    Did you know it was International Women's Day yesterday? Probably not, it only gets paid 77% of the attention of other holidays.

    What? They have a day? Why don't we men have one? That doesn't seem even remotely equitable.😲

    Then women have a long way to go to get to 77% of the days.

    Oh, geeeez, not this "same old, same old".

    Women, on the other hand, already know that every day is men's day.

    Can I ask you to mention that "fact" to my partner. Seems she thinks it's the reverse. 🙁

    And on the subject of women the hijab has gone all haute couture.
    Do you see yourself sporting one Torunn?
    I quite fancy that mysterious avenging Bond woman look. 🙂

    I tell you what, when all women, everywhere, are paid the same as men, then we'll give you a Men's Day, how's that?

    As long as it is a free choice and doesn't represent anything else.

    Of course.
    I thought those women on the catwalk looked very glamorous and I’m always looking
    for new ideas to keep my wild hair under control. I’ve got a fake Russian hat
    for the cold, a bush hat for gardening, a bobble hat for the wind and a sixties Donovan type hat
    for shopping.

    Those women look wonderful in everything and so would you. Your wild Welsh hair is so charming.

    Lol, thank you, but my hair type would really be better suited to your cold dry climate.
    The Welsh damp weather is what causes the frizz. Most women here spend a half
    hour straightening their hair each morning. Curly hair is considered most unfashionable
    to Welsh women but I like my cave woman look.
