Thanks

My Mother is nothing or no one special. I try to be an attentive and diligent parent. I believe I do okay and my Dearest is good at it too. We try not to miss much, try to get the kids involved and be involved with them. All the while being aware not to push […]

Taking the Piss

I sit down to pee. I don’t throw like a girl. I never had a great arm, but nor was it a bad one. Besides, I preferred to field in closer to the action. Cricket is a great way to ruin an entire Saturday anyway. If I have a feminine side, and I don’t believe I […]

Hi di ho Neighbour

Ever regret not having made the effort? How many times have you seen the neighbour over the fence? How many times have you seen him/her/them getting into their car, just the driveway over? How many times have you bumped into them on the street, in the local convenience store, at the nearby petrol station? The […]

What do you do when your wife, the woman you ‘obtained’ is unobtainable?  My wife is a babe. She’s hot, in a ‘Don’t be ridiculous, I’m not hot’ sort of way. She isn’t the woman I married, nor is she the woman I met. All those many years ago. My wife has changed and adapted, […]

Mandate

In the immortal words of George Greegan “Four more years…” Except of course, it is three.   Election night. #decision17. Plenty to take home from last nights results and still plenty to play out, before we find out exactly who will be governing this country and what format that government will take. Some obvious things […]

Rolling Stone

Am I too old to rock? If Jagger and co still do it, surely I can too? In February I am off to the Foo Fighters. They aren’t actually my thing but check out their new album, Concrete and Gold. Bloody magic. Backing up Dave, of former Nirvana fame, and his pals, is Weezer and […]

Passion

My wife thinks I need to be more confrontational. More controversial, if I want this blog to be a success. The One Who Must Be Obeyed is of the opinion I need to say or highlight something that is going to go viral. Stir up the masses and create debate and argument and conversation. Maybe […]

Kiss My Baby

Election time is nearly on us and do you feel your vote has been adequately canvassed? No one has kissed my baby. I mean to say, we cover the little mite in love and affection, and yes, kisses. That is our job and we couldn’t help ourselves even if we wanted to. The whole lot […]
