The Working Mum – A pictoral tribute

Buy

Are your office colleagues under 5? Have you arrived at work with spew on your shirt? Does your shop open for business when the rest of the house is asleep? If you answered yes, you’re a working Mum and this pictorial tribute is just for you!

Thanks for trying Shutterstock but this is NOT what working from home with children in the house looks like. The child does NOT sit and wait patiently and the Mum does NOT sit at a completely uncluttered table

  • Oh The Mayfair. The beautiful Mayfair. You luxurious, 5 star, stylish, comfortable, splurgy little treat you. I was lucky enough to spend a night here with one of my besties, away from the kids, to catch up, relax and refresh and it certainly did the job! Ideal location to explore the city.......or not! The Mayfair is located right in the heart of the city, on King William Rd at the entrance to Hindley St. It makes a great base for a city break. Walking distance to everywhere in the city you can stroll to dinner, explore the Riverbank, wander upstairs to the popular HENNESSY Rooftop Bar for some rooftop drinks or just pop over the road to Haighs for some supplies and hang in the hotel, because once you check in....it's very hard to leave! HENNESSY Rooftop Bar at The Mayfair Hotel The beautiful old heritage listed building has been renovated with no expense spared. There are 170 rooms that are all super stylish and the beds......just take my word for it, you'll sleep UNlike a baby, you'll sleep all night because they are SO comfy! Even the showers are luxurious. Soft, fluffy bathrobes, L'Occitane products to use, a shower…

  • I recently had the cheering, sobbing, singing, dancing, cry laughing pleasure of seeing Em Rusciano in her latest show "Em Rusicano is not a diva." The whole show was bloody fantastic, but one of the main things that stuck with me is Em's point that "You're a PERSON first, and a MUM second." Em recently copped a whole lot of flack on social media for going to see Madonna not once, but twice. SHOCK HORROR! How dare she have a life and TWO nights out in one week. One troll even went as far to call her "disgusting" and a Mother "whose children should be removed."  How ridiculous. But it did make me think.......when did it become okay for us to forget that we are individual, human, people after we have kids? When did it become okay for Mums not to have their very own hobbies, activities, SOCIAL LIVES? Why do we always feel SO GUILTY for doing things that make US happy? Be it a Madonna concert, a weekly game of social netball, a looooong Sunday stroll on your own, or a wine enhanced dance floor session with your favourite girlfriends (I did this after the Em show and…
