Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....



See this everyone..it is a sign of things to come...an iced up windscreen on a car = WINTER..Brrrrrrrrrrr. Both of our cars had thick ice over them. It is 8:33a.m. right now and it is 2.3Degrees Celcius....enough to freeze oil!!

So with this first snap of chilly weather..has anyone got advise on how to beat the coming Winter months? The kids all woke up frozen and we had to thaw them out in front of the heater. The baby woke up and snuggled in between us at 5a.m...her frozen little butt certainly woke me up in a quick second. Looks like hot water bottles will be the way to go. C'mon Summer....hurry up and get here already!!!

In addition to this here post, a 3:40 p.m. addition, my son's just got home from school. They had an out of uniform day at school today. Don't, just don't, for one itty bitty second, think that it comes free. No sireee/maaam, nothin' is free in public education anymore! In fact, they had to fork out a dollar for the priveledge of wearing and possibly shabbying their casual clothes! Then, next week they have a BBQ fday at school. Price of a sausage in bread with a dab of sauce...$1:80. Inflation hell yes it is.....just 3 years ago a snag in bread was .80cents. It is a crime!! I may just go get them fish'n'greasies for lunch and take it on down to them. I shall think about this some more later on. Oh yeah, and a can of sugar filled coca cola costs $1.20, robbery I say.

Further news has just reached home with the 9yr old giving me a new note from school...snags in bread are now $2..yes $2 EACH seems like a crime to me.

I was sweating all day just WATCHING my truckload of cabana boys. Upper 90s here, which is umm...about 36 degrees to you confounded not-Americans. When are you going to learn that everything is all about us? Haven't we made ourselves clear in everything we say and do? Is it too much to ask your nation to convert all measurements to our system, so we can understand what we read on your blogs? Bwahaha!

Don't hate me because I'm warm, or because I had a truckload of cabana boys. Hate me because I'm OH SO PRETTY.

That you are Hillbilly Mom. OH SO PRETTY, or is that PURDY??? I know whay it is so...because my ample bosom been your pillow of crying at night for the Diva in da house and the warmth of it has made your skin nice and clear and soft :)

Here's a solution: move to Queensland!

Thanks for writing this - I do so yearn for Melbourne (my fave city) - but entries like this bring me back to earth and I feel all grateful for the Brissie 'winter'.

Cazzie!!! said...

Sounds like an ace option there Comic Mummy......have to consult my family here and see what they reckon!!

The government paid me for mine, I got a baby bonus and each time they grew bigger, only thing was I had to have the 4 sproutlings. Now theyre down to my knees :(

My boobs can be used to hold a can of beer upright in between the cleavage!!! Does that make me a true Aussie woman???

Cazzie!!! said...

Phew, I don't think I could do that..unless I wore a push up bra and then put a meak tray reting on the mammaries there..but then it wouldn't do the right job...sauce...yes, BBQ sauce would be the go.

"In fact, with the space between them, you could also parade the meat tray for the raffle."
I could park the truck that brought the meat in too!!!

Rebecca said...

OK, getting rude now.
Would the truck be a B-Double?

Cazzie!!! said...

Perhaps a road train be more apt!!

Rebecca said...
