Hi, and welcome to the crazy! A place for a crazy single mum to type what is on her mind.. Please keep your arms & legs inside the carriage at all times, and hang the f*ck on!

The crazy continues...

SO. I've been trying to get a job in Real Estate for sometime now. A little hard when you have no experience or qualifications though! So I had it all planned! I was going to do my Property Management Registration, and THEN apply for a heap more jobs! Full-time work, here I come!
And thennnnnnnn.... One day, I was trawling Seek, as part of my daily ritual, when I come across a job. A local job. A job I KNEW I could get. Before I knew what the hell I was doing, I had applied for it!!! WHATTTTT!? I do NOTTTTTTTTT want to go back to Hospitality!! The last thing I want to do is bust my ass all day at work, and then come home to take care of my little froggy, as well as maintain a respectable house! So when I was offered the job, after much deliberation and brain storming, I had decided I would turn the job down! After all, I only applied for the job as a bit of an ego boost. Just to remind myself I still had it. Which, of course, I do LOL. So I called them up the next day, with every intention of turning the job down! But no, I had to accept it!? WHAT THE FUCK!? Surely I've lost my mind for committing such a crazy act!
So now, long story short (or not...), I am going to be a single mum with a full-time job, living in a state with NO family to help me out when I'm fried. Oh lordy... What have I done!?

Must say though, I am slightly excited at the prospect of returning to work! I'm not the slightest bit nervous (still time for that to kick in though!), but I am scared to leave my little froggy in daycare 5 days a week!! However will I cope!? Part of me is looking forward to a break from him, after having him attached to me for the past 21 months... But the bigger part of me knows that 5 days without him is too much! Ahhhh, I feel the water works brewing just THINKING about dropping him off at 6:30 on Monday morning! *sob*

Oohhhhh, the best part about all this working business!? (aside from the renewed sense of independence) I'll be cooking! And cleaning. ALLLLLLLL day!!!!!!! Oh yes, I have most definitely lost my mind!!! I give it approximately 2 weeks before were living off takeaway and living in a pigsty! LOL.

Ahh, that'll do dear followers... LOL, followers.... So stalkerish! ...IIIIII LIKE IT! Hehe.

Peace out kidlets! x
Soon to be my house... LOL.

Yep, it's official; I'm a real mum now! (because merely pushing out a baby does not make you a mum! LOL!) I menu plan! It's good fun, and I'm hoping it will help me save some coin by not wasting so much food every week! Wasted food is so depressing... Not to mention the latest health kick starts on Monday! Eeeeeeep!

It's been awhile...

Soooooo... I haven't blogged in awhile! Things have been crazy! Little froggy isn't quite so little anymore, and he takes great pleasure in constantly mix things up for me!
I've turned hippy ladies and gentlemen! Not anti-shaving, tie-dye wearing, dready owning style hippy... But hippy nonetheless. It's been, in a word, fun.
I'm finally getting settled into Perth! Only taken me nearly 6 months!! YES, in 2 weeks I celebrate my 6 month anniversary with this backwards state! Ahhh, what fun, and interesting times I've had! I'm hoping to study next month, in order to get a job in Real Estate. I'm finding it a little hard to get a job with no qualifications, so hopefully this makes it easier! Have also FINALLY sorted out daycare!! Intense. REAL intense! But done. YAY!
Am also about to kickstart a lifestyle change! No more junk food. No feeling sorry for myself because things are tough. No binging on chocolate because I feel lonely late at night... Just straight up happiness and healthy eating! I believe the two go hand in hand though... No more fat flap = happyyyyyyyy Leelee. Happy Leelee = healthy Leelee!!! WINNERRRRRRRRR.

OK, must be off. Little frog child has awoken from the depths of hell after his afternoon nap, and is going to obtain attention from neighbours with his SCREAMING if I don't let him out ASAP.

Peace out kidlets! x

well well well...

