What Could Possibly Go Wrong ?

What could possibly go wrong ? … Lol how many times we have watched Top Gear  on Tv  and heard  these words , and how many times have we seen total disaster  happen just after those words were uttered , we have seen it so many times now we just laugh  and  just like the presenters on that show  we now yell ” don’t say that !! ” lol as we do not want the disaster that usually follows said statement . Even the other presenters on the show would look horrified  and  yell if 1 of the others would say it  and they were not expecting it  , it became almost the catch phrase of that show , as it almost always spelled trouble. Trouble was what always seemed to happen on that show anyway , with all the half baked  races and challenges they set up for each other so none of them wanted to invite trouble  by saying what seemed to be  a forerunner of more trouble.

What could possibly go wrong can also be applied  to us , how many times have we decided to go somewhere or do something only to find out it was a disaster ? Probably  too many times I would suspect because let’s face it we do not have everything  we try to do go right for us the first time we try , sometimes  it takes a few goes to get it right . If everything went right first time we would soon be unbearable to live with  as we would become so self centered  that people would not want to associate with us. Failing  a few times , while  it is aggravating  and annoying  it does tend to show us we are not infallible  and we do make mistakes , and mistakes are good for us as we learn from them and get better at what we are doing . ( Well we hope so ..lol )* fingers crossed *

What could possibly go wrong  ? While it is a funny saying now to us who have  seen it so often in a funny show it can have implications to a lot of things , in that if we do not stop and think, and work things out  then everything could go wrong  and usually does. Remember Murphy  and his law ? Making fun of a saying  does not change  the actual meaning of that saying,  so as well as having a giggle at it we should always  try to make sure that nothing can go wrong , that we plan everything out well and truly before we commit to doing anything . Committing  to doing anything before we have checked all possibilities is really just not on , we really need to think things through before we do them , sadly not many people do this and things often do go very wrong , then it is a matter of clean up, sort out , then try again.

What could possibly go wrong ? Lol just about anything  , like imagine you are doing some cooking  and you ask hubby to help and he says yes ok , then he only half listens to what you ask him to do and then you end up with something  you didn’t want , lol a cooking mess grrrr.Also  you could end up with a kitchen that smells of smoke for hours and a fire alarm going off it’s nut . That is the time you make him do all the cleaning up  to teach him a lesson  and to ensure that it does not happen again . Then there maybe a time when you decide you will go somewhere  and meet up but the directions get a bit muddled and you both end up at different places , then have to reorganize  to get together where you both should have been in the first place , lol, don’t laugh   it can happen to you as well as to anyone else  you know ” what could possibly go wrong ? ”

What could possibly go wrong can then as you see be used for a lot of fun or can actually cause a lot of mischief  , it depends on your point of view  , and it depends on how well you organize your life and the things you do . There are just so many ways we can do things that finding which way is the  right way  can be a challenge but if we are careful then we can with a modicum of sense  get things done right. While as  I said we  spent a lot of time watching this  program and having that phrase  burned you might say into our heads  that now we hate to hear anyone say it  , lol, we laugh and say ” Don’t say that !” lol even to this day we still do it  because we did it so often before . Amazing how some things just stick in your head and it only takes 1 phrase to set you off giggling ..lol.

What could possibly go wrong then  is a phrase that has stuck and  I am sure  there is a phrase or 2 that you also have stuck in your heads  too , lol do not deny it , it is 1 thing  that does happen to us all as we sometimes have a memory that is too good and remember things we would be better off not remembering . So having  left that little gem in your minds now  ( hopefully ) lol  I will leave you to think of all the phrases that are stuck in your heads now , and you will think of them now , trust me  ..lol all of them.

