An update on my Dad’s love life

This site may as well be called Dad’s love life, as majority of what I’ve written is about it.

I was taking in the bins, and he pulled out of the driveway with a new woman I’ve never seen. How the hell has he got a new woman after breaking up with a woman he was meant to marry less than 2 weeks ago!

After receiving a box in the mail, written “another JK abandoned conquest,” you would have thought he would have taken a bit of a break from women by now.

“This is a strange way to meet you” she stated.
“Yes it is” I replied.  I was still in shock, and trying to figure out if I was seeing things. Was it just my housemate Katie? No it wasn’t.

At least this one speaks English. The ex, ex, ex couldn’t.


Dad’s not getting married anymore

So Dad came to his senses, and realised the woman he proposed to within 2 weeks was not the woman he wanted to be with.
‘But I thought she was the same person as 25 years ago’.
Well that’s just silly isn’t it.

I guess I will not be getting step brothers anymore. But maybe I will be getting a step sister, since he’s planned a trip to visit his ex, ex girlfriend in Switzerland.

Why does my Dad’s love life have 100 times more action than my own? In the time he’s had like five girlfriends, I’ve literally had one boyfriend. That ended like a year ago.

You always know when Dad has a new girlfriend – he’s learning a new language. There’s been Japanese, French, and I couldn’t work out if the South American woman was one too.

Guess I’ll wait and see which language he learns next.

My Mum is strange

My Mum is that weird character in every movie, just a real life person. She’s the Professor Trelawney in Harry Potter. The female Edward Scissorhands. The non murderous, less intelligent Hannibal Lecter.

She quit her job, which is fine. But then proceeded to announce her plan of creating a song for the cats at the RSPCA, so she could become a one hit wonder on youtube, and the RSPCA would pay her to be on their TV show.

You may think she has hit rock bottom. You may think she has a mental disorder. I don’t know what you may think. But this is my Mum, she is just strange.

She told me that if you put the aircon on in the car, and wind the windows open that the car would explode. She told the pharmacist to explain to me why taking too many antibiotics would cause me to die during surgery. She told me to eat chicken because swimmers such as Ian Thorpe do. She told me that if I did not go to the toilet every hour my bladder would explode. She performed to me a dance of how many different ways she could wear her sarong in 4 minutes. She tickled my friend when she was doing a handstand.

My Mum is strange. But she’s my Mum.

Dad’s getting married

My dad proposed to a woman within 2 weeks. Desperate much? Or was it ‘fate’ all along. For all we know they could have been star crossed lovers and destined to be together from the beginning. They did go out 25 years ago.

I just met her last week. Not what I expected. Quite sarcastic and speaks in a high pitched voice when telling a joke. Didn’t fill the awkward silences with questions, instead called Snowpea’s name over and over again. Not even my cat was the least bit curious.

Had a nightmare about their marriage last night. I objected in that bit where people object in the movie scene. I don’t even know why I’m so skeptical and don’t like the situation. Whatever makes him happy right? Oh, and I’m getting 2 brothers so I guess I’ll be an older sister.

I forgot to mention, the revelation of the proposal to the unknown soon to be step woman person happened out of the blue on the train home in Japan.