Why howdy there! It's been awhile hasn't it!? I've been busy lately, what with battling personal demons, homesickness, and Satan child! Finally getting on top of it all though. BOOYA!
Homesickness hit a new high the other day.... My little monster had been screaming constantly for like, 3 days... Actually, since flights to Melb were booked, he's been sooky... It's like he knows, and is just as anxious as I am! Actually had to leave the house! Was good to get a little fresh air though. Gave me the power to be able to tolerate constant screaming for the rest of the day...LOL.
It seems that homesickness and depression don't go well together! After much thought, I've decided to go to my Doctor whilst I'm in Melbourne and talk about going back on AD's.... But only short-term. Just until my life is sorted! ...I hope. >.<
Also, my diet is in full swing! Huge thanks to my VB buddy for helping me out, and motivating me to stick with it! Among other things...Already feel heaps better! ;)

How's Easter!? OMG. Chocolate free house here, but my besty sent us an egg each, so we got into it a little! Turns out chocolate sends my little man into a state of ....idunnowhatthefucktocallit, butitreallyhurtmyheadandi'mneverlettingithappenagain! LOLLL. FULL ON. Clearly he's not immune to sugar, or caffeine!

Did I mention I'm homesick!? SOOO homesick! Had the house to myself this weekend though, and it's been fucking awesome!  You don't realise how awesome Melbourne is until you leave... And you don't realise that some 'pretty' places are best left as holiday destinations! Perth would clearly be awesome to someone that doesn't know any better... But I do know better, and it blows over here!! ...Unless the weather is awesome, it rocks on great days! :) Stubbornness will keep me here though.. I'll stay, just to prove a point! Willpower is an amazing thing!

Hmmmm... Satan has gone quiet... dun-dun-dunnnnnnnnn... Something is not right. NOT RIGHT.

Peace out kiddies! xx

Cloth nappies... Myths busted!

Stole this from another blog... Found it interesting and figure it will come in handy to have easy access to the information when converting mummy friends (which everyone knows I'm good at doing!)


Modern cloth diapers are so different from your grandmother’s diapers you would hardly believe it. They come in bright colors and prints, fasten with snaps instead of pins, and can be washed in your washing machine with very little trouble. Here are some common myths surrounding cloth diapers, and the straight poop on how they really work.

Cloth Diapers Are Unsanitary: FALSE
When washed with a good additive-free detergent such as Allen’s Naturally or Rockin’ Green, cloth diapers are easy to keep clean. Breastfeed poo can go straight in the washer, but solids go in the toilet before the diaper goes in the pail, so you don’t have to worry about putting your washer under too much strain. Wash your diapers at least every three days to keep stinkies at bay, and try drying them in the sun occasionally, which both disinfects and removes stains.

Cloth Diapers = Pins & Plastic Pants: FALSE
Cloth diapers are now made of high-tech fabrics and fasten with snaps or Velcro. In fact, cloth diapers today are nearly as convenient as disposables. The most convenient brands (Applecheeks, Thirsties, Bamboo Baby) allow you to just throw them in the pail in one piece when they’re wet. Any loose diaper inserts will shimmy out in the wash.

Cloth Diapers Can Help Kids Potty Train Sooner: TRUE
SAP, or sodium polyacrylate, is the super-absorbent polymer crystals in the core of disposable diapers. This substance wicks and traps moisture away from baby’s skin to help him feel dry, but it has also been linked to health problems such as endocrine disruption, which can cause a host of illnesses later in life. Cloth diapers also wick moisture away from baby’s skin, but they let baby feel wet enough that he knows when he has peed, and that makes him more likely to want to use the potty instead.

Cloth Diapers Don’t Save That Much Money: FALSE
Cloth diapers cost $10-20 apiece up front, which can be intimidating. But cloth diapers can be used with multiple kids. If you diapered 3 children for 2.5 years each using cloth diapers, your total cost would probably come to about $1,000. Disposables for the same kids would run you an intimidating $7,500. Win some free cloth diapers in a blog giveaway such as those hosted on 29Diapers.com, and you can cut the cost of cloth even further.

