One plus one = FIVE???

I am sure you have all uttered the words together before, usually when you have had a few too many wines or your kids are doing something really sweet, like oh I don’t know….sleeping.  The words that go “Gee we make cute babies” Sigh. “It would almost be criminal not to have another” And then you look at each other and laugh hysterically at the thought of going through all that again, knowing that you are both happy with our family of four. That’s one each. Perfect. Done. But then you are home one day telling your hubby about...

A few delicious Minutes in Bed…

Yesterday I got a lie-in. It happens once a week to ten days depending on Mr Point Fives roster. I didn’t actually go back to sleep after hubby got up to the kids at twenty to seven. This is an example of where Mr Point Five and I are different. He gets up when he wakes up, even if it is his turn to sleep in. I, on the other-hand, am not insane.   I lie there listening to my loved ones do their thing without me. I hear hubby settling the predictable argument of what goes on the kids TV pre...

Mr Point Five: My Bad.

Here are my top three things that Mr Point Five currently does or has done under his new mantle of parent that make me shake my head with amusement, annoyance and total wet-my-pants laughter. 1. He never checks what’s in the nappy before he takes it off for the bath. Now to me this is common sense, not as a mother, or a woman, but as a PERSON WHO DOESN’T WANT TO GET POO ON THEIR HANDS AND EVERYWHERE ELSE. Maybe its because I am the chief nappy changer in the house and I have ESP when it comes to them...

Whilst the Cat’s away…….

So, anyone who follows me on facebook will know that Mr Point Five has gone away for two nights, three days for his work.  Five years ago I would have been devastated (we would have still been in our first year of courtship, you know all the lovey dovey stuff “how will I survive without sharing your air”? etc etc barf barf.) but five years and two children later I have discovered that there are some perks to having hubby away. 1. You get to drift off to sleep with no snoring monster next to you, who is as hot as...

My Mothers Day

Sooooo, how was everyone’s Mothers Day?? Mr Point Five and I don’t do the Mothers Days, Fathers Days, Birthdays or Christmas presents. We both agree that it is pure commercialism to get you to buy things you dont necessarily need just because a day on the calendar says so. We buy what we want throughout the year when we see it on special or when we need it. For example, my “Mothers Day” pressie this year was a new computer as mine shat it when we moved house a few months back and Hubby saw a really good deal at Harvey Norman so...

The Pros and Cons of the Man Flu

The past two weeks have seen me come down with a cold, hubby catch the same cold or the Man Flu version of it, and then palming it back to me again. We have given up sharing the same bed as the snoring contest is simply amazing and NOBODY wins that battle. Our sex life is in the toilet as kissing requires the ability to breathe though your nose and the actual act of love-making requires one of you to get active on top which is the last thing you feel like with a head full of cotton wool...

Will you marry me??

My post How I met my Husband – shhh its a secret got so many nice warm comments that I thought I would follow it with the story of when I proposed to my Mr Point Five. It was the anniversary of our engagement yesterday ( I was reminded by hubby eating a Drumstick for dessert and me asking what the special occasion was and his reply “it was five years ago today that you asked me to be your husband – I cant believe I said yes!”) and coincidently it was Easter Saturday and the West Coast Eagles first home game...
