Reject in the Reject Shop November 22, 2008

So the other day I’m wandering around in The Reject Shop with the PSLS. We are looking at the Christmas pretties, I’m contemplating which tins to buy to put home made goodies in for adult munchy type gifts, he’s checking out lollies and shit cos he’s a sweet toothed fella when this comes over the in store radio

and PSLS starts singing along AND dancing in the freakin aisle!

I tried threatening to embarrass him on my blog.

He tries to get me to dance along with him.

I ran away.

I rejected him in The Reject Shop.

You’d think they could have kept him. Surely someone would have coughed up $20 for a slightly used husband with shit taste in music but a tight squeezable ass!


So what made you smile this week?

The Truckie November 21, 2008

So yesterday afternoon I’m driving to school to pick the kids up and happen to spot one of the other trucks from hubby’s working leaving the factory. (The factory is 2 blocks down and around the corner from our house).

The truck was in front of me and heading through town to go out the Sydney road. As he was turning onto the Sydney road he’s spotted me behind him and waved. A minute later he’s pulled up in front of the showground and is waving some more. I thought he was adjusting his mirrors or something so waved back and kept going. He pulled back out onto the road a moment later.

Now this particular workmate of my hubby’s is a real blokey bloke who has a bit of a biker thing going on.  He’s not particularly tall, but he’s got a mullet longish dark hair, a moustache, multiple earrings, big chunky silver rings on most fingers, big chunky silver chain around his neck, tatts down his arms…… he looks rough and he has that really typical big, round truckies stomach thing going on that is often barely covered by his unbuttoned high visability work shirt much to the factory manager’s chagrin.

So you can imagine my amusement a minute later as I’m sitting on the middle of the bridge waiting for the traffic  lights to change and glance up just in time to see this fella hop out of his truck, and start running up the centreline of the road towards me. As I wind down my window he throws a piece of paper into the car, says “check this” and runs back to his truck. I’m just about pissing myself laughing as it was so unexpected both to have someone do that AND to watch this guy running anywhere!

The piece of paper? His Chrisco order for next year. Lots of seafood and beer! 😉

Frustrating November 19, 2008

I’m very used to being able to ring my hubby at the end of the day and compare notes, share tales, discuss plans, decompress, mouth off, have a laugh and generally connect.

So after a frustrating evening of playing nice and shutting my mouth while being dictated to by others paranoia, I come home, ring hubby to have myself a good ol’ bitch and whine and…… what the hell! His phone is rapidly going flat.

“I’ll call you back” he says.

And so he does…………

to tell me that he can’t find his damn phone charger so can’t talk.


I hate that.





Talking to myself isn’t half as much fun!

damn! November 15, 2008

You know what else I hate about warmer weather besides the bugs?


Yup you heard me.

And if you think that it’s unpatriotic of me then you can sod off.

Time to start hiding the remotes from PSLS …………………..

Meantime Guera tagged me for this meme ‘Sixth and Sixth’ where you post the 6th photo in the 6th folder on your computer (or Flickr account or picassa account or phone or wherever you keep your photos).

Easy peasy huh? So the sixth folder is September 08 and the sixth pic is this –


Ah yes, a pic of the storm that I was driving into coming home from Dubbo one afternoon. Oh that’s boring, I’ve already posted about that. Hmmmm oh hold on. Trisha has a very similar meme going too – same principle, but the Fourth and Fourth. Let’s have a little looksee………

Ahhhh the train being loaded……..


Trains aren’t a common sight around these parts now with all the line closures.


When we spotted this train being loaded on our travels a few weeks back we grabbed the camera to take pics for TJ who we knew would be very interested in the machinery they use to shift those containers.


We must have sat for a good half an hour watching. I was just disapointed that they didn’t load a container onto the section of train just in front of us. Where they were loading was blocked off.


But still, pics of them moving the containers in front of us were found to be just as fascinating by the small man.


Now do I tag six people or four? hmmm

How about you tag yourself if you’d like to do either one?

Bugged! November 14, 2008

I don’t mind the warmer weather, truly I don’t. At least not while it’s only hovering in the low 30’s (high 80’s F for you crazy non metric Americans), when it gets up into the 40’s (104 F+) I’ll be bitching up a storm though cos when the temp is that high, even the pool doesn’t cool you off and all a person can do is sprawl on the lounge in front of the aircon in a very unladylike manner with as little clothing as possible with children in the house while licking icecubes and making grunting noises in the general direction of anyone who dares disturb your wilt …………….

Where was I? Ah, yes, I don’t mind the temp at the moment, but it has a nasty side effect that drives me nuts.



Little white or brown moths.




Little biddy spiders.






And all of the above mentioned bugs seem to think that they need to be inside the house with me! (ok but not redbacks – just other spiders in general. We only find redbacks outside but that was the spider pic that creeped me out the least so it was the one that I used) and somefreakinhow the little crawly/flying/bidey things are finding their way inside with me.

I’m getting to the stage where I’m seeing things out of the corner of my eye  and jumping out of my skin quite regularly throughout the day.

PSLS has a job to do this weekend……….. fixing all screens, filling all gaps, getting around to putting on the weather strips at the bottoms of the doors and respraying the entire outside of the house with bug repellent cos having all these bugs inside is really starting to bug me!

will be quiet.

Miss Lou went on school camp on Tuesday morning. No mobile service at camp.

CJ went on school camp on Wednesday morning. Again, no mobile service at camp.

PSLS is out shopping at the moment and will be leaving shortly after lunch for Dandenong. Unreliable mobile service along highway.

TJ is in bed fast asleep with a tummy bug. Has no mobile.

So it’s just gonna be me and my Shadow

photo0501Yes, that is actually our dog’s name.

And the roses




laughing at the people trying to catch the escaped horse galloping up and down our street.


Screw Up Tuesday November 4, 2008

Oh where to start this week………..

Let us start with PSLS. Always a good place to start I think.

Do I tell you of how he felt the need to explain that he has teenage daughters whenever anyone so much as glanced his way while doing the grocery shop for me at Aldi last week and buying sanitary pads? Or of how he came home with 12 tins of cat food that our cats won’t eat……..

Do I tell you of how he dragged us all up to his nan’s place the other day at 2:30 and knocked on the door to no avail only to get out his mobile phone to ring to see where they were only to find a txt from an hour earlier telling him they wouldn’t be home between 2 and 4:30……….

Do I tell you of how he was timekeeping at swimming club the other night and forgot to press the buttons on the timing machine during one or two of the races leaving some poor kids without times for their efforts……..

Perhaps you would like to hear about the cup full of cola that he left sitting on my foot rest under my desk for me to knock flying?

You know what? I can’t really top these this week so I guess I’ll finish with PSLS too who keeps managing to tell his uncle and nan that I’m sick instead of telling them the truth – that I can’t keep helping nan as I always end up hurting myself and am still having physio after the last outing I took nan on cos I’m not meant to be lifting wheelchairs or people! *rolls eyes* How hard can it be to tell them that they’ll just have to organise the damn home care that they need because it’s too much for me?

ahem. Back to the funny.

To have your name added to the Screw Up Tuesday Honour Roll simply link to me and leave a comment and I’ll link back to you.
