Ten Things I love about my Husband.

Now I know I bag out Mr Point Five quite relentlessly on this blog. In fact, my Father in Law recently asked how my blog was going. I said it was going just dandy, thanks for asking. He asked if my latest post was another bad story about his son. I assured him it was – after all, where the fodder lies…… BUT There is nothing quite like hosting our little big boys fifth Birthday Party in the rain that makes me appreciate my husband more. After a emotionally tumultuous 18 months with my Dad and losing my BFF,...

My Food Fight with Point Five

SO, Wednesday night just gone, Point Five and I had our first proper barny since we moved here.  You know the sort, where one of you (usually me) storms out the front door, slamming it indignantly behind you and sulks in the driveway until you realize your partner isn’t coming out as they are righteously fuming as well and there is nothing for it but to eventually skulk back and hope they haven’t locked the door. Yep, one of those ones….. All over one of THESE Does anyone know where I am going with this?? No?? Lemme fill you in! I was at work all...

How it rolls to go out in our house – sigh…..

So, I posted a picture of our lovely day at the lake a few weeks back.  What I didn’t post was what goes on in our house to get us there. I didn’t think much of it as it is a regular occurrence if we go anywhere as a family or host family occasions, but I am in this mothers group on facebook and one of them was having a gripe over pretty much what happens all the time with us.  What surprised me was how many girls had the same story and how frustrating we all found it to be.  One said that it was...

Resolution shmesolution.

Oh my!! If I read another PC post on New Years Resolutions I think I may just puke.  Lets be realistic here people…whilst world peace and a permanently clean house would be nice lets focus on stuff that’s achievable for little ole me. Here is my list of things I want to do more of in 2013.  1. Improve the sex life with Mr Point Five. The poor darlings romping has slipped significantly since having kids and I am afraid the product I am offering him is not what was advertised when he accepted my proposal of marriage. I’m sure the poor bugger may have...

Sesame Street time – one of these things just doesn’t belong here.

Below are some of our Christmas Tree Decorations. They are a mix of handmade beaded decorations my beautiful (late) Grandmother made and used to hang on her tree as well as some beaded decorations I have made myself over the past 10 or so years. There are some gold filigree decorations I bought in New York, Boston and Arizona when I was there as well as a few other NYC souvenirs – check out the shoes and handbag – arent they to die for?? Also one from the Museum of Natural History over there as well. We each have a beautiful bauble with...

A problem fit for a King.

Mr Point Five and I have a problem. A King Sized Problem. You see, he thinks I pinch the doona, and whilst I dont exactly PINCH it, I may inadvertently steal it from him in order to stop his excessive snoring. We currently have a King Size bed with a King Size doona but apparently he wants more. He wants a doona ALL TO HIMSELF. No problems I say – lets get two single doonas and we can each choose our own. Win-win. He can have a light weight fairy fart of a doona and I can have the heavy duty...

Stop Hubby snoring in four easy steps!

The snoring night dance – you all know how it goes. You go to bed, kiss each other good night, he puts his earplugs in and you roll back to back. The first few hours are OK, you are both desperately tired so you fall into a deep slumber but something, you don’t know what, disturbs you at about 1am and you are awake. You are acutely aware that your husband is flat on his back and has morphed into a rabid snoring monster Your eardrums are assaulted in no regular pattern that could possibly be soothing.  The blend of chainsaw and choking...
