Celebrate Women on International Women’s Day

Today (Saturday, 8th March) is International Women’s Day

A day to celebrate the social, political and economic achievements of women throughout the world.

And, let’s face it, where would we be without women? Whether a mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, aunt, partner, wife. Think about the women in your life and what they mean to you today.

And of course, you could also celebrate with the Bluestone campaign to make it #motheringmarch instead of just Mothering Sunday – time to celebrate all the great things that mums and grandmothers do for us.

Anyway, we were taking in the office this week and we came up with some reasons why women are so great and some things that the men cannot compete with them on - although we’ve included some of those tongue-in-cheek ones as well. What do you think?

Make life

Truly a remarkable ability and has to be at the top of the list. Sure as the saying goes "It takes two to tango".  But to be fair ladies, you do most of the work.

More candles on the cake

A well-known fact and so we are reminded often. Women live longer than men. I don't know why but the black widow spider springs to mind.

Sorry, it’s a bad week. Where’s the chocolate.

This conversation between a man and a women is like when you try to join the positive ends of two magnets. Men just stay away.

Cover up bad days

We have all been there, woken up looking like we have had a fight with a rake in a bed of Velcro in our sleep. Hair everywhere and face a mess. But with today's modern technology of strengtheners, curling things, hair dryers like a hurricane and make up. - bang you would never know as the women seem to be able to transform themselves instantly.

Wear whatever

Ladies can wear almost anything and it's classed as fashion. Just look at Lady GAGA. For the guys it’s trousers or shorts, t-shirts or shirts. Other than that there isn't really much else.

Um help please?

There just isn't that manly need to DO IT ALL YOURSELF. If you need help or a hand you just ask and it's sorted.

Gain height in seconds

And boy can women. Some of these heels are like stilts and at times look so pointy and deadly they could be out of Kill Bill.