Games People Play

Games people play …. No I do not mean the sports people play though that does come into it at a point , I mean the games people play with others that can really , really hurt. First  though let us look at sport, in almost all of the sports you will find players “playing ”  by that I mean for example in soccer 1 of the worst games for this . A player kicks a ball along the ground and gets a tiny bit too close to another player from the opposition team , and then it is on!! Players goes down rolling on the ground screaming  he’s hurt, yeah right . when you look at it 9 1/2  times out of 10 it is all acting player not even marked , like I said soccer is the worst for this , but it has also been  done it rugby , football, tennis  and others as well . My question is why ? Why do they do  it ? Is it for extra money ? To get  some sort of advantage ? Or just because they don’t want to play anymore? Why don’t they just quit and get a real job ? Why keep doing crooked things like this ?

Then there are the games people play with other people’s money , you know the ones , the  crooked lawyers , the crooked stock brokers , the crooked bookmaker , there are so many of them and their 1 goal seems to be to fleece as many people as possible before they get caught . Doing this gets them so much money they are the ones who have all these ” off shore accounts ” . Then there are the ones who run online gambling  and boy  there are a lot of those , how do you know that what they tell you is true ? The answer is you just don’t you have no way of checking up on any of these people online or not they have a system so well set up the average punter has no hope .

Then of course on a different level are people who play you , these are the people who make friends with you , pretend to be able to help you then bring you down and it costs you big money . I know this from personal experience  and now it has led to me not being able to trust anyone very easy any more , I mean how many times do you have to be burned or to loses a lot of money before you become the sort of person who then trusts no one . Coming from this sort of thing makes that person then a person who trusts no one not even family at times and that is just so wrong , but what can you do when you have been burned by someone like this ? Makes living sometimes a bit on the difficult side as you just don’t trust easy anymore , but you do learn to live with it , you do learn to cope and just get on with it . Really it is the only way to go and not let the sods win , that makes them mad because you were able to move on.

Games people play  now what  I really want to know is why ? Why do they do it? What pleasure do they get out of hurting and or ripping off others ? What makes them get to this point ? Have they no feeling at all for the people they are hurting  ? Have they got to the point in their lives when all that matters to them is who they can rip off next ? So what brings a person to start playing these kinds of games ? Guessing here that whatever it is that starts them off  they must be  unable to stop doing it , they must be bereft of normal feelings  and  I must say I feel very sorry for them if this is what they think is a good thing to do .

Trouble is that by the time you realise you have been played you have lost not only time, invested in them , but money , and all confidence in other people , and this is the bit that it is very,very hard to come back from . It is not always just the money that hurts the most it is also that the person you thought was a friend could do this to you , even more hurtful is wondering why they thought you were the 1 to do it to . Why ? What did you ever do to them but be nice to them ? Have never been able to work out why people sink that low that they can even think of doing things like this to others . Anyway I think all we can do is pray and hope we do not come across them in our lives , and do not get hurt by them.

Games people play are so many and so varied it has now become almost impossible to tell when you meet people for the first time , I know for me personally I am now very wary of new people who come into my life . Before you say it yes  I do know that  I am not the only 1 who has been hurt this way , sad thing is that too many others have also been caught out  too and I have no idea what we as a people can do to stop this sort of rot. Respect  is they key to stopping it but where in this day and age does anyone learn  respect ? I will tell you nowhere , it is not even taught in our schools anymore , and if you want proof just look around you at the so called ” next generation ” most of them can’t even dress correctly and what they do wear is disgusting , yet they wonder why rape and violence is so rife. Sad to say I think there is no easy solution as parents these days are not allowed to be parents and so you see now what has happened.

When I was younger I had all the answers, now I am older I am wondering where the heck I put them !

When I offer to wash your back all you have to say is yes or no not who the hell are you and how did you get in here.?

Upside Down

Upside down … This is not my usual blog this is a collaboration between me and my husband Richard , just as the title suggests  things have been turned upside down for us  , right out of the blue . You know 1 of those things you don’t see coming and then wham! Gotcha ! Now we have a whole lot of different challenges to to sort out , I have no doubt we will sort it all but it may take awhile  , now we know what is going on sort of  ..lol.

