So I have some uber good news to share with you guys. Yesterday Mr Point Five was accepted in the Sergeants Pool for WAPOL (Western Australian Police). I know that term is kinda obtuse so I will explain what it means. How Police promotion works in WAPOL  is that some ranks are time based, such as becoming a First Class Constable after five years of service (hubby’s current rank) and a Senior Constable after nine. After Senior Constable there is the rank of Sergeant.  A First Class Constable or a Senior Constable can apply for Sergeant. This annual promotion is achieved through putting in...

Our whirlwind Hopetoun Holiday

 So for those who don’t know, Mr Point Five is acting up in Hopetoun for three weeks. Acting up is the term used when you relieve another officer who holds a higher position to you. And by relieve I mean do their job whilst they are on holiday; get your minds out of the gutter Hubby is acting up as the OIC and was working 10 days straight so the kids and I used the excuse to get away to see him for the weekend for a mini-holiday just now. Also because Master J was beginning to tell his daycare that...

Happy Easter Shmeaster

Despite the honour and privilege of being married to a Boy in Blue, the pain-in-the-arse times are definitely all the public holidays and special occasions during the year that I am left stagging it with the kids.  Sadly, our emergency/shift workers etc. always work when others are out having fun; where there is alcohol and car travel involved, it is generally a really busy time for our boys. Most public holidays Mr Point Five does 12 hour plus shifts, and over a festive period such as the four day Easter “holiday” we hardly even see him.  It wouldn’t be so bad if...

Life behind the Thin Blue Line – a novella :)

I think the first time I had a glimmer of what I was getting in to was about six months after Mr Point Five and I had met. He had just started at the academy and I had just handed my driver’s licence in for three months as I had accumulated one point too many. Aherm. It was the first Saturday afterwards and I grabbed my keys to duck down to our local Coles which were literally 200m at the bottom of our street.  Hubby looked at me, dumbstruck. What on earth do you think you are doing? he asked. I explained...

Get out the tissues and Hug your Children.

So yesterday I sat down to write a post about the Sleep War and how the husband always wins it. I was going to regale you with a tale of woe, and moan and bitch how us wives always have to beg and grovel for that elusive lie-in that our husbands simply expect every morning.  Its amazing how shocked they can look when we bring up the possibility that perhaps THEY could arise at sparrows fart with the kids… Nobody can feign ignorance like the male species, I swear…. I was going to write about how Mr Point Five...
