Angel's Gate

Sorry about the serious and deep posts lately! It's the pregnancy hormones!! I need to losen up ffs! But today I wish to do a post on a subject that is very serious to me, and that is my love for animals!!!

I must admit that I am a coward when it comes to hearing about or seeing documentaries of animals in suffering, cruelty and torture. I often turn my head, change the channel or shut people down when they speak of heartbreaking stories concerning animals.

My heart aches for animal's, I love them more than humans themselves, animals are my heart and my passion. But it pains me so much to hear of any kind of story of animals in suffering that I selfishly often ignore it, and would choose to turn a blind eye because I didn't want to face the truth.

But in doing so, my dream of helping and giving my support on the issue to the best of my ability was disabled. I would sit back and ignore it without trying my hardest to do what I could to support these animals in suffering when really it's all my heart has ever desired. I always wanted to be a vet to play a role in helping animals in need, but I chickened out because I didn't want to deal with the heartbreak of not being able to save all of them. So instead I chose to save none at all, and I really hate that about myself.

I've spent far too long putting my own feelings above the help needed for these animals, and have wasted so much of my life that could have been spent, doing something to help.

But one day, many months ago I was watching an episode of the Oprah show and it was about 'Oprahs's most memorable stories' at the time I thought that it would be pretty safe as it didn't seem like there were going to be any heartbreaking stories about animals that I couldn't handle seeing. But all of a sudden, unexpectedly a heartbreaking story came up.

At first when they showed clips of animals that had been in suffering, my heart immediately broke and tears swelled in my eyes uncontrollably. I couldn't get to the TV quick enough to switch it off because I didn't want to face it.

I remember specifically seeing an image of this beautiful little dog who had been cruelly abused, violently shaken by it's careless owner and paralysed as a result. It was in that moment that I reached for the switch because I did not want to see any more.

But just before I pushed the button, I was extremely overwhelmed to learn that there was a lady that would take animals like these under her wing and had devoted her entire life to do every thing she could to give a better life to these unfortunate precious little lives.

She uses her own HOME, a residential, non-profit, home, for special needs animals. Here, animals many of whom are terminally and / or critically ill or physically challenged, go to live out their days in peace, dignity and love. Her focus is on wellness and quality of life. She and her family provides for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of each animal and takes a holistic approach in animal care, giving all needed supportive services including hospice care.

Currently, at her home they care for some 200 individuals of many species. These include dogs, cats, parrots, ponies, ducks, swan, pigeons, geese, chickens and rabbits. Dogs and cats receive a raw food natural diet (B.A.R.F. diet) specially prepared by a local butcher.

These animals are her pets. Most are free to roam their home and/or the spacious back yard. Dogs and cats are not crated. Only the parrots are caged. The water fowl, chickens and pigeons are penned at night for their protection.

There is never a fee when she adopts an animal with special needs. They depend solely on supporter contributions which come to her from all over the United States. They even have supporters from as far away as Canada, France, Germany ,The Netherlands, Africa and many from Japan.

This lady is everything that I wish I was as a person, a selfless angel with a heart of gold and I idolise her more than any other person in this world. I had absolutely no idea that there were people like her out there, because I never took the time to allow myself to listen long enough to hear if there ever was a happy ending to heartbreaking stories such as these. Sure I know of animal shelters and the RSPCA, but I've never heard of any one that has put so much heart into it the way she does.

The thing that touched me the most, was that I was able to suddenly see past the disabled animals in their walkers, bandages and heartbreaking wounds, instead the biggest thing that stood out to me was the joy in their eyes and the big happy smiles on their gorgeous little faces.

These animals are clearly loved and cherished in the way that they deserve to be, and seeing that turned my tears of sadness into tears of joy. It truly was a dream come true, one that I never even thought was possible.

It was after seeing this that I realised that it was time to face my fears and get to doing what ever I could to finally help in any way possible. It was such an overwhelming feeling to know that there is hope for these unfortunate animals and one of the main ingredients is cleary love.

Unfortunately, not long after seeing this episode, I had forgotten to take note of the name of this organisation. I couldn't for the life of me remember the name and I searched for months and months on the internet trying to find it again, but I wasn't having much luck at all.

But 2 DAYS AGO... the most amazing thing happened.

I was doing my daily blog reading when I headed to read Nitebyrds recent post. She mentioned in it about an organisation called 'Angels Gate.' I immediately had chills as it rang a bell to me and I realised that it was the name that I had been searching for all this time!! She even linked the site to it, so after many months of searching for this organisation, suddenly with one click of the button it was staring me right in the face! (THANKS AGAIN NITE! xx)

The name of this lady that I speak of is Susan Marino, the founder of Angel's Gate... my Idol!

Now that I have finally found Angel's Gate, I have no idea where to start. I'm just taking it all in at the moment because it has touched me so very deeply in ways that I can't even describe.

Of course when I get a chance to discuss things with hubby, I'd like to look into giving a donation of some kind. Although we are really struggling financially at the moment, with hubby not getting much work due to a bad back, me having no job and being pregnant, expecting our first child in January, this is not going to stop me from contributing in some way.