Cloth Diapers Save 1 Ton of Trash Per Year: TRUE
Cloth diapers keep 1 ton of trash per year per kid out of the landfill. This fact alone is enough to keep many moms coming back to cloth diapers, so they have a healthy earth to pass down to their kids. Disposable diapers take about 500 years to decompose, which means your great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandchildren will still be living with the first disposable diapers ever created 40 years ago. That is the definition of unsustainable.

Cloth Diapers Are Hard To Wash: FALSE
Modern cloth diapers can be washed in your home washer and dryer. They are stored until wash day in a flip-top plastic pail and can be kept in a pail liner made of the same PUL (polyurethane-laminated polyester fabric) that diapers are now made of. This means no mess: just pull the pail liner bag out of the pail on wash day and dump the whole thing in the washer. The bag gets washed along with your diapers, and you didn’t have to touch a thing.

Cloth Diapers Are Healthier for Babies: TRUE
Disposable diapers are made of bleached wood pulp (which contains the carcinogen dioxin), SAP or sodium polyacrylate (which has been linked to chemical burns in Pampers DryMax diapers, toxic shock syndrome in feminine products, and endocrine disruption to give children diseases induced by hormonal imbalances), and plastic (which requires crude oil to create—neither healthy for your baby nor good for the economy). Cloth diapers are made of polyester or cotton or wool or fleece on top, and microfiber or hemp or bamboo or cotton on the inside.

KIDS. One word. THEEE word. Strikes fear into the hearts of grown men, turns any woman into a blubbery mess, scares the crap out of teenagers, melts the heart of old people, brings people together, tears families apart and sets a mother apart from the rest of the world.
WOW man. Just WOW. Kids are full on! They're so amazing. And it's amazing how much they change your life! Even if the only thing that changes in your life is your before/after work routine, they still change who you are. Help you define what a true friend is.... Perfect example of true love. Love at first sight. Unconditional, "I don't care WTF you do, I'll always love you" kinda love.
Yet, something so perfect and blissful can turn someone's life into hell!? How does that work!? And turn someone from having some of the best friends in the world, to having no friends... A once confident, ambitious, carefree young woman turns into a self-conscious, clueless ....blonde!? I find it amazing how much everything changes. And how personally mothers take kind words of advice.. EVERYONE is different. No two mothers raise their children the same. If every mother raised every child the same, the world would be ...boring. Heck, a family can have two children and have full intention of raising both of them in the same way, but it will never happen! So why do mothers take something that was meant as a bit of friendly advice so insultingly!? Or, if you say something like, "Oh, disposable nappies!? I could never put THOOOOSSEEEE on MYYYY sons bum! They're disgusting!" That's MY opinion!!! Doesn't mean you have to get all sad panda on me! (just using that as an example BTW! Keep your panties on!)

Shit like this happens everyday! None of this is based on anything said to me today/yesterday/last week.... I was just reading an article on ninemsn and realised mothers are all such hypocritical morons! Yes, even I have my moments - I'm not afraid to admit it. And any mother that feels they can get all 'holier than thou' towards another mother due to being in a different situation can go eat a dick! :)

Ahhhhh, today's blog - over and OUT! x

Back to the 80s!?

So like, I've been thinking about the past a lot lately.... Not in ways you're probably thinking! I wonder what it would be like to raise a kid in the 80s.... I know what it was like to be born in the 80s (winner decade btw!) but to be a parent in those times; what was it like!? No internet. Computers weren't mandatory in every household. No mobile phones. Only the simplest of toys.... I reckon I was meant to be a mum in the 80s! I WANT TO GO BACK TO THE 80s!!!!
So random. I love the ....WTF is this decade called!? ...I love the 21st century. I just don't like what video games and gory movies are doing to the population! +1 for WORLD PEACE.
No, I'm not a hippy. I'm just starting to come to the realisation that I'm raising a child that is most likely going to grow up in the grimmest of times. Apart from the recession, obviously... Although, could be worse!? Makes me sad that he wont have the luxuries that you and I do. Sure, there will be things that are WAYYY better than what we have now. But there will be a lot that will be worse. He wont realise it, but I will.
Have no idea why I'm thinking this way.... I had a really freaky dream last night, and ever since I woke up, I've been in this state of mind.....
Meh, life goes on!
Peace outtttt! x

AHHH! The world's going to end... Or not.

