’til Kitsch do us part…

Is anyone else here a hoarder?  I am and so is Mr Point Five. This is NOT a good combination as neither one of us can bear to throw stuff out. His excuse is that it may be “useful” one day; things like decorative tins, those cloths that wipe your sunglasses, DVD cases, ANY piece of paper that looks official…….he says “keep it, it could come in handy one day”.   This tub of electrical cables is a prime example of what MAY be useful at some point and we lug it from house to house with every move…....

Sexting is NOT OK.

I have a confession. Its a bad one and I feel guilty. Very guilty. Imagine this. You’re in bed with your lover. You are having a kiss and a cuddle and seeing “where it leads” (or in my case most of the time you fall asleep) But in this case the hubby was on a promise so….. Your receive a text. Things weren’t yet beyond the point of no return.  What do you do??? Do you ignore it? If you do, do you wonder about who it may be throughout the whole lovemaking process? Does it bother you that you don’t know who...

The best perk of Kindy

I have to admit, I am so very nervous about G Man starting Kindy next month. He has never spent a single day in day care and I have been witness to all his milestones, big and small, thus far. I am already envious of his teacher who will probably get to see him form his first letters and hear him say so many new words for the first time, except she won’t know him and won’t know they are new. I don’t want to even THINK about all the little milestones that will go unnoticed full-stop due to so many kids achieving at the...

Piffle to Trifle

I was watching an episode (or two) of “Everybody Loves Raymond” on New Years Eve (by myself with a bottle of wine as you do with two kidlets and a working hubby) – you know the one where Deborah tries to recreate Ray’s favourite dish that Marie makes, her famous MEATBALLS. If you havent seen this episode I wont give away the ending but let me just use the word “sabotage” and remind the cooking hopefuls that tarragon is NOT a classic meatball ingredient, no matter what the label says.  Anyway, I digress. My gorgeous mother-in-law is nothing like...

NYE – what’s that again??

This is where I spent New Years Eve seeing in 2007 It is MARQUEE Nightclub in the Big Apple and I was there for three weeks (not at the nightclub, that would be bad, just in NYC) with my best friend (we had both left our prospective husbands at home) doing nothing but eating, sipping cocktails and shopping. On this awesome occasion I drank nothing but the finest French Champagne all night, had our jackets checked in at the door, wore the tiniest hot pink bandaid of a dress with matching killer heels (bought in Soho the day before), perved on celebrity (Jessica...
