Once upon a bright but frosty morning, a woman named Lauren was given a Ford Kuga Titanium. Just like that. The keys were hers. But only for six weeks. She was told to make the very most of this time and to take her chariot on many magical adventures and to write back with tales of her travels. After six weeks, on the strike of midnight the car would be turned back into a pumpkin. Or something like that. So Lauren set out on her adventures. Her first was to the mystical Kingdom of Coles, which is the only kind of adventure a mother of a two-year-old gets to endure enjoy. This is her tale….
They say mums can lift cars off crushed babies. Apparently a mother’s love gives us super human strength.
I think it also has something to do with all the shit we have to carry around every day.
The mum lifting the car hasn’t only got her primal love and mother’s instinct working in her favour. She’s also been lugging around a lump of a child, a nappy bag, eight bags of shopping, various toys and entertainment devices all day, every day. It’s a helluva workout.
It also makes you feel like a packhorse, pining for the days when leaving the house meant picking up your clutch and your keys and walking out the front door. What folly.