Hurricanes. Floods. Fires. Cyclones. Earthquakes. Tsunami's. These are all natural disasters that have been occurring for countless years.... Yet, all of a sudden, some hotshot makes a movie about the world ending with believable scenarios, and all of a sudden this shit constantly happening means the world is going to end!? SERIOUSLY!? Fail.
Today's earthquake/tsunami in Japan prompted half of my facebook friends to go into a sort of 'panic' state sooking about how the world WILL end in 2012... How the scientists are all right. ...The scientists that don't actually have any credible degrees anyway. Because the real scientists; the ones with 10+ years of scientific study, have NO idea what they're talking about hey!? ...Some people... LOL.
Clearly I don't believe constant natural disasters means the world is going to end. Hopefully, it just means that the human population will take our planet a little more serious and start looking after it! Otherwise, it will end. But not in 2012!

Had to get that off my chest! LOL. Could say a lot more, but hey, I need to feed my son before he chews my leg off... Because yes, he is turning into a flesh eating werewolf, just like in the movies!

Songs that played during this blog session ::
The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony.
Aerosmith - Don't Want To Miss A Thing.
Goo Goo Dolls - Better Days.

So I've decided sunburn works in mysterious ways... It only burns what it wants to! LOL.
Went to the beach yesterday... Slathered on some sunscreen, then had some fun for a few hours.... OMG. Ended up with heatstroke or something because I was so burnt! EVEN MY LEGS BURNT! My calves have NEVER been burnt before! EVER. It hurts so bad!!

Anyway, purpose of the blog.... So, I have patchy burn on my chest, back, arms and legs... Really weird. And I'd like to know why Mr Sunshine is discriminating against my knees!? Why does he feel my knees don't need to tan!? I'd really like to know!!! Frustrating. Patchy tan = mega fail. I'm such a Melbournian! LOL.

REMEMBER kidlets :: Slip, Slop, Slap!!! x

Burn in question... How funny does it look!?

Peace out! x

That's the sound of an f-16 taking off at full noise! <3
That's the sound I wont be hearing this year. For the first time in a REALLY long time, I wont be going to Avalon Airshow this week! So gut wrenching; if I was in Melbourne, I'd be HELLLL pumped, as Thursday & Fridays are my go days! (trade pass ftw!)

The fact that the f-22's are there makes it even depressing. I seriously want to cry!!! Imagine.... Well, imagine having to go without the one thing you love more than life itself.... Like air for example. Yep, me missing out on the airshow is like the world running out of air! I COULD DIEEEEEEE.
Extreme, I know. Some may be thinking, "oh my, what a drama queen! It's just a bunch of planes sitting on the tarmac!" ..No, it's really not hey! It's a way of life - MY way of life. The way your stomach does that stupid thing when the jets take off... Watching the aerobatics.. Thinking to yourself, "if I wasn't such a dickhead, that could've be me up there!"
It's the greatest show on Earth! It's amazing. It's how I want to spend every day of the rest of my life! It's how I would be spending every day of the rest of my life if I wasn't silly enough to get pregnant!
I really do love my bubba with 95% of my heart... But that other 5%... Well, that 5% is addicted to adrenalin. He can't get my heart racing like a big fat shot of adrenalin can! :/

So yeah, the amount of sadness running through me because I cant go to the airshow is enough to blog about! ..One day precious wings, one day....

mmmm, sexy f-22.... *drools* 

Oh, and if you're fortunate enough to be going to the airshow this weekend.... Spare a thought for me and take LOTS of awesome photos!!! That would be awesome!

Peace out! x

A little bit trashy...