Right let me explain , I was sitting here just waiting for  Richard to come home from work when at a funny time of the day he texts me and says  ( meet me at the pub we need a drink )  I said back seriously ? He said yes , so off  I went to get dressed and go meet him . As soon as i  got there  I  did  not even wave to friends  or anyone I went right to where he was and said “What’s wrong ?   ”  He then told me he had been retrenched , I could not believe it  , I was devastated  as he loves that job so much , he and 9 others are being retrenched  , they are restructuring … so that means 10 good employees now have no jobs . Along with the jobs goes health cover as well  , and they all have just 2 months left to finish up  and leave.

Seems like  we no longer need worry about replacing the dead freezer  or anything else that might break in the next few months , as we have no idea whatever  where we will be , it will depend on where or if he can get another job  I will attach  his CV  at the bottom of this blog  so if anyone can help that would be great . He already has applied for 4 different jobs in his field he started doing that right away so as not to lose too much time in trying to get another job. We are very hopeful that he will be able to get another job even if it means moving  to another town or state as long as there is a job for him we will go , after all that is what brought us to Sydney in the first place .

Faced with this all the wonderful fun and surprises my hubby and family gave me for my birthday  was just great to take our minds off it for a while , and lovely though that was  we now have to deal with the reality of not knowing just what will happen or where we will end up. Like I said before we are both confident something will turn up  we just have to look and see what comes in , in the way of job offers . Every day  now will be a day of looking and searching to see what is available  and if we can do anything about any of them …                             .Rick’s CV

Procrastinators ….. How many times will a procrastinator procrastinate  before you threaten to knock his block off ? The answer is too many times …lol…being married to a procrastinator I know what I am talking about , there have been so many times that I have wanted to just knock his block off , sorry dear but you know  I  am right .  I always groan when I know  I have to wait for him to do something  , as  I know it will never ever get done when you first ask . That is why if something needs to be done  I ask long before it really needs to be done as much as  I can , knowing full well it will not get done right away this is about the only way I can handle it . The other way of course is just to wait till he has put it off at least twice then just give up and go do it myself , lol, that way he don’t get a kick up the butt even though he deserves it .

Procrastinators as good? bad ? lol  as the 1 I live with can really make you wonder why you even bother , why you do not just do it yourself anyway and save yourself a lot of  grief . Also makes you wonder sometimes why you are still with them , trouble is there are just some things , too many if you ask me that you simply just cannot do yourself , while I try not to have to ask there are times when you just have to . I have tried for 15 years now , lol yes 15 , to get him to see that it is way easier to just do it then you can relax and not have to worry about it after that , that doing it right away  get’s all problems solved * sigh *  it has not worked yet ..lol apart from actually kicking his butt  I have no idea  what to do with him.( open to suggestions lol ) 15 years and counting..lol

Procrastinators this bad  really are hard to live with at times , and it does not matter how much you love them , this can really make your blood boil trust me , there have been times when I have just walked away rather than get too mad at him as  I really do love him or would not be still here after all these years. Yes  I am the first to realise there are times when putting off doing something has benefits , but there are not as many of those as he would like me to believe , it is still better to just go and get it done , then you have nothing more to worry about and you can relax. They tell you love conquers all  and mostly I do believe this but there are times when it takes all self control not to just get mad at him  and start nagging , and that is something  I really refuse to do as  it is not good for either of you . So it must be very important if I ever do stoop to nagging.

Procrastinators  do seem to me to live in an alternate universe I think as they just don’t get it that putting everything and everyone at times off till a later time, and they do not get it through what passes for a brain that it make those that love them just so mad at them , I am sure if they bothered to think about it they might see what I am saying here. Getting things done when they first need doing is something I have always done , for instance when we have a meal , as soon as we are finished  I go do the dishes , there is no way I want a pile of dishes looking at me for hours on end , and also knowing that at some point I have to do it  so why not just get it done ?