In fact, a donation alone just doesn't seem like enough to me, I wish to do something far greater to support Angel's Gate! I have no idea what I'm going to do at this stage but I vow to dedicate my support to Angel's Gate in any way that I can.

I intend to go to tremendous lengths to help in any way that I can, whether it be a fundraiser or something even bigger if possible! I will research into it and see what I can come up with, because this means the world to me.

But in the meantime, I wanted to start by doing a post about this amazing act of selflessness, kindness and dedication to these animals in need.

And I ask that if you too are an animal supporter and are just as touched by Susans dedication as I am, please check out their website and maybe even offer a small donation if you can afford to.

You can even sponser an animal if you want to... they are all so adorable! I wish I could sponser them all!!!

But I've got my eye on this this angel...

ABBY: Only recently adopted, this sweet little Chihuahua has had a lot of medical attention and the best they can hope for, they are told, is that she will survive and remain paralyzed permanently. They have already spent $1600 for her and soon there will be bills for neurological consults; re-splinting; pain meds and the purchase of a dog cart.

It can be hard to believe that animals in such critical conditions as these could possibly live happy lives. But I assure you, if you could only see the love and support and attention Susan offers to each and every one of these animals in need, you will be very surprised and thrilled by just how happy spirited these little guys are!

If there is ever a case where an animal is unhappy and is in consistant suffering with their conditions, and she has tried her hardest at doing what ever she can in her power to bring them joy in their life, but it is in their best interest to be put down... she will do so.

No animal suffers in her care.

Out of the mouths of babes!

With every post I do I like to add an image that suits it, I usually look for cute and funny google images, but in this case I just couldn't find any children cuter than these girls!!

These are Trubs beautiful little girls... my lil angel pies who I adore!!! 'Sugar Plum Bum' 8 yrs old, and her gorjus lil sis 'Grubby' who recently turned 1! Aren't they precious?!!

Ooooo while I'm at it... I can now share a piccy of Trubs latest little blessing 'Bubba boy' who I recently had the amazing experience of watching being born!!!

He's a special lil guy! And I will be thrilled if my baby turns out even half as cute as these kids!!!

Anyways on with the post...

That top photo was taken at another friend of ours baby's first birthday last Saturday, it was a lovely day at the park where we were surrounded by lotsa kiddywinks!!

The best conversations are the ones you have with kids, they say the damn CUTEST things, and they don't even realise it! With some of the cutesy convos I had with some of them, I got to thinking about some of the best kiddy lines I have heard and I wanted to share them.

First of all when I first arrived at the party, I seen a little girl 'Petal' 5 years old who I haven't seen in such a long time. She spotted me first and ran up to give me a hug, I was soooo excited to see her!

This is how our conversation went...

Petal: *running from a distance yelling with excitement* "GIGGLEEEEEEEE..."

Me: *Hugging her* "OMG Hello Petal!!! I haven't seen you in so long!!! How are you???!"

Petal: *Catching her breath* "I'm Good thanks, I didn't pee the bed last night OR the night before!!!"

Me: *Giggling* "Oh that's EXCELLENT hunny! You must be very proud!"

Petal: "Yes! I'm a good girl, aren't I!!"* as she runs to the playground*

I just love it! I wish we could all be as open as children are!!

Kids can also be great therapy too!!! Well... sometimes anyway! :-P

Another conversation I had with her a long time ago was when I was at Trubs house they were having a little gathering and I wasn't feeling 100% with food poisoning.

Petal caught me with a frown on my face and ran over to me.

Petal: "Giggle why do you look so sad?"

Me: "Oh I'm not sad hunny, I'm just not feeling very well."

Petal: "Well you should feel happy all the time, do ya know why?"

Me: "Why?"

Petal: "Because You're BEEEEEAUUUUTIFUL!!!!"

Me: "Awww what a sweet thing to say Petal, Thank you!"

Petal: "And you know what?"

Me: "What?"

Petal: "When I grow up, I'm gonna be as beautiful as you too!!!"

Me: *Giggling* "Oh but you ARE beautiful Petal and you always will be!!!"

Then you have the kiddy crushes!

Another time years ago, there was this gorgeous little boy that lived next door "Spiderman" about 4 years old at the time. He has an older sister so I use to go over to play barbies with her!

Spiderman had a bit of a crush on me, and use to pick flowers for me and was keen to do anything for me.

One day he approached me with something I was not expecting...

Spiderman: *Gets down on one knee* "Giggle, when I grow up I'm going to marry you...!"

Me: *Stunned*

he continued...

Spiderman: "... So who are you gonna marry?"

Me: *Rolling on the floor laughing!!!*

Unfortunately things didn't go to plan... Hubby beat him to it! Sorry Spiderman!!! :-P

A similar thing happened years ago with my friend Red's little brothers 'Cheeky' and 'Cherub' who are twins about 5 years old at the time.

They too both had a bit of a crush on me and would fight for my attention.

One day when I was over their house I spotted Cherub sitting in the corner crying he's little heart out.

I walked over to him...

Me: "Cherub whats wrong??"

Cherub: *Rubs eyes* "Cheeky said that he is gonna be your boyfriend!"

Me: *Blushing* "Well he can't decide that! But why are you so upset?"

