V’Day

Posted on February 14, 2016

Happy Valentines Day everyone! Yeah, it’s that day of the year again where you fit into one of the following categories: Spoiled by gifts and affection and find yourself uploading to social media for the world to see Receive nothing and it makes you so angry your mouth foams like a rabid dog Don’t give a shit but still acknowledge the day by saying the mandatory line to your significant other Don’t give a shit but are guilt tripped into it by your significant other to pretend you give a shit Do the washing, fold the washing, get grocery shopping done, light housework and feed the house and then remember it’s V-Day but don’t give a shit… Regardless of where you fit into this list,…

Big Babies?

Posted on February 12, 2016

I don’t often talk about my births… but I read this the other week and while at my Chiropractor this morning having my pelvis realigned, I kinda thought I might like to put in my two bobs worth. Big Baby Article – Huffington Post: Australia What is classified as a big baby for one, perhaps isn’t for another; it might be fucking gigantic, or even just average for some and then for a few with WonderVagina superhero blood running through her veins, it’s small. According to the article published in the Huffington Post, it appears that the accepted large baby cut off is 8lb 13 oz and, that a great chunk of expecting mums are being told that there baby is ‘bigger than average’,…

The Reach.

Posted on February 11, 2016

I have a few friends doing it tough at the moment. This is for them. By doing it tough I mean, living lives they didn’t expect they would be. Like most of us I guess. Divorce. Anxiety. Financial strain or extra mouths to feed. Addiction and recovery. Grief and loss. Depression. It is endless. Today for many, is a constant struggle. Just to get out of bed, or to even get dressed; or maybe not making that peanut butter sanga, because they just can’t justify using the peanut butter, and instead saving it for one of the mouths they need to feed, and so they stay hungry so others will eat. The struggle is real and it is profound, if you only take notice.…

Australian Private Health Insurance – The fucking JOKE of the country!

Posted on December 9, 2015

Today I wrote a short email to our Honourable Minister of Health, Sussan Ley MP. Safe to safe, I didn’t swear but I’m not fucking happy JAN!!!     Hello  Sussan, Firstly, thank you for beginning the conversation regarding the value of the current Private Health System here in Australia. I wasn’t able to fill out the survey as I didn’t know it existed until today, but I would still like to put my personal point of view across, if I may? We are a hard working couple with two teenage boys, who have been covered in the system for over a decade. A decade is a long time; watching premiums rise every year and the ability to claim fall. We are currently covered…

Chisel at the Rock. Nom’s dig on it…

Posted on November 23, 2015

For anyone who knows me personally, they will know I am a HUGE concert goer and live music fan. I’ve seen a modest genre of bands from the glam rock of Kiss to rocking it out with Motley Crue and then to the swaying ballads of Rod Stewart or Chris Isaac and then there is Ricky Martin, FLOP… the one and only concert I was happy to walk out of mid concert. Anyway, I thought I would just do a bit of a recap on Saturday nights event, the Australian icon band of Cold Chisel, supported by some amazing local talent including the LIVING END! Hanging Rock in its own right is an Australian icon, a picturesque back drop to a concert stage, or day at the races. What a…

Puke

Posted on November 18, 2015

I was scrolling the news feed on Facey today and come across a video of a couple of kids trying weird arse flavored jellybeans. One of them was flavored ‘Skunk Spray’. Now,  that one thought makes me think about vomiting, let alone actually trying one of these nasty little beans. The footage shows this little chap popping the jelly bean in his gob and pretty much immediately he starts to gag, spit, splutter, gag again and more spit. Then the dry retch begins. Before long this flows through to a beautiful projectile vomit all over his faithful spit plate for the nasty tasting beans he’s holding and spraying all over the table. It’s about this stage I am flat knacker laughing out loud at…
