I imagined I was waking upon a 100 acre farm in the middle of nowhere this morning. I am in fantasy I will be happy there. I know this is dangerous. But I am excited. Growing vegetables, baking bread, looking after Little Messyfish, doing arts and crafts and housewifery. It's like a dream come true and a major step backwards for feminism!
mr messyfish says :
"I reckon it's the new feminism. Doing what you love and getting supported to do it."
It is mr messyfish, you are right. There is a whole network of " housewifes " blogging about it. It's a female underground ( yet highly public) resurgence! One blogger has a whole button on her blog called "housewifery " and lots of helpful tips.
With the impending death of the supermum we need to all learn how to hold a baby, breastfeed, and cook wholesome meals again. The pram that holds the latte whilst enabling you to go jogging will be a relic of the past. A strange item that we look at in amazement and say... " why was it so important to stick our baby in a cart and speed them through the city streets amongst the pollution just so we could get skinny?" I bet a few Thai restaurants will feel the pinch in the next decade as we stay at home and learn to cook slowly again.
And I won't even begin on how it will benifit the next generation!
