CHANGES…. NOT JUST THE SEASONS
ITS FALL AND WE CAN FEEL A CHANGE IN THE AIR. IT HAS COOLED DOWN ALOT AND THE WEEKEND WAS RAINY ALL DAY. IT CERTAINLY FRESHENED THE AIR OUTSIDE. NEEDLESS TO SAY DIDNT GO ANYWHERE. STUCK CLOSE TO HOME AND BASICALLY PUTZED AROUND THE PLACE. THE USUAL WEEKEND HOUSEHOLD THINGS WHICH BRINGS ME TO THE TOPIC ON THIS POST.
A FEW THINGS TO READ (OR COMMENT ON)
A FEW MONTHS AGO I READ AN INTERESTING ARTICLE ABOUT HOW THE WOMEN IN INDIA WERE PROTESTING OR PETITIONING THAT THE MEN NEED TO HELP OUT MORE AROUND THE HOUSE. HMM THUMBS UP TO THAT.
THE WOMEN ARE WORKING AS WELL AS THE MEN , BUT WITH THE LOCKDOWN, THEIR HOUSEKEEPERS WERE NOT ABLE TO COME WORK. SO THEY WERE LEFT TO DO THE WORK THEMSELVES.
NOT MANY HOUSEHOLDS IN EUROPE OR NORTH AMERICA WILL HAVE A HOUSEKEEPER OR EVEN AN NANNY. (PERHAPS THE RICHER AFFLUENT ONLY)
BUT I THINK OVERALL IT IS NOT COMMON.
THERE IS THE IDEA OF EQUALITY WHICH IN SOME EUROPEAN COUNTRIES WOMEN WILL HAVE THE SAME PAY AS A MAN DOING THE SAME JOB, OR MEN WILL TAKE TIMEOFF FOR MATERNITY ETC, BUT I THINK MOST WORK AT HOME IS DONE BY THE WOMEN, NOT THE MEN.
HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU OR YOUR MATE SHARE THE HOUSEHOLD CHORES?.
FOR MYSELF IT IS NOT 50/50 MORE LIKE 75/25.
PS OUR DISHWASHER BROKE DOWN THIS WEEKEND, FILLED WITH A WEEK OF DIRTY DISHES , SO GUESS WHO HAD TO CLEAN THEM? ???
TIME FOR SOME CHANGES!!
REPORT VIA BBC
I have been making some changes on the design on the blog, trying the different themes, but i am not so sure it makes much difference. As the blog is more a place for me to share life culture in Europe , as well as some fashion styles and few other things .
So I thought after five years maybe a little change would be a good idea now.
I liked the look of the NEW magazine format , if you follow or read the blog
it be nice to know what you guys think.
WELL I HOPE YOU HAD A GOOD WEEKEND AND HAVE
A FUN WEEK EVERYONE!
KEEP SAFE PEOPLE!
