Lately I’ve been watching Trinny and Susannah: Mission Norway – pretty much on a daily basis this week during Sportlov. It’s awesome. They’re two ladies who go around helping women who are dressed really blah and they talk about the stuff they’re going through in life that’s put fashion and looking good/feeling good on hold. They’ve met a whole host of women who have been through really challenging times (double mastectomies due to breast cancer, second pregnancy after first pregnancy ended in a stillbirth, divorce, childhood/teenage bullying, being a busy mum…) the list goes on.
Anyway watching TV in Sweden irks me more and more because of the complete lack of censorship. Trinny and Susannah is a show in English obviously, but it’s playing in the middle of the day, and they swear rather a lot (“what the fuck is that you’re wearing?” “I fucking hate it”) and it’s just playing loud and clear. I don’t know about you but if I was a Swedish mum I wouldn’t want my kid swearing in any god damned language thank you.
