Why don’t Aussies have thanksgiving?!


So there’s a few big things that I believe are so so important in life:

*keep ourselves happy – find the positives in any given situation (as hard as that may be sometimes!). Its not all doom and gloom! I heard a great quote once;

If you don’t like something, change it.
If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.

Focusing on negatives all the time is too tiring, be kind to the mind!

*keep ourselves entertained and amused – don’t take life so seriously, laugh and be ridiculous without caring so much! Having good friends, little to no shame and stepping outside your comfort zone will definitely help πŸ˜› Don’t just sit at home and be bored everyday.

*help others when we can – its the old trick of karma, you only deserve good things in life if you are good to others πŸ™‚ so don’t just think of yourself and do things for you (although that is super important too) but do things for others too. Linux fans might already know this one;


*appreciate the little things as well as the big – ok yeah you win lotto and are excited but guess what? We all win lotto everyday. We wake up alive. Pretty nice huh? πŸ™‚ See, money buys you things but doesn’t do shit if you’re not alive first.

So I guess today (or yesterday? Timezone confusion!) is about the fourth one. Happy thanksgiving folks!


Here’s what I’m thankful for:
*good friends and family
*a lovely supportive community on WordPress that cracks me up, teaches me new things and stirs my loins
*somehow surviving in a world where I never have money and everything is expensive
*being alive in a day and age where I can be who I want and not give a shit what anyone thinks (I don’t think I would have survived in the 50’s! Or probably any time before that either!)

And what I like to think are pretty obvious;
*sex toys
*the smell of rain on a hot road
*the colour green. And blue. They’re pretty rad
*hair dye (post coming on this shortly..)
*slippers/ugg boots
*flirtatious personalities (lookin at you jblondie haha!)
*the internet
*the feeling of my bare feet on grass
*magical treasure boxes of awesomeness aka vaginas
*auto correct getting shit wrong (last night instead of telling sharn I’m awkwardly retarded, I told her I’m awkwardly breastfed! Cue the cackling and google images.. LOL)

Yep I think I covered all bases there. Thanks life!

Ps. Because I’m still giggling (and helping you tick off the second thing on my list) here’s our favourite ‘awkwardly breastfed’ pictures:

Life loves to set me up for its own entertainment. But instead of me hiding these awkward moments, I plan on sharing them for my own (and possibly your) amusement. Now who's laughing, life?

  1. I like that quote at the top a lot – someone said to me once that I can’t change someone else’s behaviour but I can change how I respond to it. It helped me in my marriage and subsequent relationship – and that quote made me think about that.

    I loved your and JB’s exchange on that other site – it made me smile in an otherwise dull and crappy day.

    thank you xoxo
    your potentially future groping buddy πŸ˜‰

  2. Lololz!

    Our conversations kill me. I died laughing last night.

    So true on all points! Happy gobble gobble day πŸ˜‰


    • Mmmm gobbling…!
      Happy disgusting-looking-bird day! They’re so ugly but so awesome. I totally want one as a pet. I tried to convince bf a while ago and he goes “you know they get to like 45kg don’t you?” I’m all WTFFFFF!! So ok, its now delayed to when I settle at a farm. Otherwise ill have to sit it in the car and put a seatbelt on it like a large child.
      Ramblinggggg! Xx

  3. Lovely post!

    Btw, I love the pics of breastfeeding. Those tender moments that Savannah had with our babies are etched in my memory. I take some pics and we are beside ourselves that we can’t find them.

  4. I’m also a fan of rain on hot roads and the color green. I think I’ll pour myself another glass of wine in Thankfulness for being a glutton filled American and having a Thanksgiving to celebrate. Happy Turkey Day from one of your favorite Americans! ❀

  5. Ha, you said colour. Weirdo…

    Kidding,love you!
