Yesterday, March 8th, was Woman's Day. This occasion had previously passed me by, but in Bosnia it is a BIG deal. All day I saw men wandering around clasping flowers, chocolates, little cutsie trinket things for the women in their lives. Women are allowed to finish work early and they go and have their hair done, wear new outfits and generally glam it up. When I dropped the boys off at nursery this morning their teachers rushed up to wish me a Happy Woman's Day. It's a sort of combination between Valentines Day and Mothers Day, and I have to say that I quite like the idea of having one celebration for it all, that everyone can participate in.
Obviously I spent the day relaxing at a spa, to return to a clean house, walked dog, cleaned and fed children before relaxing in a bath of rose petals supping champagne and luxuriating in my own gorgeousness. Or maybe not.
