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...

My Marriage is as good as my box of chocolates…

I think the MOST important test when it comes to long term living compatibility with a partner is chocolate. Specifically, what ones you like and what ones they don’t.  For marital bliss, these two things need to be the SAME.  Chocolate is what makes everyone feel better. When we get given a box of chocolates as a gift it is win-win on all accounts and I LOVE that! No leftover chocolates and you always get the ones you want. I love cherry ripe. He doesn’t. He loves anything caramel. Yetch. I adore peppermint. He doesn’t. He loves peanut brittle. Tastes burnt to me....

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...

I had a person….

I had a person.  A Christina to my Meredith.  We were both only children and yet we were each others sister. We had known each other since my Dad accosted her on my first day of High School at the train station. She was wearing my school uniform and my Dad asked her if she would “take me to school”. She had been riding the rails solo for many years and Im not sure what she thought of me needing an escort. Even though she was still in Junior School and it was my first year in High School, she showed...

I’ll give you a dollar if you can find my keys.

So, Mr Point Five got home on Saturday after being away for a week and he had to start work this morning at 6am.  Dum da dum daaaaa – cant find his work keys which he SWEARS he left at home for the week and is absolutely positive Master J has “relocated” them whilst he was away.   Slight bit of guilt on my behalf as it would therefore have happened on “my watch”. Fairly important and will cost us over $1000 to replace them plus a massive amount of paperwork and headaches so my number one task today was to FIND them!  Sigh. ...

The night that could have been…..

Mr Point Five got home yesterday after being away for a week. SO you know what that means when the kids go to bed. Yep, a bit of the old horizontal sheet boogy. He had a shower and a shave. I slipped into my non-floral/flanny nightie and the kissing had JUST started when…… RING RING……RING RING. I knew who it was and I had to answer. My poor Mum has been in hospital for about 4 weeks now and I talk to her every day when she goes in, which is a common occurrence.  It isn’t an option – if I don’t speak with...

Pregnant excuses.

Disclaimer: NO I AM NOT PREGNANT! My husband needs one of these T-Shirts when I am pregnant. My biggest stuff up was going to an ATM and withdrawing $200. At least that was my intention. What I actually did was put my card in, entered my pin, requested $200, collected my card and walked away without the cash, leaving it as a bonus for the person behind me in the queue. It wasn’t until I went back to my waiting husband and he asked for his half that I went “Doh” (well, not exactly Doh) and turned back to the ATM...
