too froufrou for me
Paper bags, Laura Ashley style print, in the women’s ‘restroom’ (UK toilet) cubicles. No bins in the cubicles.
“Serviettes” are removed and placed in these bags. For me it’s a process that leaves me feeling like lady Macbeth. Bloody handed. Not discreet at all. Especially when I have to carry the blood stained paper bag into the public wash area to reach the bin.
Not something I’ve had to do in the UK in the last 7 years living there, in shop toilets, in workplace toilets, in train station toilets, in friends homes. Nowhere.
I’m changing my sanitary protection to use try out a menstrual cup process I used last time I lived here. They lasted a whole day, meaning that I could remove and insert them in the comfort of my own bathroom, accompanied by a bath.
With BUBBLES! Hooray!
Not a froufrou rose in sight.
