10 things I really hate about the way I look

My height - I so wish I was taller. It is so hard to be authorative to your children when you have to look up to do so.

My hair - I now have grey and I can't always be arsed to colour it.

My teeth - not straight and yes Mother I do regret not wearing my braces now just like you told me I would.

My wrinkle - oh I have a fair few but I have 1 that is on my left hand side of my mouth that really bothers me.

My not being a size 8 anymore - I am too small to carry off any other size

My boobs - I cannot carry off sophisticated chic when I am this curvy and men do talk to them, a lot.

My freckles - I have tons of them in the summer

My legs - runners legs, best kept hidden

My body hair - I hate the faff of keeping legs, eyebrows, Hollywood in shape but I have been brainwashed into thinking hair is unpleasant.

My lack of youthful glow - if you can buy some in a bottle please let me know from where.

Ranty auntie has left the building, normal middle aged Pollyanna service will resume tomorrow. I blame it on the back to work after being on holiday and still not doing that feckin tax return personally.

Never mind. For the joys of memory loss will kick in soon! Grey hairs, a size 8 figure etc etc will all be forgotten. ;-) Have a nice day at work. I'm on half term. YIPEE!! TFx

You have GOT to be joking! If YOU can't be happy with yourself, what chance is there for the dumpy rest of us? I think I'll go have some chocolate.

And, you can't be fat if you have runner's legs! Love to you for this x

Gwen, if they bottle youthful glow, give us a bell! I'd love to look like you - even with your 'imperfections'.

But I'll keep the gingerish hair as we take longer to grey - so I've read before!

Men certainly like to talk to our nipples! I used to be embarassed by that, now I use it to my advantage. It feels good!

TF - enjoy your half term, no, I'm not a bit jealous. x

Shirley - it's because you haven't seen me in real life, I am a wee fat mammy, truly

Fhina - ta for the reminder, due to the postal stike it'll be late anyway. I have fat runners legs x

Lena - I only put pictures that make me look normal, you haven't seen me in real life :}

Secretia - I'm not surprised when you look like that, hell I'd be talking to your nipples

Lolly - you seriously wouldn't want them ;0

NB - I don't know what to say to that, truly.

You know, I was just looking at your pic on facebook yesterday and I thought how beautiful you are!

Becca - thank you, that is the picture I use because it is the one that makes me look human, I very rarely if ever look like that in real life !!! Hope you're feeling better xxx
