I’m a mummy blogger. I kind of fail at it most of the time because I think this whole motherhood caper is mother trucking hard. I write the occasional recipe and household ‘tip’ aka how to avoid it and why I hate it so much. Really the only thing that makes me fit the old stereotype mold of mummy blogger is that I have a child who is along for the joy ride.
Now that we are on the countdown to the fat man visiting, it’s time to start thinking about what to get our loved ones. Or the people you have to get gifts for. I’ve seen a few gift lists getting around already but I haven’t found one that is in the budget of struggle street. I couldn’t give Devil Spawn the gifts I do without the joys of Christmas Layby. For everyone else, I usually do a mad dash in the month before Christmas by trying to find shit that is cheap but doesn’t look it.
For the Devil Mama:
Retro Slushy Machine, Kmart: $39
As soon as I saw this baby in Kmart I knew I had to have one. So I could share with the whole family. Ah hell who am I kidding, my first thought was ‘Woo vodka slushies’.
Slushy Magic, Big W: $14.86
Slushy without the mess? You had me at hello. This bad boy would be great for more vodka slushies. Nom nom nom
Mighty Peep-Toe Heel, Target: $50
I love a hot pair of heels. Sadly they do not love me. I would buy these just to walk around the house in!
A6 Patten Journal, Typo: $6.95
It’s no secret that I love notebooks. When Typo opened up near me I nearly wet my pants with excitement. It was a porn shop for the stationary lover. I could spend hundreds in there. Then my bank balance kindly reminds me, calm down fuck head you haven’t got enough money to buy all the things.
