Okay, so it came to my attention that 21st century men and women would rather have pets (I.e dogs and cats) as opposed to having children. Why????
Come on people, there are a million and one reasons to still get knocked up and pop out some minions. Everything from being more likely to get a seat on the tube/train to having your own personal dishwasher that doesn’t use up electricity. I mean in China being pregnant gives you wifi (see picture below). You could even have your own hand-free for your mobile phone while you kick back to watch the movie he:she has tuned in for you!!! Throwing up and eating huge meals would be totally acceptable. And the much needed afternoon nap would be welcomed and even encouraged.
So why aren’t people planning to have babies
Yes! you read the title correctly and NO this isn’t a feminism or men-hating post (plus why would I hate men, they make good eye candy and provide endless hours of girl chat time). This is in fact me sharing an interesting conversation I had with a Male.
As every red-blooded female would tell you, it is very frustrating when the men in their lives tell them what to do – simply because the know what is best for them. It even ticks them off more when the men believe they know whats right because they feel superior and women are supposed to be the inferior sex.
Well Guess again. I have been told by previously mentioned wise old male that men only feel the need to control women and feel “superior” because they are in fact the Inferior sex! If like me you have a frown on your face trying to figure this out then this next statement would probably make more sense. He said, “well missy, don’t you think the fact God created man first meant he did a better job the second time round”.
so there you have it in the words of unnamed wise man, Men are the inferior sex. Think of that the next time your men tell you they are right (except of course when they are :p)
Okay. I know we have all been there ; you are craving a really good lunch – dim sum, chinese, Italian, French and the list goes on BUT you are either too broke or chained to your desk to indulge in the ultimate lunch. So here are some of the ways I cheat at a fancy meal
I cannot stress how much this simple trick makes eating lunch so much more stress-free for me. It means I can have my lunch ready in 5-10 mins (at work ) and enjoy the rest of the hour eating or reading a good book.
So look into your fridge and think of what you may fancy having for the week on Sunday. Prepare one or more type of salad (my faves bases are couscous and spicy cucumber) and portion these in little pots. Then make use of all that left over Sunday roast, potatoes and veg. You can make a variety of things from pulled pork to veg and potato cakes.
You can also make your pancake mix ahead and even fry then (they are better thin, crepe sizes) and pop them in the fridge as well. Wraps works just as well.
But tiny jars for condiments and sauces. Baguettes, crackers (or bread biscuits) as they work well as basis of a good snack.
Portion any other bits you like. Fruits, chicken, pudding – yes you can even enjoy a. Sticky toffee pudding at work.

I love this picture for so many reasons! It helps show so many people who ask me if I am Feminist or not – the answer being I am not your definition of Feminist because I would honestly like cheaper Car Insurance and some other special treatment (like shopping discounts), so I don’t class myself as a true feminist.
But the picture above is an answer to some people’s cries that a woman’s only place is not in the Kitchen!!! – right?! but also some would say this is sexist as only the MEN are allowed work in this particular kitchen. Which is in essence a discrimination against the women who may want to work here. But hey! you can’t have it all
To be fair I don’t think a whole lot of women work in commercial kitchens – I find it is mostly men who are the chefs but man the women head chefs I have had the pleasure of dining at their establishment can cook a storm.
so guys, tell me what you think – Is this SEXIST or a step in favour of FEMINISM
