Winging It

 Another Monday has rolled inconveniently around. They have a tendency to do that, the rude things. I must confess that my brain feels like cotton wool this morning even post coffee, so this post will most likely sound like meandering gibberish. Which is quite similar to most of my posts really. Consistency is important. 

Over the weekend Mr 9 became Mr 10. He had a bowling party which he enjoyed. I must confess that that I find the wall of noise in those places quite challenging. I've only just got my hearing back. However, I'd find organising a party at home even more challenging. Couldn't organise a piss up in brewery. Or a meat raffle in a butcher's. Or an orgy at a nymphomaniac convention.  You get the picture. 

With this in mind, I decided to finally get with the 21st century and purchase a new phone so that I could start using the calendars and reminders and things to help me become more organised. Shut up. It could happen. I could possibly even take a selfie for the first time EVER. I know - I haven't even LIVED. Apparently people can't possibly live these days unless they take selfies every 17 seconds and photograph their food before they eat it, so that's how I've come to the conclusion that I haven't lived. 

However, I must confess that I STILL haven't worked out how to use the contraption. I did point the  thing at my face thinking I'd take a selfie and recoiled in utter horror. Do I REALLY look like that? I think there is a reason I've never taken one. Nobody needs to see that. 


In other scintillating news I had my first tit crushing experience last week which was quite painful bracing. I have to admit to being a big scardey cat and feeling quite anxious about it. But it was over with in a jiffy. As they say, Mammogramming your boobs is more important than Instagramming them. Not that there is any danger of me doing that. I can't even Instagram my face let alone my National Geographics. But yes - PETRIFIED before hand. You'd think nothing would scare you anymore after experiencing childbirth, right? WRONG.

Especially since experiencing childbirth usually means you now have children. Which is scary. Because you worry about them all the time. I must confess that after watching this report about a paedophile ring and all the media coverage about the Daniel Morcombe case recently that I've felt sickened and horrified. It makes me question all humanity and the wisdom of blogging at all. Sigh. 

Now I need to mention cake again quickly just to lighten the mood. CAKE. There, that's better. Yes, I did have a lovely cake filled weekend because of Mr 10's birthday and Micky Blue Eyes loading up with a few cakes from an old favourite cake shop we hadn't been to in years. He isn't helping my addiction. He is furthering it. I knew I married him for a reason. 

Anyway, it appears that there is a mountain of washing awaiting me to be put away so I had better end this gibberish here and get on with it. 

Later dudes.

  1. My monday has consisted of cleaning the house and I've had my jug, oh I mean mug of coffee and I really need another. My son is at daycare so it's a day at home on my own, bliss...although I'm sure, knowing me, I'll find lots to do and by the end of the day will not feel relaxed at all. I'm the same as you when it comes to a new phone. I swapped from iphone to android and I've often regretted my decision because I still haven't been able to figure out the new one. I don't know if it's the fact that the phone isn't as good or perhaps its just me who hasn't figured out how to use it properly!

    1. I simply can't keep up with technology. Sigh. Hope you did take some time to relax.

  2. Now the trick to the selfie, take it from high, to minimise chins appearing, tilt head a bit and take a few til you find one that looks nice. Or bugger it and put horrible ones up like I do a lot. CAKE! Happy 'birthday' to your boy and 'birth' day to you. Washing, will it NEVER END! xx

    1. Yeah I definitely need to minimise chins plus filtering for all my wrinkles. Thanks for the birthday wishes. xo

  3. It's still Sunday in the States, so don't talk to me about Monday. Sure glad I don't have to deal with woman things like mammograms. My wife says that if she'd known what female was going to be like she would have opted out.

    You make an interesting point about technology and how it affects us. Have you ever heard of the Amish here in the States? They're a religious sect that lives in the eastern part of the U.S. Their relgion doesn't allow them to live with technology developed much past the 19th century.

    I'm a very tech oriented person and I couldn't live without my stereo and music, but sometimes I think the Amish are right about the distracting nature of technology.

    Just think that when its Monday here, it'll be Tuesday there. I'll be dealing with Monday and you'll be that much closer to Friday. You can't get to Friday unless you start with Monday.

    1. Yes, my Mum always says she's coming back as a man if that's a possibility...

      I have watched a couple of documentaries about the Amish. Very interesting but I don't think I could live like that. Exactly - would need music. Hope your Monday wasn't too painful. :)

  4. I've been trying to embrace the selfie in an effort to find my right angle ( I don't have one ) and be more comfortable in front of the camera ( it hasn't worked). I'm needing to move on to full DIY everyday style shots. They aren't exactly pretty. I'm not exactly giving up. Perhaps if they turn especially ugly someone will pay me to stop posting them to instagram and the blog? lol

    1. You always look great Rachael so I'm sure your selfies are fine. Eventually I'll post one but I might have to actually tart myself up a bit first lol

  5. I take the odd selfie but they are not a daily thing for me. Nor is taking shots of what I'm eating because it's usually not that interesting really, especially if I was the one who prepared it! My Mr 9 turns Mr 10 next week and wants a space party with a rocket cake that he has selected and given me careful instructions to make. Good lord save me...

    1. Same - my food is never that interesting. Good luck with the cake. I prefer just eating them actually...

  6. How clever of you to organise a 10 pin bowling party for your boy's 10th birthday!!! We did the same when our girl turned 10 :-)

    I haven't ever had a mammogram. Oh yay. Just one more thing to look forward to ...

  7. I'm not much of a selfie taker, altho I'll concede to the odd one or two - mainly taken with my DLSR so I can Photoshop the shit out of them before they ever see the light of day...
