A Weekend on the Gold Coast.

I have been away this past weekend, up at the Gold Coast in learnament, mainly working out how I can be a better blogger. The truth is that you cannot really blog wrong, but you can blog better.

I got home yesterday and entered the usual war-zone that comes along with my absence. Mr Woog hugged me close, telling me that I am never, ever going away again. So I think he has forgotten that I have booked a girls week away in Bali in November.

You see, it was a Sunday night a few weeks ago,  and I saw this ridiculous deal on the internet. I was sitting on the couch next to my beloved. He was watching some sort of motorbike racing thing.

“Look at this deal!” I said…”Do you mind if I go?”

“Sure…” he replied, his eyes never leaving the screen. CLICKETY CLICK DONE!

He does not read this blog ever. If he did then my problem would be solved. But I will have to come up with a way to remind him soon. Possibly in a post coitus situation.

But anyway, the kids were all chuffed to see me. Chuy was all like WHERE THE FUCK HAVE YOU BEEN?

You see the cat was pissed off, as I had agreed to look after my friends pug dog while they were away. And while I was away. This particular pug is as dim as he is cute. Which is a lot. The dog LOVED Chuy and Chuy DESPISED the dog. So they had to be separated for the dogs own protection…

Anyway, 3 days of overindulging in all areas has left me feeling as fresh as a drunk slug. So, as I tend to do most Mondays, I am looking at this week through a fresh set of eyes. I am going to be as virtuous and as wholesome as if I were the love child of Michelle Bridges and Sarah Wilson.

But before I leave you to go off and make kale chips and drink chlorophyl, I thought I might share with you maybe the greatest invention I have seen for some time.

You see, pugs like their food, and scoff it down without even really giving it a second thought. They will eat anything as well. Polystyrene bubbles, apples, right out of your hand while you are not paying attention. Small stuffed animals. Some clever clogs in the pet industry has come up with a solution.

The bumps are designed to slow down the eating process.

I so could have done with this, during my time on the Goldie…


 Do you start a health kick every Monday?
