In A Junk Mail Funk
According to The Weekend Australian Magazine today, the average Australian adult receives 16 junk mail items per week. Eeek - what a waste of paper! And I'd like to take a bit of a straw poll - do ANY of us actually read those endless supermarket catalogues? I have had a long term battle of wills with my local junk mail letter box filler people - an endless stream of stickers applied to my letterbox expressing my desire not to receive junk mail in varying degrees of fawning politeness seem to be steadily ignored and then, mysteriously, removed. When the unwanted advertising catalogues do inevitably end up in my letterbox, they don't even make it through the front door, let alone get read. If anyone has more success than me getting their "No Junk Mail" sticker to be noticed - whats your secret?!
I'm a 29 year old newish mother of one beautiful Booba navigating the transition from being a busy full-time professional to being a busy full-time baby entertainer, stylist, seamstress, chef, masseuse, personal attendant....at the same time as trying not to go insane and making a vague effort to think about and discuss something other than babies!
