The reason why

I have been out of sorts this week.

Go ahead, roll your eyes. I know what you’re thinking:

Sweet stupidity

I did something dumb yesterday.

Old Tuesday, New Wednesday – happy MMXX!

Yesterday was Tuesday. Usually, Tuesdays are double booked late into the night with kids at activities, but yesterday was quiet.

According to every social media platform, yesterday was the last day of the year and decade. And everyone was in a reflective, social mood.

To me, it felt like a regular day. 😉

The thing about the ice cream

Today, I went to a grocery story to load up for the next few days. It wasn’t until I was just about to pull out of the parking lot when I thought I’d better check my phone. I had this nagging feeling I was missing something.

Sure enough, there was a text from the girl child.

How do you categorize and label your blog?

Some of us blog to empty our heads into the keyboard, as Jonathan would say. Others focus on Perfect Moments (Anthony), or gratitude (TracyEllen). Many of us just type randomly about this or that and get on with our day.

Rules for women who travel alone in the 1850s

A few months ago I stumbled across a rather interesting (and ridiculous) historical article which described how to have sex with your husband in the 1960s. The rules the women were taught to follow are hugely out of place in today’s society, but it nevertheless served as an insight to how things used to be (in the not too distant past) and, what’s more, how things still are in many societies today.

This morning I came across another similar article, but this one has to do with travel. More specifically, how a woman in the 1850s was to travel if she didn’t have a male escort to accompany her.

Stupid things I have done I am not proud of

At the grocery store one time, I picked up an item and put it in the cart. At the next aisle, I changed my mind about the item and put it on the shelf in the wrong aisle where it does not belong. So if you see a jar of Nutella among the olive oil bottles, you’ll know it was me who shopped there earlier.
