I think its about a typical family. Random


Madeleine Ann Sewter | 19 May 2016

I love the repetition of the “frying pan without a handle.” the subject of the poem, but really about the put-upon Mum, and so truly Mum like of Mums everywhere who feel under valued. Reminds me of my own very busy working Mum who had a million things to attend to when she walked through the door. She would interject frequently through every demand, problem or request she was bombarded with with the phrase ” I haven’t even taken my hat off yet!” So thanks for prompting the memories and mostly for making me laugh!
