Episode 26

I am really enjoying your discussions on this podcast. I was really quite interested in the ‘period’ chat. I’ve thought, since I was a teenager and discovered that the pill was free, that all sanitary protection should be provided free of cost as periods can’t be avoided. For context, I am now 60.

BABY BOTTLE OMG

Omg Davina!!! I used to do the baby bottle thing too when I was in my early teens!!! My dad thought it was weird, but i did it at my mums and they were divorced. Maybe it’s a divorced kid thing? Who knows. But good to know I’m not a massive weirdo! Either that or we both are 😂 I love you two, you fuel my morning walks - keep on going! Never stop doing these podcast 😍
