A little bit about me

Here’s the story so far….

My name is Mrs M (M for Mummy or Maria – depending on which hat I’m wearing). I have four children, one husband, a bajillion books, CDs and DVDs and eleventy billion ideas in my head.

I guess I see the world the a myriad of lenses; woman, wife, mother, child of Greek migrant parents, Master’s student, largely speaking left wing.

I knew I wanted to be a journalist when I was nine and that’s what I did – I became a journalist. But now I aspire to be a cultural thinker like those smart buggers at The School of Life.

I want to examine the world like Hugh Mackay and Anne Summers, and if I do it right then maybe possibly, maybe…just a for a moment…I’ll say something profound.

It’s an ever changing crazy world we live in. It always has been and that’s the one true constant; the change and the crazy.

So basically my blog is a love letter to my kids more than anything. A record of how I see the world and how we can possibly make sense of it.

I make no claim to have the answers but I have a stack of questions. I’m hoping everyone out there can help me out.
