    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.
