Oh Yeah and Hell No – French Bulldogs and Patrick Swayze.

Oh Yeah!

* French bulldogs. They are the most ridiculous looking dogs. They make me so happy. They’re the perfect mix of bullshit cute and perpetually grumpy. Love.

* Doing a massive clean out of our little house. It’s like a hotel room. I’m almost afraid to live in it now.

* Little kids twitching involuntarily to music.

* Homemade pancakes for lunch on the weekend.

* The picture I have of my niece on my phone wallpaper. She’s wearing my hat upside down and laughing like it’s the funniest shit in the world. She’s a comic genius this kid.

* Really awesome whistlers. I was in a shop yesterday and this guy was so skilled it sounded like he was harmonizing with himself. Awesome.

* Dirty Dancing being on TV. I’ve seen it easily 50 times and I own it on DVD but catching it on TV is always that bit extra special.

* Making Fat Mum Slim’s Snickers layer cake that she made for Zoe Foster’s wedding. It. Was. Amazing. This cake will ruin any diet you’re on or any diet you’ve ever been on. That liver cleanse you did in 2001? Yep. This cake just annihilated it. Totally worth it though.

* Mr Smaggle talking in his sleep. ‘DEWEY DECIMAL SYSTEM!!!!!’. I’m not even kidding. He actually said that. What a weirdo.

Hell No!

* Being on hold. RAGE!

* Our little cat friend from next door not visiting anymore. Mr Smaggle is devastated.

What are your oh yes and hell no moments from the week?


Carly is the founding editor of Smaggle which launched in 2007 back when blogging was weird. She has appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Cosmopolitan and Cleo magazines. Hoop earrings are totally her thing and she almost got run over by Myf Warhurst while out jogging one day.

    My son, 6, who is in my opinion, a complete little dude, can whistle like a bird. Totally self-taught, we go places and he whistles along and everyone is like “who let that bird in, where is it!!!” Kills me everytime

    yeah: a three hour afternoon nap. That sounds super lame, but my three month old baby finally slept so I did too! Circadian rhythms seriously dysfunctional of late, so I am understandably chuffed. Hell no: my nap ran into overtime and I missed my other kids’ school bus. (Relax, they made it home on foot)

    Hell No – Gastro haunting my house and 3 kids for nearly 4 weeks – my poor middle child is skin and bones.

    Oh Yeah – Gastro is finally gone.

    Surprised husband by booking a hotel over the road from his office so he could duck over for a quicky in the afternoon, then we had a lovely evening at crown where we dropped $50 on the roulette tables and walked out with $100 in our pocket.!!
