Hello George...

It has happened.

I am with child.

This is the golden child.  The mother of all children (heh).

The one.

In the event of a fire or other evacuation type emergency, The Feral Threesome best be looking after themselves, because I will be ensuring the safe exit of my most treasured baby.



On Saturday I found myself at Harvey Norman’s End of Financial Year one day sale.

I tried to resist, but I work in the same complex and I showed up to work 40 minutes early on the one single day that Harvey Norman opened early.

It was inevitable.

It was fate.

My inner GPS led me straight to the coffee machines.


While my head was saying “NO NO NO…NoNo…ok maybe…” I was being chatted up by the Jura lady.  The Jura lady touting 4-figure machines of awesome.

I told her that one machine, while gobsmackingly awesome, was the equivalent of a week in Bali with a Nanny.  So as much as I’d love me some Jura, it wasn’t to be.

Then she made me a coffee anyway, since we had bonded over luxe coffee machines and children and how they seem to go hand in hand.

At which point the Harvey Norman ladies took over and pointed me in the direction of the greatly reduced Nespresso.

Without me saying a word.

Without having ever read my blog.

See, fate.

And so for half the RRP, I walked out with the newest addition to the Parental Parody family.

My baby.

My number one.

At least until they make an interchangeable coffee, vodka and wine machine.  With automatically self-filling ice dispenser.

Like a Thermomix for liquids.

 This is my artistic angled shot of the other delectable George of the Nespresso's.
He was kind enough to demonstrate the correct operation of my new baby.

Then he had to take a swim so I offered to hold his towel.


  1. Bet you don't mind that baby waking you up in the morning. :-) x

  2. I almost had a heart attack when I read the first few lines of your blog. I was thinking "hit #1 hubby with a spoon next time he suggests that!". lol. Congratulations on such a lovely addition to your family. :)

    I got a new baby on the weekend too.

    I had to go and rewrite my will to include her.


  4. Oh I know, right?!  Waiting for #1Nana to read the first line and phone to lecture me on contraception - before reading the rest.

  5.  I got all misty eyed when I read your post!  I'm so freaking happy for you.  For some reason I feel all justified and righteous.  Seriously - my excitement for you has eclipsed my excitement over George.  But don't tell him that.  Don't want to upset the golden child.

  6. Lol at naming it George, I just called my little blue one Pixie. I got Harvey's to price match mine as the Good Guys had none in stock ANYWHERE when I wanted one. my fave capsule that came with it was the Cosi. 

  7. oh my gosh! I really thought you were pregnant and that you were going to announce that it was twins! But this is so much can be turned on and off, it makes something yummy to drink, and its the best way to wake up in the morning - to hot yummmy tasting coffee (umm - George!) Better than any thing in the world - and even if it does cost a lot of money at first, in the long term it pays for itself :)
