Single mother expense rorts

Bloody Santa forgot to bring me an unlimited expense account, a platinum credit card and a billionaire husband, so as a single mother in 2014 I’m right into cash for comments. An empty wallet fills the face with wrinkles after all. Single mother ailments include: regret, despair and irrational thoughts; hang on that’s just motherhood, single or not.

Raising children can be a financial disaster so single mothers need a steady source of income that doesn’t involve prostitution or selling said children on eBay. Large bills and small children are a stressful mix so we can pretend that everything will be fine or delve into the murky world of political expense rorts. I propose a single mother ‘cash for comments’ scheme, where every time a politician states the bleeding obvious on television he is fined and the money put towards raising the children of our nation who have been abandoned by fathers who won’t pay child support. I’m sure Tony Abbott will love it.

    Ha! Love the Phyllis Diller quote. I guess it’s gonna be another year of unpaid bills here too. For the first time in my life I’m not driving three kids in three directions while nagging at the fourth – the first time in my life I have a bit of uninterrupted writing time. So what does ex-hub do? Halves my maintenance! Of course! With his gremlin new wifey on his shoulder.. Oh well. I think we will make something of this year even so.

      Oh you lucky lady! All I want to do is write. This year I’ll have 3 kids at 3 different schools so I’m getting some writing time in before the madness begins again at the end of the summer school holidays. Ex sounds familiar, they don’t stay single long do they? More material for our work! All the best for your writing adventures and a happy healthy year, it will be great year for your writing, I can feel it.
