Mums the word

Mothers Day. A day of blissful relaxation, breakfast in bed and maybe some new slippers right? Ummm... no. For most of us, Mother's Day is often just another 'special day' that our husbands are away for. Or if your other half is like mine, he has probably forgotten it anyway. But as you know, I'm not into taking the Pity Train to Woe-Is-Me-Town so instead I have decided that I am going to use Mother's Day to celebrate the fact that I have made it through another year without selling my kids on eBay and to reminisce on some of my Mother of the Year moments for the past 12 months.

Mother of the Year moment #1
I took my son to school on a Public Holiday. Lucky I noticed the lack of people when we got there so I turned around and brought him home.

Mother of the Year moment #2
I fed my fussy child Weetbix for breakfast, lunch & dinner because I just couldn't be bothered arguing with him that day.

Mother of the Year moment #3
Asked my son to go and get the mail and then proceeded to start closing the garage door because it makes me laugh when I watch him scramble to get the mail and then try to run back inside before the door shuts. (OK, I must admit that I still do that regularly because it's just too funny and he just never learns!).

I'd love to hear all of your Mother of the Year moments (so I don't feel alone in the failure category lol).

Happy Mothers Day!

Until next time,

Pretty please...

Morning all! No ranting from me today. Instead, I have a request.

I often see comments about my latest blog post on Facebook groups but I am can't really respond without giving up my identity so I would love it if you could give me feedback either via the comments section on my actual blog or via my Facebook page (click here to 'Like' my page if you haven't already). If you comment via my actual blog can stay anonymous if you wish, which is only fair seeing how I am choosing to do the same.

I love getting feedback (both positive & NEGATIVE) so please, lay it on me! Give me all you've got!

Until next time,

Like sands through the hour glass... these are the days of our lives

I don't even know what to say after the events of the last few days. For those of you who have chosen not to participate in the 'Cage Fight' Facebook group, let me give you a quick recap... (names have been changed so I don't get hate mail to protect privacy.)

Jane is pregnant and posts in the group that she is going into labour early. Jane texts her friend Sally and asks her to let the group know she has given birth to a baby girl and said baby is in NICU. Sally, along with other members of the group offer their support and well wishes to Jane and her baby girl. Fast forward a week or so and it is discovered that Jane has lied about giving birth to baby girl. She has in fact given birth to a boy over a week later than she had originally said. All hell breaks loose when Sally and the rest of the group find out they were lied to.

So that is what happened. No, I'm not joking. If I could make up stories that good I would be a millionaire Hollywood scriptwriter instead of sitting here on my couch writing this little blog lol. What was even more entertaining was the flood of comments that followed. No doubt about it, as a moth is drawn to a flame, so are army wives drawn to drama. I have to admit that for the first few hours I found all the craziness pretty amusing. But after a while I started to fee sorry for the people like Sally who had put themselves out there and built a Facebook friendship with Jane. I'm sure that because of this incident they are forever going to be very guarded and possibly find it hard to connect with other wives online for fear of being fooled again. My advice to Sally and others is this - don't let this woman's obvious issues stop you from creating some beautiful and lasting friendships with some non-crazy women!!

Well that is it for me. I'm off to pitch my latest script idea to my Hollywood agent.

Until next time,
