Rhubarb’s Pointless Guide to Life
Hello. I’m Rhubarb. When I’m not working I frequent a site called Mumsnet, you might have heard of it? Lots of mums with strong opinions all vying to be heard against the general rabble. To be honest I only really started a blog because I found out there was going to be advertising revenue from it with Mumsnet, although once you share it out amongst all the bloggers banging on about their knitting patterns and cake recipes there won’t be much to go around will there?
I don’t write about knitting or cakes, so if that’s what you were expecting then I suggest you go to Netmums? I’m mainly concerned about how I ended up being married with two kids and a mortgage to pay when I had thought these were the biggest sins I could commit. But then when I was 12 I made a pact with my best friend that we would kill ourselves when we got to 30 because that was far too old to even consider going on living. We didn’t just in case you are wondering, not that I like spoilers or anything. I no longer consider suicide to be the best option against ageing; I haven’t started listening to Cliff Richard and buying comfy cardigans from Littlewoods just yet, but I do struggle against the monotony of real life and will go out of my way to make things a little more interesting.
So grab a glass of vino, park yer bum and have a peruse through my ponderings. You might get a laugh out of it, you might not, but I guarantee it’ll be better than reading about the latest knitting campaigns for Africa…
