The Quickest 24 Hours Ever

Sunday, 17 March 2013 21:33 Published in Chubba's Pool Room

We had scheduled a kid free weekend away for about 10 months (yes that’s even before Ernie came along). It was finally here. The reality was that both of us were not really prepared for how tough it is to leave your child with a babysitter for the first time.

Today it’s bloody hot and uncomfortable. The kids are whinging, the parents are whinging, the pets are whinging, and in fact everyone is. So what does a family of whingers do for entertainment? Go out to a massive public event and cook in the hot sun, of course. This should give us enough whinging ammo to last until the end of this March record breaking hot spell.

OK everyone, this is a sponsored post. Before you decide to go back to reading about your Aunty Betty’s bunions on Facebook let me reassure you that you won’t see the company’s name over and over again.

It takes some time to be different

Going back to the well and putting my proverbial bucket in and pulling out another child six months ago seemed at the time a little ho-hum to people. Whilst many people manage to fake it enough for you to think that they are as excited as you, they are really thinking “you already have kids, sorry we aren’t that excited this time”. 

Cranky Santa

The most important part of Christmas for any parent is the visit to Santa and the photo. In case you haven’t noticed yet I am sentimental and enjoy smultz by the bowl full. So I like to keep family traditions going for as long as possible and the number one on this long list of traditions is the visit to Santa. It has to be at the traditional department store in the city and there has to be a day off dedicated to the event.
