It’s that time of the month again, and it hits you like a red tidal wave- even though you knew it was on its way a week ago. Each and every month it’s never a welcomed visit from Mother Nature. The door is closed, locked and bolted yet she still forces her way in. She’s got the worst manners.

Although, she may occasionally be welcomed with open arms either as a sign our bodies are running like clock work, or to give us the heads up that we won’t be needing to run to Mothercare anytime soon.

Whether we like it or not, there are things that we’re all guilty of thinking and doing when Aunt Flo comes to stay for the week. Let’s see which ones you find yourself nodding along to, or maybe which ones you haven’t had the pleasure of experiencing…

Shark approaching…

When it’s that time of the month again it’s never nice, and it’s never at the right time (if there is a right time)…

1. White clothes are off the cards, period.

Wearing white when Mother Nature comes to visit is like wearing a short skirt and asking your Dad if you look okay…

It just won’t work in your favour; you’ll always come out the loser. 1-0 to Mother Nature, again. 

2. Nappies aren’t just for babies…

It’s finally time to go to bed and you couldn’t be happier. But, you also don’t want to have to wash the sheets…

If you’re extra heavy you might double up to avoid a leak in the night, or you might even buy some special ‘nappy’ pants- which have every area covered, literally

3. Can I sit there?

Sitting down takes some serious planning. You’ve got to assess the colour and fabric of the chair before you even think about it…