Quite certain this blog will make me sound like a ....well, a slut really. But I don't particularly care, as I desperately need to get this off my chest! :)

Bad sex should NOT be allowed!!
SERIOUSLY. How bad is it!? Like, not just at the time, but the aftermath as well.. It's like, "oh yeah, thanks mate! I'll never want sex again!" *sad face* ....then, later, you realise that it's actually made you want it even more! ...Not bad sex, I never want that again... But I'd love an AWESOME shag. A mindblowing shag. The kind of shag that makes me go weak at the knees, and waddle like a duck the next day! OK, maybe not the waddling! That's usually a sign of sex that's way too rough. I'm far too fragile to be pounded like a cheap steak! >.<

I learnt my lesson though. Younger guys; they're really not that awesome! ...Well, not until I'm in my 30s! Younger guys might rock my world then! ...If I still roll like that anyway.

Peace out kidlets!

18 February, 2011

Late at night...

I wish I could go back in time and take back every little brag I ever made about my little monster sleeping all night! Karma is most definitely paying me a visit of late, with my son waking up SCREAMING at the stupidest of hours... Taking forever to settle... Then starting all over again when I leave the room! It's all so very trying... Don't get me wrong, love him to bits... Just wish his cry didn't send me into a fit of rage in my grumpy half asleep state.

Some say it's the PND... That I was stupid for going cold turkey off the anti-depressants... Meh, I dislike feeling like drugs are ruling my life! People got by without them many years ago, why should now be any different!? Just because they're around, doesn't mean they should be abused and taken at the first sign of life getting tough. But at the same time.... Deep down I know that I need them... I think that's the worst part. DENIAL. Such a bitch of a thing. Ughhhh.
Others say it's the fact I feel so useless. I admire mothers that can stay home for YEARS raising their children, keeping house, playing wife... Really, I do. I would love to feel like I can do that! But I'm just not that person. I'm independent. I need to feel needed. Like I'm making a difference in this world... Gah, now I feel like a bad mum! I love raising my froggeh! I really do hope he turns out to be a seriously awesome little man! I just hope I can manage to turn myself into a seriously awesome woman as well!

Gah, now I feel like a bad mum! I'm not a bad person. I put my son before EVERYONE. Everything I've done in the last 2 years has been for him. Except for the move to Perth. That was for both of us. He'll enjoy the laidback lifestyle, I'll enjoy the fresh start! (hopefully!)
At least I get to do a lot of thinking at 2am.... Ponder what my life will be like in 5 years time... 10 years... 15... What froggeh will be like as an adolescent... adult... old man... LOL. Then I can never get to sleep. Such a vicious cycle!
Then I go back to trying to get a job.. And cleaning.. FML, I'm so over cleaning!!!! Especially when 10 minutes later, the little turd is pulling it all out of the bin anyway!! >.<

Ooooh, this ones a little deep hey!? I'm not a bad person! I'm just frustrated, confused, and experiencing a quarter life crisis! I'll sort myself out one day. Preferably before it's too late.
Peace out kidlets! x

14 February, 2011

Valentines Day...

Roses are gay
Violets are dead
I'll spend the whole day
Laying in bed!

...LOL. I dislike Valentines Day when I have nobody to stimulate me. Not in a dirty sex kinda way; in an adult conversation kinda way. One that doesn't involve poo's, toys, and tanties!
Don't get me wrong, sex would be awesome! But it's not really top of my list!

I also hate bills. And want more nappies. And want a million other things as well! ...Sucks to WANT everything!!! I WANT never gets!!!!
I do NEED a job though. Would most definitely help me satisfy my 'wants' LOL.
Ugh, bored ramblings yet again.

Peace out kidlets! x

Nothing like a good variety of screws to spice up the evening!

12 February, 2011


Gah, they're so frustrating!! When I first got here, the first thing I noticed was that the bit of grass between the hwy was getting watered!! Don't think I've ever seen that in my life! Naturally, this made me think Perth was the coolest place ever, LOL.
But now... Now I know the truth about the evil sprinklers. They never do what they're told! Go off when they want (at least on the right day!) and squirt for AGES! So much for 20 minutes max - sorry almost empty Perth dam, our sprinklers are greedy and stay on for an hour or so... >.<

Other than that, life here is pretty awesome! Finally get my bed tomorrow - only took 3 weeks! Also get my pallets of crap!!! This is exciting. Almost as exciting as when Sparkles (my car) arrived! Not really looking forward to putting my bed together though. Can totally see this ending badly!

