Well THAT was hell

Need a laugh?

I do.

Yesterday was a hard slog. Stressful, long and tiring.

I started work at 6am, battled through the day, missed The Melbourne Cup (but wrote about it), picked the kids up from school at 3pm, dropped the eldest to art class at 3.30pm, drove to the shops for a birthday gift for my nephew, got some groceries, went to Bunnings for more fake grass for the youngest’s fantasy bedroom, picked the eldest up from art class, made fish and chips for dinner, took the kids to the local creek for water for their new tadpoles, cleaned the mess up after the kids spilled the creek water all over the dining table and floor, packed the dishwasher, made pesto pasta for everyone’s lunch today …

All my own doing, but that’s not going to stop me complaining about the brutality.

So it was a breath of fresh air to discover a Facebook page called “Man who has it all.”

It features “Top tips for men juggling a successful career and fatherhood.”

The tips are offered in meme form.

For example …



Don’t you love it?

I think it’s heaven.

Unlike my yesterday, which was hell.

Song of the day: Eurogliders “Heaven (must be there)”

  1. Hmmmmm surely it is a pisstake, but then perhaps men are taking the piss out of women and that we think it is all too hard. When in fact we know that the juggle is real and bloody hard.

    • This ‘man’ thinks it may be a pisstake, but there is some truth to it all which is why we aren’t sure. I don’t want a pat on the back but I have spent my life trying to be an equal parent. I don’t travel much – my partner does – I do most of the cooking, make the kids their lunch and make her coffee every morning to wake her up. I trade my career for hers – of course believing I might have had a better one…However, I like to drink, I look at Internet porn, I look forward to the kids growing up and leaving home, and a bunch of other ‘male’ things. I don’t go to the doctor enough, I think I can do everything and that I’m right most of the time, and I get grumpy when someone points out I’m wrong…
      Am I a man who has it all?

      • I am very thankful to know more men with your attitude that the ones presumably being poked fun at in the memes. I don’t think any man or woman “has it all” though! And if they do life gets very boring.

  2. Hi Alana, I wouldn’t normally do this but I got this email in my inbox and i know how much you and your girls like Dr Who – there is a 48hr sale at an Australian company called Black Milk and I think you can’t really go past the darlek dress…. I have some of their Star Wars tights and I love them.
    http://blackmilkclothing.com/ Go to collections and then Dr Who.

    Sorry to post this here but I couldn’t find a contact email address. 🙂
