Is it just me…..

…or does getting out of the house on time (to kinder, for example) mean leaving your home in such a state that on your return, you can't rightly say whether the house has been ransacked by thieves while you were gone?

I mean, yes, I could spend less time on Facebook before having a shower but what's your point?

Also, does anyone else have a pile of books beside their bed just taunting them? Magazines from August still in the platic wrap they were posted in?

What about dinner? Did you ever feed your kids tinned spaghetti and toast for dinner? For, like, an entire week?

No? Me neither….

And finally, is it just me or is it a shame that this button cute photo of Zig and I was taken on a low-res kid camera?

Cute StuffButton cuteness captured by Luca – mad composition skillz, kiddo.

Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    If it makes you feel any better, I have a stack of mail that was forwarded to me by my parents, many months ago, still sitting unopened next to my bed – including some official-looking stuff from the AEC. Probably related to a certain election over a year ago, that I was unable to get my arse into gear and postal vote in time for.

    Yeah, I am that slack.

    I don’t even want to know how much I’ve been fined.

    Feel better?

    I do have a stack of books next to my bed, un-read. BUT – I will admit that lately I have been buying myself books I have wanted to read, and then reading them. Yes, I have READ. Crazy!
    So of course this means I am up till 3am reading, just so I can READ, which of course means I am a cranky bitch the next day and yell at my kids.

    Call DOCS. x

    PS I made the most amazing hot chips and hamburgers tonight. Although the kids looked a little puzzed when I asked them to include the take away shop owners when they said grace….:P

    Ummm, yes? Although this has reminded of my intray which contains paperwork that should have been filed…a year ago…

    But YES! You’ve cheered me right up! Thank you. 😉

    Buying and reading? Crrrazy talk!

    You make me laugh. God bless you take-away, burger man!

    Magazines still in the wrappers months later? OMG, I’M SO GLAD I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE.

    Also, you two are adorable. Low-res or not.

    We had baked beans and spaghetti on toast for dinner last night! lol And yes! Gorgeous pic!

    highly embarrassing confession: we actually WERE broken in to once and when the police came they thought the place had been ransacked. umm… no. now i try to get some semblance of ‘just kid mess’ in the house (which covers a whole range of messiness lol)

    the pic IS good… love the glossy look that the low-res has facilitated in the touch up… like you’re glowing 🙂

  8. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Oh dear, Kea! That is my nightmare.

    And thank you for the photo compliment – almost sounds like it’s coming from a trained eye…?