Oh.. Yes.. I've been here 3 weeks!? CRAZY. Where is the time going!? Also getting homesick I think.... Starting to get bored as I get more settled in... Need to find a job, but it's no easy task when you have a kid to look after as well - discriminating bastards! Plus, the fact I only really have Hospitality experience doesn't really help me, considering I'm trying to get an office job. *sigh* One day...

Anyway, felt a little overdue on the blog front.. Now it's out of my system, I feel much better! Will probably get back into it a little more when I have REAL internet on my PC ahaha. Stupid USB internet stuff is GAY. Drops out wayyy too much! :(

Peace out kidlets! x

24 January, 2011

HELLO Perth!

So I'm here!! Got here Thursday night and it still hasn't really sunk in that I've actually moved here! Figure it will hit me like a tonne of bricks one day when I least expect it! >.<

We adjusted well to the time difference etc. The Melbourne like weather is making that a little easier though! Wouldn't complain if this rain went away though... STOP FOLLOWING ME!! ...damn rain clouds! My little man is doing heaps better than expected, but is being hell clingy and clumsy, so I'm thinking his ears popped during the flight - poor kid!

Speaking of flight.... You know how when you fly somewhere, there's always that ONE child that sooks the WHOOOOOOLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEE flight!? Well.... I have that child! Must be karma for all the evil glares I used to give kids pre-mummy LOL. Sucked sooo bad!! Late flights and toddlers clearly don't mix. EVER.

Adelaide was crap. The CBD strongly resembles an outer Melbourne suburb LOL. Everyone drives slow and crazy-like. Rundle mall is NOT what it's cracked up to be!! Tad disappointing. The drive into Adelaide was fun though!!

By the way.... To anyone thinking about coming to Perth - COMMUTE! Perth drivers are SOOOO bad LOL. Like, CRAZY bad. Horrible even.
The weather is amazing though. Completely different to Melbourne! It can be hot, yet there's still a refreshing breeze in the air! ...But then again, I do believe I haven't copped a scorcher yet!

Anyway, just thought I'd give you all an update on everything! I do like it here so far! Going to get out and explore a little more tomorrow hopefully...

Anywayyy... Time for this granny to sleep! Moving is so exhausting!!
Peace out kidlets! x

15 January, 2011

Last night...

So tonight is my last night in 'our' first home. Hasn't really gotten to me, knowing I was leaving this place.. Until just then. I realised all the milestones froggy has reached in this house! First word, first tooth, crawling, first steps.... The laughter, the tears, the frustration, sleepless nights, happy moments, tickles, cuddles..... And now I'm getting sad. Don't get me wrong, I'll be glad to see the back of this place! It has no aircon, thus making it sauna spec on hot days. But it was our first home. Not house, home. There's a huge difference, as some of you will know. Ahh well, I'll just keep reminding myself of the reasons why I'm leaving - the new memories, laughter, milestones and tears... A new life.

Speaking of new life - how awesome am I!? First house = brand spanking new! Had to wait for the electrical stuff to be done before I could even move in..... New house in Perth = brand spanking new as well!!! God help me the day I have to move into an older house LOL.

Should probably go clean some more... Still have sooo much to do! Took a breather to nab a WW custom, and that was an hour ago.... WHOOPSIES.

Seriously cant believe it's my last night here.... I need booze!! This time in 3 days I'll be going to bed for the last time as a Melbournian!!! EEEEEEEEEEP.

Peeeeeeeeeace out kidlets! x

This time in SEVEN days, I'll be snoozing in my fabulous hotel room in Adelaide!!!!!!! WEEEEEE! Curious to see what Adelaide is like - never been there before!!
ANNNND.... This time in 8 days, i'll be on the plane on my way to Perth!!!! (with less than an hour to go!) THAT is exciting!!!! Also nerve racking. Hopefully my little froggy takes after his mama and loves flying!

