Have a laugh on me

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

Why we blurt out stuff no one gives a flying fug about!


As far as over sharing goes I take the gong – those who know me personally will be nodding right about now.

I have a compulsion to blurt out all sorts of stuff no one really gives a flying fug about!

Take a visit to my hairdresser last week:

Are you impressed with how I managed to take this so NO ONE could tell - look at that concentration on my face!

Are you impressed with how I managed to take this so NO ONE could tell – man it’s not til I see this photo that my mum was right – I TOTALLY needed a mop chop!

Mildred (not real name) has been ‘doing’ me for five years and commented that I had lost weight (I haven’t – I was dressed in black from head to toe).

To which I replied: “Actually I’ve just eaten a massive lunch, I’ve got PMS and my stomach is huge I look like I’m expecting a fourth child”!

She was just lucky I didn’t grab a chunk of my love handle and show her what I meant – something I often do around my nearest and dearest.


I then proceeded to apologise for my “milk breathe” because I had just drunken an iced coffee – WTF – who cares right?

But that’s how I roll, like a train wreck down a hill.

No-one is safe, especially those who can’t walk away from me – eg check-out dragons chicks.

Most regret asking their polite “how has your day been?”.

This week I’m heading to my first ever bloggy meet up where I’ll meet lots of awesome women – including Janet (organiser) from Redland City Living and Lisa from Random Acts of Zen (sorry not sure who else).

They will totally get to see me in action, but I’m determined to wash my locks so I won’t have to make an excuse for why it looks like a grease trap!

If you had meet me on this day I would have pointed out the volcano on my chin and then patted my head and explained I had just had a massage hence the wet-looking hair

In saying that, as soon as I think someone is staring at my face for more than five seconds I will make some comment about how I need my eyebrows waxed, better face cream and a nose job.

As if anyone would have noticed my ‘flaws’ unless I had pointed it out.

It’s funny because I’m sure no one gives a left boob how I look – but guaranteed as soon as I point it out – someone will search for the spew on my shoulder!

I know most bloggers are over-sharers – but are you like me and point out stuff before someone else can pick up on it? Why oh why do we do it?

Have a great week peeps – I’ve got mum visiting this week to help me me de-feralclutter my house – should be a nightmarefun!

Thanks to the lovely Jess @ Essentially Jess for the IBOT link.


Author: Have A Laugh On Me

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.

  1. Hahaha – you’re too funny! I certainly overshare – isn’t that what blogs are for 🙂 My main problem is whenever I’m nervous, or I’m meeting people for the first time … sometimes I make these dry comments which just come out plain rude! I should really learn to ‘zip it’ and think of something sweet and sickly instead! 😉

  2. Ooh, we’re gonna have fuuuuuuun tomorrow!!!
    I’m constantly pointing out my many flaws Em, so we’ll have a great convo. 🙂 xxx

  3. As a fellow over sharer I am nodding frantically at every sentence!! I told my hairdresser all about my latest visit to the gyno – poor woman – I love her, she never bats an eye no matter how much I blurt out!! Thanks for over sharing!!

  4. Hairdressers and bloggers are so used to oversharing so I wouldn’t worry about it (imagine a blog by a hairdresser!). And now that you’ve pointed it out, I do see the resemblance to Bert, he he.

  5. No one would say anything if it weren’t for oversharing. How dull would that be? Enjoy your bloggers meet up. I’m depending on you to overshare the bejeepers out of that encounter. Can’t wait for the update.

  6. Have FUUUUUUN love! I look forward to you oversharing every little detail afterwards, because without you, how would I ever know!???? xx

  7. Yes, I definitely point out stuff before anyone else can pick up on it!! Speaking of check out chicks though, I had a major oversharer yesterday. She asked me how I was, I said tired. I asked her how she was and she told me she had a really bad case of thrush. She made a funny face when she said it and pointed to her downstairs area. Ewww, please, I really didn’t need to know that!!

  8. Bahaha – I tend to overshare too! Things like “I’ve got my period – that’s why my stomach is so Huuugee!!” or “I’m PMSing so I’m shitty and zitty”. Guess what … we are SO gonna meet tomorrow!! What to wear?? Agghh! Tis my first ever bloggy thingy!! See ya then! 😉 Min xo

  9. Oh classic! I tend to overshare when I’m nervous. Like a babbling fool that just keeps going and going and those around me start to cringe from embarrassment for me. Then I go and crawl into a deep, dark, hole and pretend it didn’t happen.

