Radio Gaga

I was on the radio last week.

Nova 100 was on in the background as I did the usual morning stuff – breakfast for the kids, think about having a shower, clean the breakfast off the table/floor/forehead of the child, get kids dressed, think about having a shower, yell at kids for fighting over a toy, find more breakfast smooshed into the carpet, clean up breakfast smoosh, think about having a shower, let the shrieking cat outside, set shrieking children in front of the television and maybe, just maybe, actually have a shower.

"So tell us what you think?" Hughesy said. "Is being a stay at home parent to little kids boring?"


He was talking to me, he had to be talking to me.

So when he told me to call now, I ummed and I ahhed and I figured I'd left it too late but then dialled the number anyway and voila! The Little Mumma on the radio. Plugging her blog, no less!

I am a one-woman PR machine. With breakfast smoosh on my dressing gown.

Listen to it here.

This link takes you to the Nova page and the player is a grey strip at the top.  If you want to hear the intro to the segment, that starts at 49.45 minutes. I start talking at around the 51.10 mark. You can skip forward to that time but it needs to load first so give it a few minutes.


Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    Hilarious! Loved it! And yeah, nothing sexy about this mumma business. “That’s why Jesus invented DVDs” – amen to that.

    As for “Lee”, who spoke after you? She needs to replace her sense of humour chip – I think it’s malfunctioning.

    Everyone sounds so strine after being States-side for the last eighteen months (but you, my love, sound adorable) x

  2. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Thanks, love. Yes, I have some thoughts about Lee that I’m going to blog about tonight. Good old, Lee. What will become of her when the kids are all grown and gone?

    And yes, I imagine it sounded hardcore strine – Hughesy alone is strine to the core!
