Top Ten Tips for a Police Spouse.

 I have had the experience of being married before to a “regular” hubby and we went about our daily business as two individuals who did their own thing, loved each other and co-habited. Until we didn’t. I am grateful every day that we didn’t make it because I adore being married to my Boy in Blue. Being married to a Police Officer is totally different to being married to a regular Joe. It is a responsibility, a burden and an honour/blessing for those of you who are religious. It is often thankless. It throws up challenges and has its rewards and...

Getting to know your Husband after Kids

I met Mr Point Five in September 2006. We were engaged the following April, pregnant in June, married in December and with child the following March. If you do the math we had only known each other for 18 months before we were thrown into being new parents. We only went out club dancing once, we never did karaoke, went to one ball (but I was preggers and we were home by 11pm), never went camping, never got drunk together, never played a board game together (except one game of scrabble but he cheats so we don’t do that anymore) or...

For Sale; wedding dress, worn once by mistake.

SO by now most of you would have cottoned on to the fact that I was married before Mr Point Five came along. In fact I was still married WHEN he came along 😉 Nothing naughty going on; I had been separated for just over six months before we met but had to wait until the 12 month mark to apply for a divorce. I have done a previous post about my first day being physically single as part of a linky blog, entitled First Day which kind of tells you how we separated, but I thought to write about...

How Husbands and Wives Move House.

So, as you know, we are moving house next week. I thought I would give you a run down of the process of the moving thought process behind our marriage, as this will be the fifth time we have moved house in six years, with 4 out of 5 including kidlets of sorts. It usually goes like this. I get a phone call from hubby at work telling me that his transfer to (xxx) has been accepted. There – that’s his bit done, his share of the moving thought process. I immediately start thinking. And planning. And thinking. And planning. And...

101 Positions, 102 Excuses.

How much time do you get Home Alone?? I got half a day about three months ago and I was so excited I spent the entire time cleaning our house FFS!!! Before that it was before G-Man was born, so about five and a half years ago. Serious. I have come to the conclusion that its not healthy. Our sex life is suffering.  I initially put it down to the exhaustion that comes with having kids, I’m sure you all know what I am talking about, where your bed is more attractive than your partner. But Master J has...

I'm a terrible, terrible housewife….

This is my clean washing pile. Well, it was when I took this picture a few months ago. Actually, its the G rated version of it. At the moment it is up to the Y in the word SORRY and is balancing on a knife edge of total collapse. I was at work the other day and knowing my total detestation for putting the clean washing away, hubby thought he would earn some sex brownie points. He folded the LOT and then sorted the folded clothes into piles for each family member. I arrived home to each pile stacked...

For the want of a thumb drive, the war was lost.

So, this happened last week. I’m not proud of it, but it happened. Hubby and I both have colds at the moment. It would beg to differ that we do, in fact, have the same cold. Yesterday we both went to work. I picked up the kids on my way home, got dinner ready for them and ran their bath. I made myself cheese on garlic bread as I couldn’t be bothered to cook and I threw some steamed fish into the microwave for  hubby. After the kids were in bed for the night hubby turned to me from...

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...

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...

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...