Cherub: "Because I WANT to be your boyfriend! But he says that I'm too young for you!!!"

(Cheeky is like 2 minutes older than him!!)

Me: *LMAO* "Don't worry about it... besides, just between you and me... I think you're cuter than him ;-)"

Boy did that boost his little ego!!! Even to this day LOL! (They are now 20 years old mind you!)

But then you get the ones that can be a little embarrassing! Although this next one was cute as hell it wasn't appropriate timing!!!

Hubby and I use to go to an awesome church when we lived in NZ where it was always packed with hundreds of people!

The room was dead silent when the pastor would talk, you could hear a pin drop it was so quiet!!

There was this cutie little boy 'Pokemon' 3 years old at the time who would love to come and sit with me and Hubby during the service. He would often sit on my lap, sometimes Hubbys.

This one particular day, he was sitting on my lap facing towards me, and the Pastor was preaching on a very serious subject.

Pokemon kept poking at the buttons of the pockets of my top which were practically in line with my nipples! Hubby kept whispering to him... "Pokemon... don't do that" because sometimes he would pull the buttons so hard, that my top would start to fall down showing my cleavage!!

Even the whispers of Hubby attracted attention! As quiet as he was, heads would still turn to see where the whispers were coming from!

The pastor had JUST finished a speech and was preparing to put a video on for us to watch, when the room went completely silent!

In that exact moment... Pokemon yells "WOW!!!! You've got BIGGGGGGGG TITTIES!!!!!"

And of course there was not one person that didn't hear it and didn't now have their eyes on us!!

LOL so embarrassing! But at the same time I was pissin myself in hysterics!!! Even the pastor had a giggle!

I could go on and on about more of the cutest conversations I've had with kids, but this post has to end somewhere!!!

But the cutest thing yet that was an absolute heart melter was when Trub handed Grubby a chocolate milk last Saturday night and Grubby's eyes lit up and said "Tocky milk!" It was soooo gorjus!!! She's only 1!!! And they are the first (English) words I have heard from her so far!!!

Just gorjus!!!

What is the cutest conversation you've had with a child?

Oh and Muussy... if you're reading this, can you remember a specific funny convo that came out of my mouth as a child?

Baby Kicks and Braxton frikkin Hicks!


It Hurts It Hurts!!!

Well I'm almost in my 3rd Trimester now... just coming 25 weeks pregnant, and only 15 weeks to go!

(Hang on that can't be right!!!? *Trying to add it up in my stoopid baby brain* HECK!! That's right!!! SHit.. there's not long to go at all! I'd better get cracking on the nursery then shouldn't I!)

Anyway! The baby is around the size of a football now with not a lot of room to move! So it's kickin around like crazy, giving my bladder the kicking of a bloody lifetime, and having me very near to setting up camp in the dunny room again!

It has the hardest little kick, and you can even SEE it's little footprint and toes sometimes! Unless it's something else!? :-S

It's quite a cool experience actually, but it can get kind of annoying when I'm TRYING TO SLEEP!!! Just imagine the heck it's gonna put me through when it is born! :-P

But it's the sharp kicking I can deal with! The braxton hicks on the other hand are flamin horrid!!!

It feels like my pelvis is a frikking wishbone, and there are two strong muscly men - one on each side, playing tug of war with my HIP BONES!!! Heck it's painful!!!

ANd this isn't even the real deal!!


Other then that, it hasn't been the greatest last couple of weeks for me! I've been suffering a bit with insomnia! I seem to be able to fall asleep at the computer just fine... and even while I'm on the DUNNY! But as soon as I hit the bed... I am wide awake! So I haven't been sleeping much at all... to the point where I've even been hallucinating!!!

I've actually been seeing a social worker for the last couple of months, which has been REALLY GOOD! But she believes that I have a serious case of post traumatic stress! I actually had a breakthrough a couple of days ago, where I was able to finally discover the core of my issues! (The one thing that can fix everything if it is changed!) But it is soooo deep and such a long story, I'll save it for another post.

All I'll say for now, is that she was so spot on the mark, I actually fainted when she brought it up because it was that intense and so hard to hear, and something that I have avoided thinking about for like the last 17years it hurts that much!

It is a good thing, because I have come to a huge realisation, but it has also had me an emotional wreck having the past brought up and being confronted with it like a punch in the head!

So it has had me on edge lately, even to the point where little things have made me snap, even smashing cups and plates and stuff just to release a little anger!! :-S Eeeeek!!! But my Social worker says it's all normal at a time like this.

Another thing that has been playing on my mind is that one of my old class mates from high school committed suicide last week! He gassed himself in his car!

Don't feel the need to give me condolences because although we were in the same class, I never really knew him, so I don't feel the pain of losing a friend. But I couldn't imagine how his poor family and close mates must be feeling, so I do feel terrible for them and him, who must have had it tough to go through with giving up his own life.

It has effected me though that someone MY age could end their life so young! I mean, suicide in any situation is devastating, but from someone my age, who went to my school, and was in my class is all the more devastating and scary to me. It's so scary to think that tragedy's like these can happen far too easily.

The suicide rate has certainly increased lately too and it scares the heck out of me!!

