Vintage Robots and a Midnight Train to Anywhere

Vintage Robots and a Midnight Train to Anywhere!

 

Although I didn't grow up playing with trains, I've always found them incredibly fascinating, and, clung to the romance of stowing away on a midnight train, and, as it chugs slowly across the land, under the glow of a warm Summer night's moon, my legs dangle outside the open box car, exhausted from running to jump…

Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2011/02/aussie-aussie-aussie.html

 



Oi! Oi! Oi!



Just as Americans celebrate their independence on July 4, Australians on January 26, proudly celebrate Australia Day, by grabbing a coldie (beer), throwing a steak (or shrimp) on the barbie, blowing up the  pool, and enjoying a game of cricket, covered in the green and gold…

'Tween Wolf!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/08/tween-wolf.html

Am I the only mUm who wants to ring her 'tween' daughter's neck, because she is as annoying as an ingrown toenail?



What is it with this almost 11 year age phase that, one minute she displays the common sense of a pot plant, walking across the road without looking, and the next she's hanging out the washing unprompted? How did she go from cute…

Back To School: mUm, Where Did I Put My Book?

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/08/back-to-school-now-where-did-i-put-my.html

If, like me, you are counting the days 'til Summer holidays take a hike, then you are also getting ready for the back to school madness that, somehow clings to my, almost 11, step-daughter, and probably, most children this age!



This whole back to school madness, with missed lunches, dog ate…

Daddy's Little Girl!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/08/daddys-little-girl.html

I have never called myself Daddy's Little Girl, but somehow, I have always felt like I am!



And, even though I'm all grown up now, my Dad's 'Leo' strong, positive influence still plays a huge part in my life, just as it did when I WAS a little girl.



I can still hear Dad telling my sister and I that drugs and cigarettes will kill…

Jumping on the Julia Childs Bandwagon - YUM!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/08/julie-childs-bandwagon.html



Last night I made Boeuf Bourguignon, the dish made famous by the movie, Julie & Julia, the story of a young woman who cooks, and blogs her way through the Julia Childs book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking.



This is where I jump on the bandwagon, because, yes, Boeuf Bourguignon is without question, the most exquisite dish… Continue

Wiggle Time With The Wiggles - LIVE!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/08/wiggle-time.html



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

NAVY Life - NAVY Wife...In That Order!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/08/navy-life-navy-wife.html

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!



In fact, even though I had watched countless US ships come and go, filled with…

I'm Black, You're White...So What?

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/09/im-white-youre-black-so-what.html



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

Gaga for Lady Gaga - Live & Up-Close!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/09/gaga-for-gaga.html



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

Crikey mUm Goes Live!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/09/crikey-its-crikey-mums-first-vlog.html



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

Heaven Becomes You Granny.

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/10/heaven-becomes-you.html



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

Inconsiderate Fu*kers!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/11/inconsiderate-fuckers.html



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

Jar of Hearts - You Bastard!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/11/jar-of-hearts.html

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?



Remember when, there weren't enough devastatingly painful 'love' songs that you…

A Lighthouse! What To Say When Someone Dies.

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/11/on-particularly-warm-day-in-october.html

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.



That little lighthouse stands about 3 feet tall, with his messy blonde hair, grubby hands, and a…

And, The mUm Of The Year Award Goes To!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/12/and-mum-of-year-award-goes-to.html



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

A Letter From A Remarkable Cat

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/12/dear-potential-servants.html



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

DIY Christmas Tree Photo Ornaments

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/12/christmas-is-absolutely-most-magical.html

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.



Oh, and…

Give Him a Fish - Teach Him To Fish

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/12/give-him-fish-teach-him-to-fish.html



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
