Coming soon - time to move on

Well, I reckon I might be in for a life change soon. Am contemplating resigning from my job.

Yes, the money is good and does wonderful things to reduce the mortgage but I am just finding it too hard to do justice to my primary role - aka being mummified to little fella - and doing a 4 day week (and a 5 day workload) in the corporate world. Plus - he was sicker than your average bear for 5 months this year and when a little one if sick - he needs his mummy even more.

On the downside there will be more - ie cleaning up of his vomit, wiping his snotty nose and, my personal favourite (not), convincing him to take his ventolin when he gets a chest infection and cannot breathe properly.

On the upside - I will get to practice my goofy dances with him as we watch "the Wiggles" on TV (a kids show here), I will also play chasey up and down the hall with him while giggling madly. And he is already cognisant of the dangers of when I become the scary "kissing" mummy (run kiddo or you'll get covered in kisses all over your little face - again).

A pretty good deal really. I'll keep you updated on progress.

Honest injun

I found this on eternally curious's site. I love these little quizzes.

***You Are 72% Brutally Honest***
Most of the time, you tell it like it is. Even if it's hard for people to hear.Sometimes you hold back though, because you never want your honesty to be hurtful.

How Brutally Honest Are You?

Darker than the darkest night

I have been told that I am a sick puppy - with a sense of humour that is darker than the darkest of nights. BUT, this is just plain weird. What do you make of it ?

Dr Who ? You wot ?

Right. Let me be clear from the outset. I am what is commonly refered to as a "hoovian" and this sets me apart from those pipsqueaks who are now refered to as hoovers, schleps or drongos.

A hoovian is a fan of the old Dr Who. The one who thought, reflected and managed to think his way out of trouble and save the world. Yes, a little sexist but sex wasn't the point. And, if it was Tom Baker in the late 70's, pretty hot as well.

A hoover is someone who watches the new doctor Who and thinks - wooo - good action, love how they spend most of their time running like hell from the bad guys and rarely come up with anything approximating a clever idea. ie - thick as sh*t and thinks Big Brother actually refers to a reality show.

Yes, yes - Billie Piper is sex on legs - I am not arguing with anyone from the testosterone side of the fence that she is worth checking out. And frankly, I've always had a thing for David Tennant and would shag him stupid if I wasn't married and square. BUT PLEEEEEEEEASE - giveth me a breaketh.

Doesn't it bother anyone how far this thing has been dumbed down ? Doesn't anyone else positively yearn for some clever techo solution ? What about some intelligent dialogue ?

Is there anybody out there ????

Oh, and while we are on the subject, if you don't fix it, I will take over the control of the Cybermen and hunt Russell Davies down and torture him until he stops enjoying it. (That could take a while).

fair enough

Have been away for a while. No good reason, just the bad old reason of permanent exhaustion. Jet Lag without the cool destination. Will right this soon.