Too much pain in the world!!

Speaking of tragedies happening so easily, hubby had the day off work today because he has had serious problems with his back. Some time while I was sleeping, he went out to the pharmacy to get some pain killer, and ended up doing some other things that had him out for hours.

During this time, I was woken by a high pitch alarm and without even remembering I flung up and ran to the kitchen to find a pot and a tea towel on FIRE!!!! Hubby had put some eggs on to cook and completely forgot about it leaving it unattended!

All I can say is THANK HECK for smoke alarms!!! Because without it, our house would probably be burnt to the ground right now, and I most likely could have died!

It's frikken ridiculous that these things can happen so easily!!

But anyways!!!

And now to end this post on a good note...

CONGRATULATIONS to Trub and Crazy who are engaged!!!! Crazy proposed to Trub just hours ago! Woooooohooooo! Bring on the Hens night... Oh! I mean Wedding!!!! :-P

BTW... I may be a little too busy for posting and blogreading in the next couple of weeks, as I have some serious NESTING to do! :-)

My Hubby is THE MAN!!!


Hubby and I have a great fun playful relationship! We always poke fun at each other for silly stuff!

Hubby is the most sweetest charming guy I have ever met, but he can have a bit of an ego and can be a bit vain at times! Nothing serious, but I'm always giving him shit about it!

Like, a woman just has to pass him by, and he'll think "Oh yeah! She wants me!" He'll have a joke about it, but I know he is being half serious!!!

Like this one time when I was working for JSD construction, he would hang out at the beach when he finished work while he waited for me, and he would do push ups and bench presses to kill time.

Heaps of guys work out at the beach it is very popular and there are people EVERY WHERE! It is not uncommon to work out at this beach, they actually have gym equipment there to use!!!

But one day after he picked me up, we were driving home when this funny announcement came on the radio! A woman had rang up and said that she had spotted this 'hot guy working out at the beach' and she wanted his phone number!


But Hubby was dead sure that she just HAD to be talking about HIM!

Who knows, it may well have been... but he refused to believe that it could possibly be anyone else ffs!!!!

So with Hubby's beliefs on attracting all the ladies, I decided to put his theory to the test!

Don't get me wrong... he's a catch!!! But I wanted to see what would happen!

So ages ago, I signed him up to an Australian dating site called Red Hot Pie and I made up a public profile of him to see how many chicks he could pull!

Well! He was right... he got A LOT of attention!!!

I am bombarded with emails every frikken day with tonnes and tonnes of interests!

Here are a few of them who have contacted him, looking for a 'good time!'

Now for the fellas that just got a little excited by this pic, thinking it was a CHICKS arse... THINK AGAIN!!!

Cutie Buns is a bloke!!

I am happy to wait for you while you run to the toilet and vomit!

Oh! Were you expecting to see profiles of really hot chicks?

Well HA!!! So was Hubby!

No... actually, I kid you not... these emails I am bombarded with are all from GAY GUYS!!!

Ahuh! Gay guys that are looking to push my Hubbys poo!!! (Yes! One guy even used those words!)

Here are a few more of my favourites...

Awww he seems sweet enough! But sorry Sexy Boy... IT'S NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!

Hmmm if you were a chick, Horny you would be perfect for Keithy!!

Awww poor Gramps! I feel sorry for him! Now if Gramps were straight, I would hook him up with Grams!

And here is my personal favourite...

So I guess Hubby really is the man eh?

As dissapointed as he was that he has only attracted male attention, even still HE BLUSHED about it!!!

OK so I lie!

There was this ONE chick...

I've gotta wonder why you would want to bring candles to the park on a warm SUNNY day! But other then that... Kitty Kat seems lovely!!!

I'm sure if Hubby was single he'd be very interested in this sexy beast! But since he is taken... ugh... sorry love!

So Come on fellas? Any takers?

Let me know and I'll hook you up! :-P

Well I managed to do it!

Today is mine and Hubbys 2nd year wedding anniversary WOOHOO!! And as promised, I managed to publish the next RAT GiRL episode JUST in time for it!

WOAH Hang on! Hang on! I know you are dying to go and see it… but just read this post first ffs! :-P

With every RAT GiRL episode I like to have a real life version story to go with it, as every SINGLE episode is based on a real life event!

And with this episode being about my Hens Night… I thought I’d better do a post about it so you can get the gist of the comic version!

My Hens Night ROCKED and it was very…very… PINK!!!!

And I mean everything was Pink! From the games and prizes…

To my cute little outfit…

From the food and cocktails…

(Our pink G-String cock waiter!)

To my fun dressed up guests!!!

(Red, Cockwaiter and Hef)

First we had cocktails and played games at Muussys house…

(Hef and her Mama)

And then we went on a pubcrawl!

(On the bus)

Where we were forced to follow really hard rules and had to scull alcohol from a hideous funnel if we broke one!

(Me sculling from a penis funnel from in between Trub's legs!!! Tricky stuff!)

By the end of the night we hit the night clubs…

(My Brother 'P's Girlfriend 'A', Hef, Pup, Hubbys sis 'M', Me, Red and Lolly's head at the back! )

It was so much fun!!!

Hubby on the other hand… was not having such a great night!

