Have a laugh on me

We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

Six months ago I was a blog virgin – now I am the town bike!


It’s been half a year and I’m still here, attempting to bring a little cheer!

It hasn’t always been pretty, but I’ve done my best to be witty.

Ummm yes this is actually me at university with a great big dirty bottle of beer!

Ummm yes this is actually me at university with a great big dirty bottle of beer!

Just six months ago I leaped in head first, not realising that soon I would become immersed.

Now it seems that I can’t get enough of this world, just as long as I haven’t made you hurled (come on cut me some slack – it’s hard to rhyme all the time).

So if you haven’t guessed that my blog is six months old then you’re either hungover (on a Tuesday, good effort!) or I haven’t been clear enough, which isn’t surprising.

I won’t warble on about much I enjoy the honesty, advice, funnies and frankness that goes with blogging, but suffice to say I do, A LOT.

And big shout out to those who take the time to read what I write and comment – you rock my world!

Here’s six things about the number six in honour of Have a laugh on me reaching six months.

1. I’m up to level 63 in the land of Minty Meadow of Candy Crush Saga. It’s like crack for those with an addictive personality, so if you have one – DON’T GO THERE!

At the moment I dream about sprinkle covered chocolates frolicking with stripey red jellybeans – You’ve been warned!



2. This Sunday I celebrate six years of being married – what a ride it’s been (sometimes literally, grrrrowl!).

I can’t imagine life without the Husband by my side and our children adore him more than chocolate.

I didn’t believe in soul mates until I meet him – I also didn’t believe in the man flu!

I look all teeth here but it was totally me, cheeky!

I look all teeth here but it was totally me, cheeky!

3. It takes me six minutes to open a Chupa Chup – NUP – no exaggeration!

My youngest son was screaming in anticipation, as were the dozens of other shoppers wishing I would hurry the f#*k up and open the lollipop!

Totally eyeing up that sucker!

Totally eyeing up that sucker!

4. Some of the funniest six search engine terms for my blog:

Soulmate sounds like something the devil put in his coffee ecard – ummm are you sure he’s not your cell mate?

Why have my boobs never been perky – because you’re probably a man!

Does bending over for the fart out – I’d suggest lifting one leg to get a fart out.


Nothing like a shit and a shower – hopefully you’ve just returned from camping.

I like last Saturday – seriously? Is that the only thing you can think to type in to a search engine?

J cup breasts aren’t as big as you think – probably because you’re searching for ways to make yourself feel better for deciding to get WHOOPER silicon baps!

5. My sixth blog post was one of my most read – despite the fact I didn’t know about bloggy linky – so 99 per cent of you haven’t read it! (HINT HINT).

Check this out – it’s called – It’s not a democracy it’s a dictatorship! – it’s also very similar to what blogger legend Jess wrote about yesterday.



6. For the past two days the kids were up around six – for those who aren’t aware my three kids usually wake at dawn’s crack – aka – 4.30/5am – leaping, bellowing and running around like headless chickens (who can actually can run around without heads for a few seconds, sad but true).

I’d like to think that this is going to continue, but because I have said it out loud it won’t!

Alright time for some constructive criticism peeps, so unleash the beast and let me know what you love/hate or want me to keep doing!

It’s Tuesday and I blog (instead of playing CCS) and I link with Jess @ Essentially Jess for hosting IBOT!

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  23. Only six months? It feels like you’ve been around forever! In that good way, of course. x

  24. Happy Half Blogaversary! I agree, it’s hard to believe you’ve only been around that short a time, you’ve made such an impact and have been responsible for more than your fair share of inner ab workouts in front of the screen. Don’t change anything. YOU GO GIRL! šŸ˜€

  25. Six months already! Those search terms are cracking me up and chuppa wrappers, what is with that, sheez, as if us mums had enough to deal with!

  26. congrats on 6 months (and 6 years!!) You have to be one of the fastest risers i have ever seen in blogland – well deserved.

    and what the fuck with the chuppa chup wrappers – it is like a sadistic a-hole created it just to piss off parents and kids – it’s a lollipop not a vault! if a 4 year old cannot open it you have failed! deb xx

    • I think they do it to piss us off Deb, it’s like they know we only give them to our kids we when are DESPERATE and have cameras that the entire R&D staff laugh at – GRR. Thanks for always visiting and commenting! x

  27. Congrats on the half birthday. You looked gorgeous as a bride too.

  28. I don’t even remember how I ran across your blog a few weeks ago but I was hooked pretty quickly. You’re super funny. šŸ™‚

  29. Had a good laugh at those SE searches… that is funny shite! This is my first IBOT link up and, like you, I’ve only recently discovered the addictive side of this blogging stuff. Not quite the town bike… think I’m just at the ‘looking to hook up… long walks on the beach…’ Stage. Glad I found this post!

  30. I am a Candy Crush tragic too……….I ignored all the requested to join the game. Then one day thought “what the hell”…….addicted much?? AARRRGGGHHH!! Congrats on 6 months! šŸ™‚ x

  31. Happy 6 months! And oh wow Candy Crush…I am still fighting it. I have heard how addictive it is and I have way too many addictions already haha.

  32. Happy 6 months!!! Looks like you’ve caught the blogging bug for sure!!
    And happy 6 years too!! x Karen #TeamIBOT

  33. 6 months!!! Woohoo!
    I see big things for your blog, Em. Your Candy crush addiction? Not so much šŸ™‚ x

  34. Em you rock!!! Well done for reaching six months! (I think we might have to set up a CCS anonymous group) xxx

  35. Hooray for humour, well done you and here’s to the next six months. Hilarious uni pic, I can relate!!

  36. Love your work, you’re a funny gal. Here’s to the next 6….years? Maybe!

  41. Happy 6! So many good reasons to celebrate in this post – congrats xx

  42. haha who the hell searches for nothing like a shit and a shower. cracks me up. Ahm wow – 6 mths?! I think I was still stringing together sentences at that age – nevermind poetry but not sure about the ‘hurled’ šŸ™‚

    • I know right, some of the searches are beyond reason! As for my poetry – it’s totally crapola but hurled seemed a better choice than purled – especially considering I don’t knit šŸ˜‰ xx Em

  43. Has it really only been six months? That’s incredible! You’re doing so well!
    Cheers to the next six months xx

    MC x

  45. Congrats on 6 months Em! And, happy wedding anniversary! So glad you decided to join the blogosphere!

  46. Love it hard. The title – genius. Candy Crush Saga…argh, don’t even get me started. That bastard game takes up what little time I was dedicating to Ebay. Happy 6monthiversary!

  47. I am happy to be a part of what rocks your world.
    I don’t have much to add, apart from just keep doing what you are doing. I pop in each week (sorry time restraints) and always have a bit of a chuckle – so thank you.
    Oh and I love the wedding pic.
    Congratulations on all the momentous achievements šŸ™‚

  48. I’ve enjoyed every minute of the last six months Em. Congrats.

  49. Happy half birthday! I’ve avoided Candy Crush. I was addicted to Farmville when Ned was a bub and it took too much of my time and about $300 of my cash. Keep doing what you’re doing, it’s working! :>)
