What the hell am I doing writing a blog? I don’t even understand the bloody things and now I’m running one. What does “blog” even mean anyway? It sounds like something you would try and remove from your toliet…
So why Polythene Pram? Well, I guess it kind of sums me up. It draws up images of a cheap, functional, model for mobilising children from one place to another and for most of the day I feel the same. I’m certainly not one of these polished, smiley “yummy mummies” (who ever invented that phrase should be shot immediately, no reprieve) – that keeps blogs on how wonderful childbirth is, discuss the delights of pregnancy and dish out tips on how to be a better mum.
Also, for many years I did actually believe that Lennon, on some LSD fuelled mission, was singing about a buggy.
So this will be my blog, my account on life as a skint, frustrated, bad tempered mum of two….lets see how well I get on.