  10. Yes I am!! I tell people all kinds of crap! Enjoy your meet up!

  11. I am so jealous of you meeting up with Janet and Lisa – wish I could join you !!!
    Have the best time and please say hi to all from Me !

  12. You are absolutely right Em! We are all prone to over-sharing, particularly when it comes to belittling ourselves. I often wonder, who the flying fug cares! (Love the expression). Sounds like a great meet up. Have fun! x

  13. Oh have fun at your first meet-up, I’m sure it will be lovely.

  14. Have an awesome time at the meet up and please totally be yourself and overshare so you can report back next week!!

  15. Enjoy your meet-up. I’m sure they’ll be expecting a lot of oversharing!

  16. Oh I wish I was at that meetup! I cannot wait to hear about your oversharing antics there. mwahaha!

  17. Have fun at the over-sharer anonymous meeting (blogger meetup)!

  18. When I am nervous it is game on for me – I pity those poor souls who were in that hospital before my elective c-section – the oversharing coming from my mouth at that moment was not good
    On other occasions, I am quite good!
    Have fun with mum coming over

  19. I’m a massive over-sharer too (but of course you know that already!) I don;t know what it is but I have to explain everything to everyone, even people on the phone. It just blurts out before I can stop it… Have an awesome time at your first blogging catch-up!

  20. I am oversharer. I really used to freak the guys out at work, especially when one asked me about child birth – there was no holding back then!

  21. Yes!!! I am a chronic oversharer!!! No wonder I was drawn to blogging. When I get nervous I just prattle on – I have a feeling I’ll be doing lots of that tomorrow!

    Wow we are going to have a wild old time! Just hope this stupid rain stays away, although the cafe is covered, the play equipment isn’t so that would be a real bummer for the kids.

    About 13 people have RSVP’d (plus about 5 or 6 kids) which is heaps more than I was expecting, just thrilled to bits!!!

    • Thanks for organising the meet-up – it was great – I promise I’ll get to writing about it soon! (slack I know) Here’s to the next one being at night so we can get tidly and over share even more! LOVED meeting you J x

  22. I’m actually pretty tame! I have a friend that does though, and she makes me cack myself every time.

    Over-sharers IRL are totally cool 🙂

  23. I hear lots about this “oversharing” drama. Seriously, if you didn’t overshare – would you be blogging. People blog because they want to tell people things!! Lots of people!!!

  24. Looking forward to oversharing the hell out of tomorrow. YEAH BABY!

  25. I totally get this and do it all the time! It’s like a weird compulsion, I just can’t help myself. I swear random strangers know more about my life than some of my family do! I cat just nod and smile when people in service positions ask me how I am or how my day has been, I gave to tell them exactly what has been happening and how I am feeling and I am sure they just wish I would shut-up. The worst is when I go for a pedicure or eyebrow wax, my poor beautician much grimace every time she sees my name come up in her appointment schedule!

    • I do the same thing, and when I get eyes waxed, I try my best to ask how she is – but then somehow the convo turns back about me! I must say, if I’ve had a shocker day instead of blurting it out I say – You don’t want to know – I have 3 kids under 5 and I’ve been up since 5am 🙂

  26. You are not alone Em ! I have had a few eyes rolled at me for oversharing, total gah moments but I can’t help myself !? The best thing about meeting other bloggers is majority of them are over sharers too so you will feel completely at home 🙂 Hope you have a great time at the meetup and enjoy your mum’s stay xxx

    • Yes that is one of the BEST parts about blogging, the non judgement, well online anyhow, seems a much more accepting community, but maybe that’s because we’re not all talking IRL – food for thought. I had a ball with mum, thanks xx

  27. Oh you and I would get along so well! It took all my self control the other week to not tell everyone at work that I was having a fat day; for no reason whatsoever!!!

  28. We love you because you over share! I’m actually trying to work on being better at just taking the compliment not telling them exactly the opposite!

  29. I am a social nightmare. In thinking of stuff to say, I just talk about any old thing and then feel like a complete noodle. I don’t however tell people my flaws when they are looking at me! Must go wax my chin…..

  30. Yep, totally get this. I have verbal diarrhoea and share stuff that really should be left on the shelf. Oh well, that is me, that is you, what are we to do?

  31. There you go again making me laugh till my stomach hurts. I am such an over sharer that I sometimes think a zipper on my lips is necessary lol at least my family thinks so anyway hahahahah xx