Unfortunately I don’t have any photos of Hubby Bucks night because the guy I had in charge of the camera took nothing but stupid photos of girls tits and arses (No fellas! I’m NOT going to waste my time posting them! :-P)

But the guys tackled Hubby down and handcuffed him to a blow up doll (*GiGGLeS*) and then they dragged him into town.

Heres a pic of me with his blowup doll…

All was a great night for him until he ran into a guy who I’ll call Dread (because he has dreadlocks) and his girlfriend ‘Slag’ (because ffs she is one!!!.)

I’ve actually mentioned Dread before in my ‘MONSTER 1’ story… but it is a RIDICULOUSLY long post to read again just for the section on Dread!

So to cut a long story short… I met Dread years ago, he was a mate of my ‘Ex’ and we were great friends, I bent over backwards for him, I thought I could trust him and I had great respect for him!

After coming back to my hometown years later after living in New Zealand for a couple years, I got a job in a construction company where (as most of you know Monster 1 attacked me!)
I was surprised to find that Dread was actually a worker there so it was great to see him again and catch up.

The problem was that Dread and Monster had a very strong friendship, so when all that crap happened with Monster hitting me, of course Dread took his side.

But the thing that Dread and his Girlfriend did that I can never forgive them for, was on the night of my Hens night and Hubbys bucks night… They spread all these horrible rumours to Hubby about me – such as I had apparently offered Monster to have sex with me in the bathroom!!!!??? (Which he wouldn’t have turned me down if it WERE TRUE!!!)

Dread tried to convince Hubby not to marry me and that I was nothing but a slut and a liar!

I’m so grateful that Hubby never believed him for a second, but it really broke my heart that Dread (who I adored and thought the world of) tried to sabotage my own Wedding just DAYS BEFORE!!!

Could you imagine what could have happened if Hubby believed him?!!!

I still cry myself to sleep about it!

So you guessed it my friends!!! RAT GiRL gets her revenge on the mungrals! :-P

So Hubby didn’t have a great night at all! But at least on the night before our Wedding he got to make up for it by spending all night at a strip club with his groomsmen! *GiGGLeS*

OK… so NOW you can go and see the episode!

By the way… I know it takes AGES to load the piccys even more so with each new episode added - as the more pictures there are - the longer it takes to load. So I’m very sorry, but it wouldn’t be RAT GiRL without the pictures! LOL So please just bare with it, be patient, and open it up and let it load in the background while you do your other things, and get back to it when you’re ready for a giggle!

It takes me about 6 hours to upload each fecking episode! Surely you can wait 10 mins for crying out loud! ;-)

WTF Is it with you fellas and your remote controls?!!

Bloody hell!!! As I write this... and I mean RIGHT NOW!! I've got a head scratchin Hubby searching around the HOUSE for the remote control!

So what eh? Whats the big deal?!

Well... fair enough to want the remote control... it's handy to have and get yourself comfy on the couch with the TV in your control, saving you from having to move at all!

But the thing that really annoys me... is that Hubby just REFUSES to walk up to the TV to either change the channel... or turn it down.

And right now my friends... he isn't looking for the remote control to CHANGE the channel but to turn the volume down!!!.

This is how the conversation went:

Me: "Ooooo heck hunny, that TV is a bit loud, could you turn it down a bit please... it's BLARING in my ears!"

Hubby: "Um ok, do you know where the remote is?"

Me: "No Hun! You probably left it in the dunny room again!" (Yes! He'll even take it to the shitter, he loves the damn thing so much!)

Hubby *Walks PAST the TV and heads to the dunny, to see if its there* "Nope, not there."

Me: "COme onnnn turn it down, it's killin me!"

Now I'm watching Hubby pull off the couch cushions one by one... searching to see if it slipped through the cracks!!!

Oh! Now he is looking UNDER the couch! ... Nope... not there!

Well! Now he has even walked UP TO THE TV to look on top of the TV for the REMOTE!!!!

Will he turn it down using the TV? Will he?...... Will heee?.....


And now he is distracted again by the bright colours of the television... he's slowly backing away.... backing away....
oH! He's sitting down again, eyes haven't left the screen!


Hubby: "I couldn't find the remote!!!"

Me: *Standing up from my desk and walking over to the TV (To where HE JUST WAS) and turning the sound down on the tv control panel (hard to miss!)*

Me: "Why didn't you just turn the fecking thing down on the DAMN TV!!!"

Hubby: "I couldn't be bothered!"

So it baffles me how Hubby 'Couldn't be bothered' to walk up to the TV to change the channel or the volume, but he can spend a good 10min doing strenuous exercise SEARCHING for the remote! Even looking AROUND the TV (But he still couldn't be bothered to lift his finger to the button while standing RIGHT THERE!!!)

Like the other day... Hubby had the day off work because of rain, and when ever he is home we enjoy watching Dr Phil together! But with my sleeping pattern all over the place, I had been sleeping in till late. So Hubby agreed to wake me just in time to watch Dr Phil!

Me: "Don't forget to wake me for Dr Philly Cheese hunny! You know I hate to miss it!"

Hubby: "I wont forget, it's a good one we wouldn't want to miss!"

