used to use suitcases frequently as we live in the...

Dangling the Proverbial and oh-so Sexy Carrot

So Mr Point Five and I were watching Sunrise the other morning and they had a segment on wives using sex as a reward for their husbands for doing various chores around the home. I was looking over at hubby who was avidly watching the segment with a look of both abject horror and defeat on his face. I said to him See honey? You’re not the only poor bastard husband who has to earn his pleasure. There are enough of you to warrant an entire Sunrise segment   Now I know some of you may look pityingly on...

Suck it up Baby!

How do you vacuum?? I have a three tier system. 1. Stuff that MUST be picked up and put away(useful stuff that will be missed)/thrown in the bin as it is too big to vacuum. This stuff is annoying and I often test the limits of what the Dyson will or wont inhale as I am too lazy to actually bend over and pick it up. This step includes CARPERPETUATION –  (kar’pur pet u a shun) n. The act, when vacuuming, of running over a string or a piece or lint at least a dozen times, reaching over and picking it...

Put the laundry away? Yeah, not gonna happen.

There is something wrong with me. Seriously. I am a grown woman. I have given birth to two children. I maintain a home, of sorts. I used to hold down a full-time job of responsibility. And yet, I simply CANNOT move the folded washing to the room it belongs to. WORST JOB IN THE WORLD. My nemesis. Apart from Boris. I wish I had OCD. Not Obsessive Coffee Disorder, I have that. I would rather go and change a pooey nappy. Or Two or Five. Than relocate folded clothes to drawers. Why? Riddle me why??? This is my clean washing pile. ...

Nag Nag Nag – GUILTY!

So, apparently women nag. We do. I am guilty. VERY guilty. I wonder if lesbian couples nag each other? They are women. Do they nag each other?  Is one the designated nagger and the other the nagee? I’m willing to bet they don’t.  I say this because at the root of every single woman nagging is a man irritating the absolute be-jesus out of her.  A man who gets home from work, sits on his behind doing sweet FA, whilst the woman bustles about getting dinner ready, dishes done, kids fed and bathed, house tidied, all whilst her dearest husband...

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...
