Lady of Leisure

3 August 2006

As much as I love being a parent, sometimes people forget I am a NORMAL PERSON! I do have a life. I do have a personality outside my family. And I DO like talking about things that are not children related.

It’s always been a huge conversation stopper at parties and functions, when someone asks me “What do you do?”. I used to say proudly, “I’m a stay at home mother…” And find myself repeating the whole “No, I don’t work. Yes, I love hanging out with my kids. No, I’m not going back to work soon. Blah blah blah.”

Now I like to joke and say I’m a “Lady of leisure – and I work all day at spending my husband’s money. It’s actually harder than it sounds, but I completely recommend it.”

I once tried to joke about being a mail-order bride, but the person got a bit confused when they discovered I DID like to cook and clean and I accidentally used the Thai name for mint basil.

Anyway, we’re going to the WA Web Awards function on the 18th August. Are you going? Have you bought tickets? Are you going to say hi? And most importantly… what are you going to wear?!?