(In fact - it was the second part to the first part that we watched so it was ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT!!)

By the time I had woken up.. it was long past Dr Philly time! I came running out into the lounge, hoping that my clock was wrong - to find Hubby laying down like a couch potato watching some weird arse SBS show that he wasn't even enjoying!


Hubby: "OH Shit!!! Sorry Bub, I forgot!!!"

Me: "YOU FORGOT!!? But... you were looking forward to it as much as I was!!! HOW DID YOU FORGET!???"

Hubby: "Well... I remembered about 20 mins before hand, so I went to change the channel but I couldn't find the remote. I searched and searched but couldn't find it anywhere! So in the end I gave up and forgot all about it!"

Me: "Have you been watching this crap all day?!!!!"

Hubby: "Yeah, it's rubbish! But I didn't have the remote to change it, so I've been stuck watching it all day!"


Hubby: *Scratching his head*

Me: *Changing the channel on the TV to something better!*

Hubby: "Ahhhhhh.... that's better!"

He shits me to tears I tell ya!

free myspace layouts

Ahhh! The other day when I posted that I was bored and desperate for a meme... I just so happened to get a visit from a blogger who I had never met before with the perfect solution for my boredom!!

What a coinkadink!!!

Her name is Misssy M and she randomly landed on my blog through a little project she had set for herself, (Perfect timing!) which I gotta say... is a bloody great idea!!!

Thanks Misssy Moo! I'm looking forward to having you as a new blogger buddy!!!

Now! Misssy explained in her post how since starting her blog she had blogger friends coming and going. One of them being Peach!!! Who is also a very dear friend of mine and I too was sad to see her go, but I am happy to still have contact with her via facebook and email!

Misssy states that during her blogging experience she has realised 5 things, which I wish to repeat because I believe we ALL can relate to these things...

1. That she'd become set in her ways in the blogs she read. Me tooo!

2. That she hadn’t been actively looking for new good stuff so it was all her fault. Guilty!

3. That she pretty much ignored people’s blogrolls, which is a bit stupid. It's too easy not to!

4. That good blogs are bloody hard to find (there’s some right shite out there, isn’t there? If you don't believe me try Stumble Upon and you'll see...). Tis true, Tis true! Like this one time... while I was surfing the blog sphere I clicked on a blog titled 'cutie pies!' Me expecting to find a sweet innocent blog full of cute stuff like animals or babies and things was shocked to find a blog full of gay pornography!!! DOODLES and BUMSEX EVERYWHERE!!! *cringes* My poor virgin eyes!

5. That you can’t rely on your old favourites to keep on keeping on, you’ve got to seek out new favourites once in a while. So true!

6. And that she can’t count. *GiGGLeS*

So she started this meme to gee us all up! It’s called Kick your Blogroll up the Arse.

The Rules of Kick Your Blogroll Up the Arse

(Hint: This is the cut out bit for you to post)

What you do is you go to four of your favourite blogs and pick a blog from their blogroll that you’ve never visited or commented on.

You then add them to your blogroll or feed, read them for at least a month (by which time there should be no turning back) and give them a chance to invade your life.

Then you duplicate the main part of this post with a note on whose blog you got it from.

Stick the four new blogs you are going to read up , tell us briefly why you chose them and whose blogroll they came from.

And if you want, coerce others mercilessly into joining in. Then start reading.

OK! So... I have chosen these:

First I went to Ronnies blogroll because I knew it would be safe to pick ANY ONE of his readers! Because anyone that follows Ronnies blog is MOST LIKELY going to have a great sense of humour! So! The person I randomly chose from his blogroll was...

Leesa!!! Her name caught my eye because it was only yesterday that I met a very lovely lady with the same name... so i took it as a sign! The link led me to her blog 'NEWS FROM FRANCE' and sure enough, I liked what I saw! From what I've read she does have a great sense of humour and apparently she gives out free brownies too! :-P Bwahahaha!!! Ok Maybe not! But if I do some serious sucking up, maybe she'll give me the recipe because they look screen-lickin good!!!! Welcome to my blogroll dear Leesa! Prepare to be stalked! :-)

Next I headed to Aunty Vi's blogroll, because well quite frankly - any friend of hers is a friend of mine! So the victim I chose...

Fwengebola!!! Ok so I cheated a little here! Because there were soooo many to chose from - I got Aunty Vi to recommend someone that she think I might like! Well she proves to know me well because the link led me to his blog 'I HATE THE EARTH' and before I laughed my arse of at his posts, I was already in hysterics at his profile alone, and the gorgeous little photo taken of him at 6 years old!!! HAHA!! (Like a redhead Harry Potter!) Now I also know that he will be on holidays soon and probably wont be posting much for a while, but I like what I see so much that I'm gonna keep him anyway! Welcome to my blogroll Fwengebola! I look forward to reading more of you!

Next I went to Rheas blogroll who is also a witty character and undoubtedly attracts fun attention in her neck of the woods! So many to choose from though, this cowgirl has A LOT of friends!!! So I scrolled down her blogroll and searched for the most appealing blogname I could find! Which was...

