Haha.. Perhaps when DH leaves me to 'work' really he is just going home to you? LOL!
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY LADIES.
I hope you have a beautiful day.. x
wannaBamumma - I know exactly how you feel when hubby first comes home. As much as im looking forward to him coming home, Im dreading it too. Ive got myself in a good routine with the 3 kids and he will have forgotten how hard it can be to get everyone organised and not just worry about himself. I am in desperate need of a break but fear the first week will just create extra work
Hope everyone is having a lovely Mothers day. Have to say mine has been pretty crap Up at 2am cos my son wet his bed which then woke bub up. Took a while to get both boys back to sleep then bub was up at 6. My daughter gave me a lovely present she made at school then has done nothing but whinge about everything AND Im premenstrual which is really not good then to make me feel like a really crappy mum bub did a forward somersault off our patio onto the driveway. He is fine, not even a bump on his head! I think I was more upset then he was.
Had a great day yesterday though. Went to Agfest, with sheep dog trials, horse shows, farm machinery and heaps of things for the kids to do. Beautiful sunny day too
Dh leaves again today and as usual I'm full of mixed emotions! It's been great to have a full week with him and now we've got 2 weeks then he's home for a month so we can visit his parents in England! Just have to get through this next 2 weeks.....
Does anyone else's family not understand why they do FIFO?? I mean for those who do it by choice.... My family think it's the worst idea ever and they can't seem to understand the positives! It's so frustrating.

wannaB - I hope the next 2 weeks go as smoothly as possible & quickly.
My parents understand the money side if DH's work but nothing else. They think he should always be home for special occasions.. As much as that would be nice, that's not the way the industry works. DH and I are completely ok with FIFO as much as it can completely suck sometimes.
There are people within DH's company who threaten to quit because their wives aren't happy with their going away... They then get thrown a $5000 - $50,000 bonus and they stay till the next time they complain again. I say if you can't handle the requirements of work - FO
oops, the I accidently pressed send on the phone before I was finished. I hate that DH goes away all the time and gets no bonus or thanks in anyway but all these other pathetic people do. I would love for DH to find other job.... Just away from these people.
Hope the next 2 weeks go really fast and are super easy. Not just for you either!lol Means my hubby will be home soon
My family dont really understand it, but going to sea is in my hubby's blood. His dad, unlces, pop etc were all fishermen and would go away for months at a time.
One side of the family do as fil does FIFO too ,my parents tho think I should live where dh works but that's just some idea they have in their head that those towns need ppl to live there to survive blah blah not the case where dh works now.
AFU- dh seems to like his new job quite a few ppl there he has worked with before ,he's on the beach a lot in his photos of him at work lol The phone reception is still bad but he's in a permanent room so he's gonna get his own booster for the Internet and phone. We have Skype as long as he rings early

DH left early this morning, 3 days early.... Big shutdown on and since he is only a few yrs as a qualified fitter he is grabbing the overtime for more experience......9 sleeps to go this will be the longest we have been apart on our whole 10.5 years.
