Being Australian, it is my duty to love the Wiggles, and, as an Australian parent, ensure that Michael loves the Wiggles, so, when they announced their North American tour, I was on high alert for pre-sale codes for their Richmond show, and I found it in Dorothy!
Last night, with our third row tickets in hand, we drove for two hours in each direction… Continue

When I first met Chad, my handsome, American sailor, I had absolutely no concept of military life, other than hearing the ARMY wives bitch and moan about how Johnno and Stevo just wanted to drink all day, after returning from a week-long exercise! Continue
In fact, even though I had watched countless US ships come and go, filled with…

I am so fed up and frustrated with the political correctness that hovers over this country like a dark cloud, dictating and distorting honest human behavior!
Before I moved to the USA, a white man was a white man, a black man was a black man, due to the simple obvious fact, that by looking at him, that was the color… Continue

Last night, I had the absolute life-changing experience of seeing Lady Gaga in concert from about 10 rows back. Ok, perhaps not life-changing, but certainly thought provoking and f*cking UNBELIEVABLE!
If you had read my post Temper Is A Busy Signal you'd know that, for two days, at the expense of two phones, I tried desperately to win tickets to… Continue

With a tornado warning in place, and the bathroom ready for lock down, I decided that now was as good a time as any to shoot first Vlog (video-blog) post.
And, what better subject than the word CRIKEY!
Because lets face it, if a bloody tornado hits now, I'll be saying a whole lot of… Continue

Monday night, my beautiful Granny left for Heaven, and although I miss her immensely, my heart is happy that she is no longer in pain, and, is free to sing and dance in Heaven.
Granny had been in and out of hospital over the past few weeks. One day mUm would call to say she didn't think she'd see the morning, the next, Granny was saying… Continue

After my initial horrific solo mUm travel experience, I developed a strong 'fuck you' approach towards anyone who even dared look in my direction when Michael cried, however, on my recent international travels, again as solo mUm, my patience and language profanity ability were truly tested!
The story begins, again, as our 36-hour… Continue

Remember that time when, 'the one' who ripped your heart out and sent you into a spiraling self-destructive time bomb fueled by excessive exercise, starvation, drinking and drugs, turned around just when you'd managed to smile and half-live, and wanted you back? Continue
Remember when, there weren't enough devastatingly painful 'love' songs that you…

On a particularly warm day in the October just passed, my beautiful Granny was laid to rest yet, somehow, a little lighthouse stood there, innocently painting smiles where otherwise were tears. Continue
That little lighthouse stands about 3 feet tall, with his messy blonde hair, grubby hands, and a…

I recently posted a video that, while I thought was hilarious, failed to attract the humor within my husband and some others, thus prompting me to question my 'mUm' ethics when it comes to laughing at Michael's accidental mishaps, such as running into walls, falling off his bike...you know that kind of thing.
And, I… Continue

UPDATE: Dash is coming to Spain!
Dear Potential Servants,
I'm Dash - quite possibly the most remarkable, handsome and unusual cat that you're ever likely to have the privilege of meeting.
But I digress.
I'm writing this because mUm and Dad just confirmed that unless that whiney black fuzz ball… Continue

Christmas is absolutely the most magical time of year, however in Australia, rather than sitting by a warm fire as the snow falls outside, waiting for Santa and his reindeer to arrive, we Aussies are at the beach, in our togs, eating pineapple and throwing another shrimp on the BBQ. Continue

My husband grew up on Lake Beulah in Wisconsin (ya naw), spending every moment he could, fishing. Whether, off the jetty in the beautiful warm Summer months, or huddled in a hut, over a small hole in the ice, so it was only a matter of time before Michael too would experience his first fishing adventure.
Now, I… Continue

I just read a post suggesting that $300 was a suitable amount per child to spend on Christmas gifts, and after closing my mouth in disgust, have to question how the true meaning of Christmas has been replaced by a superficial need to transform our children into spoilt rotten Veruca Salt's!
And, while it's absolutely… Continue

Yesterday my husband & I decided to try something new. He is the chef in the house- I am good at dreaming up what I would like (like a menu creator) but it's his job to make my craving come to life. We have been talking about making sliders for a while- but after using the mini rolls for the last BBQ chicken sliders we knew we wanted something a bit different. We decided to make Sourdough Sliders instead. We sliced the bread & grilled it on the griddle with lots of butter & a tad… Continue