Welcome to The Nut House!!! What can I say!!! It sounds like my home! And right at home is how I felt when I entered Shannons blog!!! Anyone who starts a post off with a *Burp* followed by a photo of a DELICIOUS yummy meal... becomes an instant friend of mine! *GiGGLeS* Welcome to my blogroll Shannon! I'll be popping in for dinner often!! :-P

And lastly I stopped by :-Daryl's blogroll to search for my lucky last victim! Daryl also has a good range of friends that share the same interests so I knew I couldn't go wrong! The blogname I chose...

Brit Gal' in the USA!!! Because I love Brits to bits! I love a girl who calls herself Gal' (hehe) and I am curious to know how a Brit Gal' fits in to the new lifestyle of a chilled out place with tornado's after living a high stressed life stuck in traffic! I was impressed with Brit' Gal Sarah's blog! Who is not afraid to do a gruesome post about her toenail being ripped off and sharing the gruesome photos to prove it! Gotta love the gross stuff! :-) Welcome to my Blogroll Brit' Gal!! I can't wait to see more photos! :-D

SO there ya go!! I've adopted 4 new Blogger buddies whether they like it or not! hehehe!

I urge that all my readers do the same too (even if you're a lurker!... Yes you! I can seeee youuuuu! :-P) ... because I do believe it is a very neat little project, and a great way to make some new friends! But I respect that not everybody may have the time or even the desire to meet new people at this stage... so I shall leave the ball in your court!

Thanks again Misssy Moo!!


I've just discovered from the lovely Lady in Red another great little way to find great blogs from an amazing little widget named 'BLACK BOXES' created by a very talented lady named Caroline Smailes!

It's incredible!!! All ya gotta do is click on the decide button... select your choices from choice A and choice B and it will take you to a mystery blog!!! It is very addictive and all the rage at the moment!

You can also contribute your own choices and put in your URL for others to land on your blog too!

I've had a few landings ALREADY!

Go on! Have a go!

OMG!!! Well as some of you already know... my dear real life mate Trub had been expecting to have a baby any day now!!

I was actually chatting with her on msn at around 1:30am this morning when she went into labour!!! (I couldn't sleep because of my snoring Hubby and snoring cat as I spoke about in the post below!)

So I was immediately overwhelmed with the thought of the baby coming, and I asked that she and her partner 'Crazy' keep me informed with what was going on!

At around 2am they called me from the hospital to say that the baby was definitely going to be born very soon! I actually live quite near the hospital... so Crazy ducked over to pick me up and brought me back to the birthing suite where I got to watch THE WHOLE THING!!!!!

It all happened so fast! AT first I thought "OMFG Giggle what the hell are you thinking! You're going to witness the horrendous pain that I myself will have to experience only months away, and there is no bloody turning back now!!!"

But it was really quite a comforting experience (if you know what the hell I mean!)

Trub did awesome!!! At first she was calmer than me!!! She was the one telling ME to relax and to 'breathe in and breathe out!' I thought 'Hang on! Isn't this suppose to be the other way around!?' LOL! But when I finally pulled myself together and trusted that she was in good hands, I relaxed a lot more for her.

After all is was HER in labour and not me! heehee!

I sat with her through her contractions... her screaming in agony (the poor poor darling) and I was blown away with how polite she could be to the midwives while under so much pain!!!

She helped me understand so much that I had no idea about, and talked me through the process of what was happening and what to expect next! She's AMAZING I tell ya!!! AMAZING!!!!

So at 3:47am this morning out popped a beautiful baby boy!

She even gave birth on her DUE DATE! Which is pretty rare!

I thought I was gonna be scared off for life watching the baby come out... but when I saw the head... I just could not look away! And I wasn't freaked out at all! It was very overwhelming actually, and surprisingly I found it very comforting!

In fact! It wasn't any where near as bad as had ever imagined it to be! So I am sooo glad that I was there, and so, so privileged to share this experience with them. Thanks Darlings!!! It's one experience I'll NEVER FORGET!!!

Trub will be seeing the doctor some time this morning, as bub is not quite in the clear yet (with the scare of a gap in bubs scull that showed up in her scans.)

But I feel he is gonna be fine... because he looks absolutely perfect!!! :-)

Sorry... I haven't a piccy to show ya's yet! I rushed out so fast I forgot to grab my camera!

But I'm sure Trub will post some soon and with more details on the gorjus little bundle of joy!!!

He's beautiful!!!

(I hope this has made sense... I haven't been to bed yet so I'm a bit of a zombie at the moment!!)

Please send Congratulations
their way!!!

Snoring Snoring everywhere and no where to freaking sleep!

So it's hard enuff to sleep with my humongous ever growing belly!!!

No! This pic is NOT of a white and green puffer fish that swallowed a watermelon... it is of me!

A very pregnant me!!!

I've gained about 10kilos, my hips thighs and arse have ballooned, my feet are starting to swell, my BOOBS are in a world of their own, and my belly... well! You can see the evidence!

I look like a flippin oompaloompa ffs!

But it all comes with the pregnancy eh?!

And I am only gonna get BIGGER for fucksake!

So as I was saying... it's hard enough to sleep how it is!!

And then theres all the kicking that comes with it, just as I finally get comfy to nod off!

