Thoughts of a middle aged man…..21 January 2013


OK I think I have made up my mind, I don’t like MasterChef The Professionals, I just cannot get into it. The only thing that makes it worth watching is the fact that it is not a rerun which I am heartily sick of, so you have me until something better comes along.

I should probably keep my opinion on this next subject to myself, but you know me, I have an opinion on everything. Breastfeeding in public, now I do not have a problem with this just as long as it is done discreetly. Most women would not flash their breasts at any other time so what makes it alright to do so when breastfeeding, and if it is OK to do so when breastfeeding why be such prudes at other times, it seems like a double standard to me.

I may be old-fashioned but I can remember my aunts always had a strategically placed blanket or a cloth nappy when required. Hang on a moment, mothers don’t use cloth nappies any more do they, you can’t exactly sling a disposable nappy over your shoulder can you. Disposable nappies, that is a whole other subject that I think I have touched on before so I won’t elaborate further tonight, suffice to say disposable nappies do have their place, but women today just take the easy way out.

On a different matter entirely today I had a nice long chat with an old friend I have not seen for years, we were very close as children and in our teens but we drifted apart. I am very pleased we have found each other again, thank you Mr Facebook, and I am now looking forward to my god-daughter’s wedding on 10 August where I hope we can have an even longer chat.

Now that I have upset every mother on the planet I will withdraw for tonight and await the tirade that I know will come my way.

Thank you for reading.
