So, here we are, my first post. Very conceivably it will also be my last as I am a working Mum to a one year old boy, Duckling, and not exactly blessed with large swaths of time to dick about with blog writing. The enthusiasm is there though, so hopefully I can manage at least one post per month. Ish.
I'm not quite sure yet what this blog is going to be about, which probably isn't a very good start. I do know though that I have a lot of ideas bouncing around in my head that need an outlet other than tipsy debates with my long suffering husband, Drake. Some are ideas about motherhood, others are about politics, feminism, or current affairs. Or the merits of Soreen. Probably the uniting factor however is the itch to push against stereotypes and the little boxes that society likes to put us in. I am a 33 year old, white middle class woman living in suburbia by the Thames. I embrace that - I can't avoid it - but call me a Yummy Mummy and I will hit you.
So off we go.
