Dont trust your daughter with your car keys………..

Some of you may remember this post about my 1oyr old son & my car keys…………. Well must say he no longer has bragging rights to being the only person in our family to have done this now!!

We were in town a few months ago & Miss Lankylegs was having a sleep over with a friend. Anyways we were at Bunnings to a sausage sizzle fundraiser for Sir Dreamsalot’s camp. All was going well, selling lots of sausages, drinks & raffle tickets. Then DD’s friends mum turns up to collect the girls off they went to my car to get the bag containing all sorts of crap, essentials for   & return to me to say goodbye. Following conversation ensues:

Me “Where’s my keys”?

DD “ohhh no ”

Me “Yeah sure sure hand the bloody things over.

DD “uummm no Mum I am serious I have locked them in the boot”

Me mutters under breath FFS! “Oh crap ok go on your sleepover I will ring road side assist again!

DD “OK Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Mum xxxx

Me hmmmmm, off I go traipse over to car retrieve phone number from sticker & go through the motions, report car & location operator asks “how will we find you in Bunnings?” Me “easy go to the sausage sizzle out the front!!”

About an hour or so passes & just as we have sold out of snags, & start packing up a bloke rocks up to the sizzle, Me “sorry mate we have sold out of snags, can offer you a cold drink or raffle ticket though 😀 ”

He ” Ahh no thanks I am looking for Tina”

Me “ooohhh that be me, guess your  the bloke who’s gonna break into my car for me then, Ok its over here”

10 minutes later & he is in with the alarm on the car going off & every person in the car park gawking at us, & yes just like last time they were right at the front of the boot amongst other crap in the boot Yep another bit of wire  & yay my keys are retrieved, the alarm is off & paperwork is signed.

I did take great delight in texting all family members about Miss Lankylegs faux pas & Sir Dreamsalot took great delight in  nick naming his sister Boots 2 as he was called Boots for awhile after his turn.

Bloody kids, maybe when they get their own cars  I will be able to return the favour!!! LOL

Dont trust 10yr olds with your car keys!

After our day of shopping yesterday Sir Dreamsalot & myself went out to my Mums house. After the greetings & small talk Sir Dreamsalot asked if he could get his new cricket gear out of my car to show Nan. No probs give him the keys (he is 10 totally capable of unlocking & relocking car) Off he goes & gets his gear shows Nan. More small talk ensues & then I say well we should head for home got all the fruit & vege in the car & want to check on the cats to make sure Koda has used the litter tray & not the lounge again!!
This is where it went pear shaped, dug in my bag……..hmm wheres my keys oh thats right Brayden had them.
Me “Brayden where did you put my keys when you got your cricket gear out”???
He “Ummm I dont know”
we all look on the benches, empty my bag check the rubbish bin with no luck
Me “You didnt put them in the boot while you were getting your stuff out did you & then………….”
He “ummmm yes I think I did “
Me “crap crap crap Mum stop laughing!!!!”
“OK when we bought the car we got roadside assist I will ring RAC & see what they say”

Phone call ensues & RAC have nothing about us on their system & then she says perhaps you got Mitsubishi roadside assist. YES that was it & I am pretty sure there is a sticker on my windscreen. Go check phew yep & there is the 1300 #. Another phone call & these guys know who I am & will send out a service technician within the hour to help!!!!
SMS hubby & give him the low down on whats happening & why I may not be home when he gets home! Refrain from throttling DS

Service man came…………..RAC service man made comment that when I rang RAC they had no idea who I was & he said yeah all the car companys brand name their roadside assist but its still RAC who come out!
He successfully breaks into my car promptly setting off my very loud car alarm much to the dismay of Mums cat! Then I had to get into the boot via the fold down section in the middle of the back seat its not very wide, my boot is jam packed with shopping & I know the keys will be at the front of the boot Proceed to drag my shopping into the back seat via the hole & 2 chairs I had in there still from football Finally I can see the glint of my keys but cant reach them was going to get DS & shove him through the hole but the RAC bloke got a bit of wire instead! Retrieved my keys & off he went. Collected DS said by to Mum & headed home. When we hit town I stopped to check the mail box (at post office no mail delivery here) DS asked if he could do it. NO WAY dont trust you with my keys anymore!!!

Serenading the wildlife

We live in a small country town, & going shooting of vermin on farms is a normal thing to do!!

My son Sir Dreamsalot (9) has never been interested in going out roo shooting with his father until just recently. Last week he went for the first time & then again this weekend. He did say he only went along for the ride not for the shooting!!

So Sat night off they go, hubby, mate, DD & DS kids have earmuffs on to protect their hearing & as always kids forget that even though you cant hear you can be heard 😆

So they find the first roos they are going to shoot, turn the ute off to help with keeping quiet & not spooking them when out of the silence Sir Dreamsalot belts out Rolf Harris’s christmas carol Six White Boomers at the top of his voice!!! Well the roos were spooked & took off at 100mph while hubby & mate just sat & laughed! Miss Lankylegs was trying to get his attention to tell him SSSHHHHHH

After that he managed to stay quiet & the boys got some roos!!! And when they were telling me what had happend Sir Dreamsalot informed me he didnt sing Six White Boomers he sang Two Brown Boomers to the same tune LMAO!! And he knows the song by heart as last year it was their school concert item song & he played Santa!!
