Life behind the Thin Blue Line – a novella :)

I think the first time I had a glimmer of what I was getting in to was about six months after Mr Point Five and I had met. He had just started at the academy and I had just handed my driver’s licence in for three months as I had accumulated one point too many. Aherm. It was the first Saturday afterwards and I grabbed my keys to duck down to our local Coles which were literally 200m at the bottom of our street.  Hubby looked at me, dumbstruck. What on earth do you think you are doing? he asked. I explained...

Marrying Mr Point Five

So if you have loved me long time, you will know how I met Mr Point Five. If you are a newbie, you can catch up on the story here – its worth it, I’ll wait. Then there is the story of how we got engaged I proposed to him. Yep, I’ll wait again…… It was April when I popped the question and we were officially affianced. Upon consultation with my best friend at the time (sad story you can read here) who was a pharmacist, and of course asking google as well, we made the decision to go off...

Get out the tissues and Hug your Children.

So yesterday I sat down to write a post about the Sleep War and how the husband always wins it. I was going to regale you with a tale of woe, and moan and bitch how us wives always have to beg and grovel for that elusive lie-in that our husbands simply expect every morning.  Its amazing how shocked they can look when we bring up the possibility that perhaps THEY could arise at sparrows fart with the kids… Nobody can feign ignorance like the male species, I swear…. I was going to write about how Mr Point Five...

Vent Alert – shipping Mr Point Five off to the home for sick husbands.

Yesterday I posted this status on my facebook page.   “Two Point Five Kids is of the opinion that sick husbands should be shipped off to a home for sick husbands until they are #8221;   It was a big hit, with one reader suggesting they get sent back to live with their Mothers whilst they recuperate (what an AWESOME idea) and another reader saying she actually rang the hospital and begged them to readmit her husband after minor surgery as he was being such a sook at home.   Now I am not begrudging Mr Point Five getting...

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...

If love is blind, marriage is certainly an eye-opener!

Marriage can be effing hard some days. The past few months or so, Mr Point Five and I have been butting heads. A LOT. Nothing major, just niggles all over the shop. A constant pea in our bed, if you will. I think it mostly has to do with stress, and it takes its toll. There are three major ones for us: First – Hubby has applied for a promotion for work and with a few stages to go through and each stage being upwards of six weeks, it is a long and drawn out process. What we do,...

You asked for it – the Poo EXPLOSION!!!

So, yesterday there was poo. Lots of it. A plethora if you will. I don’t believe in much outside my existential being, but I DO believe the Poo Fairy was watching over me yesterday in the form of my husband. Let me explain…. I generally go to Albany (our nearest “shopping centre”, about 90km from home) once a week for G Man’s speech therapy. Whilst there I sometimes take the boys to Maccas for lunch afterwards. It has a good sized indoor play area (I’m sure you know the ones) and a McCafe that have Chai Lattes. Yum. I always do...
