Things I Know #82- 2x2=4

 Bloody awesome idea, take note all schools everywhere!!  Year 1 maths is hard!!  Those pesky 2 time tables!!

 Sleep, sweet sweet sleep!!  What I wouldn't give for sleep.  The blissful uninterrupted restful sleep in until some sinful time like 9am, sleep!!

Yes, yes it is!!

I am so on to you WSFM 101.7 and your cropping of songs.  Walking in Memphis was a prime example today.  Cut it out, just play the whole damn song.
Gawd I miss the cd player in my car, without it I am turning into a cranky old woman!!

Bonus song of the week from way back in 1994!! "We could go to Mexico. You the cat and me."  Best song lyrics ever!!

Bonus quote for this week is one I am living by!!

Wordless Wednesday- Halloween funnies 2015

I must confess I/we don't do Halloween.

No offense to anyone who does though!!

At this time of the year and in the lead up to xmas I really do not have the mental capacity!!

I do however love all the funny memes that pop up, here are some of my faves from this year-

 Love this one My Little Drummer Boys shared on facebook.

I know this is so politically incorrect but it made me giggle!!

Some inspiration from Mums Take Five!!

 This was last year when then kindy kid (now year 1 kid) got his face painted at the god awful schools carnival thingy!!  

I still have my little friend from last year!!  

This still freaks me out!! One of the best video clips ever though!!  Very strange disclaimer at the start too, kind of a little contridictory!!

Linking up with Kirsty for I must Confess, Alicia my favourite Hen for #openslather and My Little Drummer Boys for Wordless Wednesday because I am great at multi tasking!!

Things I Know #80- Sailing

 Thanks to Née Say for sharing this picture which sums me up completely!!

The online world exploded again last night, funnily enough I witnessed the start of it (quite literally because I did not have control of the remote) and really wish I was in the dark.  No idea what I am talking about?  Good for you, if you do know what I am talking about isn't it a crap situation for all involved.

So here is a funny thing because there is too much crap in life.
I love when World of Puns pops up in my newsfeed.

Lastly song of the week is some good old fashioned Rod.  While driving in the car yesterday I cracked up when I looked in the rear vision mirror and the boys were all swaying to this song!! I love how they love a broad range of music!!

Ps don't forget to click here to enter to win a $50 Christmas Kingdom voucher!!

Christmas Kingdom Review and Giveaway

I have to admit I have dreams of having the beautifully decorated Christmas house.  You know the ones that are straight out of a magazine.  With the picture perfect tree, the perfectly placed decorations and maybe something extra cute like a train set.

Then I snap back into reality and wake up to myself because for the next few years my decorating dream is exactly that, a dream!!

Three small children and pets are not a good combo when it comes to having anything nice let alone a perfectly decorated house!!

One day though the tree in the video will be mine!!

For now I am happy to let the kids "decorate" the tree.  The last couple of years they have done it all on their own.  They have done an outstanding job.  I think the end result represents us to a tee.  I love how they managed to put all our decorations on one quarter of the tree and then they got bored so just chucked the tinsel on top!!

 This was the tree on Christmas eve last year.  It could not look any sadder if it tried!!  It had done well to survive  as long as it did!!

It would appear I need some new pretties for my tree so I am so glad that the good people at Christmas Kingdom have offered to help me out by generously giving me a $50 voucher to spend at their on line store.

I have been like a kid in a candy shop trawling through looking at all the cute things they sell!!  I have however narrowed my list down to a few things!!  It hasn't been easy let me tell you!!  They have a great range of all things Christmas.

I am loving thiese tutorial clips, they are inspiring me tp be a little more creative this year.  I am definitely going to be giving this kids wreath a go, such a simple idea!! There are a few more similar clips here on the YouTube channel.

The Christmas Kingdom website has totally won me over!!  It is simple and easy to browse through and anytime I do not have to leave my house to buy things is always a bonus!!  I think the range of products is fantastic, just not enough penguins though!!

They do have a couple of stores in Victoria that you can visit (probably a good thing I do not live anywhere near them!!), the store details are on the website.

Now for the awesome part- one of you lucky readers can win yourselves your very own $50 voucher to spend on some goodies from the Christmas Kingdom on line shop.

Simply leave a comment here or over on the pinned post on my facebook page telling me what you would buy if the $50 was all yours!!  Tell me a story, make me laugh, choose the most expensive thing.  The more creative answer the better!!  

Entries open 1200am 10/10/15 and close 1200am 24/10/15.  The competition will be judged by a secret judge and the winner announced 25/10/15.  Australian residents only.

I had a lot of fun with this review, thanks Christmas Kingdom!!  Now to sit back and wait until my goodies turn up in the post!!  I will be sure to share with you all what I ended up choosing!!

Things I Know #78- My week in Facey posts

Facebook will begin stealing your undergarments at midnight tonight if you don't copy & paste this message in the next hour, forward it to everyone in your mailing list, print a hard copy for your grandmother & call your third grade teacher. This is real. I got the message first hand from Elvis who was having lunch with Bigfoot, while riding the Loch Ness monster. It was even on the inside back cover of every tabloid in the grocery store checkout line. Not only will Facebook start charging you tomorrow, they are also going to bill your credit card for the past 3 years of services. Luckily, each person who copies & pastes this status will receive a FREE unicorn in the mail tomorrow.
However, if you don't repost this status, Facebook code has been set up to automatically set your computer on fire & harm an innocent bunny in the forest! It's all true, it was on the news! It's official! Facebook users will believe anything their friends copy & paste into their status.

Thanks Spoon Shortage for the facey giggles

Total crack up!!  Gawd some people are gullible!!

Funniest thing ever!! Gawd help me while I adjust to the changing of the time!!

So excited for this!!

Keeping with the supernatural theme!!

Who commissions these movies, stop now please for the love of all that is holy!!  Fyi this is out after Christmas!!

Throwing it back this week 17 years with some classic Vengaboys.  Yes that animated woman has oversized bazoongas!!
