On waxing and feminism

I have a Brazilian. And I’m a feminist Not an easy admission to make (the Brazilian, not the feminist bit) on the internet when it could go out to millions of people (god I hope my children don’t read this!),  but one brought about by reading yet another ‘feminist’ article on why Brazilian waxing is …

It’s winter and I’m cold

I’m living with the heater nazi. Doc, as I’m my partner will henceforth be known in this blog, doesn’t feel the cold, so doesn’t think anybody else should either.

Wicked step mother

OMFG. I just realised I’m going to be a step-mother!! At least I think I am. If I move in with my partner and his 16 year old son does that make me a step mother? Is it compulsory? Can’t I continue to be just “Dad’s girlfriend”???
