This isn’t somebody who is charitably campaigning to improve postnatal care for women. She is someone with a product to sell. A reusable water bottle works really well. I am betting that nappies and ice packs are a whole lot cheaper and just as effective as the product she is offering. Read more

I think about the time I posted the Margaret Atwood quote here and got flamed for days from men who thought it of vital importance that I recognize that it is #NotAllMen.

I have found shoes at Marshall’s that had no business being there and that is why I love Marshall’s. I check Marshall’s now the way my dog always checks the back left corner of our backyard fence: once there was a possum there, any day there might be another. Read more

I loathed P.E at school, despite being a sporty, relatively athletic kid (I did both summer and winter Read more
