Time for a little catch up [Aug. 10th, 2008|04:49 pm]
but what to say...life as domestic..

A first anniversary....I never thought it would be.  but  its very different being married.

That Sigrid is a gift to me, but she isnt an easy gift by any means.  We have had a very full on month, so much going on, her father still sick and needing care, the usual run of stuff with kids, and forgot our weekly date.  Spats and fights and dramas......that is what happens when life is so busy and so big that you forget nice times with the one you love!!

Anyhow a drive to Mudgee sorted us out, a gorgeous house was the gift of chance ( we got a whole cottage for the price pf a hotel rokm because they had a cancellation) ...so sex in front of wood fire, double size shower, nice places to east, and lovely country to drive though..sigh friends again.  We read though our vows and looked at the pictures, all very sappy and sweet....but bear in mind that we were 1/2 a day late setting off and fought all the way to Lithgow..

Anyhow that my news

... if you wish to post this in your journal, it's been requested that you title it "I'm afraid of __ out of 72 common fears"

If you get more than 30, the inventor strongly recommends some counseling.
If you get more than 20, you’re paranoid.
If you get 10-20, you are normal.
If you get 10 or less, you’re fearless.
People who don’t have any are liars

My others that are not on here are slimy things ( worms, slugs, snails and eggs), eye drops being out in my eyes and electricity.

The term "leslie" or "leslie'd" is applied to a man (usually a friend) who drunkenly prays on and harrasses the young females on night clubs dance floors- It derived from the notable antics of "John Leslie" (Famous childrens tv star).

Usual symptoms of being a "leslie" include extreme drunkeness and perfuse sweating and constant mid arousal. Other lesser symptoms include incoherent speach, sneaking away from mates, not listening to males or reason and failure to maintain eye contact. A "leslie" will typically try to lure the innocent back to the "leslie cave" He may claim to have a "leslie copter", "leslie mobile" or in extreme cases a "Hindinleslie" for the sole purpose of attracting 1 or 2 fat females back to his "leslie cave"

Plain and simple a Leslie is...a total deadbeat mother that NEVER pays their child's support or medical insurance. Most Leslie's are fake blondes (poorly done) jobless, gold-diggers and are hideous pathalogical liars. Some Leslie's are even criminalistic and use their children's and X's social security # for a fraudulent credit lines.

sorry yesterday..... [Feb. 14th, 2008|11:10 pm]
yesterday was a huge moment in Australian history...I am filled with hope after Rudds speech, moved by the tears and the joy of the people who were taken and were apologised too, outraged by Nelsons bloody minded ignorance, inspired by the people who were also there in Canberra turning their backs

What a great day

whats going on? [Feb. 3rd, 2008|08:48 pm]
We had a week in the Cook Islands with all the Herrings/..Sigs mum dad, sisters brother husband niece etc..12 of us,,,17 hour trip each way to get there, a hurricane warning when we got there with wind and big waves. We hired motor scooters and played middle aged bikkie gangs around Rarotonga ( which is the biggest Cook Island at 33km around it)

Now back to madness at work and a possible house move..the boss FH has gone and we get a new boss next week..so that could make life much easier...

The house should exchange tomorrow so we get to move..oh joy

Today Sigrid and I have been married for 6 months..still happy, busy, joyous..I keep being surprised at how much my life changed that day we had coffee, and wondering about that whole thing about how most days life just goes on, and some major changes happen//or do all those little days add up to the big day.
