Mothers Day, women's work and other things

I seriously do not do mornings which is why on Mother's Day I sleep in!

Then I got to thinking about mothers being housewives and found all these wonderful pictures:
All this scrubbing and suds are sooooooo exhausting....but if I don't do it who will? After all it's my job.
Aren't we two happy girls.....washing and scrubbing our clothes! Right next to my gorgous new fridge. Next my darling is going to buy me a washing machine.

We have sooooooooo much fun hanging the clothes out together. She's gonna really know how to do it all when she grows up to be a housewife and mother just like me.


Bloody Ironing...........................
But now I'm all ready to clean...........Oh I just can't wait!



And I love my new big hoover......get's that dust right out of everything!
Sometimes I even dress up for cleaning.......and I make sure I top the outfit off with a gorgeous pair of yellow gloves to save my manicure. Can't have hubby thinking that my hands would be ruined.


Now down to the meals...........all those lovely things I cook three times a day.........
******but first I must visit the shops, get the trolley, load it up with food and stuff, pay for it, pack it and go home and unload it all! It's such a joy and I can't wait to do it every week!
I can't wait to get into the kitchen....

Though trying to work out recipes can be a tad tricky...........so many meals to cook and they all have to be different....
especially when I am budgeting................


And trying to get it all right so everything finishes at the same time can be fraught with tensions!

Sometimes I just swirl my way round the kitchen and have fun.
And other times.....though I don't say it often.... I get a bit fed up and TIRED especially when I look out the window and see the clothes on the line and know I have to go and get them off, fold them and iron the bloody things......Ohhhhhhhhhh...........did I say that!
and of course at the end of the day when all I want to do is

I have to get ready and..............



Hopefully I think the more modern woman thinks this way............................




though I did come across this one........


so it's still going on......
Sometimes I just want to..................



Anyway onto other things.....
I've done a couple of things in the last fortnight...
A purple pair of slippers just for my toes!



and I finished my Mum's Scarf for Mother's Day...

and I've started a Knitty/Crochet thingy which will no doubt evolve into something or other.........don't ask me what..............it will all become clear eventually. Maybe it will just be a thing that I love doing!

Now I'm off to read a book .................. have at least a dozen that I want to read from the Library!
Eggs on toast for tea cause I had a bang up huge lunch with my Mum and Dad and friends.............excellent........but I'm stuffed to the gills.

This just came across my mind that maybe you would like to see old Finnish addvertisements because they are so much alike American addvertisements, because USA has been our IDOL for ever! Everything new and wonderfull came fronm USA in old days: music, clothes etc.. And Finnish people in common can speak a little English but they don't like to speak Swedish although Swedish is our second official language. In the west coast of Finland live old people and young too who don't speak Finnish only Swedish. In offices they have to be able to speak Swedish too if it is needed. But that ADVERTISEMENT PAGE IS : http://kavelylla.vuodatus.net It is in finnish but you can look at those beautiful old pics !!!!!