Procrastinators  just in case you think  I am saying they are all male  I am not they are women as well as men , women are just as good at putting things off as men have no doubt of that . Women also make their partners very angry  at times because they do not get things done , they also can  be just as annoying  and cause just as much agro. What I want to know is where/when/how  do people decide to become procrastinators  ? What makes them suddenly decide to do this ? Surely they realise after  a while that it is not a good thing  to be , so why do they not change and start to improve ? I know  I would love hubby to stop doing it so much , it really does make me mad ..lol. sheesh just as well I love him ….

Procrastinators are they born like that or do they become that way ? If they become that way then what is it that makes them become that way  ? Someone please tell me so maybe , just maybe  I can fix my 1 , lol, even though I love him as he is mostly this 1 thing drives me to distraction . How soon in life do they start doing this ? When does a child , yes a child  suddenly decide to become a procrastinator  like it was some sort of necessary need in life ? What time in life do they sit and think hey I am going to be a procrastinator  it is my life’s dream to be 1 and  i will be 1 no matter what  ? Lol would love to really know what makes them that way and if there is a way to fix it in them without going to jail …lol. .. lol now  I must finish this and go get some things done .

I’m never naughty… Just mischievously creative!  I like being me!!!  XXX


I can’t go anywhere in my house without somebody recognizing me….



Balls ..

Balls …lol and no before you even think it not those balls ok ? Get your heads above your navel for a change. Sheeesh I don’t know , some people …….. no hope for them  lol.

Balls  come in all sizes and shapes and colours  and can be used for so many things  they are used for work and for play and we should  look after them always  …lol now stoppit !!!  Well there  are the ones used to play football , ones used to play soccer , ones used to play tennis , ones used to play golf , we even use them to bet on in lotto , see there are just so many ways we use balls or ball shaped things that we have need of  that I thought it was time  I pointed out just how many times we use them and how  we should be looking after them  . Like bowling balls if we don’t use them the right way they are  a menace …lol just like men and kids …so the correct way of using balls is essential to know for everyone , trust me on this .. We really do need to know how  to look after our balls that we use all the time as we would not want to be without them. ..giggles ..

Balls as  I said are a lot like kids and men , if they work the way they are supposed to think  how much easier our lives would be . Just think about it , you ask your hubby to do something and either 1 or 2 things happens , 1. he does it and all goes well or 2. he mucks around till you do it yourself  and this is what usually happens when dealing with men , lol , sheeesh  they never learn. Balls are also like kids  , dealing with kids is also as annoying because they are exactly like men in how they react but with kids you often also get the added bonus of crying, foot stamping, slamming doors , or if you are real lucky all 3 at once …sheeesh again ..lol Then again men can be like that too sometimes lol.

Balls if used wrong when playing …no not that ..stoppit !! lol When you bowl a ball wrong it goes down the gutter or even into the next lane  and might even hurt someone , so you have to be careful as also bowling balls are very heavy . Balls used for golf if used wrongly can also do a lot of damage , they can hit someone , go through a window  , or just get lost in the woods. Balls used in tennis are also ones to be careful of  as they too can hit someone , just saw an umpire  in The Australian Open get clobbered by 1 and luckily it didn’t hurt him and  he just had a good giggle .  Balls used for  football  too , and I mean real football not rugby, not soccer  , can hurt if you get hit with 1 that has been kicked hard enough at you so best not to be in the road of those , lol, stand at the bar it is unlikely they will be able to reach you there …

Balls that are used for lotto cannot hurt you physically  but they sure can hurt your hip pocket if you are silly enough to play with those balls  they can cost  you a lot of money so again best to leave them alone . Have you any idea what the odds are on those balls anyway  ? The odds are millions to 1 so not worth wasting money on . Balls used in playing snooker can also be a worry as if you can play well then they don’t hurt you but if you don’t you get beat , and you get beat more if you bet on the game , much more fun to just play for fun. Though having said that snooker balls are very hard  and if someone hits 1 too hard and it bounces off the table then that can hurt  lol .

