Indiana Jones & The Shitty 80’s Memorabilia.

Whilst in Ballarat (henceforth B’rat) we did some touristy stuff, caught up with rellies, chilled out, and also GOT SHIT DONE. As mentioned in my last post, the garden was Priority #1. Priority #2 was to sort out the random accumulated crap in the guest room wardrobe and drawers. I was curious as to what I’d find, but determined…

All Melons Must Die.

**ANOTHER WARNING*** If you thought the bunny in my previous post was bad, you might not wanna stick around until the end of this post. You have been warned! The morning after All Hallow’s Eve I pulled down the cobwebs from the front door, rolled up the crime scene tape and packed away the treat buckets…

Hilarious Or Horrifying? You Decide.

Warning: This post is funny as Hell… to me. You might find it funny (that’s why I’m sharing it), find it distinctly UNfunny (more likely) or even downright terrifying. I’ve been wanting to write a Halloween post but I don’t have any awesome spooky tales to tell, so this is just something that happened while I…

Fuzzy Duck, Fuzzy Duck, Fuzzy Duck, Ducky Fuzz.

Ah, spring! *BANG* on time this year. Winter on the Gold Coast is frickin awesome – some might laugh derisively that we refer to our days of blue skies and daily averages of 20-25C “winter”, but it says so on the calendar and besides I did tell you the nights can be bloody freezing rather cold a bit…

Birdie Buffet Food Fiiiiiight!

Growing up J had dogs on the family farm, we had cats and a budgie, and naturally we want the boys to also experience DOG BREATH, PUKED UP FURBALLS, BIRD SHIT IN YOUR HAIR the unconditional love of a pet. Both Finn and Rory love animals and pat other people’s whenever they’re allowed. Then without fail ask when we’re…

Cheap Wine & A Three Day Blow.

Every Friday morning we love listening to Like A Version on Triple J during the school run. In case you are reading this from somewhere other than Straya, it’s an awesome radio segment where guest artists play an original song followed by a cover of another band’s song. I just love it when bands give…

A Very Expensive Weekend. Yet Actually Not.

Have just taken stock for this past weekend… Item A: $120.00 for removal of fully grown deadly Eastern brown snake from near our front door on Saturday afternoon. This was a scant few hours before we were due to have some friends over, with a large kidlet contingent. Serpent wasn’t even found, but presumably took…

Where The Bloody Hell Was I?

Hi! Yes it’s been quite a while (*coughTHREEMONTHScough*) but here I am back again. And no, I didn’t have a baby, or traverse the Antarctic, or fall into a large crack in the ground… I just got a little distracted. Yes, for three months. I know. I seem to have developed  a quite severe attention…

NaBloPoMoOHNO.

It’s a good thing I’d decided against NaBloPoMo this year (which is “National Blog Posting Month” for those not in the know, where the challenge is to blog every day for the month of November, possibly while also growing a moustache) because our PC has shat itself. i had however decided to post more often,…

Incy Wincy & I Come To An Agreement.

You know how I might’ve intimated I’m a bit of an arachnophobe? Well a rather biggish huntsman appeared in the office a week or so ago, and has somehow still not ended up upside down on the floor with a broom through his head. I think I’m becoming more tolerant, you know, growing as a…

Okay. I’m here. Now what do I do?

Aaargh how do I change the stupid header photo? Where do I put my favourite blogs list? How do I upload a photo…ah there you go. Hey it’s not very big, I hope it turns out bigger than that. I hope this blog looks more expensive than what it actually costs, which is nothing. Lets…