Packing is shit. Seriously! SOOOOOO SHIT. I think the fact that you pack, only to unpack a couple of days later makes it so much more suckier, if that makes sense!? Hmmmm.. Almost done. Not sure if everything I plan on putting in my car will actually fit in my car though. I have more crap than I thought!

This is all MY crap... EEEEP!

...How's the floods in Brisbane!? SOOOO depressing! I watch the news, read the stuff on facebook, browse some blogs.... And my heart breaks. Seeing pics of places like Southbank... Thinking... Places I used to sit and watch the world go by are now underwater! CRAZY. Friends houses - underwater. I feel like my heart is being ripped away with the current, it's that brutal. The stories of heroism and random acts of kindness make my heart smile though! And the flood relief... OH. EM. GEEE! Can't believe how generous our amazing little country (well, continent if you want to get technical) is! No wonder I love Australia so much! <3

My little man has started 'hiding' on me hey. It's the cutest thing ever, as he hasn't quite grasped the concept of 'hiding' yet! He merely squats in the corner!! He looks so cute though! Tucks his little head down and tries sooo hard not to move/make a sound! Then he sees my feet, jumps up, goes "didididididdididididdididi" (no idea what that is meant to mean LOL) and runs away! DAMMIT. How can one child be so damn lovable!? I just want to squish him!! >.<
He does wees on the toilet too!! I put a pic up for you all to enjoy. Makes me do a little squeal on the inside seeing him on the toilet! ...Yes, I think it's THAT cute!

How cute is my little man!? LOVE HIM.

God, I always swore I'd never be one of those mums that talks about their kids ALLLLLLLLLLLL the time.. Used to drive me batty! Yet here I am, basking in my sons glory and amazement. Funny how the world works hey!? 

Don't you hate it when you can't sleep!? Another night of cleaning done... Melbourne's humidity is draining the life out of me! I can't clean during the day as I feel too sticky to do anything, so I do it all at night when the house has cooled down... Naturally, that results in my body gaining another hit of energy, thus leaving me wide eyed and bushy tailed at ...12:25am. Sweet, this is awesome!! *note sarcasm*

Ughh, might go amuse myself elsewhere now...
Much love kidlets! x

Face vs Tiles...

And the tiles won!! I know I look like crap - I'd been dancing in the rain, and consumed a LOT of ouzo! LOL.

Crazy drunk...

I blog drunk!!!!!! ...Actually, never done it before. Had the crazy urge to write a blog though. Like, right now. Mark is looking over my shoulder reading as I type, laughing when I typo. PRICK!
I like ouzo. It makes stuff fuzzy. Warm and fuzzy. I also love spell check, and hope it knows its shit so that this makes sense!
Might get the neighbour to proofread. LOL.
Hate packing so took another night off.
This time in 12 days i'll be on the plane Perth bound!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is all.

Ohhhhh, don't face plant into tiles. Makes your cheekbone ache like a bitch!

The cloth crazy...

I love cloth nappies! Cute ones, bright ones, fluffy and embroidered ones! They make me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside!!!
Nah, but seriously. I get that a LOT of people use disgustables, I just don't understand why you would when there's such awesome nappies out there that not only look 100 times cuter, but are also a fraction of the price!? Not to mention all the bad stuff they do to the environment! CRAZY PEOPLE!!

So I was ADDICTED to buying MCN's at one stage hey. Like, I'd get really grumpy and stuff if I wasn't expecting fluffy mail! How intense is that!? People don't understand it, but no word of a lie, it's an addiction!! Bit like shopaholics, only fluffaholics hehe.
ANYWAYYYYY, it's been almost a month since I got fluffy mail!!!! I only realised today that it's been so long....... And I think I'm okay with that!? I still want more naps, and have some coming eventually..... But I'm not a fluffaholic anymore!!!!!!!!

I guess this post is a bit like an alcoholic coming out and being all, "I've been sober for 6 months!!!!" ...It's a mega achievement! I'm proud of myself! Now to find some fluff for me to buy.... No wait, I can't!!! ... This time in 2 weeks I'll be on the plane Perth bound!!! So scary that it's so close.... EEEEEEEEEP!