Balls then just like men and kids  can be useful but are mostly a pain in the posterior , lol , think about it there is not a lot of difference between the lot  is there  ? Balls can be fun , men can be fun, even kids can be fun but all 3 can be a right pain if they screw up or are screwed up . Balls at least can be fixed or traded in or  replaced  but try doing that with a husband or any kids huh ? lol  you cant  you are stuck with what you have ,someone  who is a right pain at times  but like balls can be a lot of fun…Stoppit!!! lol I  would love to know just how many of you kept thinking of the wrong balls every time  I mention them , go on be truthful lol …I can count on the fingers of no hands how many did not think of the wrong balls every time …lol


The human body contains enough bones to make a skeleton…

“Mom, I’m hungry.”“Hi, Hungry. I’m Mom.”
“Mom, I’m serious.”“I thought you were Hungry?”
“Are you kidding me?”“Nope, I’m Mom.”..

My female intuition is so highly developed that I know when my husband is wrong even before he has said anything…

First Words

First words  … Now  I am not talking about  a babies  first words cute as they are  , they are usually  mumma  or dadda,  that is the usual and we love it when they first talk . Let’s  face it we encourage them to talk we nudge them and nudge them to talk , then what happens  ? Lol they start to talk and then we spend the rest of the time they live with us before they get married  …yes you guessed it  …lol  we tell them to shut up !! After all the time we wasted getting them to talk ..lol they do what they are told ..probably the only time they do as they are told , and then we  tell them to shut up … sheesh poor babies just cannot win can they  ? First we tell them 1 thing then we tell them another when they do it  , lol, this is mostly why after that  they ignore us , but we asked for it , so in all we tell them to talk and walk and when they do , they just get told  to sit down and shut up , lol, don’t seem right does it ?

First words I really mean are the first words we utter  when we first wake up, while we are still lying in bed  with or without a hubby beside you . What are your first words to your hubby or  your kids ? Mine are always the same I say to hubby ” love you baby ”  and snuggle up  close , his response  is  ” love you too sexy  ”  and we cuddle more . We have been doing this now for years and we hope to keep doing it for years to come , we love each other and hopefully always will . We just find it a really great way  to start the day , as you never know what a day will bring it is just great to start it off with loving words if you can , starts the day with a good positive . This works so well I wish everyone would start their day with loving words and cuddles and what a difference  the world would be then so much nicer .

First words when we meet people for the first time too can make a big difference to how a possible new friendship might evolve , and as  I say begin as you mean to go on . For me it is always  honesty I never say anything  that is anything but honest as it hurts too much . First words have power that we do not realise  and as soon  as we realise  that  the better we will be , if we watch our words then we will not have too much  trouble  it is the spur of the moment  words , the words said in anger , they are the words  that do all the damage . Too many people just open their mouths  and just let fly anything without  even considering  what those words might do to someone else . Once those angry and hurtful words are out they cannot be taken back and can cause irreparable damage to those who we say them to.

First words  said when we first meet a prospective  partner  are the ones we should watch the most if we do not want to spoil  any chance of a future , this being said , lol what I did to my hubby when he first spoke to me  does not count ..lol.. Telling him where to go and what to do with himself at the time seemed the right thing to do for me at the time , but as usual what man ever does what he is told ? lol He sure didn’t  and 15 years later we are still in love still together  and we both couldn’t be happier . Normally what I said to him and how long I said it for would put paid to any chance of a relationship  , but then what do we know about being normal  ?? lol Someone called me normal once  , never been so insulted in all my life ….sheesh …lol

First words count in so many situations I am sure you can think of a lot too  , like the first time you hear a teacher talk to you  , or a nurse , or a doctor , or a police man , or a firefighter , all these people who work quite often 24/7 to keep us safe  , the first words they  say can be life saving , and then of course there are the life savers , but  I am sure you get my drift . First  words said in anger make you edgy  and unable to trust the person  saying them , but first words said with a giggle or in love make you relax  and make the whole day brighter for all concerned . The only time my first words to someone  I don’t know  is weird is if they say something  I just do not understand , then  i will say to them ” yeah I had 1 of them but the wheels fell off ” lol means I have no idea what you just said …Please Explain …Giggles …

