Need a giggle? Then head straight over to Twitter and check out @HighgateMums - be warned, though, I've just lost an hour. Time well spent though - husband thought I was 'working' so it got me out of managing bath-time.
The premise is preposterously simple. (I'm trying to get down the with Highgate massive, here, so forgive the long words, darlings.) Basically 'normal' mums share things they've overheard North London mums actually say. It's nearly as good as when Waitrose asked customers to tweet their reasons for shopping at Waitrose, and people shared things like this:
"I shop at Waitrose because, darling, Harrods is just too much of a trek mid-week."
We discovered this thanks to The Poke - so I have them to thank for narrowly escaping bath-time, and one of my fave tweets mentioned is:
"Mum, can you not put so much algae in my smoothie? It tastes of Japan."
Can't. Stop. Laughing.
It's like first world problems AND THEN SOME. I practically used to be one myself, soI feel I'm allowed to laugh. (Ok, I was more an impoverished Kentish Town mum but never mind. Details, people, details.)
So - share your favourite overheard Mum-ism over on our Facebook page...
