… In any of the (many) mistakes that officials made in any of the premier league games yesterday.

A red card - a male officialPhew, we are relieved…. It seems that it’s nothing to do with your gender, if you make a mistake as a man… but everything to do with your gender, if you don’t make any mistakes at all.

We’d like to thank Gary Lineker for the superb little dig he made about one of the mistakes (made by a man) in one of the games yesterday. It’s good to know that high profile men are finding the whole débacle an important enough issue to not let it go just yet.

We are thrilled to be taking part in the WOW (Women of the World) Festival on the Southbank this weekend.

We LOVE Sewing Circus at Pinkstinks.

"We use bright, colourful and fun fabrics - designing playwear to be age-appropriate and comfortable. Every print we use is unisex, for both girls and boys. There are no divisions based on gender and we won't tell children what to like based on harmful stereotypes."


Is this really the 21st Century or are we dreaming? How is it even possible that this kind of stuff is sold in John Lewis of all places.