First words then as you see can make such an impact  on everyone we see and have interaction with  so should we not try a little harder to make those first words  we utter  nice ones ? World would be a lot better place  if  a lot more people tried to make the words they say  a lot nicer , and a lot more friendly , and a lot more people would not be as stressed  as they are today and that would be just great . I know it is a long shot but hey I can hope can’t i ? We all must have some sort of hope if we are to get on in a better frame of mind .

The more I learn, the more I learn, how much I have to learn….

I am great at multitasking. I can be mad at my husband for five different things at the same time….

Loose Wires

Loose wires … Now this could be about people who seem to have loose wires or actual loose wires on something , lol, but for now let’s just think about real loose wires , those ones that when they let go can cause all sorts of problems , yes  i know people with loose wires cause all sorts of trouble too but not them this time . Look at a computer when it gets loose wires and no not the nitwit using it  but the actual computer , think about it , you are sitting there doing whatever , then the damn thing throws a hissy fit and all of a sudden you get the lovely  BSOD  or for the uninitiated  the blue screen of death , and recovering  from that takes a very long time if you can recover it from there .

Loose  wires also can cause havoc in a car , you  are driving  along then all of a sudden something goes snap! then you lose  control as things go  haywire , then you know it is going to cost you big money to fix it up . Those same wires  can also cause mayhem  if they make the traffic lights  go mad  , nothing worse than the traffic build up  that can result from this happening , you can be stuck there for ages just trying to get going without hitting another car , very frustrating to all caught up in it . Loose wires in washing machines too is a right pain  you can end up with water all over the floor , nothing getting washed or the lid stays locked down  or the spinner won’t spin , so many things can go wrong with washing machines .

Loose wires also can be a pest when you are on the phone , by this  I mean the landline ones  that some still have , also the lines that connect all our internet  and TV’s  if they go wrong  then it is almost impossible to see or hear them , very annoying for sure . When you are recording something and the loose wire stops the recording or makes it all scratchy , trouble is by the time you find out you have lost the recording . Electric appliances  too are a right pain if they get loose wires and can also be very dangerous  if for example a toaster blows up because of a loose wire , you could end up having the house burn down . Loose wires be they in things or in people are big worry they can disrupt your life at any given moment and there is not 1 single thing  you can do about it  and that is what makes it a real pest .

Loose wires  then can happen at anytime to anyone or anything and no matter how hard you try , or how careful you are  these things just happen they are no one’s fault , but it is surprising  how many people feel it is their fault and they should have known better , but how can you plan for something so random ? Random things like this can never be anyone’s fault , I mean is it your fault if you get robbed when you did nothing  wrong ? Some people even are silly enough to tell you that you should  have budgeted  better , but please tell me how you plan for a robbery you have no idea is going to happen ? So as with all loose wires we just have to handle things as well as we can , pull up our big girl’s panties as the saying goes and get on with things and keep going forward.

Loose wires can and do happen all the time all we need to do is learn to cope with them and try to put things right again as soon as we can , they are nobodies  fault they are just 1 of the things that happen in life , like a lot of things  that happen. All we can do is our best and if some people think that is not good enough then that is their problem and not ours . Loose wires are here to stay as they always have been I just think now more than ever we need to be aware of them  and just sort them out and  get on with things and not blame  anyone else for them , accept they can just happen to anyone at anytime and move on with life. Personally I hate loose wires have had more than enough of them but as usual I will not let them get to me  , I will just get on with things as  I do.

My boss asked me, “do you believe in life after death and the supernatural?”
“Yes, I think so,” I replied.
“I thought you would,” he said. “Yesterday after you left to go to your grandmother’s funeral, she phoned up to talk to you…”

My husband wears the pants in my house… Wish he would leave my wardrobe alone.