I'm telling ya... this kid is the next David Beckham! Or a flamin famous Kick boxer which I don't know any names of!!

I mean just look at the legs on this kid...

They are flippin HUUUUUGE!

We're even seeing footprints now - pushing out of my belly!!! It's insane!

But anyway... it makes it harder for me to sleep.

Then there is that point where I've finally got myself into a comfy position both for me and for the belly grub after it's kicking has finally calmed down and at last I'm heading off to la-la land.

And then it happens...

The horrid sound of a big fat boar snorting continuously in MY EAR!!!

Yes my friends... HUBBY'S SNORING!!!

I love that fella to death but HECK his snore is horrendous!! It's so flippin loud even HE wakes up at the sound of it and just about craps himself because he thinks he is under ATTACK!!

It all starts with this high pitched little whistle in his nose... which sounds like a boiling kettle in the distance!

That is the warning sign for me where I have to think quick to get myself to sleep fast before the earthquake begins!!

But I never beat it ffs!

So after kicking him a few times and putting a peg on his nose (yes I keep a peg by my side of the bed!) and there STILL is no stopping it. It is then that I will move to the couch in the lounge room!

Again... I get myself comfy and wait for the baby to settle down now having Albert snuggled up on my lap (our latest addition adopted cat) and all is fine and dandy.

When I hear more snoring!

AT first I think "Flippin HECK! Hubby's snoring is seeping through the bedroom door now!!"

But it wasn't... it wasn't Hubby at all!

I followed the sound of this new annoying snore and was surprised to find that it was coming from...


ALBERT!!!! The snoring CAT!!

OK... I have had 8 different Cats now, and not one have them have snored! Have you ever heard of such a thing!?!!?!!!!??

And I don't mean just a little heavy breathing either - I mean full on hog snorting, nose whistling SNORING! (OK not as bad as hubby's but close enough!!)

Seriously... He has the actions to it and everything, he lays on his back belly up with a mouth like a flytrap, gut moving in and out to the motion of his snore and his paws twitching to his little snorts!

I am sooooo waiting for him to do it again, so i can video tape it and post it! I sware he is a freak of nature!!

But in the meantime... where the heck am I gunna sleep!!!!?


Bored and Curious!

Shyeah! I'm bored as heck and I seriously have NOTHING to post about for once! I mean NOTHING!

Someone give me a meme or something ffs! Put me out of my MYSERY PLEASE!!!

I am sooo bored that I started going around to blogger profiles and checking out their 'random question' sectons and their answers to them! Heck they were some hilarious ones!

So I'm curious... tell me what yours is?

(You know what I'm talking about right? in your profile?)
For instance - my random question is:

'For your birthday, your aunt gave you a maple syrup dispenser shaped like a rooster. Please write her a thank-you note:'

My Answer : "Thanks Aunty Vi, but I woulda prefered a rabbit shaped as something else!"

(It's a personal joke that only her readers will understand!) LOL

A Childhood Memory!

Yes... this piccy is of me when I was little having a nynybys!

I was going through all my poems and stuff that I had written years ago, and I came across this one that I thought I might share with ya's !

I wrote this poem when I was about 10 - 11 years old, but that's all I'll say for now... have a read of it and then I will explain!...


I’d like to tell a story, a story like no other,
It is about someone who was a Daughter and a Mother.
She spoke another language, and couldn’t speak her mind,
She always kept to herself and was never unkind.

Her children were killed not long ago, her Mother murdered too,
She saw the whole thing happen, there was nothing she could do.
She’d stay out of peoples way, and traveled all alone,
She’d hide in dark places and had nothing to call her own.

She had no friends or family, no one knew she was alive,
Her only goal in life, was just simply to survive.
No body ever knew her; this really makes me cry,
The only time I saw her, was when I watched her die.

This isn’t just some poem; this story is very real,
Now take some time to think, how does this make you feel?
Well I don’t know about you, but it makes me really sad,
It makes me feel so selfish, of the bad life that she’s had.

Now there is much more to this story, and I think you just might find,
That once you read this next bit you’ll probably change your mind.
You see, she was a cockroach; she didn’t have a name,
Now ask yourself this honestly - do you still feel the same?

Now that you know the truth, you probably feel relief,
You may think she was just some pest, not even worth the grief.
But to me she was much more; she was just like you or me,
The only difference about her was that she was treated differently.

If this was someone you knew, it’d feel like a nightmare,
But at least they’d be remembered, and people would really care.
For a cockroach its different, no one really gives a shit,
They are treated like a piece of scum, and I’m so fed up with it.

Well I want you to remember, next time you see one flee,
That cockroach is running, because it just wants to be free.
Now you could either stomp it, or kill it with some spray,

But it’s not out there to hurt you, so just let it run away!


LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!! Talk about obsessed with all animals great and small eh?!

I can laugh about this now (but I will still never harm any creature) but at the time, I was just a child, and I remember being in the kitchen when Mum spotted a cockroach and grabbed the spray to kill it!

I watched it die, and my heart completely broke! I was so distraught, that I ran and locked myself in my room and bawld my eyes out! It was then that I picked up a pen and wrote this poem!!!

Go on! Laugh at me! :-)
