That's 2!! Just 2 weeks 'til I wake up next to Bams :o)
I'm on holidays at the moment...and the best bit is that none of it comes out of my annual leave. I work at a university and we don't get a lot of the Monday public holidays during the year, but the uni shuts down over Christmas and we all get the time off. This year it closed lunch time on 22nd Dec and won't open again until 4th January - AWESOME!
Then, I go back to work for just three days before I am on actual leave again and off to Sydney with the kids!! I can barely contain myself. But, I've managed to get through seven weeks without him, two more's not gonna kill me (I hope!).
Christmas was the usual. Not a massive fan but do like to catch up with my crazy rels and see the smiles on my thoroughly spoilt kids faces when they open their presents (yes I spent way too much as usual). I was spoilt by the kids too and also received the most incredibly thoughtful, hand-made gift from my beautiful man. Feeling very special at the moment.
Unfortunately it was the usual stinkin' hot Christmas here. Nearly 40 C yesterday. Estimated 38 today and 40 again tomorrow. SUCKS, but we have a heavy duty aircon so I'm not leaving the house for the next 2 days. Bugger the after Christmas sales, I'm camping out in my loungeroom!
I hope you and yours all had a wonderful day too x

So I have a stat counter. It can tell me a lot.
I love seeing all the little country flags pop up showing people from all over the world landing here, some by accident, some not.
I'm not obsessive about it, it's a public blog, but I do notice if something unusual shows up. Sometimes it's a 'trawler' who's going back through all my old posts. I don't mind trawlers at all. I have lots of old posts I am proud of and it's great when they are discovered by someone new to The Fifi Dangerfield Files.
Bams reckons I'm a stalker stalker. I'm not. Well.....ok, maybe I am. Ok seriously, if I wasn't in my current job I would be probably be working for ASIO. I admit it, I'm pretty fucking good. I'm an analyst by nature. I can take information and find the patterns. It's my thing. I also found it very useful when I was studying.
I just had to laugh on the weekend when I saw several hits on The Man Flesh Files in 'search' mode. They searched for the following....in this order - 'size', 'sex', 'cock, 'dick', 'penis'. You know who you are.....I don't!
Curious, I did the same search, and here are the results.
SIZE - several results....mostly to do with the SIZE of my arse or the SIZE of my jeans.
SEX - a few more results...mostly to do with my LACK of it.
COCK - zero results
DICK - zero results
PENIS - zero results
Yes I am happy to announce that over the last two years I have not mentioned cock, dick OR penis once. It's not been by any means intentional....I was quite surprised myself!
However if they were to search VAGINA.....
Oh fuck it. Now I've said ALL of them.
Oh fuck it. Now I've said ALL of them.

For Christmas 2000 I ordered 65 copies of this photo for our personalised cards from Kmart.
The woman asked me twice, and then someone called me at home, to make sure THIS was the one I wanted to send out to everyone.

So, my mother is one of my Facebook friends. Don't ask me how this happened. It just DID.
Anyways, she's hardly ever on there but when she is she stalks me.
Bams and I loved to muck around on Facebook before we met and we still enjoy having a laugh on there but things can get a little...naughty.
Those of you that read Bams' blog may be familiar with his post on having laser hair removal on his gonads. That's all I'm going to say really.
The following are excerpts from actual conversations that took place over a couple of days. Only the names have been changed to protect the.....whatever.
Facebook - Frankie's Status Update (in part) -
Frankie - I wish I'd not come in. Work sucks big hairy balls today (more than usual)
Bams - Well my goal is to make sure you never have to suck big or hairy balls again! And I'm doing my bit!!
Lara Croft - Get a room!
Conversation the next evening at my mum's for dinner with the kids -
Mum - Were you and Bams talking about rambutans on Facebook yesterday?
Frankie - Sorry...what?
Mum - Rambutans, the fruit. You were talking about sucking hairy balls. That's what we called rambutans back in Ceylon.
Alex - *spits food out of nose*

I wrote a few weeks ago about our new/old address and of the magnificent tree the kids played in. Well here it is in all it's summer glory.
It's a liquid amber. The owners prune it right back every winter so it's developed a really sturdy inner structure and is covered in lush new growth every year. Just perfect for climbing.
But, the kids don't just climb it. They bloody live up there! I thought my daughter, at 14, may have outgrown it but she and her friends are up there nearly every afternoon...ipods and phones in tow. They just hang around up there for...well, it's been 2 hours now!
I took some photos of them earlier but I can hear some more kids up there now. As I write this, it's 6.30 on a beautiful summer evening and there are about 8 kids up there (I just ran out and counted). You can't see ANY of them (but they are quite loud).
Here are some photos. The bottom one was taken 8 years ago, when Ethan was around 3 and Alex was 6.
We LOVE the tree :o)

So.....after last week's pathetic attempt at trying to do a VLOG update on my love life (below), I thought I would give it another go -
It's going well. REALLY well.
Today marks four weeks since Bams left and things are just...... lovely.
I thought our time apart would be excruciating.....but it hasn't been. Things have just gotten better and better.
Because we can only express ourselves with words (and the occasional pornographic photo), we've become closer than ever. And as much as I would love to be near him, (instead of 4000 kms away), I can honestly say that I wouldn't change a thing.
Yeah, I'll admit I've had a couple of moments where I've let my over active imagination get the better of me, and have had what can only be described as a 'spazz', but overall, it's been just DELICIOUS.
And what's most delicious is the anticipation of when we will see each other again. It's not like before, when we hadn't met yet. It's different now. And, I'm sure after our next meeting, it will be different again. And what a meeting it's going to be!
In less than five weeks time Fifi, Bams and five kids aged from 11 to 15...together, in Sydney, for 8 days. S-E-R-I-O-U-S-L-Y. I'm beside myself with excitement! (ok...and a little fear). I just can't wait. But I have to. So, I will continue to enjoy all the romancing between now.......and then :o)
And, in January, we'll hatch plans for .... the next time.
