Hissy Fits & Dummy Spits

Interesting couple of weeks all round. This post was going to be sent from Bali via but due to some issues noted below it wasn’t hence the reason there hasn’t been one for a couple of weeks.

Having to do my FFS post on notes via phone Sucks...FFS

Knowing that I am doing on my phone because I am on holiday....No FFS

Kids have been so excited this week about holiday that jumping out of their skins is an understatement....FFS

Spent all day Saturday helping my oldest build his medieval castle for school project...FFS

Thank god my creative mother was on hand to lend assistance....No FFS

Group workout on Saturday was a tabata circuit which went for an hour followed by 30 minutes of boxing. This caused a couple of dummy spits or tabata tantrums as we called them....FFS

Saturday night we held our trivia night raising money for our bike rides. We raised over $5k..... No FFS

Sunday was Father's Day. I received the usual gifts from the Father's Day stall, new coffee cup from kinder and the big hugs and kisses.....No FFS

Julie went to work and left me with the ferals. Great Father's Day separating them all from punching on as well as having to go shopping.  There were a few dummy spits this day ( from me mostly).....FFS

Decided I needed to buy myself a Father's Day present and bought a 6 pack of beer. Like I needed it.....FFS

Drank the beer and some wine when Julie got home. Very naughty......FFS

Julie bought Aidan his first pair of thongs for our holiday. He won't take them off. Even wore them to bed on Monday night.....FFS

Got to bed at midnight and up at 5:30am to go to airport....FFS

Parked at the Long term car park at airport. Had 3 buses drive past before being picked up.....FFS

Kids were so excited this morning about going to Bali, it was doing my head in....FFS

Dropped wife and kids off at airport before parking car, needed her credit card to park car, meant she had to wait until I got back for a coffee.....FFS

Wife and kids checked in without me due to length of time it took to get from car park to terminal. Now I have to queue up again.....FFS

Kids in the pool at the villa

Arrived in Bali at our villa very tired and kids extremely excited and wanting to do everything straight away…..FFS

Tried to log onto WiFi when we arrived to notify everyone that we had arrived safe, only to find credit for WiFi had run out.  Took manager another 3 hours to get it fixed……FFS

Had a swim with the kids in the pool after checking out the villa, pool guy turned up to check everything and turned filter on, which caused power to shut off……FFS

Called villa manager to notify her power was out, she came around and realised it was safety switch…..No FFS

WiFi was fixed but was that bad that we couldn’t actually send anything via facebook, twitter or Instagram for large portions of the day.  To have a 12 year old not able to use his phone or the 4 year old not able to use iPad was the end of the world…..FFS

Thank god that every bar and café in Bali has free WiFi…..No FFS

This gave me an excuse to have regular visits for Bintang…..No FFS

First of many......

Cleaner for our villa was shite to say the least…..FFS

The house next door to us had chickens and roosters.  Motherf*$@ing rooster and a mate started crowing at 3am the first night for 3 hours……FFS

This continued every night…..FFS

Kids were still on Australian time the first morning so up at 5am and ready for action…..FFS

I told the kids I was going to kill said rooster and cook him, to which Aidan asked me everyday when I was going to do it…..No FFS

Took Julie out for her birthday to WaterBom Park, which we all thoroughly enjoyed and left when the place closed.  Kids had a ball as well…..No FFS

Birthday Girl at Breakfast......

I was able to watch both Carlton finals in our villa via the Australian Network cable channel…..No FFS

Power went out once again in our villa right on dark as I was in the pool with the little ones….FFS

Julie called the manager who was adamant it wasn’t a credit issue as she topped it up when we arrived…..FFS

She had a technician come over and look into it.  Seems there was an issue out at the connection to the power lines, but it only put power out in our villa……FFS

Took the guy 45 minutes to fix it, so we were in the dark, no aircon, wife having a hissy fit because we were staying in Fawlty Towers……FFS

Took kids to the beach for the day, hired some beach chairs, boogie boards and had a ball…..No FFS

Visiting the beach just checking it out

Owen took to the boogie board, loved it, which was a total surprise to both Julie and I……No FFS

Aidan hated it and wouldn’t go on it again after the first time, which shocked us….FFS

Paige got extremely sunburnt, when her rash vest came up a couple of inches, which resulted in blistering and now peeling.  A new experience for her……FFS

We had to leave villa and head to Club Med, so villa manager organised a driver for us…….No FFS

Stupid bitch knew how many of us there were but still managed to get a car that could not fit us all in without little ones sitting on our knees……FFS

This cause Julie to have a mini meltdown, carry on about Fawlty Towers again and have her umpteenth hissy fit of the holiday……FFS

We get to Club Med and all the issues of the last 9 days were forgotten……No FFS

We had forgotten how much we love Club Med and how much we love their kids club……No FFS

Nuff said, this is how we all were at Club Med.

Checked in, signed kids into kids club and headed to the bar for a cocktail……No FFS

Drank far too much on the first day which meant both Julie and I were not functioning very well that evening……FFS

Last day in Bali started with a 30 minute full body massage for $5 out on the beach……No FFS

Getting a massage

Where we had our massage

Flight home was a debacle.  Took us 90 minutes to check in at counter, get through customs and immigration and then rush to get the bus out to the plane.  All with 4 tired, irritable and feral children……FFS

As you can imagine, this was all in a hot airport, which led to a few dummy spits by both Julie and I at said kids…..FFS

We finally got on the plane, delayed a further 30 minutes due to incompetent check in staff holding other passengers up……FFS

Little ones went straight to sleep……No FFS

Julie and I waited to get a beer and a wine before we tried to nod off, we just needed the peace and quiet……No FFS

They didn't have one that said Julie

Jumped on the scales to see that I had put on a total of 6kgs in less than 2 weeks…..FFS

Not stressing about it, had a ball, expected a gain, did nothing over there to prevent it, so now just working my arse off to correct it……NO FFS

Planning next years trip already, but to where?.......No FFS.

What happens when Julie organises transport.


  1. So jealous!! Looks like a fun time despite all the dramas.

  2. Time for another holiday me thinks :)

  3. You need a holiday to recover from the holiday hehehe. Or just another full body massage on the beach.

  4. Ahh Leitchy great post. And love the selfie getting the massage, you rock!
