Erm, or perhaps slipping on a pair of Jandals is simply easier when you pop out than lacing up a pair of shoes?

I did this in the UK and I do it in NZ - we have a no shoes in the house policy so I save time and effort on the doing and undoing of laces.

The barefoot thing however, I do not get.


Anyway, in reply to the OP - I never fail to giggle at middle class (if the classes exist here) Mums who mainly go shopping and/or for coffee dressed in neon lyrca, hair tied back and sunnies on.

To a woman they all look immaculate, so I can only presume they're ALL on their way to do some exercise. How come I've never seen one of these women with red cheeks and hair strewn all over the place looking like they've done a decent session at the gym?

Either that, or they freshen up and put gym clothes on

No, it's a 'look' and seems to me that mums can't walk their littlies to school unless pushing a 'off-road' three wheeler style pushchair and appropriately dressed in lycra sportswear for the occasion.

Agree.

The sometimes anti-women slant on adverts.

Such as a radio advert for a scratch repair, 'pen' that can be used to cover over minor scratches on a car. The advert says, 'ladies you can keep it in your handbag, so you don't have to tell your husband you scratched the car'

The non-pc to the point of offensive for other adverts i.e. the KFC advert that pokes fun at someone who has MH issues manifesting as split personality disorder.

Adverts that have TMI and talk about runny bowel movements, erectile dysfunction, moist bum wipes, 'Dixaflow' prostrate supplements and such like when you're having your tea.

And a side order of Rain Forrest Herbs for me too !

The radio adverts for erectile dysfunction are a, 'treat' too ! I don't really want to know about someone, 'feeling like a young man, again' at 7.42am when I'm driving to work, thank you.

As for one's own ladygarden......whoa ! Hold it there buster !!

What about the adverts telling you to tell your doctor to prescribe you their product. Call me old fashioned but I tend to let the doctor choose what's best for me what with their years and years of training.

It would be very interesting to see an over winter cluster tree.

Thanks for that Bevs just found this.....

St James Park in the heart of Papanui is probably the
best location to see over-wintering monarch butterflies.
On a warm sunny late autumn or early winterís day
head to the childrenís play ground and look into the
largely leafless old trees. There you will see
monarchs clustering together often holding
on to the remaining leaves for support.
Itís a great spot for a picnic
beneath the trees with
monarchs fluttering
in the air
above.

Not far away...hope it's not too late in the winter...