Peace out kidlets. x

My Country...

The love of field and coppice,
Of green and shaded lanes.
Of ordered woods and gardens
Is running in your veins,
Strong love of grey-blue distance
Brown streams and soft dim skies
I know but cannot share it,
My love is otherwise.

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me!

A stark white ring-barked forest
All tragic to the moon,
The sapphire-misted mountains,
The hot gold hush of noon.
Green tangle of the brushes,
Where lithe lianas coil,
And orchids deck the tree-tops
And ferns the warm dark soil.

Core of my heart, my country!
Her pitiless blue sky,
When sick at heart, around us,
We see the cattle die -
But then the grey clouds gather,
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army,
The steady, soaking rain.

Core of my heart, my country!
Land of the Rainbow Gold,
For flood and fire and famine,
She pays us back threefold -
Over the thirsty paddocks,
Watch, after many days,
The filmy veil of greenness
That thickens as we gaze.

An opal-hearted country,
A wilful, lavish land -
All you who have not loved her,
You will not understand -
Though earth holds many splendours,
Wherever I may die,
I know to what brown country
My homing thoughts will fly.

I DESPISE packing!

I'm not even joking. It takes me sooo long to pack stuff!! And even longer to unpack!! I only finished unpacking all my stuff here in like, July maybe!? Already I have to pack it all up again!! ...Minus 3/4 of my stuff, obviously. BLAHHHH. It's worse too, because yeah, I'm selling most of my stuff, but I still have sooo much more stuff than I did when I moved in! Stupid stuff!!

ANNNNNNNNNNND...... There was a spudda on my ceiling last night!! Panic attack much!? Hate the grotty little fuckers, I really do! So I ran off and grabbed my thongs (yes plural, I needed 2 for my plan to work!) and decided I was going to throw one near it so it would drop to the floor, then squish it with the other thong, then spray it with bug spray. Great plan, true!? NOPE! Just call me a ninja! *throws thong up* ...........IT LANDED PERFECTLY ON THE CEILING!!!!! Therefore, the spudda GUTS came down with the thong, hence me not having a panic attack because there's a spudda running around on the floor!! WINNNN!!!! I  felt so awesome achieving that! 12 months ago I wouldn't have even been able to go near the contaminated room without copping heart failure! >.<

....We wont talk about all the bullshit going on today. Lets just say I'm hanging for lunchtime so I can call the real estate and GSR, to get some much needed good news!! (hopefully!!!!)

YES, i'm a single mum...

I don't understand why some people are so moronic when it comes to single mums? *gets distracted by 'Black Eyed Peas - The Time' and starts dancing*
....OK, where was I!? Oh, that's right. The single mum questions. Why do people ask the stupidest questions about life as a single mum!? Especially when they know I've been one right from the start... "Oh, what's it like being a single mum!?" ...I dunno, what's it like having a father in your child's life!? It's like being a mum. Does it really matter if there is one or two parents!? Well, obviously it does... So many of my coupled mum friends are envious of me because I can raise my son how I see fit, without having an annoying male in my ear telling me I should be doing things differently! I can dress him how I like, put him in cute cloth nappies, buy him toys I like, raise him to be the gentleman I WANT him to be! Not like you coupled mums.... Stuck with the annoying male (often referred to as the eldest child) giving his bullshit opinions that make you rage. Don't feel sorry for me....... I feel sorry for YOU!
Yeah, it's hard. But motherhood in general is hard! Anyone that tells you being a mum is easy obviously doesn't spend time being a mother. The only difference between you and me is, you don't have to stress about the day your child wants to find their biological father........ I do. If you're dying of the flu, you know there's a could chance daddy could come to the rescue... I have to toughen up and deal with it. You get used to it - I don't know any other way!!

....Just thought I'd clear that up for the peeps out there that often question life as a single mum.... :D
I'm now going to the toilet for the umpteenth time today...... peace out! x
