*skids to a halt*

Well fuck ME, that was one furious post break-up blogging frenzy (about mostly nuthin!).

I’m off for a vodka and a lie down.
Back when..ya know…something ACTUALLY happens…

It's not me, it's SCIENCE...

What is it about a break up that makes you want to get drunk and flip the bird...

...flash your boobies...

...and flirt incessantly with the maintenance guy at work?

Well, I was watching my favourite tv show the other night and there IS a scientific explanation.  

Please observe ...

Yup, that explains A LOT.

PS - it's the first ep of the new season of Big Bang Theory - The Skank Reflex Analysis, which hasn't aired in Oz yet, but it's worth the wait.

10 years on...and Catch up Vlog

Well this was supposed to be a really awesome vlog about the 10 years I've been a single mum, but it just ended up being me rambling and playing with my hair a lot.

You get that....

A conversation with my mother

I wish my mum had never joined Facebook, and I'm kicking myself for telling her to join.  She stalks my profile every night and interrogates me later about things she just doesn't 'get'.  Subsequently, I've stopped posting anything bloody interesting on my regular profile and had to start a separate 'Fifi' profile.

Another one who's regretting my mother's presence is my daughter.  A 15 year old girl does not need her nanna stalking her either.  I often get calls asking me to clarify something Alex has said or done online.

Below is a transcript of last night's call...

Mum:  You didn't tell me Alex had a job.

Me:  Ah, that's because she hasn't got a job.

Mum:  Yes she has.  She said on Facebook she has a job.

Me:  Mum, I think I would know if my own daughter has a job!

Mum:  Well maybe she doesn't tell you everything.  Have a look at her profile.  Up the top where it says 'Works at'.

Me:  Ok, hang on....

Me:  Ok.

Single again....

....and I'm more than fine with it.  This break up started 4 weeks ago and my feelings for him evaporated not long after. 

Not gonna talk details here, although some of you FB buddies already know.  HIS issues, not mine.

Not going to waste any more energy on it.

My daughter is awesome, and growing up into such a beautiful young lady, both inside and out.

We don't get a lot of 'mummy/daughter' time these days.  She's usually occupied with friends either in person on online. But we do get some special time.

Lately, more often than not, that time has been in the car on the way to school.  It's a new thing.  She used to walk to school, now she's turned into one of those lazy teenagers I used to hear about - but I don't mind.
It's our time, every weekday, when I can spout - Mumisms.

Topics covered include -

makeup tips
clothing tips
updates on MY love life
healthy eating
the importance of a good education
when is she going to get a part time job...

Ok...I call it 'special time'..she calls it TRAPPED IN A CAR WITH MY FUCKING MOTHER.

I predict she will start walking to school again VERY soon...
